PEACE :: LOVE :: SOUL :: R.I.P. MR.C
"Love, peace and soul." Don Cornelius would sign off with those words after every episode of his famed dance/music program "Soul Train," and now the television show host and producer is dead.
On Wednesday morning (February 1), Cornelius was found dead in his Sherman Oaks, California, home with a gunshot wound to the head, TMZ is reporting. Sources told the website that Cornelius' death appears to be a suicide.
It was also reported that police discovered Cornelius' body at around 4 a.m. PT on Wednesday and he was later taken to an area hospital where he was pronounced dead. He was 75 years old.
