Tina Turner's Son Commits Suicide

Tina Turner looks on during the presentation of the music project 'Beyond - Three Voices For Peace' on May 14, 2009 in Zurich, Switzerland.

Earlier today in Studio City, Tina Turner's oldest son was pronounced dead on the scene by self-inflicted gunshot wound. NY Daily News reports, Craig Raymond Turner, 59-years-old, was found in his home just after noon in Studio City, California. Craig was the eldest child of Turner, who gave birth at the age of 18-years-old before her marriage to musician, Ike Turner. 

Craig's biological father is Raymond Hill, a saxophonist who performed in Ike Turner's band. Craig was adopted by Ike after he and Tina tied the knot.
