Michael Jackson Autopsy Shockers
This week, the final coroner’s report came out detailing Michael Jackson’s death, following the involuntary manslaughter charge against his doctor Conrad Murray. The conclusive cause of death was acute propofol intoxication, which Murray had supplied to Jackson in lethal amounts for insomnia.
New details from the coroner reveal other oddities in Jackson’s appearance and health. The singer weighed just 136 pounds at his time of death and apparently did suffer from a skin pigment disorder called vitiligio. His flowing hair was not natural: his thin, curly real hair was connected to a wig and further supplemented by a “dark skin discoloration resembling tattoo” on the front of his head to cover a receding hairline. The King of Pop also wore a bandaid on the tip of his nose and had permanently tattooed his eyebrows and lips.
A number of medical supplies were found in his home (needles, oxygen tank, catheters) but none of those required to administer propofol.
Jackson was pictured shopping with his three kids in West Hollywood before his death in April. Prince and Paris gave a tribute to their late father at the Jan. 31 Grammy Awards.
