Mindy McCready’s Boyfriend’s Death Ruled a Suicide
Mindy McCready is mourning the loss of David Wilson, her boyfriend and the father of her 9-month-old son Zayne. McCready released a statement to the media yesterday, but at the time Wilson’s cause of death was unknown. It has now been confirmed that 34-year-old Wilson took his own life.
“It was a self-inflicted gunshot wound,” McCready’s publicist Kat Atwood tells People.com. “Now they’re working on funeral arrangements and figuring out where to go from here.”
Although the “Ten Thousand Angels” singer was alone with her two children for the first 24 hours after Wilson’s death, she is now surrounded by her loved ones.
“Her family drove up from Florida,” says Atwood. “I’m not exactly sure when they got there, but her personal friends arrived late last night.”
“David was my soulmate; he was a caregiver and guiding hand to our sons, Zander and Zayne,” McCready said in a statement released on Monday. “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.”
Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.
