Family of Mindy McCready have confirmed that the 37 year old country singer has committed suicide by an apparent self inflicted gunshot wound. This is the final chapter in a very tragic string of events. Mindy leaves behind two young boys who were put in foster care when she was ordered to a treatment facility. Mindy had since been released from the facility and started outpatient care.
This comes just three weeks after her partner was found dead from a gun shot wound.
**Updated: (Via The Daily News) Sheriff’s deputies arrived at McCready’s home Sunday about 3:30 p.m. after reports of gun shots. The deputies found “Ms. McCready deceased, from what appears to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head,” Moss told the Daily News.
He said his and Mindy’s father, Tim, had just left Heber Springs this weekend. Mindy had been living in the rural Arkansas town for the last year. TMZ also reported Sunday night that McCready had shot her dog dead.
