WAS BB KILLED? Cops won’t probe fam­ily’s claims

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

PO­LICE have ruled out an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the death of BB King af­ter claims by his fam­ily that he had been mur­dered.

Two of his daugh­ters say that King’s two clos­est aides poi­soned their fa­ther.

But lieu­tenant Ray Steiber said any po­lice ac­tion would de­pend on the find­ings of re­sults of foren­sic tests, which will take up to eight weeks.

Coro­ner John Fu­den­berg in­sisted there was no ev­i­dence to sup­port al­le­ga­tions made by his daugh­ters, Karen Wil­liams and Patty King. three sep­a­rate doc­tors had determined King was prop­erly cared for by med­i­cal pro­fes­sion­als “up un­til the time that he peace­fully passed away in his sleep”.

Wil­liams and King al­lege that Toney – named in King’s will as ex­ecu­tor of an es­tate worth tens of mil­lions of dol­lars – stopped them from vis­it­ing King.

The daugh­ters said: “We be­lieve our fa­ther was poi­soned. We be­lieve he was mur­dered.”
