Country singer Mindy McCready
dead of apparent suicide

USA TODAY, by Brian Mansfield and Bill Welch

Original Article

Posted By:bamapreacher, 2/17/2013 10:38:23 PM

Mindy McCready, a country singer better known recently for her ongoing personal troubles than for her string of late-´90s hits, died Sunday of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound in her Arkansas home, the Cleburne County sheriff said. Sheriff Marty Moss said his office received a call to the McCready home around 3:30 p.m. local time in Heber Springs, Ark., west of Memphis and north of Little Rock. "Ms. McCready is deceased from what appears to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound,´´ Moss told USA TODAY. He said officers found McCready at the scene.

Comments:
Sad that more and more singers and actresses seem to be letting their fame get ahead of them to the point where they can´t handle it anymore without drugs and alcohol.

Poor baby Zayne, neither of his parents placed him above their desire to die.

God love her...she´d been a train wreck for YEARS. From having a teenage affair with Roger Clemens to drugs and alcohol to violent relationships...geez Louise. and of course, the latest was the death of her fiance´, who she wsaid was a suicide, but the police aren´t convinced and she hasn´t been ruled out as a suspect. As ever, it´s the children who suffer.

Never heard of her. I stopped listening to country music after the 80´s. Everything sounds the same as other genres now. Sorry to hear this though...

Isn´t it unusual for a woman to shoot to kill herself?

#7, that´s true. But she tried at least three other times to kill herself with pills. She must have meant it this time. It is my understanding that the children had been taken away from me. She killed her dog too. Glad the kids weren´t there because she might have shot them in her state of mind.

It wasn´t just a teenage love affair with that reprobate Clemens - she was 15. Yes, she was a train wreck but she had a lot of help. I´m guessing that she may have had an abortion also. There is growing evidence that abortion leads to drug and alcohol abuse as well as thoughts of suicide. Very sad life for one so young. Her children will be taken care of - it is too bad that she couldn´t get through rehab and get her life back together for their sakes.

Unfortunately, because she killed herself, her eternal agonies are just beginning. I pray God have mercy on her soul. It´s too bad, and so sad, that she couldn´t have found peace and forgiveness from her Heavenly Father in this life (it was there, all along) in order to be eternally peaceful and happy in the next.

Jesse Jackson has decided to weigh in on the inflammatory comments that Phil Robertson made to GQ about gays and African Americans. In an interview with Drew Magary, the "Duck Dynasty" star said the Nazis needed Jesus, that he never saw the mistreatment of African Americans while growing up in Louisiana before the civil rights era and that homosexuality was a sin. A&E has already suspended Robertson, but Reverend Jackson, his Rainbow PUSH Coalition and GLAAD are demanding to meet with network execs, along with Cracker Barrel´s CEO, to discuss the future of all "Duck Dynasty" memorabilia or content.

President Obama acknowledged on Thursday that he lived with his Kenyan uncle for a brief period in the 1980s while preparing to attend Harvard Law School, contradicting a statement more than a year ago that the White House had no record of the two ever meeting. Their relationship came into question on Tuesday at the deportation hearing of his uncle, Onyango Obama, in Boston immigration court. His uncle had lived in the United States illegally since the 1970s and revealed in testimony for the first time that his famous nephew had stayed at his Cambridge apartment for about three weeks. At

A series of gun attacks overnight in Chicago left four men dead, following a shooting at a South Side park that wounded 13 people this week, police said on Saturday. The latest violence came as the city struggled to respond to a rash of street violence. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel returned home from Washington, after cancelling meetings there, and spoke at a prayer vigil on Friday night where he urged witnesses to Thursday´s park shooting to come forward.

Key West, Fla. - Looking dazed and sunburned, U.S. endurance swimmer Diana Nyad walked ashore Monday, becoming the first person to swim from Cuba to Florida without the help of a shark cage. The 64-year-old Nyad swam up to the beach just before 2 p.m. EDT, about 53 hours after starting her journey from Havana on Saturday. As she approached, spectators waded into waist-high water and surrounded her, taking pictures and cheering her on. "I have three messages. One is, we should never, ever give up. Two is, you're never too old to chase your dream. Three is, it looks like a solitary sport,

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan
