Such a talented actor with a great voice. I loved his narration on A&E.
I was shocked to learn of his death just yesterday. Rest In Peace Paul Winfield.
The first time that I saw Mr. Paul Winfield was when I viewed the movie “Sounder” many years ago. He portrayed the husband/father with great passion. I was so pleased to hear his excellent narration of the City Confidential stories every week. I miss him very much.

Surfed in, after seeing an episode of Star Trek : the next generation. Paul Winfield was on this episode as a leader of a race that the crew encounters “tarmack at garrad”
Then I realized..is this the Paul Winfield I was familiar with from City Confidential? I too had a burning question of why he was no longer narrating City Confidential. My room mate even argued that he was still doing it! LOL, but his voice is unmistakable, Drunkenly Soothing as I refer to it, and in no means a disrespect. I have read and learned much more about the man, and I am saddened by his passing.
All the best to his friends and family who know they have lost a very unique soul.
I, like alot of other people, starting watching City Confidential because of Paul Winfield’s mesmerizing voice. I just yesterday told my husband I LOVE his voice it is like no other!!! I just read an old Entertainment Weekly and found out he died. I am so upset. I also feel this world continues to demonstrate it’s racism… how so, by acting in the manner that his death was not even newsworthy. No one I called saw any announcement on the nightly news and that is a darn outright SHAME! This man was a well known distinguished, respected actor and narrarator that will soreley be missed by alot more people than the media must believe. City Confidential will not be the same without his voice, and I doubt if I will still be interested in watching. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.
