One month after the boyfriend of country star Mindy McCready is believed to have committed suicide, McCready herself apparently has taken her own life.

Authorities in Heber Springs, Ark., found the body of the 37-year-old yesterday on the porch of her home, the same place where longtime boyfriend David Wilson was found. Authorities believe both Wilson and McCready shot themselves.

McCready had struggled for years with alcohol and drugs. She had checked into court-ordered rehab and had given her two young sons up to foster care.
