Don Cornelius Suicide

LAPD Capt. on Scene

Was Once on 'Soul Train'

2/11/2012 6:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Captain Tia Monett Morris joined the Los Angeles Police Department back in 1981. But before she was solving crimes, Capt. Morris appeared on Soul Train.
The LAPD captain who ran the crime scene on the day Don Cornelius killed himself was no stranger to the legendary TV host ... because in her younger days, she appeared on "Soul Train" ... TMZ has learned. 

Captain Tia Monett Morris joined the Los Angeles Police Department back in 1981. But before she was solving crimes, Capt. Morris appeared on "Soul Train" as a dancer back when she was a teenager. 

We called Capt. Morris for details about her time on the show -- but she was tightlipped, only confirming she had indeed appeared on the show. 

10-4, captain.

What is up with the women of LAPD? They all look like men and not just this woman but all of them. Go the website and see for yourself....don't take my word for it.

I wonder if he beat the hell out of her on the Soul Train set and then threatened her over keeping her mouth shut about it... or is that something he saved for his white wife later in life.
Such a very VERY low bar for black role models, I guess. Spousal abuse? No problem. He's a TV legend!
