Tina Turner says her son committed suicide because of loneliness
In July, Tina Turner’s eldest son, Craig Raymond Turner, was found dead in an apparent suicide aged 59. Now that the singer is retired and living in Switzerland, she’s more open than ever to detail her life and all the highs and lows that came with it.
That’s right. Now Tina has found peace, saying she has pictures of him ‘all around smiling’. The The Best hitmaker told CBS she is sure Craig was lonely and that this is what really got him more than anything else. ‘I think I’m sensing that he’s in a good place. I really do,’ she added.
Craig, a real estate agent, was found dead with a self-inflicted gunshot wound at his Los Angeles home on July 3. Weeks later, Tina scattered his ashes off the California coast.
