The Violent End to the Life of Marvin Gaye | Final 24

These are the final hours that led to the murder of the Motown legend

He helped to shape the sound of Motown in the 1960s, first as an in-house session player and later as a solo artist with a string of hits, earning him the nicknames “Prince of Motown” and “Prince of Soul”. On his last day alive soul superstar Marvin Gaye was depressed and paranoid. He abandoned his latest tour and was holed up at his parents’ house in Los Angeles, California. His excessive drug use escalated and with it, the tension in the home. His father exploded in a violent climax when Marvin provoked his father into shooting him twice. What were the events that led to the murder? We investigate on Final 24 on Wednesday, August 19th at 9/8c.
