Mindy McCready: The Real Reason She Committed Suicide — Report

Wed, February 20, 2013 10:57am EST by 4 Comments

Just a few days before Mindy’s death, she received court papers proposing her sons go live with her mother. Did her devastation contribute to her horrific suicide?

In an e-mail sent to her private investigator friend, obtained by People, country singer Mindy McCready had “lost all hope” after tragedy hit her. “The most important thing are my babies must come home,” Mindy, 37, wrote to close friend Danno Hanks.

The mother of two was found dead Feb. 17 after an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. The death took place in her home in Arkansas, the same place the body of her boyfriend David Wilson was found dead last month after he committed suicide.

On Feb. 6, Mindy’s two sons, Zander, 6, and Zayne, 9 months, were taken into foster care after she entered a treatment facility for a mental-health and alcohol-abuse evaluation. She was released after only two days. Mindy had been in and out of rehab for years, and had attempted to commit suicide twice before — once in 2005 and once in 2008.

“She has had substance problems for so long and tragedy followed her through the years,” close friends of Mindy told HollywoodLife.com.

Country singer Chely Wright also commented on the death stating, “I’m praying for her kids.”

Mindy McCready Lived In An Unhealthy Environment

When police found Mindy’s body, they reported she was in an unhealthy living situation; the house smelled terrible, with dog feces everywhere, left-out food and full prescription bottles in the bathroom and bedroom. Her father said in court documents that since her husband’s death, she was “taking Rx drugs” and “not bathing or even taking care of her two children.”

Found by her side was her dog, also killed with a gunshot wound. Friends believe that she most likely killed her dog so he would not be left alone.

HollywoodLifers, do YOU believe the threat of losing her children was part of the reason she committed suicide?

There is a strong possibility she killed her boyfriend. She was being investigated. His friends said he was ready to leave her and was not suicidal. Judging by her actions, it seems clear to me, she likely killed him and did not want to go to a trial and jail. Suicide is violence, same as killing another person, except, it is you. She was troubled and a mess. Killing the dog ? someone would have taken care of the dog…..Wilson had family and friends. It was more likely rage and control. The kids are better off without her.

The Judge really helped her didn’t he? They just don’t care what they put these mothers through. First thing they think of is take their kids away. How is that suppose to help them??? It is like putting an alcoholic in jail! No damned help at all. They should send somebody in to help the mother and the kids stay together.

All I am going to say on this, is this: HL< for once you said truth. I do believe the at her kids being taken away permanently, was part of the reason. The rest of it was due to the fact her hubby had committed suicide as well. That is a terrible thing to leave for the loved ones to find, much less, for someone mentally delicate ,like Mindy,to find. That is most likely the tipping straw,and the final one, was her babies being taken.
Considering the condition of the house, no wonder the kids were taken.
Considering her mental status, she should have been forced to go into a treatment/hospital facility,for her own good.
She should have had a Brittney pulled on her. If her friends have knowns for years this was going on,someone, ANYONE,should have said/done something sooner.
I pray for Mindy and her kids and her friends/fam, at this horrible time.
Oh and yes,i do believe she killed her dog so he would not be left alone and be put down in the aftermath. On that, while I do not fully agree, I do,as a pet owner, understand why she did it.
RIP, Mind: sing for the angels, as now you are one of them,and can join one of your heroes in heaven: Patsy Cline and finally meet Amy Winehouse, someone else you admired.
