~~ 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 at 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.

In a statement, he said officers arrived on the scene at 3:58 p.m. and found McCready's body on the front porch. The case is under investigation; McCready will be transported to the Arkansas State Crime Lab for an autopsy. Moss said her family has been notified of her death.~~

So sad. To be in such a troubled mental state to take your own life. And with two very young children left behind it's an even a worse situation.

Prayers are needed for her loved ones. Tragic. Just tragic.

Listen to one of her tunes, "Ten Thousand Angels" here:

Police investigation wasn't over and she may have been guilty of the death of her male friend, same way, same place.
