McCready appears to have taken own life

Posted: Updated:

News of Mindy McCready's death has been all over the national news this morning.  The AP reports that the former country star appears to have taken her own life Sunday afternoon in Heber Springs, Ark.

An autopsy will be done, but authorities say the 37-year-old mother of two died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot to the head. This could be the fourth suicide attempt since 2005 for McCready.

Her death comes a month after that of her boyfriend, David Wilson, who died about a month ago.  Wilson is the father of her youngest son. According to the AP, he is believed to have shot himself on the same porch of the home they shared about 65 miles north of Little Rock, Ark., and his death also was investigated as a suicide.
