Country singer Mindy McCready had just recorded an emotional new song to help those contemplating suicide days before she allegedly took her own life on Sunday.
Bing: More on Mindy McCready
The former "Celebrity Rehab" patient had recently channeled her feelings of pain into a new track, titled "I'll See You Yesterday" written by Courtney Dashe, and she told her longtime friend and Los Angeles-based private investigator Dan Hanks about the tune during a phone call on Saturday afternoon.
McCready, who had struggled with substance abuse, legal woes and suicidal tendencies for years, reportedly told Hanks, "It's such a beautiful song, it must be heard."
Hanks always taped the pair's conversations with McCready's consent, and it is only now, after listening back to her chilling final call, that he can identify the tell-tale signs of her mental instability. During an interview with the Today show on Monday, he said, "I would have never (sic) guessed she would have gone ahead and did what she did (take her own life). (But) now it's real (sic) clear that that (planning her suicide) is what she was doing, as if she was preparing her last statement in this video (sic)."
Police in Arkansas have launched an investigation into her final hours, although they believe the 37-year-old died from a single, self-inflicted gunshot wound. McCready had been struggling to come to terms with the sudden death of her producer boyfriend David Wilson, who was found dead from an apparent suicide at the same property in January. He was the father of her second son, Zayne, who was born last year.
God bless you Mindy and may you rest in peace. God bless your children too who will never know their mother.
