Craig Raymond Turner, 59, the son of Tina Turner, took his life with a self-inflicted bullet at his residence in Studio City, Los Angeles.
Craig Raymond Turner, the first-born of singer Tina Turner, was found dead at his home in Studio City, a district northwest of Los Angeles, California.
The lifeless body of the 59-year-old man was found dead Tuesday by the police, but the news is hardly being broadcast in the media.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ed Winter, assistant chief of the Los Angeles County coroner’s office, Craig Raymond Turner shot himself , although details are still lacking until they complete the autopsy.
Craig worked in a Real Estate agency in the San Fernando Valley and belonged to the real estate associations in California and the United States.
His death occurred only hours before his mother, Tina Turner , attended a parade of Giorgio Armani in Paris, from Switzerland, country in which she resides since 1995 with her husband, Erwin Bach of German nationality.
Tina Turner was 18 when she gave birth to Craig.
This is the result of a relationship with the saxophonist Raymond Hill, who played in Kings of Rythm, a band that also included Ike Turner, who would end up being her husband for 16 years.
In his childhood, Craig witnessed Ike’s physical violence towards his Mother,Tina, a situation that led the singer to think about suicide .
So far, neither the artist nor the rest of her relatives have spoken about the death of the 59-year-old man.
