Naomi Judd’s Death

In an interview with Diane Sawyer, Ashley Judd said that her mother, Naomi Judd, died by suicide and made use of a firearm.

“She used a weapon. Mother used a firearm,” Ashley said.”So I don’t want to give you that information, but I understand that we are in a position where if we don’t tell you, someone else will.”

Naomi Judd passed away on April 30, aged 76. During that time, an exact reason for her demise was not provided, though Judd said on social media that “We lost our beautiful mother to the disease of mental illness.” 

“My mother, our mother, couldn’t hold it together until she was inducted into the (Country Music) Hall of Fame by her peers. That is the level of a catastrophe of what was going on inside of her,” Ashley said.

“Because the barrier between the regard in which they held her couldn’t penetrate into her heart, and the lie that the disease told her was so convincing.” 

At the start of the heart-touching interview, Ashley made a statement that she was particularly filled in for her sister, Wynonna, and father to disclose these details on the behalf of the family.

The biggest concern of the family, Ashley said, was that “things about April 30 become public without our control, whether it’s the autopsy or the exact manner of her death.” 

She also gave some more information about the day itself, she said she generally makes visits to her parents. That day, her mother asked Ashley to stay with her, and Judd agreed; after some time, she went up to let her mother know that an acquaintance has come up, and when Judd came back, she saw her mother dead.
