Mindy McCready Shot Dog Before Killing Herself, Says Sheriff

Truth rating: 10

By Daniel Gates


Mindy McCready appears to have shot and killed her late boyfriend’s dog before committing suicide on Sunday.

Marty Moss, the Cleburne County Sheriff, says the country singer apparently shot her beau David Wilson’s pet before turning the gun on herself.

Their bodies were reportedly discovered next to each other on the front porch of her home in Heber Springs, Arkansas.

Wilson’s own shooting death last month is being investigated.

During a “Today Show” appearance in January, McCready declared her innocence in that incident.

While McCready’s death has not been officially labeled a suicide, authorities say “all indicators” point to it.
