TROUBLED COUNTRY STAR MINDY MCCREADY SUICIDE


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.

Official Release

"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.

I gasped at this news. She had been through so much already and clearly needed more help than she got. It sounds like she just totally lost any semblance of who or what she was anymore. I am so sorry for her family, friends, and loved ones who had no conceivable way of helping her, barring rehab. Some people just get lost and never come back. I think with all my heart that she was a victim of this very thing. May she be at peace, and safe journey home sweet girl. My heart also goes out to her little ones. I hope that they will grow up knowing all the good things about her and that bad, sad, or horrible things be left behind. Blessed be.....
