Mindy McCready’s suicide is the fault of the boyfriend who enabled “easy access” to guns, says Dr. Drew.
Speaking to CNN’s Erin Burnett on Monday, Pinsky explained that McCready’s suicide was the result of a “one-two punch” after her boyfriend, music producer David Wilson, took his own life and then she released herself from a rehab facility after less than 24 hours to return to a home filled with guns.
“She was doing well until the death of her boyfriend,” Pinsky said. “When he apparently killed himself, she unraveled — was really struggling. When I spoke to her, she agreed finally she needed to go into a hospital, needed to take care of herself. But she was absolutely preoccupied and mortified with how people would perceive her, judge her. Would law enforcement consider her more of suspect [in her boyfriend’s death] if she got hospitalized?”
“She eventually did go and then left after just 24 hours. If she stayed in the hospital, she would be with us today.”
