Country Singer Mindy McCready Reportedly Commits Suicide

Facebook

It has been reported that Mindy McCready has committed suicide. Stacy McCloud, a reporter at FOX 17 in Nashville, tweeted:

“A close family friend of Mindy McCready has informed me that the country singer has committed suicide.”

“The Mindy McCready suicide I told you about has now been confirmed from 4 different sources. A statement from the family is in the works.”

McCready was known for her hits including “Ten Thousand Angels,” “Guys Do it All The Time,” and for her long-time personal struggles.

The Cleburne County Sheriff’s Department released this statement:

“At 3:31 PM, Sunday, February 17th Deputies from the Cleburne County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to a report of gun shots fired in the area of 1132 Fox Chase Drive in Heber Springs. Officers arrived on the scene at 3:58 PM and discovered the body of 37 year old Melinda Gayle McCready on the front porch of the residence at 1132 Fox Chase. 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.”

Last month McCready’s boyfriend David Wilson died, also of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. McCready went into treatment Feb. 6 for mental and alcohol-related problems and was released two days later.

She leaves behind two children.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the McCready family.
