Investigators have said McCready apparently shot and killed her late boyfriend's dog before she turned the gun on herself Sunday at her home in Heber Springs, Ark. Authorities found McCready's body and the dog on the front porch where her longtime musician boyfriend David Wilson died last month of a gunshot wound to the head.

Authorities are investigating Wilson's death was a suicide and haven't determined an official cause of death yet.
