Troubled country music star Mindy McCready was found dead today of an apparent suicide … this according to various reports. She was 37.
A source close to McCready tells TMZ … McCready shot herself and her dog. Neighbors reported hearing the two gunshots.
We’re told McCready had been a mess since the father of her youngest child, record producer David Wilson, was found dead in his home on January 13 of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.
McCready’s two children were removed from her home by a judge on February 6 and she was committed to a treatment facility for a mental-health and alcohol-abuse evaluation. She was released two days later.
McCready had attempted suicide twice before — once in 2005 and again in 2008. She also made several trips to rehab and appeared in 2010 on the VH1 reality show “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew.”
