That was country music star Mindy McCready’s last tweet: ‘I’m still here.”
Ms. McCready was found dead in her home last night; an apparent suicide.
More from Fox News:
Waren Olmstead, the coroner in Cleburne County, Ark., said in a statement McCready died Sunday apparently of a single, self-inflicted gunshot wound. An autopsy is pending.
Just last month David Wilson, McCready’s boyfriend and the father of her 9-month-old son Zayne, was found dead on the same porch where McCready’s body was found. His death also was investigated as a suicide.
McCready entered court-ordered rehab earlier this month after her father told a judge she was no longer taking care of herself or her children and was abusing drugs and alcohol. Her sons were put in foster care at the time, but it’s not clear where Zander and Zayne were at the time of McCready’s suicide.
Ms. McCready tweeted this post about the custody battle involving her son Zander.
Heartbreaking. Prior to her death, Mindy McCready tweeted more haunting statements.
She retweeted this:
Twitter is mourning the loss.
And celebrities took to Twitter to mourn as well.
Rest in peace, Mindy McCready. Our thoughts and prayers are with her grieving children, and with all of her loved ones.
