Just in... sad news for the children of Country Music's Mindy McCready, she passed away from an apparent suicide today. Mindy has been in trouble for years and her many attempts at drug rehab failed. Just sad like Whitney....
Country star Mindy McCready has passed away at the age of 37, E! News reports.
"At 3:31 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 17, deputies from the Cleburne County Sheriff's Office were dispatched to a report of gun shots fired."
"Officers arrived on the scene at 3:58 p.m. and discovered the body of 37-year-old Melinda Gayle McCready on the front porch of the residence…Ms. McCready was pronounced dead at the scene from what appears to be a single self-inflicted gunshot wound. At this time family members have been notified of the incident. Ms. Mcready will be transported to the Arkansas State Crime Lab for an autopsy and the matter will be fully investigated."
Just a little over a month ago, McCready's boyfriend, David Wilson, died at the age of 34 at the same location with no cause of death or details surrounding his passing being revealed, however continues to be under investigation.
Wilson's death took its toll on McCready. "I have never gone through anything this painful," the singer told NBC's Andrea Canning in her last interview before she died. Mindy is survived by two children: Zander, 6, and Zayne, 9-months-old.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Mindy‘s children, friends, and family.
