Details areÂ emerging regarding the death of troubled country music singer, Mindy McCready. Just days before she took her own life from a self-inflicted gunshot wound McCready was served with court papers suggesting that her two sons, Zander, age six, and Zayne, 10 months, be placed in the custody of her mother.
This new information sheds light on the sad end of a life that was riddled with tragedy. Already dealing with her drug and alcohol problem plus the loss of boyfriend David Wilson, the threat of losing her boys may have been too much for her to take.
McCreadyÂ sent anÂ email toÂ her friend saying, “The most important thing are my babies must come home.”
The state of McCreadyâ€™s living conditions were far from pretty. According to aÂ police source, the Arkansas home where McCready was found was filthy, filled with spoiled food and dog feces with prescription bottles everywhere.Â This is the same home where WilsonÂ also committed suicide just weeksÂ before.Â The singer had fought substance abuse for years and had just recently been to a court appointed rehab program.
Her estrangedÂ mother, Gayle Inge,Â was at one time the legal guardianÂ of her son, Zander. McCready was charged with parental abduction in 2011 when sheÂ fled withÂ Zander after a visit. It seems the threat of losing her children yet again may have been the final straw for the fallen star.
