Daughters Of B.B. King Claim Their Father Was Murdered 
BHR Hollywood Reports......US authorities are investigating the death of blues legend BB King after two of his daughters claimed he was poisoned.

Daughters Karen Williams and Patty King alleged that family members were prevented from visiting while King's business manager, LaVerne Toney, and his personal assistant, Myron Johnson, hastened their father's death.

Three doctors determined that King was appropriately cared-for, and King received 24-hour care and monitoring by medical professionals "up until the time that he peacefully passed away in his sleep," attorney Brent Bryson told the Associated Press.

"I believe my father was poisoned and that he was administered foreign substances," Patty King and Williams say in identically worded sections of affidavits provided to The Associated Press by their lawyer, Larissa Drohobyczer.

"I believe my father was murdered," they said.

Lawyers for King's estate said the claims are unfounded and disrespectful.

Nevada's Clark County Coroner said it would investigate with the Las Vegas Police Department's homicide division.

"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 co-ordinating 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."
