Unfortunately, sometimes the clues aren’t noticed soon enough.
And with Mindy McCready’s suicide, private investigator Danno Hanks is speaking about a musical project she was working on and how it all might have been a sign of her sad and tragic plan.
Danno has worked with Mindy since she appeared on Celebrity Rehab, and most recently, was asked to help with a video of a cover song she was working on.
Mindy was creating a video for the song I'll See You Yesterday, written by a fan, Courtney Dashe, and produced by David Wilson. As Danno worked with her on it, he thought it was about getting past her fiancé’s recent passing, but he couldn’t have been more wrong as he revealed:
“She said she wanted to put together this video to help people deal when someone had suffered a suicide in their life and God, she was literally having me write her suicide note. If I had known, I would have made sure someone was there with her all the time.”
He also felt that since she was busy working on music again, things were going in the right direction, but Mindy’s musical project was actually a sign of the end as Danno admitted:
“The strange thing about it in hind sight, looking back she is feeding me this stuff for the video she said, 'I have someone working on getting all the rights in place it will be licensed for Courtney to get the royalties,' and I was like, 'Hey what is the big deal?' But now I understand she wanted to make sure it got out there and there was no copyright problems for it being up there.”
And even more eerie and tragic, the day before she was found dead, Mindy sent Danno a frame for the video with contact info for a suicide hotline. He admitted he didn’t catch on to her possible call for help:
“I thought she was talking about sending a message about suicide for David's death but this is unbelievable. She was sending me a message. I wish I had been more alert to what it was.”
Our thoughts are with all those suffering from the loss.
And we hope that anyone contemplating suicide can reach out for help before it’s too late because it is available.
