Country singer Mindy McCready was found dead at her Heber Springs, Arkansas home Sunday afternoon, along with her dog. Apparently McCready shot the dog, and then herself. Her death comes a little over a month after the presumed suicide of her boyfriend, songwriter David Wilson, age 34.
McCready leaves behind two children, 6-year-old Zander (her son with ex-husband Billy McKnight) and 9-month-old Zayne. The children were not in the home at the time, having been removed by state family services after Mindy’s father, Tim McCready, had petitioned for Mindy to be involuntarily committed to a hospital for extreme depression and alcohol/drug abuse following Wilson’s death. McCready had completed the court-ordered in-patient rehabilitation and had returned home.
