— Mindy McCready’s funeral is being held in her hometown of Fort Myers.

The funeral for the late country star will be Tuesday at Crossroads Baptist Church. A memorial is scheduled in Nashville next month.

McCready committed suicide Feb. 17 at her home in Arkansas, days after leaving a court-ordered substance-abuse treatment program.

The 37-year-old mother of two died from a single gunshot in her head head about a month after her longtime boyfriend, David Wilson, was believed to have killed himself in the same location.

McCready hit the top of the country charts before personal problems sidetracked her career.

In 1996, her “Guys Do It All the Time” hit No. 1. Her other hits included “Ten Thousand Angels” and her album by that title sold 2 million copies.

    I wonder if SHE shot her boyfriend?

    I wonder when the ME will decide on the manner of death with this case. I haven't seen anything yet.

    She has been cleared in the death of her boyfriend but they have not determined if it was a suicide or homicide. It was announced a few days ago that hers was indeed a suicide. I keep thinking of those 2 little boys who have no mother and one without either a mother or father. What a tragic mess.
