Soul Train host and creator Don Cornelius was found shot dead in his Los Angeles home on Wednesday February 1, 2012 from an apparent suicide according to the Los Angeles Coroner office and the L.A.P.D.

Someone called the police department at Cornelius home in Sherman Oaks, California on Mulholland Drive a little bit before 4:00 am Wednesday morning and it was reported gun shots were fired. When the police arrived at the home, they entered the home when someone let them in and found Cornelius lifeless on the floor which appeared to be gun shot to the head that seemed to be self-inflicted according to Ed Winter, the Los Angles County assistant chief.

Cornelius was pronounced dead at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center at 4:56 a.m.

Every week television from all over tuned in to watch the hit running show Soul Train;  it was not only a place to hear current music, see your favorite performer singing their latest hit and  great dancing,  it was  the fashion, make-up and hair show.  Fashion starts in New York and ends in Los Angeles; however,  Pat Davis styles started in Hollywood  and landed in New York.

Patricia Davis is best known as Pat Davis,  Madame Butterfly, The Butterfly and China Doll. The dancers were featured in the magazine “Right On.”

Davis was an eye catcher with her great dance moves, well styled hair and grace.  Pat was considered the prettiest dancer on the show.   My favorite Soul Train Dancers were Damita Jo Freeman whom I know but have lost contact,  and Pat Davis.   There was a Soul Train Reunion both Freeman and Davis  attended.

Thanks To Stephen McMillian Pat Davis Has Been Found And Interviewed.  Davis and McMillian Are Good Friends
