Don Cornelius Death Ruled A Suicide
The agency made the determination after conducting an autopsy on Cornelius’ body on Friday. Investigators are still awaiting the results of toxicology tests before issuing a final report.
Police quickly ruled out foul play after responding to the son’s tip after receiving a call from his father.
Cornelius, 75, started Soul Train in 1970. It became one of the longest-running syndicated shows in history, introducing audiences to many top music acts and providing a never-before-seen TV platform for black culture.
His son, Tony Cornelius, released a statement last week asking for privacy and thanking fans.
