Mystery of ‘Elvis’ actor and singer Shonka Dukureh, death.

“Elvis” actor Shonka Dukureh was found dead at the age of 44, Thursday in the Nashville, Tennessee, apartment she shared with her two young children, police said

Dukureh, a blues singer, played Big Mama Thornton in the blockbuster biopic about Elvis Presley's rise to stardom released last month.

No foul play is “evident” in her death, police said. Her death is unclassified pending autopsy results from the medical examiner’s office. 

One of her children found her unresponsive in the bedroom of her Kothe Way apartment and ran to a neighbor's apartment for help, according to the Metro Nashville Police Department.
