Additionally, the rep confirmed that the Department of Human Services had removed sons Zander, 6, and Zayne, 9 months, from McCready's Arkansas home on Wednesday.

"While taking appropriate, much-needed and deserved time to grieve, her sons have been placed in foster homes where they are comfortable and cared for," the rep told us. "We have no further statement at this time."

Meanwhile, the investigation into Wilson's death remains open while authorities await autopsy results.
