McCready committed suicide Sunday at her home in Heber Springs, Ark., days after leaving a court-ordered substance abuse treatment program. The 37-year-old mother of two died from a single gunshot to the head about a month after her longtime boyfriend David Wilson was believed to have killed himself in the same location.

Horrible thing she did. Seems like she was so depressed but she left her children without a mother. I pray her children grow up the best they possible can without her. Idk, maybe she felt her children were better off without her but her children needed her. They needed her to be well.

I was a fan and had the opportunity to work with her briefly in the late 90's at the peak of her career, so my intention is not to speak ill of her. However, retired first responder, she had been  pretty much off of everyone's radar  for many years when she came out with her story about Roger Clemens. And then there was Celebrity Rehab. She sought out interviews. She's the  one who cast suspicions upon herself in the death of her own boyfriend - no one was accusing her of anything, then she issued a press release saying she was not involved. Those aren't the kinds of things you do when you are trying to get the sensationalist media off your back.

It is so sad. such a beautiful and talented lady. 

I wish we could get over treating celebrities as ours to do what we want with.

If Mindy was left alone to get the help she needed and not hounded to death by sensationalist media. she would still be here with us. 

 Many many people survive depression and substance addiction, few survive being hounded and harassed.

we need better mental health care.
