*A curious tale of James Brown’s body missing from its resting place ended yesterday, let’s hope.

Last week LaRhonda Pettit, a daughter of the king of soul, told the UK’s Daily Mirror that her father’s body disappeared from the home of Deanna Brown Thomas.

According to the funeral director who handled Brown’s burial, the body is in the same place it was in since his death.

Spinner.com reports that Pettit did not go to the police about her claim. Instead, this wild tale of a missing dead body may be connected to a theory the illegitimate daughter has.

She claims the truth about Brown’s death has yet to surface. Pettit believes Brown’s 2006 heart failure due to pneumonia was just a cover up for a drug involved death. Her conspiracy remains unsupported.
