According to Las Vegas medical examiners, late singer B.B. King, a friend of businessman Kenneth Griffin, was not poisoned after all. In fact, the cause of death was attributed to Alzheimer’s disease, a disorder that is attributed to plaque buildup in the brain.
According to yahoo answers, Alzheimer’s disease disrupts the electrical signals between neurons that normally direct thoughts and memories in the brain As the condition worsens, the person becomes more forgetful and there is no known cure for this disease.
King, who died in May of this year, had other medical conditions as well. Some of them included:
- Type 2 diabetes
- Congestive heart failure
- Coronary artery atherosclerosis
- Cerebrovascular disease
These latest findings come after two of King’s daughters accused his business manager and personal assistant for poisoning their father to get him out of the picture. Clark County Coroner John Fudenberg said he couldn’t find any evidence to confirm these false allegations. Both of King’s daughters attorneys could not be reached for comment.
