    Country Singer Mindy McCreedy Found Dead in Home

    She took her own life.

    CNN ~ Embattled country star Mindy McCready dead at 37

    She leaves behind two little boys, one only ten months old, whose father also committed suicide last month.

    Considering we in Canada just marked Bell Let's Talk Day to not only promote Mental Illness, but also to attempt and do away w/the stigma of having any kind of Mental Illness, to read in the article Mindy was terrified of what would happen to her career if she came forward w/her battles w/Depression...

    Just so beyond sad on so very many levels. My condolences to her Family and friends and my heart just aches for her sons.

    That is sad but I can't say no one saw it coming. I wish she could have gotten the help she so clearly needed. Sometimes it just isn't enough, so perhaps she and others tried to get her help.

    Hope she finds peace. However, why did she need to take the dog with her?

    So sad. I have her first two albums and they are great. Hope we can remember her by her music and not her sad end.

    The article did not mention anything about a dog.

    Other news reports have. She apparently shot her dog and then herself.

    Also, she did put herself into rehab recently and just got out.

    So as usual Dr Drew has his head up his ass.

    Hadn't she tried to commit suicide several times previously?

    Thank GOD the authorities had removed the children from the house.

    That was my first thought, Louis. Thank goodness the children were not in her custody because she very well may have killed them as well. I know that is a big assumption but if she killed her dog then she very well could have killed anyone and anything else living in the house. She obviously was not mentally well.

    Since she had been on Dr. Drew's Celebrity Rehab show, and had a lot of other well-publicized problems and run-ins with the law, it wasn't much of a secret that she was struggling with depression (and a lot of other things too). I'm kind of puzzled by this statement, because going on a celebrity rehab TV show isn't exactly concealing your problems from the world.

    Is this the singer that Roger Clemens had an affair with when she was 15?

    It's unusual for a woman to use firearms to kill herself. More commonly pills are used. Men use firearms more often.

    Yes, that was my thought as soon as I heard about the dog.

    I was going by what was said in the article. Someone, I'm thinking Dr. Drew ( ) is quoted as saying this.

    ITA.

    If I'm reading things correctly, her boyfriend was apparently found dead, due to a gunshot wound, at the same house (which they shared) a few weeks ago. It was initially ruled a suicide but authorities weren't ruling anything out, and she denied killing him.

    At least the kids are apparently safe.

    According to news articles, she had already attempted suicide via pills once or twice.

    Mindy's situation reminds me of Amy Winehouse. Sadly, it was always a question of when and not if. I hope she has found peace and wish the best for her children.

    What a sad, sad story.

    But at least those two little boys are safe and I hope that they are able to receive the love and care they so richly deserve from other family members.

    I wonder if she had undiagnosed issues even before her professional success?
    She seemed unprepared to cope with anything that happened in her life.

    Whatever the circumstances, it's a tragedy.
