Investigators have said McCready apparently shot and killed her late boyfriend's dog before she turned the gun on herself Sunday at her home in Heber Springs, Ark. Authorities found McCready's body and the dog on the front porch where her longtime musician boyfriend David Wilson died last month of a gunshot wound to the head.

Authorities are investigating Wilson's death was a suicide and haven't determined an official cause of death yet.

While I am sorry she is gone in such a manner, at least she had the last bit of mental stability to not take her childrens lives along with her own, as so many have done recently.

I agree let her rest in peace.  This woman had a disease that no one can understand.  To do something like she did she had to be in such a dark place I'm sure no one would ever want to be in.  I do feel very badly for her children and also the dog.  I know suicide is not the answer, but when you are in such despair the only thing that matters is that the pain go away.  Rehab can't fix everyone.

Let her RIP, she has her issues and now she can rest, sad for her son's as they both will only have vague memories.

Please please PLEASE let this woman rest in peace.  She was ill beyond the grasp of most.  She suffers no more, though the suffering of her children will never end.  360 degrees of tragedy
