Our thoughts and well-wishes go out to Mindy‘s friends, family, and loved ones during this difficult time.

Now shes dead?? somethings fishy. she had to kill him. how selfish could you be leaving your kids alone FOREVER!! shes guilty in my eyes…But i know.. we dont know the whole story..this is just sad ;(

I love how people care all of a sudden for a woman who is dead now more than she was when she was alive! Humanity is sick!

Don’t want to sound negative but I have a 5 & 7 yr old and just can’t imagine ever purposefully leaving them. Those poor babies.

Those poor little babies of hers. She led a very troubled life, people tried to help her, but sometimes what will be happens.


This is so sad. :( So young and gone too soon. My prays and thoughts are with her family. Especially, the kids. Horrible news. :(

bloody hell!

another Dr Drew patient, who is next? Sizemore?

@beyond sad:

Majority of suicides take place when people are not thinking clearly and done on a whim. I have been suicidal before, and almost committed. I had no clue about the things around nor did I even know who I was, because I didn’t know what was going on.

Suicide is something that is thought of lightly, but unless you have ever been’s completely seeing and being on the verge of it.

I’m not attacking you. Just sharing info that I know personally.

Regardless of the details, this is sad for the children and families who lost their daughter.

Oh well! She wasn’t that talented of a singer. She was more well known for her drug abuse!!!

As one who had a very close relative succeed in carrying out their suicide leaving behind unbearable pain for my family, I am glad you were able to fail.

Life will never be the same for my family, there are so many unanswered questions, family did all that they possibly could and thought things were getting better like MindyMc’s Dad did who just left her today to return to his home.

Hope you are able to stay strong.

She’s going to Hell no doubt to join her boyfriend. When life sucks and is extra cruel then you always have Death to fall back on to escape the humans…

i do believe she killed her boyfriend. Since she killed not only herself, but also her innocent helpless dog, she is fully capable of murdering another person, her boyfriend. this lady was insane, & should’ve been locked up asap.

Wow suicide is so final..and to leave her children behind. Her children will be a mental mess…why lady why?

I wake-up everyday wishing I were dead. Then I hear my children calling me and realize life has to go on. My deepest sympathy to her children, family and friends. I hope they can find peace.

Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.

I can’t imagine what her boys will have to deal with. Somebody must have know that she was having problems. That things were bad. I just can’t think how she couldn’t have someone around to help. And nobody knows the truth at this point. Nobody knows if she kill anyone. I just can’t imagine what it would be like to know you were innocent and people thinking you were guilty.

so sad.
