Don Cornelius reported dead (video)

Horrible way to start Black History Month.

TMZ reports that Soul Train founder Don Cornelius has died of an apparent suicide.

Don Cornelius — who famously created “Soul Train” was found dead in his Sherman Oaks, CA home this morning … and law enforcement sources tell us it appears he committed suicide.

We’re told cops discovered the body at around 4 AM PT.  Law enforcement sources tell us … Cornelius died from a gunshot wound to the head and officials believe the wound was self-inflicted.

 

He wasn’t a sports legend or an athlete, but he created a show that transcended all of that. RIP to a music veteran and legend. Enjoy the videos
