Don Cornelius Couldn’t Take Pain Anymore
Don Cornelius' autopsy has been revealed and it showed he was in an extreme amount of pain just days before his death. TMZ reports he told his son "he could not take this [pain] anymore."
According to the report, the "Soul Train" legend had been experiencing seizures as a result of an aneurysm he suffered 15 years ago.
But Don's health took a dramatic turn for the worse in the last 6 months of his life … and he became "very depressed about his failing health."
Don called his son at 3:00 AM on February 1 … and warned his son, "I don't know how long I can take this." Don's son told him he'd rush right over … and Don said he'd leave the back door open.
When Don's son arrived to Cornelius' Los Angeles home, he detected an odor of smoke and saw Don seated in a chair with a pistol in his right hand.
He was pronounced dead later on. May he rest in peace.
