(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."

Thank God, David Wilson was not Mindy's live-in boyfriend. He may have gone berserk and killed her too. Thus a murder-suicide and another orphaned baby. At least her baby has one remaining loving parent. Not like baby Zoey. Her @#$# supposed father killed her mom, then ran to his job and shoots himself in the presence of his bosses. So sad. RIP kansandra Perkins (Zoey's mom) RIP David WIlson
