A member of the state Board of Education died Tuesday afternoon, three days after she was attacked in a Raleigh home, her family said in a statement.

Kathy Taft, 62, had been on life-support at WakeMed’s intensive care unit, suffering from a severe head injury.

Raleigh police prematurely reported Taft’s death Tuesday morning, but they retracted that report. Her family issued a statement shortly before 1 p.m. to confirm her death.

Police haven’t released many details of the ongoing investigation since Taft, who lives in Greenville, was found Saturday morning inside the home at 2710 Cartier Drive, near Oberlin Road and Glenwood Avenue.
