Atlanta prosecutors have received a trove of new information that alleges to prove legendary entertainer James Brown was murdered back in December 2006. At the time, it was determined that a heart attack was the cause of the 73-year-old singer's death.

In 2017, doctor Marvin Crawford, who signed Brown's death certificate, said that something about the sudden passing seemed off to him.

"He changed too fast," the doctor told CNN. "He was a patient I would never have predicted would have coded. ... But he died that night, and I did raise that question: What went wrong in that room?"

Last year, a woman named Jaques Hollander came forward via CNN with details of her time spent with Brown, including a brutal rape. She also insisted that she had evidence that Brown's death was indeed a murder.

Just this week, Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard Jr. told the network that his team of investigators would conduct interviews and weigh potential evidence before deciding whether to launch a full-scale death investigation.

That evidence includes a storage bin of information presented to the district attorney by Hollander. She claims that Brown's third wife, Adrienne, was also a murder victim.
