There was little doubt as to the nature of Mindy McCready’s tragic death, given the star’s history of suicide attempts and the recent suicide of boyfriend David Wilson. Still, an official confirmation was needed. And now, we have confirmation that the Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew alum did indeed kill herself.
In the midst of the ongoing investigation surrounding David Wilson’s death, there is now yet another investigation, this time centered on the death of David’s girlfriend Mindy McCready. The country singer allegedly shot herself on Sunday, and now, the allegations are being confirmed by an official autopsy. Based on initial reports from the Arkansas state crime lab, Mindy died from a single gunshot to the head — and that gunshot was self-inflicted.
The autopsy may be in, but that does not mean that the investigation surrounding this tragedy is even close to finished. Cleburne County Sheriff Marty Moss told E! that, despite the arrival of autopsy results, this case remains an “ongoing investigation.” The sheriff added that Mindy had not left a suicide note (or, at least, not one that has been located at this point).
As authorities seek closure for the new Mindy McCready case, an investigation remains under way for David Wilson’s death last month. In an interview shortly after her boyfriend’s death, Mindy vehemently denied killing David, although she acknowledged the possibility that somebody else may have murdered him. However, given the circumstances of Mindy’s death, it seems likely that the country star believed that her boyfriend had committed suicide.
We’re sure that more details on this case will be released in the near future. Stay tuned for more updates on the Mindy McCready tragedy.
