Since country singer Mindy McCready took her own life on Sunday, February 17, 2013, there's been quite a bit of speculation about the so-called 'Celebity Rehab' curse. Now, Dr. Drew Pinsky (who headed up the reality television show for its three-season run) has spoken out about her suicide, saying he wished she had completed a longer stay in treatment just prior to her death.
During one of Mindy McCready's final conversations, the singer describes finding her dying boyfriend, David Wilson, and the miserable and frantic two hours that followed. The phone call was reportedly taped one day before she died and made available on Monday night.
Billy McKnight -- Mindy McCready's ex-boyfriend and the father to her oldest son, Zander -- says he's not surprised that the singer took her own life on Sunday afternoon. Right now he is worried for his son, as well as McCready's son with David Wilson, 10-month-old Zayne.
One day before Mindy McCready was found dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, the singer sent a private investigator she had been working with a cryptic message. It was a single frame from a video they had been working on together of McCready singing a song called 'I'll See You Yesterday.'
In another sad development in the life of Mindy McCready, the troubled country singer has reportedly been committed to a treatment facility, and her children have been placed in protective care by authorities in the state of Arkansas.
