Rumor Control: James Brown’s Body Was NOT Stolen

Posted by Media Outrage on March 15, 2010

The internet is aghast with rumors that Legendary soul singer James Brown’s body was stolen.  Well it’s not true folks…

Rumors reporting that the body of late soul star James Brown went missing late last week have been revealed as false by the funeral director who managed his burial.

Charlie Reid, of the of the C.A. Reid Funeral Home in Augusta, Georgia, said that the Brown’s body is still entombed at a mausoleum at the home of one of his daughters in South Carolina.

Late last week, LaRhonda Pettit, who claims to be the Godfather of Soul’s illegitimate daughter, alleged that his body was stolen.

“There’s no truth to that,” Reid told the Augusta Chronicle. “It would have had to have gone through us. We would have been contacted if that happened.”

Reid continued to explain that moving Brown’s body “would be a criminal offense,” and “if this was the case, she would need to talk to police.”

Lawyers for Brown’s other daughters say that the body is at the crypt in South Carolina.

Pettit – who has long been suspicious that the listed cause of Brown’s death, pneumonia, is wrong – said that the body was stolen so that an autopsy to prove the cause of death couldn’t be performed.

    Who would want to still a dead body anyway? And if the so called illegitimate daughter is making these claims, I think the police should be talking to her.

    Believe it or not there are grave robbers who sell body parts of the newly deceased and place them on the blackmarket.
