Steamgirls Member Tsukimiya Karen has Passed Away

Yesterday I was reading about the two members of the KPop Group Ladies` Code passing away from injures from a car crash. I thought to myself if this happened to a JPop Idol that we write about on our site, what I would say.

Little did I know that a few hours later, I`d find myself doing just that. It`s not just any Idol but an Idol that I viewed as one of my favorites. Steamgirls Member Tsukimiya Karen.

A short time ago a statement was released through her agency Alice Project of a letter sent from her father.
There are not a lot of details of what took place, in the letter her father said that Karen had died in early July [July10th] from an accident and he apologized for not releasing the news sooner. Karen`s last tweet and blog posts were July 7 and 9th.

Karen was known as being sweet and her charm point was wearing fake glasses. Karen was 17 years old and had been off stage for several months dealing with anxiety,panic,depression  related issues and had suffered a set back last December.
Karen`s father has asked that her blog and twitter remain open so Karen`s words can live on. Alice Project has set up an address to send photos , fan memories,blessings for Karen to.

Karen will be missed dearly by family, fans, members of her group and by me as well. Karen was one of the first Alice Project members to first follow Pure Idol Heart`s Twitter account.
