Mindy McCready Dead at Age 37

By February 18, 2013

Follow me on:

Country music singer, Mindy McCready has been found dead in what reports are saying appears to be a self-inflicted gun shot wound. McCready had been fighting for custody of her oldest son, Zander. McCready's mother was awarded custody of Zander in 2007, but McCready ran with Zander in November 2011.  The judge over the case awarded custody back to McCready's mother last February and ruled that he be returned to Florida.

McCready has been battling addiction, mental illness, and bad relationships for many years. It's sad that she has given up on herself. She leaves behind two sons, Zander, who will turn 7 on March 6; and Zayne who is ten months old. Zayne's father died of an apparent suicide last month.
