James Brown body stolen from cemetery

james brown dead body missing from it's crypt grave

James Brown

The late James Brown — the Godfather of Soul who passed away in December of 2006 — is apparently missing! According to his daughter LaRhonda Pettit, Brown’s body has not been entombed in his crypt as he should because, she believes, there are people trying to keep his cause of death a secret. Now, I’m not sure how Pettit knows that her father’s body is missing from his crypt but she seems pretty sure that his body has been stolen away.

James Brown’s daughter has claimed the singer’s body has gone missing from its crypt. LaRhonda Pettit, 48, alleges the body of Brown, who died in December 2006 aged 73, is being hidden to prevent a full autopsy being carried out. Ms Pettit said the official cause of death, which was said to be a heart attack brought by pneumonia, is not the real reason behind the Godfather of Soul’s passing. She said: ‘My daddy’s body has disappeared. I have no clue where it was taken, but I need to know where. I’m convinced his death was suspicious and I want the people responsible brought to justice. The only way to do that is to exhume his body and have an autopsy. I cannot understand why one was never conducted.’ Ms Pettit, who underwent a DNA test in 2007 to prove she was Brown’s daughter, believes there were several people involved in Brown’s death. She added to America’s Globe newspaper: ‘It was common knowledge that my daddy took illegal drugs. He was also hooked on various prescription painkillers. At the very least there were enablers who helped cause his death.’ Ms Pettit, who is 99.99 per cent likely to be Brown’s daughter, said the singer had a relationship with her mother after meeting her at one of his performances in the 1960s. She is one of 12 people who came forward following Brown’s death claiming to be one of his illegitimate children. Brown’s body is said to have been sealed in a temporary crypt at his daughter Deanna’s South Carolina Home while arrangements are made for his permanent burial.

I would surely hope that Ms. Pettit is mistaken in her claims but in a world where a thing like this is entirely possible, you can’t help but wonder what if? Take for example, the fact that the body of Eva Paron (Evita, herself) went missing for many years after her death. In her case, the body wasn’t being hidden to prevent autopsy … she just kinda got lost as her embalmed body toured the world so mourners could see her one last time. While it’s highly unlikely that James Brown’s body is missing, I suppose we cannot be sure unless his body is exhumed to make sure it is where it should be. It would be very sad and extremely disrespectful if Pettit is merely making these claims for publicity … but, then again, we also live in a world where people would do anything for a little fame and notoriety. What do y’all think … do YOU think James Brown is somewhere out there?
