  • The Blues legend is said to die because of Alzheimer’s.

No evidence found that B.B. King was poisoned before his death

A post-mortem examination of B.B. King’s body has revealed that the Blues legend was not poisoned before his death. The post-mortem was conducted after two of the musician’s daughters made claims back in May that B.B. King had been poisoned by his closest aides just some days before he had died on May 14. B.B. King was 89 when he died. 

The legend’s two daughters Karen Williams and Patty King maintained that the beloved singer did not die a natural death but was actually murdered by those closest to him. The daughters, 2 of King’s 11 surviving and adoptive children had accused King’s business manager LaVerne Toney and even his personal assistant Myron Johnson as the suspects behind the murder of the singer.

However an autopsy report has finally revealed that the singer’s real cause of death is not poison but is the Alzheimer’s disease plus his physical conditions as the singer also had coronary disease, heart failure and even the effects of Type 2 diabetes. 

In May the ‘Mu Lucille’ singer’s lawyer Brent Bryson had stated to US Weekly the allegations of King’s daughters as ridiculous and stated that he hopes the two have a factual basis. He also stated that its unfortunate but music icons also die and Ms.

Toney did everything she could to carry out the wished of Mr. King when he was alive and even now continues to carry out his wishes. The Blues legend was laid to rest in Indianola, Mississippi on the 30th of May, 2015.
