    Reports: Mindy McCready dead of apparent suicide | MyFOX8.com

    Country music singer Mindy McCready has committed suicide, according to FOX 17 and multiple other reports.
    Stacy McCloud, a reporter at FOX 17 in Nashville, tweeted:

    “A close family friend of Mindy McCready has informed me that the country singer has committed suicide.”
    A short time later she tweeted:

    “The Mindy McCready suicide I told you about has now been confirmed from 4 different sources. A statement from the family is in the works.”
    McCloud said she spoke to McCready’s family who confirmed the news.

    Andrea Canning, a correspondent for NBC News, is also reporting McCready committed suicide on Sunday. Canning said a family friend told her that McCready “shot and killed herself this evening.”

    E! News also spoke with a family friend who confirmed the singer’s death.

    Jeez, what a terrible situation for her children. I read hints that she may have been involved with the fiance's death, too. I guess we'll see how that pans out, but I doubt she was long for this world, regardless. She's been a mess for ages it seems.

    Oh wow, I knew she was a mess, but I'm shocked. I hope she finds more peace in the next life than this one.

    My heart jumped when I read this. Totally not surprised and kind of thought this might happen. But still hoped she could get through this. Poor messed up lady. I wonder if her mom will get her children.

    I think I remember that she made a credible attempt on her life with an OD when she was pregnant with her first child. I hate that she couldn't come out the other side and that it ended this way for her.

    It's been a difficult month for Mindy McCready, and unfortunately, E! News has learned that the country singer's life has come to end far too soon.
    A source close to the 37-year-old tells us her body was found in Heber Springs, Ark.
    A source tells E! News that Mindy's father, Tim McCready had been staying with her until this morning when he returned to Florida. When her father left, "she was in good spirits and seemed to be fine," our source tells us.
    Neighbors heard gunshots at her house and called the police. "She shot herself and the dog," our source says.
    "Things have been hectic. But I'm still here..," the star tweeted in January.
    Just a little over a month ago, McCready's boyfriend, David Wilson, died at the age of 34 with no cause of death or details surrounding his passing being revealed, however continues to be under investigation.
    Mindy McCready released into outpatient treatment
    Shortly afterward, the star's life began going on a downward spiral.
    After denying any involvement with Wilson's death, McCready's two children, Zander, 6, andZayne, 9-months-old, were taken from the singer's Heber Springs, Ark., home by authorities. "Mindy needs to get help and we all care and love her and we want her to get the right help so she can move on. She is in a bad state right now, depressed and unhappy. It is not good," a source told E! News when the children were removed.
    That was the point when McCready decided to enter an in-patient facility for treatment. "Since boyfriend (David Wilson) shot himself she has been in bed for 3 wks," her father said in court documents. "Sleeps all day. Drinks all night and is taking Rx drugs. Not bathing or even helping take care of her 2 children."
    Exclusive! McCready's boyfriend was arrested shortly before his death
    In agreeing to McCready's "involuntary admission" to an appropriate facility, the judge wrote that "there is cause to find there is clear and convincing evidence that Respondent is in imminent danger of harm to herself or others, suicidal or gravely disabled."
    However, just a day after being ordered by a judge to enter a treatment facility for a mental-health and alcohol-abuse evaluation, the troubled celeb was released to undergo outpatient treatment instead.
    "Being involuntarily committed and having her children taken away from her was eye-opening. It helped her realize she needs to focus on putting her family back together and moving forward from this tragedy," a source told E! News. "She is in a better state of mind."
    Mindy McCready's two children taken from her by authorities
    McCready set off family-service alarm bells in November 2011 after violating a court order when she didn't bring her then 5-year-old son, Zander, back home to Florida after a visit. (The singer was allowed to visit her son, whose father is McCready's ex Billy McKnight, but her mother had custody of the child.)
    She claimed she was simply protecting her child. Zander was subsequently placed in foster care in the state while the custody dispute was dealt with.
    In her last interview before she died with NBC's Andrea Canning, the singer spoke about the effect Wilson's death had on her. "I have never gone through anything this painful," she said. "He didn't just touch my heart, he touched my soul. He was my soulmate.
