LAS VEGAS, Nev. --The thrill might be gone, but could it be because of foul play?

After the death of blues legend B.B. King earlier this month, his daughters say they believe he was murdered!

King died in home hospice care on May 14th in Las Vegas.

Days after his funeral, Patty and Karen King both filed identical affidavits saying, "I believe my father was murdered and that he was administered foreign substances."

What?!?! The king of blues poisoned? Yeah, King's daughters claim two of his closest aides were in on it.

"They didn't see their father die, they didn't see him for a week before he died, they want to know and they want to be at peace," said Larissa Drohobyczer, attorney for King’s daughters.

Now the Clark County coroner’s office in Nevada has performed an autopsy on the king of blues based on these allegations.

But the coroner says initial results have turned up "no evidence to substantiate the allegations."

King's doctor initially listed his cause of death as multi-infarct dementia, caused by multiple stokes.

Whatever the results of the autopsy show, we know one thing, we're gonna miss you.
