Ashley Judd is trying to obtain her late mother Naomi Judd’s autopsy report, but officials apparently insist on keeping it private.
Ashley, according to the National Enquirer, was the one who discovered her mother’s lifeless body at home. Therefore, she has every right to know what happened to Naomi.
The police, however, are refusing to provide her with a copy of the autopsy report because they are still conducting an investigation.
According to a source, the officials do not want to reveal what they discovered at the site. In reality, the revolver Naomi used to end her life is still in their possession.
The unnamed insider said:
“Ashley clearly did not participate in this lawsuit. She didn’t actively seek to block the release of the details of her mother’s death or the police report. Ashley had to confront the gory aftermath. I believe she wants the truth to come out to show what mental illness does.”
Wynonna, Naomi’s second daughter, and her husband of 33 years, Larry Strickland, want the late singer’s autopsy report hidden forever. They believe that revealing it for everybody to see will cause more harm than good.
The informant furthered:
“Wynonna wants to preserve the Judds’ reputation at all costs. She wants everybody to think her family’s perfect. And Larry doesn’t seem to want the media to keep digging up details, especially any information on the gun that was used, who owned it, or what weapons were in the house.”
But one thing is certain: Naomi and Strickland’s home is rife with firearms. As a result, it’s quite possible that the pistol used by the singer to commit suicide originated from their collection.
Meanwhile, there are rumors that Naomi sought professional care after attempting to commit suicide years ago but failed.
The tattler shared:
“Naomi went into an inpatient program for anxiety and depression. Afterward, she was put on drugs – antianxiety medication, and antidepressants and saw a therapist. Before her suicide, Naomi was going through another bad bout of depression after gaining weight.”
However, the statements of the tabloid should be taken with a grain of salt. There hasn’t been much information disclosed about Naomi’s death. As a result, a tabloid is unlikely to be aware of all of these details.
