Mindy McCready Dead At 37
Very sad news from the music world.
Mindy McCready was found dead yesterday of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. At just 37, she leaves behind sons 6 year old Zander and 9 month old Zayne.
Mindy was no stranger to difficult times, to say the least. Struggling with drug and alcohol addiction, as well as mental illness, she attempted suicide twice in 2005, and once again in 2008. The downward spiral included a 2004 arrest for passing off a fraudulent OxyContin prescription, and continued with a 2005 murder attempt by her then boyfriend Billy McNight, the father of her son Zander. Just last month, her boyfriend David Wilson — and father of the infant — was found dead of an apparent suicide, but later Mindy was considered a suspect.
