Death Of David Wilson, Boyfriend Of Singer Mindy McCready, Ruled Suicide
Police officials have determined that record producer David Wilson, the boyfriend of country singer Mindy McCready, 31, took his own life at his Arkansas home on Sunday.
The Cleburne County Sheriff's Office said that the 34-year-old record producer died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to the New York Daily News.
Wilson was the father of McCready's second child, a 9-month-old named Zayne. McCready also has a 6-year-old named Zander who she was raising with Wilson from a relationship with singer Billy McKnight.
"Today, we mourn the loss of my life partner and my children's father, David Wilson," McCready said in a statement released today. "David was my soulmate; he was a caregiver and guiding hand to our sons, Zander and Zayne. He was a precious gift from God to all of us and, yesterday, he returned home and is now with his mother and father.
"David loved and he was loved. Those who knew and loved him will miss him; those who did not know David missed the opportunity to know a truly loving and gifted man."
McCready has long struggled with drug abuse and related arrests since launching onto the country music scene in 1996 with “Ten Thousand Angels." In 2010, she was taken to the hospital for a drug overdose, according to the Daily Mail, and was hospitalized in both 2005 and 2008 for her own attempts at suicide.
