Mindy McCready Committed Suicide Sunday Afternoon

Country Star Mindy McCready age 37, was found dead in her Arkansas residence Sunday afternoon according to a local sheriff’s statement.

The Cleburne County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to a report of a gunshot fired Sunday afternoon, there they found McCready’s body on the front porch of her Arkansas home, the statement read. The singer had a history of struggling with addiction and mental illness, she even appeared on an episode of “Celebrity Rehab” a few years ago with Dr. Drew Pinsky, who stated that he had contact with McCready last month after her boyfriend’s untimely death.

“When I heard she was struggling, I did reach out to her and urged her to go to take care of herself, get in a facility if she felt she needed,” said Pinsky.
“Her biggest fear was the stigma of doing so and what people would think if she, God forbid, took care of herself. And this to me is the most distressing part of this story. She is a lovely woman, we have lost her, and it didn’t have to go down like this.”


McCready popped onto the country music scene in 1996 with her album “10,000 Angels,” and great hit’s like “Guys Do It All the Time.”
In recent years, McCready went through numerous custody battles for her elder son, Zander. She took the boy from her mother, who had custody, and fled with him to her home in Arkansas, saying she had concerns over his safety.
A judge ordered authorities to pick up Zander, who was 5 at the time, and days later authorities found McCready hiding with Zander in a closet in her home. More details of surrounding the country stars tragic death will hopefully come to light in the days to come.

This country singer will be truly missed.
