Autopsy: Michael Jackson's Cause Of Death?

By Sassy Smith |


Michael Jackson, the “King of Pop,” died suddenly on Thursday, June 25, and the world wants to know, what killed the 50-year-old pop icon?

Jackson went into “cardiac arrest” but what caused his heart to stop?

From the AP:

An autopsy was planned for Friday, though results were not likely to be final until toxicology tests could be completed, a process that could take several days and maybe weeks. However, if a cause can be determined by the autopsy, the results will be announced, said Los Angeles County Coroner Investigator Jerry McKibben.

Police said they were investigating, standard procedure in high-profile cases.

Jackson died at UCLA Medical Center after being stricken at his rented home in the posh Los Angeles neighborhood of Holmby Hills. Paramedics tried to resuscitate him at his home for nearly three-quarters of an hour, then rushed him to the hospital, where doctors continued to work on him.

“It is believed he suffered cardiac arrest in his home. However, the cause of his death is unknown until results of the autopsy are known,” his brother Jermaine said.

Cardiac arrest is an abnormal heart rhythm that stops the heart from pumping blood to the body. It can occur after a heart attack or be caused by other heart problems.

TMZ is reporting that Jackson family members feared Michael may have died from a morphine injection:

Members of Michael Jackson’s family told us the singer was given a “heavy dose of morphine” prior to his death, and family members were alarmed.

We’re told Joe Jackson recently wanted to put Michael in a rehab facility in Palmdale, California for what he considered an “addiction” to morphine and prescription drugs.

Family members say they felt he was unable to perform for his upcoming concerts because of his drug use.

I’m sure Jackson’s family want answers because the not knowing is really difficult.  At least if they have answers, they can begin their grieving process and have some measure of peace.

Michael’s three children are currently with his mom Katherine.

  8. The Truth says:

    Of all the people in this world Michael Joseph Jackson (8-/29/58 – 6/ 25/09) shouldn’t have any enemies. But, he did and this is what caused his financial failure and his death. His death was not of natural causes. The same organization that killed Anna Nicole Smith killed Michael. They will say it was due to drugs as they said in her case. Michael displayed the same symptoms as Nicole, persistent insomnia, weakness, a form of incoherentness, and off-balance. Just watching them in the media revealed this. They were targeted by a well-known organization ( I believe this site belongs to this organization. They have been after Michael since 1990. My belief of Michael being a target and his death was because of this, was confirmed after reading these words of Michael, “One side of my body is hot, it’s hot, and one side of my body is cold. It’s very cold.” In this same report I read of his insomnia problem. I personally have experienced these same problems. They are caused by too much exposure to electromagnet forces or radio waves (micro waves). Continuous exposure will cause our health (heart) to deteriorate. I’m a target too and have found that this is one of the methods this organization use on targets. There are no evidences from it use and the haters enjoy torturing the victim. I have known for sometime they have been sending harmful radio waves over power lines that were causing my problem. By the way I have observed one city block being activated only, lead me to the concluded that the circuits to do this is in the gray Cans (transformers) seen on top of telephone poles. From my knowledge of electronic those Cans should contain 2 coils of wire, around an iron core, and filled with oil. If a Can was cut open and revealed a circuit board embedded, this is what killed. Since his death the transformer may have been removed. Still, they will be one wherever he has lived that is controlled. If you are a target often, you will have your own transformer coming to your dwelling so they can play with your life at will. The true I believe they have xformers coming to everyone’s dwelling.
    This is what can be experienced when exposed; hot flashes, warm or hot on parts of the body, sting like sensation, irritated sensation, headaches, certain body parts aching, hot on a cool day, aching around base of teeth, fingers locking, weakness, depression, sickly, off-balance, heart irregular beating or fast, can’t sleep, sleep but wakes up with heart beating fast and breathing hard. If you really wants know what is going on, you’ll download this PDF report: . It will reveal the other ways they are killing us.
    By the way this was also the cause of James Brown death. You may be a target, just look around and see who is following you, especially when going on the road. Here is a list of people that I believe is a target: Hershey Walker (NFL), Linda Ronstadt , The Dixie Chicks, Whitney Houston, Britney Spears, MC Hammer, anyone having to do with the making of National Treasure II, Patrick Swayze, Michael J. Fox, Mohamed Ali, and many others or anyone that possesses the qualities of those on this list. Oh, yeah, O.J. Simpson is a victim too. This organization did the killing and try to frame him for it. When Johnny C. got him free, they killed him with micro waves technology. What they have OJ in for now can be seen as a setup for miles. Here is a list of people this organization has killed: Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy, Malcolm X , Martin Luther King, Jr., James Brown, Anna Nicole Smith, Isaac Lee Hayes, Jr., Bernie Mac, and now Michael Jackson. Of course there are others I cannot think of names. If you look closely, you will find the similarities that caused this organization to kill them. One of Michael qualities giving, he donated and raised millions of dollars for beneficial causes through his foundations, support of 39 charities and he could dance. Haters don’t like this. Whitney has done the same thing with charities. Those who are up there, but haven’t given, are haters. MC Hammer gave too much, can’t nobody touch that!

    Some of us may experience stomach virus like sensations in the abdominal.

    Some of us may experience stomach virus like sensations in the abdominal from being exposed to electromagnet forces too long.

  11. Dr BLT says:

    All the more tragic, but the music world will continue to pay tribute to Michael Jackson through songs like this country remake of Billie Jean.

    Press Release

    The buzz keeps buzzing and the anticipation continues to grow. Dr BLT’s country remake of the Michael Jackson song will be released August 8, 2009.

    Who would have thought this would work as a country song? Michael Jackson’s Billie Jean? Dr BLT discovered that it would a couple of days after Michael Jackson passed away, as he was sitting in front of a local Starbucks in Bakersfield, California, strumming his guitar to a country rhythm.

    After running the idea by Big House frontman, Monty Byrom, and having Monty sing it back to him, he was even more convinced. So he’s taking it to the studio with rising Bakersfield country artist, Penny Marie. Here’s a sample
