26/05/2015

Two of the daughters of blues legend B.B. King have reportedly accused two of their father’s close aides of poisoning him.

The blues legend passed away in his sleep on May 14 at the age of 89.  
 
However, on Monday the Associated Press received documents in which two of King's daughters, Patty King and Karen Williams, claimed their father was poisoned.
 
The girls accused their father's business manager, LaVerne Toney, and his personal assistant, Myron Johnson, of killing him.
 
Coroner, John Fudenberg has said that an autopsy was performed on Sunday on King's body, and that test results could take up to eight weeks. 
 
When asked, The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said their homicide detectives were looking into King's death.
