Country Singer Mindy McCready Dead in Apparent Suicide
Country singer Mindy McCready was found dead Sunday "from what appears to be a single self-inflicted gunshot wound," police said.
Deputies investigating a report of gunshots found McCready's body on the front porch of a home in Heber Springs, Ark., according to the Cleburne County Sheriff's Office.
McCready, 37, had battled substance abuse.
"As sad as it is, it didn't come as a major shock, because she's just been battling demons for so long, Billy McKnight, McCready's ex-boyfriend and the father of her 6-year-old son, told TODAY on Monday. "I was around her when she attempted suicide twice, so I knew it was in her."
