Alicia Witt’s “heart is broken” after the tragic death of her parents last month.

Robert Witt, 87, and Diane Witt, 75, were found dead at their home in Worcester, Massachusetts on December 20 by police conducting a welfare check on behalf of the actress and her cousin .

The Walking Dead star confirmed their deaths to the local newspaper at the time before stepping away from the spotlight, and she finally addressed the tragedy in a lengthy Facebook post on Tuesday.

In the post, the singer revealed that she hadn’t been allowed into her ‘fiercely stubborn’ parents’ house for many years because they refused to make repairs and she was unaware they weren’t. had no heating when they died.

“I hadn’t been allowed into my parents’ house for over a decade; every time I offered to get something fixed for them, they refused to allow workers into their house,” she explained. “I begged, cried, tried to reason with them, tried to convince them to let me help them move – but each time they got mad at me, telling me I had no right to tell them how to live their life and that they had everything under control.

“I had no idea their warmth had died out. I will never understand how or why they made the choice not to tell me, to not let me help them with this. My heart is broken.

“If I could have told them ‘you’re going to break my heart and the hearts of everyone who loves you with a worst case scenario ending if you don’t let us help you’ – I still think they would have made the same choices, they were unwilling to make any more.

The Twin Peaks star shared that she attended their funeral earlier this month and thanked the funeral directors for taking steps to ensure she had complete privacy.

She concluded her post by writing, “Our last words to each other were ‘I love you’. That part was simple; never in doubt. They loved me so much. I loved them so much.”

The cause of death of his parents has not yet been revealed.
