Don Cornelius, the creator of Soul Train was found dead in his home this morning. And it appears to be a 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.
We're told Cornelius was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
This is horrible, Mr. Cornelius was 75 years old. You never know what a person is dealing with behind closed doors. His family and friends are in my prayers. May he rest in "Love, Peace and Soul."
