SAD!!! Soul Train Creator Don Cornelius Dies In An Apparent Suicide!!

| Filed under: R.I.P.Sad Sad

Oh no!!! Our heart is breaking!!

Don Cornelius was a visionary!!

But unfortunately the 75 year old Soul Train creator has been found dead in his Sherman Oaks home from an apparent suicide.

Police found him with what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

Super sad!! We remember watching Soul Train and LOVING all the funky styles and dance moves.

Rest in peace, Don!! He lived such a creative life.

We wish his friends and family well… our thoughts are with them.

Watch the video above to see Don host the beloved show!!

    This just breaks my heart…….if he only knew how much we looked forward to Sat mornings 11-12, listening to his cool ass voice and teaching us the Soul Train line dance. I still catch a few re-runs on cable :) Love, Peace and Soooouuuul Don.

    Sad, maybe he was facing a health crisis and instead of suffering he chose to end his life.
    Wasn't he having a hard time personally for awhile? Accused of beating up some woman or something?
    Why do you have comments on for this but we can't comment on Aaaron's sister. That is really sad as she was only 25.
