Label this under Freaking Horrible News. Michael Jackson, who will apparently never ever be allowed to rest in peace, may have his autopsy photos put up online because anything Michael related, even his remains, means big money. Also, some people are just evil.
Prince, Paris, and Blanket have had a lot to deal with thus far and will sadly be forced to continue dealing with crazy people and the legacy that comes along with being the children of the greatest pop star that ever lived. But seriously, this is above and beyond any sort of sense of humanity. The absolute mental devastation it would cause these kids if they stumbled across the pictures on Google can’t even be imagined without my heart breaking.
Now this news comes courtesy of the National Enquirer, so it may not be entirely factual. When it comes to these sort of scum sucking things, I do tend to think they have the insider track.
The images have been described as “graphic,” and are being sought by “Some of the edgier Internet sites run by foreign operators.” They are “attempting to secure the photos through unauthorized release — with talk that the pictures could be worth upward of $5 million!”
“There are genuine fears the pictures could be leaked or that computer hackers could get to them — and the LAPD and DA’s office are taking extreme preventive measures to keep them secure,” says a source.
Authorities have consulted the FBI about transferring the images to an encoded disk which would require multiple verifications before the pictures could be downloaded and viewed. It sounds secure, but is anything in the digital age really that safe?
Michael’s family is distraught and concerned for the kids. “Publishing these awful images would have a frightful and lasting impact on Michael’s children, and that’s why every effort is being made to safeguard the photos.”
Let’s all cross our fingers that these photos are never released.
