The Godfather of Soul, was 73 when he allegedly passed away from heart failure on Christmas day in 2006. According to The Associated Press,  a woman identified as Jacque Hollander contacted Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard’s office to request a meeting, where she revealed that Brown’s death was caused by another person. She also provided evidence to back up her claims.

D. A Paul Howard will decide whether to open an investigation.

As we reported, Brown’s widow, Tomi Rae said she believes her late husband, who died from heart failure in 2006, actually mysteriously died after telling his team that he wanted to cut back on his workload. She strongly believes Brown’s manager David Cannon – later convicted for raking off money from him – has the real answers to the star’s death.

“I think he could have been murdered. They were feeding him drugs and not paying him. You don’t give somebody drugs when you are looking out for them,” Tomi said at the time.
