Police investigate allegation BB King was poisonedBDTN Editor Ste Murray at 11:15 Labels: [url=http://breakingdownthnews.blogspot.com/search/label/Suspicious deaths]Suspicious deaths[/url]
Las Vegas police Lt Ray Steiber confirmed that homicide detectives are investigating the allegation.
The guitarist passed away peacefully in his sleep at his Las Vegas home on 14 May after a career spanning more than six decades.
His daughters, Karen Williams and Patty King, lay out their claim in documents provided by their lawyer to the Associated Press.
Clark County Coroner John Fudenberg said on Monday that a post-mortem examination had been performed a day earlier on King's embalmed body.
But the test results are expected to take up to eight weeks.
Memorials are planned this week in Memphis, Tennessee, and Indianola, Mississippi, for the musician.
The lawsuit is the latest salvo in the King daughters' bitter legal dispute with their father's aides.
Days before he passed away, Ms Williams and Ms King lost a legal bid to prove their father was being abused.
The ruling in a Nevada family court kept aides in legal control of his affairs.
King's daughters accused aides of stealing money and of neglecting their father's medical needs.
"We lost the battle, but we haven't lost the war," Ms Williams said outside court after that lawsuit was thrown out.
