Daughters Claims B.B. King Was Murdered
Both Williams and King were denied visitation to see their father in his final days. The Associated Press obtained court documents in which Patty King and Williams both state, “I believe my father was poisoned and that he was administered foreign substances.” The went on to say, “I believe my father was murdered.” King’s body was autopsied over the weekend with results expected in six to eight weeks.
The daughters claims come after Patty King swore in an affidavit obtained by the AP that “she saw Johnson administer to King two drops of an unknown substance on his tongue during evenings for several months before his death, and that Toney never told her what the substance was.” Toney responded, “They’ve been making allegations all along. What’s new?” while King’s attorney has called the claims “unfounded and disrespectful.”
