Mindy McCready wasn’t having a particularly great month; first her boyfriend passes away then her children are taken away followed by a judge forcing her into rehab. The Cleburne County Sheriff’s Office have reported that the country singer committed suicide and died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Family members recently reported that ever since the death of David Wilson, the father of her youngest child, she had been on a downward spiral. Wilson, also appeared to have died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound in early January.
McCready had been making headlines since Wilson’s death; she had been accused of somehow playing a part in the record producer’s death. After pleaded that she had no connection to his suicide, her two children were taken away from her by authorities. She was then ordered by a judge to enter a treatment facility for mental-health and alcohol-abuse evaluation, but a day later was let out and allowed to undergo outpatient treatments instead. Now a little over two weeks later, this tragedy has unfolded.
In an interview in late January, she was quoted as saying that she had never been through what she had during Wilson’s death and that he was her “soul mate.”
