It’s been almost two months since the passing of music legend Don Cornelius. The autopsy report is now being announced.
By now, we all know Cornelius died of a self inflicted gun shot wound to the head, but the autopsy report uncovered the Soul Train creator suffered from seizures for nearly fifteen years. The seizures Don Cornelius suffered from had to do with an aneurysm. His health took a serious turn for the worse in the last six months of his life and became very depressed.
Cornelius warned his son on February 1st that he didn’t know how much longer he could deal with the pain he was physically in. Don’s son says he rushed right over when his father conveyed that message to him. By the time Don Cornelius’ son arrived to his father’s home, Don Cornelius had already shot himself in the right temple with a pistol.
Don Cornelius’ son called 911 and Don was rushed to a local hospital where he was later pronounced dead.
