|Michael Jackson (1958 – 2009)|
A report from U.K paper The Sun of London is claiming to have the first details of the autopsy of music legend Michael Jackson.
According to the paper Jackson, who died unexpectedly last Thursday (June 25), had lost most of his hair and weighed a mere 112 pounds at the time of his death. With semi-digested pills, and no food, found among his stomach contents.
Needle marks were found all over the Pop star’s body, according to the paper, though his private doctor, Dr. Conrad Murray, has emphatically denied injecting Jackson with any painkiller, as been rumored in the press.
Murray, who had disappeared from Jackson’s home shortly after police and paramedics were called to the scene, told police Jackson had a pulse unconscious in bed Thursday and preformed cardiopulmonary resuscitation in a failed bid revive him.
Police questioned Murray for three hours on Saturday. As for his absence in the hours following Jackson’s death, “He went to a friend’s house on the advice of a previous lawyer to get away from the press crush at the hospital,” says his attorney Matt Alford.
The autopsy also shows evidence of the struggle to save the King of Pop’s life. A number of Jackson’s ribs were broken as CPR was administered. Also noted in the post mortem examination were four puncture wounds near his heart, the result of adrenaline shots that failed to restart his heart.
The Los Angeles coroner’s report doesn’t suggest any foul play, though toxicology results won’t be available for several weeks.
The results of a second autopsy ordered by the Jackson family, who remain suspicious of Dr. Murray, have not yet been made public.
