One of the funeral programs contained personal messages from Michael’s brother Jermaine and sister La Toya:

“Michael, I always think about the time when you and I were in our bedroom in Indiana and it was snowing outside, we had our faces pressed against the window singing x-mas songs. It was the innocence and joy that made us sing as the snow was falling,” Jermaine writes.

“Your dreams were so incredible that it made the world a much happier place to live, and the world wouldn’t let you rest because they demanded your dreams to transport them to another place. You’ve done your work here Michael, you’ve entertained us for decades and there’s nothing else that you can prove or accomplish here on earth. You taught us how to laugh, how to love, and how to believe,” La Toya writes.

Michael Jackson’s Death Ruled A Homicide

mjThe LA coroner’s office has ruled Michael Jackson‘s death as a homicide citing “lethal levels” of an anesthetic.

Conrad Murray, one of Jackson’s many doctors, told police he had been treating the singer for insomnia for six weeks and had been administering the drug propofol.

Murray says he had feared Jackson was forming an addiciton to the anesthetic and had begun lowering the dosage and administering a mixture of the sedatives lorazepam and midazolam. Yet on the night Jackson died, Murray had relented to the singer’s requests for the drug and finally gave him 25 milligrams of propofol.

In addition to continuing the investigation into Dr. Murray, authorities have also subpoenaed the medical records of Dr. Arnold Klein, Dr. Allan Metzger, Dr. David Adams, Dr. David Slavitt, who conducted the independent medical examination of Jackson for Anschutz Entertainment Group, Dr. Randy Rosen and nurse practitioner Cherilyn Lee and Dr. Mark Tadrissi, who stored medical records with Adams.

Ancient Egyptian Statue Bears Eerie Resemblance To Michael Jackson


Michael Jackson not only lives on in song but apparently his image is living on in the statue of an ancient Egyptian bust at The Field Museum in Chicago.

An eerie resemblance between the King of Pop and the statue of an anonymous Egyptian has people flocking to the museum.

“The idea that people are coming in specifically to see if they can recognize Michael Jackson is a little disturbing to me, but … if that’s what gets people interested in Egypt, interested that in 1500 B.C. people were carving these lovely faces in limestone, that’s OK with me, too,” said Jim Phillips, the museum’s curator of the Near East and North Africa.

The statue, dating back to between 1550 and 1050 B.C., has been on display as part of the museum’s Ancient Egypt exhibit since 1988. However, the MJ connectionwasn’t brought to the attention of the general public until last week by newspaper columnist Michael Sneed of the Chicago Sun-Times.
