James Brown's publicist has hired a private detective to investigate the late soul legend's death.

Jacque Hollander believes the singer was murdered and has never accepted that he suffered a heart attack and died on Christmas Day in 2006. She claims she has been forced into hiding after receiving death threats for going public with her murder claims.

Hollander also claims that Brown's son-in-law Darren Lumar was killed in November 2008 following his appearance on a local Georgia TV show, where he offered up his thoughts about the soul legend's death insisting, "There's not a bone in my body that believes my father-in-law died from congestive heart failure."


Brown's former publicist is convinced Lumar was murdered because he knew too much. "He was going to tell the truth about what was done to James Brown," she told US tabloid The Globe "Now I am living in fear of my life because I'm the one who can bring forth the truth."
