Death Of Don Cornelius Officially Ruled Suicide

Last week’s death of Soul Train impresario Don Cornelius came as quite a shock to those in the entertainment industry and those who had become acquainted with Cornelius during his tenure as Soul Train host. Equally shocking was the unofficial report that his death came at his own hands. Rolling Stone is now reporting that coroners have officially ruled the cause of his death as a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

A post mortem was performed on Friday which led to the determination that he had shot himself in the head. Toxicology test results have yet to be determined.

There has still been no explanation as to what may have caused Cornelius to take his own life.
