American country music singer Mindy McCready has apparently committed suicide on February 16, 2013 at her residence in Heber Springs, Arkansas. According to the authorities, the singer died of a suspected self-inflicted gunshot to the head.
An autopsy is being planned for the body of the singer. McCready was 37 years old and is survived by two sons. However, this is not the first time the singer has tried to take her life. The ‘You’ll Never Know’ singer had attempted to take her life in the year 2005 as well. Mindy has been trying to cope with a series of tumultuous public events that marked much of her adult life.
While talking to reporters in the year 2010, McCready talked about a series of issues that she was dealing with over the last half decade and seemed to be bothered by her personal life. Talking about her life the ‘Over and Over’ singer said, ‘‘It is a giant whirlwind of chaos all the time. I call my life a beautiful mess and organized chaos. It’s just always been like that. My entire life things have been attracted to me and vice versa, that turn into chaotic nightmares or I create the chaos myself. I think that’s really the life of a celebrity, of a big, huge, giant personality [sic].’’
Mindy’s suicide has come a month after the death of her long time boyfriend David Wilson.
