Details of the autopsy report for Soul Train’s Don Cornelius reveal the legend had been dealing with unbearable pain for quite some time.
Cornelius died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his temple back in February at age 75.
Now, the report is stating that Don was plagued with seizures after suffering an aneurysm 15 years ago, in which no medication seemed to dull the pain.
