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:

McCready-retweet
And tweeted about the death of fellow “Celebrity Rehab” cast member Mikey Starr.

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.

    Deep appreciation for Dr. Drew and his extended hands to help. Very sorrowful for the loss of this great talent, and young mother.

  • V the K

    Sad. If only she had sought refuge in Jesus Christ instead of drugs.

    • $36544368

      Absolutely agree…but sometimes it’s not quite that easy for some people who know the Lord. It’s a hard world, and The Enemy is alive and well on Earth.

    • http://twitter.com/__abstraction__ An Abstraction

      Yeah……. if only she turned into a Born Again Bible Thumper everything would have been A-OK. Delusional.

      • Garth Haycock

        Why are you so filled with hatred?

        • V the K

          Because Christianity works and socialism fails.

          • http://twitter.com/__abstraction__ An Abstraction

            Yep…. Christianity works so well that everytime I tune into the Jesus Channels (you know…. the TBN network and everything else that poor people get to watch even if they don’t have cable) they are literally BEGGING for money (oops…. I meant “prayer gifts”). In the marketplace of ideas, Christianity is an epic FAIL.

          • Finrod Felagund

            Sounds like you have personal experience with living an epic FAIL.

          • ujujuj

            Unlike you, who have been collecting SS disability checks for the past 35 years, ministries don’t have their existence subsidized by the state.

          • http://twitter.com/InformedNow InformNow

            You said it yourself, “they are literally BEGGING for money”, versus Socialists government dictating the money YOU WILL PAY! As ‘An Abstraction’ you’re an epic FAIL.

      • Ladybug923

        How would she have been better if she were a Brain Dead Atheist Thumper like you? You are full of evil poison. Go away and find somewhere else to play.

  • Aaron Matthew Arnwine

    I believe she was engaged to Dean Cain as well. He’s lost two people from his life in as many months…

    • http://twitter.com/__abstraction__ An Abstraction

      It’s a message from GAAAAWD :o)

      • ceyanne

        Wow, somebody woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning. What exactly is your problem? Someone kick you like the dog you apparently are and you feel the need to snap at everything that moves now?

        • Finrod Felagund

          Some people are just full of bile and hate.

          • http://twitter.com/__abstraction__ An Abstraction

            Well bless your little hearts!

  • CatHerder

    Another life ended by drugs and despair. It’s not just an inner-city problem, it’s everywhere.

  • FreedomFighter

    Sick libs are already using this tragedy to advance their gun control agenda. Absolutely sickening.

    • http://twitter.com/__abstraction__ An Abstraction

      Call 1-888-BUTT-HURT

      • Shawn

        Why don’t you call 1-800-ass-hole

      • Guest

        Why do people think that phrase is funny? It’s stupid and obviously those who write it know what it means first hand.

    • Ladybug923

      Why was her so-called father who had her kids taken and put into foster care AND living with her not responsible enough to not have any guns in the house. Or if he did have trigger locks on them and keys with him? He holds responsibility in her death too if you ask me.

      • Rodney Brungardt

        If the guns weren’t available, she would have found other ways to die. Not anyones fault but her own.

  • DreadPirateStarbucks

    Heartbreaking! She was so troubled for a long time. Sad that she just couldn’t turn the corner. :(

    • http://twitter.com/__abstraction__ An Abstraction

      You didn’t know her or her situation, regardless of how much reality TV you watch. Saying dumb, trite stuff like “so sad she couldn’t turn the corner :((((((((((” shows just how much you DON’T know. What’s heartbreaking is that the news media is even wasting time on this Late Breaking Scoop.

      • DreadPirateStarbucks

        I don’t watch reality TV. I just pity people who are overtaken by their sins and, eventually, the sin of despair. Just having a little mercy for another human over here, you can avert your eyes if you wish.

        • http://twitter.com/__abstraction__ An Abstraction

          Welcome to Internets – please leave your emotions and mercy at the front door because nobody cares.

          • DreadPirateStarbucks

            Guess you must be a nobody because here you are.

          • ceyanne

            Yet here you are….

      • ZoriahShepard

        What is your damage? Don’t you have any experience pretending to be a human being and faking compassion? No….obviously not. You’re just an insensitive clod who enjoys using any tragic moment to bad mouth anyone whose opinion you don’t like. I know you wouldn’t say any of the garbage you’ve been posting to the faces of McCready’s family.

        • http://twitter.com/__abstraction__ An Abstraction

          LOL you know you TALK to people’s faces, not POST to them, right? Are you confusing real life and the Internets again? Time for a break, ya think?

  • Brainy

    “Haunting last tweets” were over a year ago.

    • Stone Bryson

      And your point is?

      • Brainy

        The article leads you to believe she *just* tweeted “I’m still here” when, in fact, it was over a year ago. One’s last statements or last words or last “tweets”, as it were, are usually assumed to be immediately preceding death.

        • Stone Bryson

          Thanks. Just curious where you were coming from…

          • http://twitter.com/__abstraction__ An Abstraction

            And your point is?

        • http://twitter.com/__abstraction__ An Abstraction

          Sad that you have to explain this like you’re talking to a kindergardener. Must be the normal intelligence level that the “staff” here caters to. Talk about “low information” people…..

      • http://twitter.com/__abstraction__ An Abstraction

        Your point is what is the point. And your point is?

  • GaryTheBrave

    Not being a country music fan I will say the same things some here say about rappers: Who is she?

    Yes, it’s sad when anyone commits suicide. I have never heard of her. There are many country stars I recognize but her and her music I don’t know.

    • http://twitter.com/Obain58 Terry J. Henry

      Who cares about Rappers?

  • http://twitter.com/JLG1956 Jerome Goolsby

    Listen to the song “Whiskey Lullaby” there are so many similarities to this tragedy it’s almost frightening.

    • TheOriginalDonald

      I was thinking the EXACT same thing.

  • Ladybug923

    So very sad………….and now we hear that the gun control hacks have already jumped on the boat of her tragic life and death……….using her to gain ground for their sickening cause. I think her miserable parents are the real reason she is dead. Her “mother” took her son from her and she had finally gotten him back when her boyfriend and father of her baby committed suicide a month ago. Her “father” who was living with her went to court 11 days before her suicide and had her children taken and put into foster care. Sounds like great parents right? One person can only take so much so before you judge her for anything. ask yourself this-Have you walked in her shoes, lived her life or even lived your own life sinless and guiltless? Have you really?

  • ember

    I saw her interview after her bf died. I was so hoping that the rehab/hospital stay would keep her safe. She clearly needed watching.

  • Ladybug923

    Why was her so-called father who had her kids taken and put into foster care AND living with her not responsible enough to not have any guns in the house. Or if he did have trigger locks on them and keys with him? He holds responsibility in her death too if you ask me. Mentally ill people are not supposed to have any guns in their posession or home in most states. He didn’t care enough for them to not leave her alone. He didn’t give a damn about his grandchildren or he wouldn’t have had them be taken into foster care with complete strangers.

  • Rodney Brungardt

    Another sad loss of a talented person. This happens over and over yet these young people still give their lives to drugs and alcohol. Such a waste.

  • Guest

    Sad that two kids lost their mother, especially in such unpleasant circumstances.

    There really is not much hope of stopping someone, so determined on self-destruction.
