AUGUSTA, Ga. – The Godfather of Soul's body has been moved from a temporary resting place in his home, but his attorney isn't saying where.
James Brown's body was moved Thursday from a guarded, climate-controlled room at his Beech Island, S.C., home where it had been since Dec. 30, said Buddy Dallas, the late entertainer's estate trustee and longtime counsel. Brown died Dec. 25 of heart failure in Atlanta at 73.
Dallas would not say why the body was moved, but said no decision has been made on where Brown's final resting place will be.
Brown's six adult children are planning to put the body in a mausoleum, perhaps turning the singer's home — about 9 miles east of Augusta — into a museum that would include his grave. Family members plan to consult with Elvis Presley's family on how they opened Graceland, Presley's mansion in Memphis, Tenn., which attracts 600,000 visitors each year.
