Mindy McCready’s Last Tweet

Mindy McCready Twitter

“Things have been hectic. But I’m still here…,” that was the last tweet that country star Mindy McCready posted on her Twitter account back in January. Sadly, “I’m still here,” is no longer true. At the age of 37, Mindy McCready has taken her own life.

Mindy’s brother confirmed to The New York Daily News that Mindy took her own life at her home in Heber Springs, Arkansas and has left behind two young children, Zander, 6, and Zayne, 9-months-old.

McCready’s longtime boyfriend David Wilson, the father of her younger son, died last month also of an apparent suicide. Authorities found his body on the same porch where they discovered Mindy’s yesterday. Mindy’s cause of death was also an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

David’s death hit Mindy hard. In an interview with the Today show, she called him her soul mate and said she said she’d never gone through anything as painful as his passing.

Mindy entered court-ordered rehab earlier this month after her father told a judge she was no longer taking care of herself or her children and was abusing drugs and alcohol. Her sons were put in foster care at the time. It’s not clear where Zander and Zayne were at the time of Mindy’s suicide.
