Beloved Grammy-winning singer Naomi Judd, 76, who suffered from mental health issues for years, committed suicide on April 30, and on Thursday her daughter Ashley revealed that her mother took her own life by shooting herself.
Judd died in the upstairs bedroom of her Nashville, Tennessee area farmhouse the day before she was to be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.
Ashley Judd, who was visiting her mother at the farmhouse and discovered her mother’s body, told ABC’s “Good Morning America,” “Mother used a firearm. That’s the piece of information that we are very uncomfortable sharing, but understand that we’re in a position that if we don’t say it, someone else is going to.”
Ashley Judd added that the Judd family had authorized her to speak candidly
