“Our coroner takes jurisdiction over #BBKing body, performs autopsy. Results:6-8wks min,” reports the Clark County, Nevada coroner’s office on Twitter. That’s a reference to the body of B.B. King, blues legend, who died weeks ago. Two of King’s daughters believe the bluesman was poisoned and didn’t die of natural causes, as initially suspected. King was 89.
“I believe my father was poisoned and that he was administered foreign substances. I believe my father was murdered,” was the statement from the daughters, Karen Williams and Patty King.
