Mindy McCready was found dead in Heber Springs, Arkansas. Several news outlets, including FOX and E! News, are reporting that Mindy committed suicide. The country singer's best friend confirmed to NBC reporter Andrea Canning that she shot and killed herself Sunday (Feb. 17).
The 37-year old troubled star had been struggling following the sudden death of her boyfriend in January. Earlier this month she spent some time in a mental hospital, but was released when doctors said they could find nothing wrong with her mental state. However, Mindy's father had reported to the court that his daughter " Sleeps all day. Drinks all night and is taking Rx drugs. Not bathing or even helping take care of her 2 children."
A trusted friend now says Mindy delivered a video to him the day before her death. The video of a song called "I'll See You Yesterday" may have foretold the plan Mindy had to end her life.
