Willie "Po' Monkey" Seaberry has passed away. Bolivar County deputies found Seaberry dead in his bed Thursday evening; they believe he died of a heart attack in his sleep. Seaberry opened Po' Monkey's juke joint near Merigold in 1963 while working as a farmer; by the 1990s Po' Monkey's was attracting a mixed crowd of locals as well as college students from Delta State University and blues aficionados in search of "authentic" juke joints. Seaberry was 75 years old.
