Listen to Mindy McCready on iHeartRadio

(Yahoo!) - Sadly, Mindy McCready’s final 24 hours on earth were some of her worst.

In a taped phone conversation with her good friend just a day before her Sunday afternoon suicide, the country singer sobbed as she recounted finding her boyfriend, David Wilson, just moments after he shot himself in the head at their Heber Springs, Arkansas, home on January 13.

"He was lying on the ground with his brains all over the floor," McCready told private investigator Danno Hanks during the conversation, which was obtained by E! News. "And then I held him and I kissed him and I told him I forgave him. And I said, 'David, none of this means anything. You didn't have to do this. Please, don't die. Please. We love you so much. Please don't die.'"

And he didn’t for two hours, the 37-year-old revealed to Hanks, who claims McCready was aware that their conversation was being recorded. But she didn’t get to be with him in his final moments, she says, because police were still investigating the incident.
