“SOUL TRAIN” CREATOR DON CORNELIUS DEAD IN SUICIDE

 

Don Cornelius, creator and legend of Soul Train was found dead at his home  with a self-inflicted gunshot to the head.  A family member of  Don Cornelius arrived at his Mulholland Drive home in Encino on Wednesday morning and found the “Soul Train” creator with a gunshot wound to the head, authorities said. He was rushed to Cedars Sinai Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, according to law enforcement sources. His death is being investigated by the Los Angeles Police Department and L.A. County coroner’s office. The sources said detectives think it was a self-inflicted gunshot wound but stressed they are still investigating. He was 75 and recently had gone through a divorce.  Don was plagued with health issue for years including a stroke and a condition that required brain surgery.  It’s sad that he had to leave us in the way he did but he will never be forgotten.  R.I.P. Don Cornelius
