Days before her tragic death, Mindy McCready told close friends that the FBI spent several hours asking the late country music singer questions concerning the investigation into the death of her boyfriend, David Wilson, sources told E! News.

Wilson died Jan. 13 of a gunshot wound that was reported to police as having been self-inflicted, but authorities are still trying to piece together what exactly happened.

Danno Hanks, a private investigator and close friend of McCready, told E! News last week that the FBI had visited McCready at her Heber Springs, Ark., home just prior to her passing.

"She told me the FBI showed up at the house and they were there for five hours, basically doing an investigation into the investigation of how the local police department has been conducting their investigation," Hanks said.

Meanwhile, another of McCready's close friends says McCready also told him last Friday about the FBI visit. She similarly told the friend that "they were doing an investigation into the investigation," he tells E! News.

"All I know is they came to question her for six hours and they had a chick there who was like a lie detector, who could tell or read body language and facial movements," the friend shared with E! News. "That's all I know. They were there to ask questions about whatever happened on the day David died."

However, Little Rock Federal Bureau of Investigation Media Coordinator Special Agent Kimberly Brunell informed E! News, "It is not our practice to comment on the general interactions with the public. We are not going to comment if we had contact with her or not. I can't comment or deny if we have had contact with someone."

And Cleburne County Sheriff Marty Moss told E! News that he was unaware of any FBI involvement in Wilson's death investigation.

Meanwhile, another source recalled McCready saying that the FBI had told her "it was ridiculous her kids had been taken away and she should get them back."

The source had no other details concerning the FBI.
