George Clinton’s Son Found Dead in Florida Home
George Clinton Jr., the son of funk legend George Clinton, was found dead in his Florida home on Monday, Feb. 1, at the age of 50. The Leon County Sheriff’s Office received a call from a maintenance person who discovered the body at 12:30 PM Monday, at the Tallahassee apartment complex where Clinton lived.
Clinton Jr.’s body was identified, though it appeared that Clinton had been dead for several days. No signs of foul play were found during the Sheriff’s investigation. The cause of death is still undetermined.
“Barring any finding by the Medical Examiner’s Office, our investigation is complete,” said the Sheriff’s Office, who also reported that friends of the Clinton family had responded to their calls and “they did notify George Clinton Jr.’s father of the death.”
