B.B. King’s Daughters: His Business Manager Murdered Him.

An autopsy has been performed on legendary blues singer and guitarist BB King, following accusations from his daughters that he was poisoned by his own staff. King, the guitar legend and King of the Blues, died earlier this month at the age of 89, under hospice care, and after surviving numerous health scares over the years.

King Dies At 89) The two allege that Toney gave King medication to induce diabetic shock, and kept all family members away from him in the days leading up to his death. Karen Williams and Patty King, two of King’s daughters, have said in separate affidavits provided to the Associated Press that their father was poisoned. “I believe my father was murdered,” both women said. Earlier in 2015, the two daughters accused Toney of elder abuse and neglect, but the case was thrown out of court because there wasn’t sufficient evidence.

Test results from an autopsy performed Sunday will take eight weeks to be processed, but police say there is no active homicide investigation, and an attorney for B.B. The coroner ruled that he had died from multi-infarct dementia, which was caused by a series of small strokes which that were because of his diabetes. (RELATED: B.B. Disputes among family members and friends in the wake of a high-profile death have been sadly common in recent months; Casey Kasem’s remains were at the center of a famously bizarre battle between his wife and children, and Robin Williams’s wife and children also were at odds over his estate before agreeing to settle privately. A petition alleged that Toney had blocked King’s friends from visiting him, that large sums of money had disappeared from the singer’s bank accounts, and that Toney had added her family members to King’s payroll.

A procession and memorial are scheduled in Memphis on Wednesday, followed by a Friday viewing and burial in King’s hometown of Indianola, Mississippi.
