Troubled country singer Mindy McCready shot herself in the face yesterday. Happy President’s Day? Radar Online reports:
The Cleburne County Sheriff’s Office released the following statement: “At 3:31 PM, Sunday, February 17th Deputies from the Cleburne County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to a report of gun shots fired in the area of 1132 Fox Chase Drive in Heber Springs. Officers arrived on the scene at 3:58 PM and discovered the body of 37 year old Melinda Gayle McCready on the front porch of the residence at 1132 Fox Chase. Ms. McCready was pronounced dead at the scene from what appears to be a single self-inflicted gunshot wound. At this time family members have been notified of the incident. Ms. Mcready will be transported to the Arkansas State Crime Lab for an autopsy and the matter will be fully investigated.”
So here’s what we know so far: 1.) Mindy McCready has been crazy for a long time. 2.) Her kids were removed from her home by the courts and she was ordered into treatment for alcohol and crazy. 3.) Her boyfriend, David Wilson, died from a gunshot wound on January 24. It was initially ruled a suicide…..but then the police said it wasn’t. And an investigation is ongoing. 4.) Mindy McCready blew her head off.
I’m no math expert, but 1+3=4, right?
Note: I found a picture of Mindy from 1997, because trust me, nobody wants to see 2013 Mindy this early in the morning.
