Well, it appears everything got too much for the troubled starlet. It has been reported that the 37-year-old mother-of-two shot both herself and her dog yesterday (February 17th), and her body was found after the sound of gunshots alarmed neighbors. This is after the apparent suicide (inflicted by gunshot wound) of her boyfriend David Wilson (who was also the father of her youngest son, who is 10 months old), followed by Mindy falling into alcohol-fuelled depression. Her children were taken into care just a week or so ago, and Mindy was first committed to inpatient care for her problems, quickly being moved into outpatient because everything has apparently been put into perspective for her.
Unfortunately, it was not to be. With a history of violence, trouble with the law and alcohol and prescription drug abuse, sadly I am almost not surprised that Mindy chose to end it. Sometimes the price of fame is too much, and we can only hope that Mindy’s family can pull together for the love and stability of the children she left behind.
