Police release suicide note of Naomi Judd containing heartbreaking message about daughter

Police have released country singer Naomi Judd’s devastating suicide note and photos of the blood-spattered bed where she took her own life.

The Williamson County Sheriff’s Department released a number of documents this week connected to Judd’s suicide including the note instructing that her daughter Wynonna Judd should be banned from her funeral because she is “mentally ill,” according to the Daily Mail.

“Do not let Wy come to my funeral. She’s mentally ill,” the note stated with the word “not” underlined on the post-it note stuck to documents. It was found near the 76-year-old’s body after she shot herself at her Tennessee mansion in April.

Wynona Judd did not attend her mother’s funeral according to a source who spoke with Radar Online. She evidently believes that her mother wrote the note when she was not mentally stable.

Police photos of the scene reportedly included ones of blood-stained bedding as well as a photograph of a gun on her nightstand.

Notes written by a deputy at the crime scene contending Naomi Judd had threatened to kill herself “half a dozen times” were also released.

Judd’s daughters, Wynona and Ashley, as well as her husband of 33 years, Larry Strickland, attempted to keep the police report from being made public. They dropped those efforts in December.

“Those who are victims of losing a loved one to suicide shouldn’t be re-victimized again,” a statement from the Judds read, according to the Guardian.

Also revealed were the deputy’s notes that included conversations that the police had with the family the day she died. Stickland was in Europe when Judd passed away. The police report noted that the singer did not like being left alone.

“Didn’t like being alone/Larry in Europe,” a sheriff’s deputy stated in a note. “She threatened to kill herself a half a dozen times, guns were involved. She locked herself in her bedroom. She would threaten to shoot the people who took her (illegible.)”

In the notes, it was detailed how Ashley Judd found her mother. Police comforted the actress as they waited 30 minutes for an ambulance.

The actress originally found her mother in a manic state and immediately called the family doctor, Dr. Ted Klontz according to the Daily Mail. She texted the doctor, “She’s having an episode. Yelling and crying and pacing … Emergency … Please come to mom’s … Now.”

She told police that her mother screamed, “Kill me, kill me now. I don’t want to live!”

Ashley Judd told her mother, “Now, mom, you know I’m not going to do that.”

When the doctor arrived, she told him, “She was screaming and speaking in tongues.”

Naomi Judd seemed to calm down when the doctor arrived.

When Ashley Judd returned to her mother’s room, she found her with a bullet wound to the head. She told Klontz, “She did it. She finally did it.”

Both Wynona and Ashley Judd were written out of their mother’s will. Strickland is now the executor of her estate and has sole authority on determining how assets will be dispersed. The will was written five years ago when Naomi Judd is said to have been of sound mind.

Upon Strickland’s death, Wynonna Judd said she and her sister will “split” the $25 million estate and that she has no plans to contest the will, according to Page Six.

Following the death of Naomi Judd, her daughters attended her induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame on May 1, the day after her suicide.

According to Radar Online, a friend who is reportedly close to Wynonna Judd said, “Wy knows better than anyone the mental struggles Naomi went through, but it just crushes her to think her mom’s dying thoughts were so vicious.”
