Naomi Judd was still alive when her daughter Ashley found her with a reported self inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

In a shocking essay in New York Times, the grieving famous offspring recounted finding the country singer on Saturday, April 30, as she described it as "the most shattering day of my life."

Making the horrifying moment worse, Ashley said instead of being able to comfort her famous mom in her final moments, authorities harshly interrogated her and kept her away from the dying matriarch.

"I felt cornered and powerless as law enforcement officers began questioning me while the last of my mother’s life was fading," she penned, "I wanted to be comforting her, telling her how she was about to see her daddy and younger brother as she 'went away home,' as we say in Appalachia."

Ashley shared the tragic final moments with Naomi while announcing she is undertaking "legal cause" to prevent the public from accessing police records in sensitive situations and cases.

"She [Naomi] used a weapon … a firearm," she said during an appearance on Good Morning America. "So that’s the piece of information we’re very uncomfortable sharing.”
