Court Documents Reveal That Naomi Judd Was Discovered Alive After Sustaining a Self-inflicted Gunshot Wound

The family of Naomi Judd filed a court petition demanding that records relating to her death stay hidden. The petition says that Ashley Judd found her mother Naomi Judd alive after a self-inflicted firearm wound and remained with her for roughly 30 minutes until aid arrived, according to the Tennessean.

A day before she and her eldest daughter Wynonna were to be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame, the matriarch of the legendary country music duet the Judds passed away on April 30 at the age of 76.

The court motion tries to prevent the release of law enforcement documents, arguing it would inflict “significant trauma and irreparable harm.” “Naomi Judd should be remembered for the way she lived and not in the matter in which she died,” family sentiments contained within the petition said.

On Friday in Williamson County Chancery Court, the legend’s husband Larry Strickland and daughters Wynonna Judd and Ashley Judd filed the petition. Although Tennessee public records legislation allows for local law enforcement to hold documents while an investigation is active, those records are frequently released once an investigation is closed.

The family also reportedly wanted to keep personal medical and police report private, stating that the papers are “private, incredibly sensitive and do nothing more than re-open the fresh wounds of Naomi Judd’s death.” Ashley Judd told ABC’s Good Morning America, “She obviously was suffering, and as such, her days up to that moment were hurtful to her.”

At the Country Music Hall of Fame event in May, Wynona Judd stated the family prayed Psalm 23 as they said farewell to their mother. For more such updates do follow us only on Lee Daily
