Mindy McCready News: Country Singer Never A Suspect In Boyfriend's Death (REPORT)

Country singer Mindy McCready died Sunday at age 37 from an apparent suicide, just weeks after her boyfriend was found dead on Jan. 13. Though details surrounding his death have been kept tight by investigators, songwriter David Wilson reportedly died from a gunshot wound to the head. "Today, we mourn the loss of my life partner and my children's father, David Wilson," McCready said in a statement at the time. "David was my soulmate; he was a caregiver and guiding hand to our sons, Zander and Zayne."

Now TMZ reports that the singer -- whose troubled relationship with drugs made her an immediate media speculation -- was never a suspect in Wilson's death. Cleburne County Sheriff Marty Moss told the website that "Mindy never changed her story" and that any reports claiming that the country star was involved in some way were false.
