The recent death of blues legend B.B. King in Nevada will be investigated as a possible homicide following unsubstantiated accusations from two of King’s 11 surviving children that the singer was “poisoned.”
“At this point, we don’t have evidence that these allegations of foul play will be substantiated,” Clark County Coroner John Fudenberg said. “However, we are taking them very seriously and will be conducting a thorough investigation. We are coordinating our investigative efforts with the Homicide Division of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. I expect the investigation will take a minimum of six to eight weeks.”
“I believe my father was poisoned and that he was administered foreign substances,” Patty King and Karen Williams said in identically worded sections of affidavits. King and Williams continued, " In the weeks leading up to our father's death a suspicious looking man, posing as a photographer, always seemed to be hanging around our father. He never seemed to be taking pictures but was regularly playing backgammon with other members of dad's entourage. We just thought he was another mooching freeloader."
The man was described as vaguely Arabic or Armenian in appearance, constantly smoked foul smelling cigars, and seemed to limp a lot, suggesting recent hip-replacement surgery.
