Rest in Peace: Mindy McCready

Mindy McCready

Word broke tonight that troubled country singer Mindy McCready was found dead in her Arkansas home from an apparent suicide. According to TMZ, the 37-year-old reportedly first shot her dog and then herself, this was her third attempt at killing herself, and unfortunately this time it worked. Mindy has been in and out of the news for years because of all of her many troubles which were made quite public, including bouts with drug and alcohol addiction, depression and abuse. She leaves behind two boys (both recently removed from her care), one is only ten-months old, sadly his father David Wilson killed himself last month, this probably triggered the string of events that led to yet another tragedy. I pray that Mindy is finally at peace now, my thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends.
