Tia Monett Morris, the LAPD captain who was in charge of running the crime scene after Don Cornelius killed himself, once appeared on Soul Train when she was a teenager.

Morris joined the LAPD back in 1981. But before joining the rank and file of the police world, Morris used to “cut a rug” on the hit TV show Soul Train.

She appeared on the show numerous times as a teenager, which probably made the crime scene a bit more personal to her I imagine.

Morris confirmed the rumor to TMZ by admitting to having been on the show but did not disclose any details about the death of Mr. Cornelius.

The cause of Don Cornelius’ death was officially ruled a suicide last week by coroner investigators.

R.I.P. Don Cornelius: September 27, 1936 – February 1, 2012
