Michael Jackson autopsy completed

Michael JacksonMichael Jackson’s autopsy has been completed, but the L.A. County Coroner announced that more testing, in the form of toxicology and other tests, will be needed before an official cause of death can be determined. The final result will be ready in four to six weeks. He was able to say that there was no trauma to Michael’s body and “no indication of foul play” — but added that Jackson had been taking “some prescription medications.”  The LAPD confirmed that Jackson’s personal physician, cardiac doctor Dr. Conrad Murray, gave Jackson an injection of the pain killer Demerol an hour before he died. Dr. Murray’s car has been impounded by police in the hope that it contains evidence. Please check out our Michael Jackson tribute by clicking here.

    Apparently there was another autopsy completed yesterday, at the families request.

    Supposedly, the results say he had needlemarks all over his body (shoulders, hips, etc) and 4 near his heart from adrenaline to try to revive him; right side of his nose caved in; he was skin & bones only eating one small meal a day; there was no food at all in his stomach contents, only what was left of some prescription pills; bruised knees and shins; bruising on his chest and a couple broken ribs from the CPR…..did I say, “supposedly”?

    I wish that all people would leave this poor boy alone. He has had a intolerable life and sent to fame before he knew what life was all about. Now He is with God and If you think he has done wrong God will look after him.All he wanted to do was be loved and give love. What is wrong with that. Michael blessed be.

    Gale, you don’t know where he is at, if you want to go all out on this and the “afterlife”. Who knows.
    It’s tiring, because no matter what the results say, there will always be suspicions. He was not healthy by any means, and there will possibly be a few things they’ll find that could be attributed to his passing. Honestly, I don’t ever recall hearing this, but was he anorexic? He certainly could’ve been, he looked it, and that is not good for the heart, neither is prescription drugs, or depression (the way he was brought up). we’ll probably never know the full truth.

    Nancy, are you serious? I hadn’t heard any of that, but the needlemarks wouldn’t surprise me, I heard that he was getting at least one shot of demerol a day. I also heard that his eating habits hadn’t changed in the last couple years, apparently he was always an extremely small eater. With all the medications, very little food, extreme exercise with practicing 6 hours per day, his death (even though it was a shock) is really no surprise, the human heart can only take so much.

    Well that’s just what I’ve heard through media, Tributegirl. Also that he was wearing a wig and had no hair underneath, only a little peach fuzz and yes, the injection marks were supposedly pain killers and his body in decline for several years now.

  7. tributegirl • July 1, 2009 @ 11:33 AM

    Well, the hair thing is no surprise either, considering the fire.

  8. Nancy • July 1, 2009 @ 1:32 PM

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!! Oh yes, the lovely fire on the set of the Coca Cola commercial!! 😀

  9. tributegirl • July 1, 2009 @ 2:29 PM

    Pepsi, I thought it was awful! That must have been pretty painful, not to mention scary!

  10. Nancy • July 1, 2009 @ 6:25 PM

    Oh, was it Pepsi? I wasn’t sure, hahaha. I thought it was quite funny though, LOL.

  11. tributegirl • July 1, 2009 @ 7:03 PM

    Ug, I didn’t find it funny at all, I found it horrifying actually. I’m pretty sure it was Pepsi, I think he endorsed Pepsi for a long time.

  12. lily • July 1, 2009 @ 7:52 PM

    I don’t get it, Nancy. What was funny about it?

  13. Nancy • July 2, 2009 @ 12:20 PM

    Lily, I never saw any footage of what happened at the time, I had just heard that his hair caught on fire and that is what I found funny. I didn’t realize then that it had been so serious.

  14. tributegirl • July 2, 2009 @ 4:35 PM

    Oh, ok, I thought you were laughing at some really serious pain and suffering! Yeah, it was bad, I saw the footage, it’s no wonder his hair was never able to grow back, I imagine there was probably a lot of scar tissue on his head.

  15. Nancy • July 2, 2009 @ 5:47 PM

    No, I’m “bad” but I’m not that bad. I saw a girl in my chemistry class a few years back get her hair blown off with a bunsen burner. She wasn’t hurt though and everyone laughed their heads off because she was one of those girls who was constantly in the bathroom with a can of hairspray fixing her hair.

  16. Carol • July 2, 2009 @ 9:57 PM

    I remember that Nance, it was pepsi, and after that happened, some of his fans actually lit their hair on fire in “support” of him. He did a few Pepsi commercials back then. I don’t think he was burned bad, but his hair was cynged (not sure how to spell that).

  17. lily • July 3, 2009 @ 6:31 AM

    I’ve heard that there’s no hospital job worse then the burn unit. And I remember a few girls burning their hair by mistake in the chem lab…what I mainly remember is the awful smell. (and Nancy I know you are not that bad cause you sound like a great mom)
    Hey, I’m getting bored of all the MJ stories. Tribute needs an article on the Bachelorette lol.

  18. tributegirl • July 3, 2009 @ 9:49 AM

    Noooo, not the Bachelorette! LOL!
    Yeah, I’ve seen people in science class lose their hair & eyebrows, but his scalp was burned pretty bad.
    lily, I don’t think I could work in the burn unit, but I am so thankful for the people who can and do.

  19. lily • July 3, 2009 @ 12:03 PM

    so true tg, their saints.
    and yeah, I get your point about the Bachelorette being pretty awful but man, I am hooked…its keeping me going till Big Brother starts again (my guilty pleasures LOL!)

  20. tributegirl • July 3, 2009 @ 12:27 PM

    LOL, I just can’t get into either of those two shows! I love Survivor though, but rarely have any time to watch tv, so I usually miss it.

  21. Nancy • July 3, 2009 @ 9:24 PM

    YES LILY! Big Brother starts on July 9th. Can’t wait! And the 2 hour season finale of Harper’s Island just so happens to be the same night. Thank goodness for technology…or I’d have to choose! 😀

  22. lily • July 4, 2009 @ 6:16 AM

    Thank goodness I don’t watch Harper’s Island or I’d have to figure out how to work the DVD player (showing my age for sure LOL). Can’t wait for July 9th Nancy!!! Hope they have a few people I’ll love to hate!

  23. Nancy • July 4, 2009 @ 8:10 PM

    Me too! Wow! July has been and will be a very busy and exciting month! What with Big Brother and the season finale of Harper’s Island, my son’s birthday and my mom’s birthday and I purchased a new car! Hopefully I can pick it up from the dealership on Monday.
