Country singer Mindy McCready was found dead in her Arkansas home this weekend from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot. She was only 37.
According to reports, McCready’s neighbors heard a gunshot and then called the police to the scene. Not only was McCready dead, but so was her dog. 2013 had already been a very troubling period for the already troubled singer. Her boyfriend, David Wilson, died barely a month ago with an investigation of his death still pending. McCready denied any wrongdoing in his death, but her two children, aged 6 and 9 months, were taken away from her by official. Shortly thereafter, she entered a voluntary in-patient treatment facility to get help for her admitted depression. An investigation into her death is currently ongoing and there is no word yet on who will get custody of her two young children.
Condolences to the McCready family.
