Just nearly one week after the passing of blues guitarist B.B. King, there are new claims surfacing about the late singer’s death.
King’s two daughters are now claiming that their father was poisoned to death by his closest associates. Over the weekend, Patty King and Karen Williams filed two separate affidavits that suggested that B.B. was killed. “I believe my father was poisoned and that he was administered foreign substances to induce his premature death,” both stated in the documents. “I believe my father was murdered.”
Williams and King accused King’s business manager his personal assistant of neglect and claimed that they were medically unlicensed. But despite some of the accusations, the coroner has confirmed that the preliminary autopsy results don’t substantiate Patty and Karen’s allegations.
B.B. died on May 14 inside his Las Vegas home at the age of 89. The musician, who suffered from type II diabetes, had been in hospice care for two weeks prior to his passing.
