Country singer Mindy McCready allegedly committed suicide yesterday. The Arkansas’ Cleburne County Sheriff’s released this official statement:
“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,” the statement began. 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.”
UGH. This news is terrible. She leaves behind two boys–the younger of the two was the son of her boyfriend that shot himself last month.
As we all know she had struggled with addiction and mental illness…I’m sad that it had to come to this. Some reports are saying that she shot herself and her dog. Our TVgasm facebook wrote, “McCready is the 5th former cast member from “CELEBRITY REHAB WITH DR. DREW” Other cast-mates now deceased are Joey Kovar (29 -mix of drugs & alcohol), Rodney King (47 -drowned in his pool), Jeff Conaway (60 -pneumonia) and Mike Starr (44 -drug overdose).”
So sad. R.I.P. Mindy
