imageA ?Super Bad? Internet rumor is playing ?I Got You? with the British tabloids, which claimed yesterday that the corpse of soul superstar James Brown was stolen, but South Carolina cops and a funeral director say the papers are ?Talking Loud and Saying Nothing.?

?I have not heard that,? said the Aiken County Sheriff?s Office, which has jurisdiction over the area where Brown was laid to rest. ?I would expect we would have knowledge of such a thing.?

Charles Reid of C.A. Reid Funeral Home, who managed the 2006 burial of the Godfather of Soul in a mausoleum at his daughter?s home, said the rumor is false.

James Brown?s daughter LaRhonda Pettit reportedly said his body was missing on the eve of an autopsy meant to prove he was poisoned. The story got picked up and traveled around the world before it landed back in South Carolina, where Reid laid it to rest.
