Nevada officials said on Monday they would conduct a homicide investigation into the death of B.B. King who died this month at age 89, after two of his daughters leveled accusations that the blues great was murdered.
The Clark County, Nevada coroner’s office said in a posting on Twitter that it had taken jurisdiction over King’s body, and that autopsy results would take a minimum of six to eight weeks.
“Our coroner takes jurisdiction over #BBKing body, performs autopsy. Results:6-8wks min,” it said, adding that a homicide investigation would be conducted along with the Las Vegas police department.
