Mindy McCready’s tragic suicide left many questions for fans of the troubled country singer, questions that her mother is ready to answer in her new tell-all book according to a report on Friday January, 30. from Radar Online. The new book about McCready’s life and death will detail the events going on in Mindy’s life in the Arkansas cabin where McCready ended her life nearly two years ago. Police detectives deemed McCready’s death as a suicide but, Mindy’s mother now hopes that she can shed some light into Mindy’s troubles in her new book, one which she has also discussed with tabloid magazines.
McCready’s mom, Gayle Inge stated to tabloid reporters, “I got into this place where it was hurting too much to talk about it. It’s written to expose what happened in Arkansas. I feel like laws need to be changed.”Mindy tragically ended her life on February 17, 2013, but her mother wants to delve into the real back story and how she made every attempt possible to prevent that tragic event from unfolding. Inge reveals that she wrote letters to the state in Florida asking them to not allow her daughter Mindy to be in a home that housed guns, revealing that Mindy was a felon with drug and alcohol problems.
Inge also claims that despite Florida and Arkansas knowing that Mindy was breaking laws, in the wake of two funerals the states “still had arrogance to act as if they had done nothing wrong.” Mindy McCready is best known for her 1996 smash hit album, “Ten Thousand Angels” that included hits, “Guys Do It All the Time,” and “A Girl’s Gotta Do (What a Girl’s Gotta Do).” Sadly the singer’s career came to a screeching halt in 2002 when her personal dramas began to overshadow her professional talents.
McCready received significant media coverage regarding her troubled personal life, suicide attempts and her eventual death by suicide. Mindy ended her life at age 37. The singer was found dead on that tragic February day of what investigators concluded was a self-inflicted gunshot wound on the front porch of her Heber Springs home. The death scene was also the same exact location where just the month before Mindy’s boyfriend and the father of her young son Zayne, David Wilson had also committed suicide by shooting himself.
Inge claims her book will surprise and shock by the contents which will detail Mindy’s tragic journey and shockingly reveal McCready’s last words. “She sent a text to her cousin and she said ‘I’m dead,’” Inge recounted. “She would have sent it to me, but my phone was turned off.” Mindy’s mother details how she has more than twenty hours of recorded audio conversations with her daughter up until the day David committed suicide. “Our last conversation, she said she was coming to Florida and she’s going to get her kids back,” Inge claimed. She also reveals that Mindy was completely out of control at this time. Describing her as ‘not in her right mind, depressed and drinking.’
Inge writes in her tell-all-book that “there was no stopping Mindy. I truly believe that.” She then goes n to share that Mindy believed the end of the world was coming in April and that her father Tim McCready had a bomb shelter with plenty of gasoline, artillery and survival supplies. Mindy and her mother had a well publicly documented tumultuous relationship that included many court and custody battles that Inge claims mad them appear to be bitter enemies, when in fact she claims they were much closer than people believed. Inge now feels that it is the right time to tell her story, Mindy’s real story even though it is painful for her and hurts her daily, she is doing out of love. Is out of love, or for the love of money? Some things are just better left unsaid, do you believe Mindy McCready’s mom’s story is one of those things?
