James Brown‘s body is not missing, according to funeral director CA Reid.
As previously reported, the soul legend’s daughter LaRhonda Pettit had said his body had been moved, but the singer is apparently still at rest in South Carolina.
“There’s no truth to that,” the funeral home’s director CA Reid told the August Chronicle. “It would have had to have gone through us. We would have been contacted if that happened.”
Pettit revealed how she was convinced Brown‘s death was suspicious, claiming that she was being denied the opportunity to carry out an autopsy to determine the cause of death.
Brown died in Emory Crawford Long Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia in 2006 of congestive heart failure and pneumonia.
Pettit is one of several people to come forward after his death claiming to be his love child. She was not named as a beneficiary in his will.
