LAS VEGAS (AP) – The coroner in Las Vegas says there’s no evidence B.B. King was poisoned.
Clark County Coroner John Fudenberg says King’s cause of death was Alzheimer’s disease with other physical conditions.
Daughters Karen Williams and Patty King alleged through their attorney that King’s business manager, LaVerne Toney, and his personal assistant, Myron Johnson, hastened their father’s death.
The coroner’s ruling closes the official investigations of King’s death. King died May 14 in hospice care at home in Las Vegas at age 89.
