No confirmed details, but there is an entry on her Wikipedia page that mentions a suicide via self-inflicted gunshot.

If it was suicide and if it was because of post-partum depression, at least she didn't hurt her child - physically, at least. Sad story all around.

If I recall from the short lived reality show, she was majorly F-d up - or appeared that way. The entire family is in need a major counseling, and now it appears that the drama has taken it's toll and she committed suicide. . Such a sad ending.. I hope she found the peace she was searching for.

I'm really the first one to mention meth? Really? That family is a bunch of speedfreaks. No surprise it caught up to one of them.

I heard it was prescription drugs overdose. She was bi-polar and also had had post-partum depression.
