Initial investigation reveals that the 37-year-old country star, who made chart topping hits before her career was upstaged by personal turmoil, took her own life Sunday with a single, self-inflicted gun shot.

Marty Moss, the Sheriff of Cleburne County in Arkansas, said the dog Mccready killed was her late boyfriend David Wilson’s pet. She was home alone when she committed suicide as her two sons have already been entrusted to foster care.
