Michael Jackson Nude Death Photo Shown On Television

In what might possibly be the most shocking moment of the Dr. Conrad Murray manslaughter trial a naked photo of the deceased Michael Jackson was briefly shown on television Tuesday.

The photo which showed a blacked out genital area revealed Michael Jackson lying on his back on an autopsy table in 2009. The singer died at the age of 50.

In a closeup the singer’s arm was shown with remnants of an IV hook-up and medical tape.

The images in question were used by forensic pathologist Christopher Rogers who provided expert testimony. Rogers was responsible for Jackson’s autopsy and for determining that Jackson had died from an overdose of the anesthetic propofol.

According to Rodgers he knows the cause of death because of the way Murray used propofol improperly and because it was “implausible” that Jackson had administered the fatal level within the two minute time frame for which Murray said he stepped away.

Do you think airing the Michael Jackson photo on television was in bad form?
