The woman accused of brutally killing a Portsmouth man with an SUV had nothing but good things to say about him in the months leading up to his tragic death.
Law Enforcement says Brooklyn Frazie chased Scott Donahoe across the county in an SUV before slamming into his motorcycle on a busy stretch of US 52 in New Boston, dragging him, and then running over him again. Donahoe was pronounced dead shortly after at SOMC.
Frazie’s Facebook profile paints a happier picture. In the section where she describes herself, Frazie says, “There are many reasons I get out of bed each day. But, my favorite ones are: (her children, names redacted) & Scott.
Back on September 6, she posted images of a Labor Day gathering the two had thrown at their home.
However, a public post earlier in the summer hinted at trouble in the relationship. “I never put our business out for everyone to see. Scott and I have a great relationship and we always have. We’ve actually been told several times that we “make people sick” because we’re so “cute” and it’s obvious to everyone that we love each other very much. And, they’re right. But, we are human and we have problems and arguments like anybody else does. We have had sort of a rough go round the past few months. Nothing HUGE, or life changing. Just definitely bickering more and spending less time together than usual. Some everyday life dynamics switched up. So, naturally, our lifestyle and relationship did, too. But, again, Scott and I do have a special kind of something. A connection like no other. I could never even picture attempting to share a life with someone else. He is my person. My best friend. And I know that I am his. Monday we had the most amazing day in Chillicothe. It was gorgeous weather, had dinner at Golden Corral and then he took me to the Hopewell Indian Reserve and it was incredible. We took a long walk, talked, laughed and took in our surroundings. Constantly in disbelief at what amazing human beings Indians were and how important they were, and still remain today. But, I just wanted to share this to be sure I never forget it. I love you, Scott. And I can’t wait to have countless more amazing days with you. You really do complete my life .”
Back in April, the accused killer had nothing but praise for her victim, “f you would’ve told me anytime before April 12th, 2021…that I would have somehow snagged one of the most amazing men on Earth and, even more so SOMEHOW, held onto him for two years, 6 days and counting… I would have probably stood right there until you called your Dr. to have your head checked. I’ve said it to y’all before, and I’ll say it again. The day Scott Donahoe walked into my life, COMPLETELY OUT OF NOWHERE, I was in the worst mental state I have EVER been in. And I’ve been to a lot of dark places. Mentally and physically.(I assure you, my amazing son got me thru those few years. He was and still is the reason I get up each day.) Scott gave a life back to me, and a good one. The parts that someone I had regretfully let into my life, took from me and I had become someone I didn’t even recognize. But, then, Scott happened in our lives. He is the best thing that’s ever happened to us. If you don’t know Scott, let me fill you in.
He’s honest, sometimes to a fault.
He’s loyal, also sometimes to a fault.
He’s hilarious. The driest humor you’ve ever seen.
He’s MacGyver Junior….He’s a man of many, many talents.
He gets along with EVERYBODY. And I do mean literally everybody. It drives me crazy sometimes. Lol (that’s why all of our friends were so surprised when he got into a physical altercation a few weeks ago)
He sees the good in everything and in everyone. Also, sometimes to a fault.

He’s extremely patient. I’m totally kidding. He has zero patience for most things (sorry babe)
Everyday, Scott has to have a purpose. A goal, a sense of satisfaction/success. He has to feel like he’s contributing, helping, doing SOMETHING to make life simpler, better, anything positive. I love that about him.
He is very OCD. Every single thing we have has to have a place. I know my not so awesome housewife skills have to drive him completely bonkers. But, he stays. Day after day, he stays. And loves me more each day than he did the one before. He leaves sweet, positive affirmations all around the house for me. He let’s me love him the way I want to love him. Most of the time Well, Scottie, I may not be able to find matching socks very quickly, or know how to get through an entire day without veering off of our plans or timeline, but, I know your place in my life. And where I want you to stay everyday, for the rest of my life. And that’s anywhere. Everywhere. Wherever I am, I want you there with me. You are my best friend. My love. My everything. Happy Two Year Anniversary, babe. I look forward to many, many more.
Oh, and guys, he thinks he’s funny when we take pics. I will literally go into shock the day he finally gives me a good one “
According to a relative of Donahoe, those feelings took a drastic turn when he decided to break up with Frazie and that animosity led to his death.
Frazie is currently charged with murder and reckless homicide. She’s due back in Portsmouth Municipal Court on October 5 for a preliminary hearing.
