James Brown’s death to be reexamined by Atlanta prosecutor

A woman named Jacque Hollander contacted Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard's office to request a meeting, claiming Brown's death was caused by another person, according to the prosecutor's spokesman Chris Hopper. She also revealed how she obtained possession of the bin the paperwork was stored inside.

Brown, one of the nation's most prominent entertainers, died at 73 at a hospital in Atlanta on December 25, 2006.

As we told you, in a 2017 CNN interview Crawford did raise questions about Brown's death because the doctor reportedly wondered if James' heart attack was triggered by a toxic substance or an OD. In 2019, however, CNN published an extensive investigative series in which Hollander and a dozen others who knew Brown - including his manager, his son Daryl, Brown's widow Tomi Rae Hynie, and the doctor who signed Brown's death certificate - raised suspicions about the musician's death and called for an autopsy, a criminal investigation, or both.

CNN's initial investigation was conducted over two years and involved over 140 interviews.
