Two of bluesman BB King's daughters, Karen Williams and Patty King, are alledging that they believe their late father may have been poisoned and/or neglected by business manager LaVerne Toney, and his personal assistant, Myron Johnson. They filed seperate affidavits alledging abuse by the men giving King lethal doses of a certain substance that would induce a diabetic shock, and an autopsy is being performed to search for any signs of foul play.
BB King died at the age of 89 in Las Vegas earlier this month. He is survived by 11 of his 15 children, and outsiders of the family are speculating that an all-out war to control his large estate will ensue. Forensic findings will take weeks to be released to see if foul play was indeed the cause of King's death.
