Many fans were shocked when Naomi Judd died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound a day before being inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. The country music icon reportedly suffered from mental illness.
Ashley Judd, in an interview aired on ABC’s Good Morning America, revealed her family wanted to control the flow of information about the death before an autopsy was released. She added that, despite her mom’s imminent induction to the Country Music Hall of Fame, she was not able to keep facing the disease.
Now, a new report divulges the details that the coroner and local cops are hiding about the shocking death of Naomi Judd. Keep on reading to know more details.
Naomi Judd Battled Depression For Decades?
Globe Magazine, in its upcoming June 6, 2022 issue, claimed a massive mysterious cover-up has buried the shocking truth about the death of Naomi Judd, who shot herself in a fit of depression on April 30 after returning from Austria. The body of the late singer was reportedly buried on May 7 after a private closed-casket service at Christ Church in Nashville.
Insiders also told the magazine that daughters Ashley and Wynonna gave brief eulogies. Dolly Parton also, allegedly, said some words. However, the family of Naomi Judd is keeping the location of her grave a huge secret.
Tennessee’s Williamson County Sheriff’s department, headed by Sheriff Dusty Rhoades, continues to “stonewall” what happened, allegedly banning the release of 911 calls, police reports, witness statements, and any details, claiming it is conducting an “ongoing death investigation.”
The bureaucrats have reportedly kept mum and hid the condition of Naomi Judd’s body, the spot of her gunshot wound, and anything else discovered during the postmortem.
Unnamed insiders told Globe Naomi Judd put a gun in her mouth and pulled the trigger. The coroner, however, would not confirm and insist lab results would not be ready for public consumption for up to 12 more weeks. The official, as per the publication, noted that results may never come to light, especially if a court order stops the release of the autopsy report.
An outraged informant close to Naomi Judd and her family stated:
“Naomi Judd’s death has been completely covered up. There is talk the family will seek a court order to stop the autopsy from ever being made public. What do they have to hide?”
Ashley Judd revealed that her mother was at home because she did not feel well. When the actress left their home to greet a neighbor who stopped by, Naomi Judd reportedly then blew herself away in an upstairs bedroom.
The devastated High Crimes star stated:
“I went upstairs to let her know that the friend was there and I discovered her. I have both grief and trauma from discovering her.”
The body of the late Naomi Judd was said to be in a closed casket and almost no details were revealed by her family, except for Wynonna sharing during a TV tribute that her mother’s “eyebrows were still perfect.” Local cops and medical examiners are accused of conspiring to squash the heartbreaking details of the late songstress’ death to keep her relatives happy.
An unidentified source, who noted Wynonna’s son with ex-husband Arch Kelly, Elijah Kelly, is a deputy with the Williamson County Sheriff’s department said:
“The authorities there take care of their own and keep things under wraps. It’s little wonder that you never hear anything about his famous family! His granny Naomi was particularly beloved to him.”
On the sheriff’s part, a representative insisted every death investigation is conducted the same way and it takes time to release results. It stated:
“We are waiting on information to come back from various labs. There is nothing out of the ordinary here. The process is the same for any other person or any other case.”
However, one mystery involves how Naomi Judd got her hands on a firearm. Sources claimed family members would hide guns from the late singer since she had threatened suicide many times before and announced she was going to shoot herself.
Ashley Judd, in her autobiography, recalled hearing Naomi Judd fighting with a guy she had brought home and fired a shot at him. An informant stated:
“Naomi always had a crazy streak and was honestly dangerous about guns. Her death was incredibly tragic, but many saw it as sadly inevitable. It would be easiest for the family and everyone if the authorities would just release their findings. Then Naomi and the whole matter could be finally laid to rest and at peace.”
The family of the late Naomi Judd has yet to comment on the reports claiming that they are trying to keep details of the songstress’ tragic death under wraps. So, devoted supporters of the “Grandpa” hitmaker should take all these unverified reports lightly until everything is proven true and correct.

Wynonna Judd penned that Naomi Judd inspired her to share the things she knows, noting that “there is so much happening in the world right now.” The singer furthered:
“I DO know, that the pain of losing Mom in 4/30 to suicide is so great, that I often feel like I’m not ever going to be able to fully accept and surrender to the truth that she left the way she did. This cannot be how the Judds story ends.”
Wynonna and Ashley paid tribute to their mother at Naomi Judd: A River Of Times Celebration, which aired on CMT earlier this month. “We’ve had counseling,” Wynonna revealed during the show, prompting Ashley to shout out to their family therapist.
