London, July 1 (ANI): The Jackson family were left reeling after a private second autopsy on the singer’s body confirmed the appalling findings of the first one.
The family had demanded their own private autopsy after LA coroners ruled out foul play in the first one.
Leaked autopsy details from the first report suggested that the late King of Pop was a virtual skeleton, barely eating and with only pills in his stomach while his body was riddled with needle wounds and surgery scars at the time of his death.
Jackson’s hips, thighs and shoulders reportedly bore the needle punctures, stemming from alleged injections of narcotic painkillers, given three times a day for years.
A mass of surgery scars was also apparently spotted due to at least 13 cosmetic operations, while investigating the icon’s shock death in Los Angeles on June 25.
And now, the Jackson family’s attorney Brian Oxman has said the results from the second report were consistent.
“The second autopsy is done…Any autopsy report would note a number of unique and significant marks and injuries on the body of Michael Jackson,” British tabloid The Sun quoted him as saying.
“Firstly the four puncture marks on his chest from the needle. Well I’ve seen those marks on his chest – I’ve seen his body – so I know they’re there.
“His weight – we know he was incredibly lean. Regarding baldness, Michael does have a distinctive patch on the side of his head. I know that his brother, who is only six years older, has a similar fuzz from losing his hair and has to dye it.
“Regarding the tablets in his stomach – well we know he was taking a lot of prescription drugs. That hasn’t been denied,” he added. (ANI)
