Several news sources are now claiming that Mindy McCready is under investigation in the shooting death of her 34-year-old live in boyfriend, at the home they shared in Arkansas. The National Enquirer was first to report that the cause of death for David Wilson, who is the father of Mindy’s 9 month old son Zayne, has not been confirmed by authorities as a ‘self-inflicted gunshot wound.‘ They say that a spokesperson for Mindy made that determination, and that a lengthy investigation is underway. Read the local sheriff’s statement here…..
Cleburne County Sheriff Marty Moss tells the National Enquirer:
“This is a very high-profile case and we need to make sure it’s investigated as thoroughly as possible, It could take weeks for the state crime lab to complete tests on Mr. Wilson’s body, and if you’ll notice, it was Mindy McCready’s spokesperson — not anyone involved in the investigation — who made the determination that Mr. Wilson’s death was due to a self-inflicted gunshot wound.”
McCready has not been charged with any crime, and authorities have not named her as a suspect. Nonetheless, the UK’s Daily Mail Online reports that McCready is under investigation for what authorities believe may be her role in Wilson’s death. They are reporting that:
“David had been carrying on an affair for many weeks before the shooting,” an unidentified source claims. “When Mindy found out, it fueled a lot of very heated fights. The tension in their household became so unbearable that David packed up and left.”
Daily Mail Online also alleges that Wilson threatened to leave McCready on the day he died.
The Enquirer further claims that it was McCready who made the 911 call to report Wilson’s death, telling the operator that she did not hear the gunshot because she was in another room and had the television turned up loud. The story alleges that the operator who took the call could hear a man moaning in the background.
Such a sad continuation of the troubled life of Mindy McCready. No matter what, the real and sad truth is that her son is now without a father, and her older son Zander lost a precious father figure in his life too.
We will keep you posted of any further developments on this tragic story.
