Rip. I hate reading stories about anyone taking their own life. I always feel like we, including myself, failed as a society that someone chose death over being here with the rest of us.

I can truly appreciate your sentiment, but she failed herself:

"McCready had attempted suicide at least three times. She was hospitalized in July and September 2006 following drug overdoses and then again in December 2008 after she cut her wrists."

I hear you. Just depressing. Ultimately it was her choice and she made it. Just sucks to think people get to a place in their own lives that they just don't want it anymore. I just hope those souls found the peace and happiness they were looking for. We all deserve that.

Very sad but...

She killed the family dog before shooting herself dead on her porch which was in the exact spot where her boyfriend died from a gunshot wound just a month ago. Police have ruled the case regarding her boyfriend suspicious and McCready allegedly was being considered a potential suspect. Her kids were also recently taken away from her...

McCready was released from rehab last week after spending just two days at in-patient facility
Doctor found her clean of drugs and alcohol and 'mentally stable'.

she was a waste of perfectly good oxygen. Good riddance. Her kids and the world are better off without her. At least she leaves behind the legacy of a halfway decent sex tape.

Why should anyone feel like a failure because and adult made a decision to end their life? You are not the failure Mindy was the failure.

I agree! God gave her a gift that lead to opportunity. Just like Whitney. Don't feel sorry for either one.

She was a country music singer. Had a couple of hit songs in the mid 90's.
