News has broken of Mindy McCready’s suicide, just weeks after the mysterious death of her boyfriend, David Wilson. McCready died in an apparent suicide, from a gunshot wound to the head, after killing her dog, New York Daily News has reported. She died at her home in Heber Springs, Arkansas.
Last week, it was reported that the troubled country singer had entered an inpatient facility, in the wake of Wilson’s death. Although she was not an official suspect in her boyfriend’s death, Mindy claimed not to know how he had died at their home. She denied having any involvement in his death. Now, it appears that McCready has taken her own life, as well as that of her pet dog. The Sheriff’s deputies reportedly arrived at McCready’s home at around 3:30pm, after receiving reports of gun shots. They found the singer “deceased from what appears to be a gunshot wound to the head.” Her family members have been notified and her brother Josh confirmed the news to the New York-based publication.
Mindy is survived by her two sons, 10 month old Zayne (who was fathered by Wilson) and 6 year old Zander. Mindy had Zander with former partner Patrick ‘Billy’ McKnight, who was previously charged with attempted murder, after beating and choking her, in 2005.
