Naomi Judd's death sparked a flurry of speculation on Twitter, with many fans presuming she committed suicide, while others pointed out that she had been battling hepatitis C for decades. Other Twitter users speculated that the singer had Alzheimer's or dementia, however her recent performance on the CMT Awards with her daughter Wynonna did not suggest this.
