Authorities in Arkansas are saying that Mindy McCready’s death was a suicide, according to preliminary autopsy results.
The Cleburne County Sheriff said in a statement Wednesday that preliminary autopsy results from Arkansas’ state crime lab show McCready’s death was a suicide from a single gunshot wound to the head.
Investigators said that McCready apparently shot and killed her late boyfriend’s dog before she killed herself. This took place at her home in Arkansas on Sunday. Authorities found McCready’s body and the dog on the front porch where her longtime boyfriend, David Wilson, was found dead last month of a gunshot wound to the head.
Authorities are investigating Wilson’s death as a suicide, but haven’t determined an official cause of death yet.
