(Newser) – Mindy McCready's drama-filled life just turned tragic: Her boyfriend and the father of her 9-month-old son died yesterday, and authorities confirmed today that he appears to have committed suicide. David Wilson, 34, was found Sunday in his Arkansas home with an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound, the New York Daily News and Fox News report. McCready, 37, got together with Wilson after her affair with Roger Clemens ended, and in a statement she calls him her "soulmate."

"Today, we mourn the loss of my life partner," she wrote yesterday. "David was a precious gift from God to all of us and, yesterday, he returned home."
