The Sun published a harrowing description of the state of Michael Jackson’s body as detailed by the LA Coroner’s Office- but it seems like the report may have been a hoax.
The article hints at shocking but not unexpected tale of the ravages of multiple plastic surgeries (including a partially missing nose), needle marks and drug abuse, and confirmation of long suspected anorexia- all in their signature ARBITRARY abuse of the CAPS LOCK KEY:
PLUNGED to a “severely emaciated” 8st 1oz. It is understood anorexic Jackson had been eating just one meagre meal a day. Pathologists found his stomach empty aside from partially-dissolved pills he took before the painkiller injection which stopped his heart. Samples were sent for toxicology tests.
LOST virtually all his hair. The pop pin-up was wearing a wig when he died and pathologists said little more than “peach fuzz” covered his scalp. A scarred section of skin above his left ear was entirely bald — apparently the result of a 1984 accident when his hair caught fire as he filmed an ad for Pepsi.
SUFFERED several broken ribs as frantic rescuers pumped his chest after he collapsed in cardiac arrest. Four injection sites were found above or near to Jacko’s heart. All appeared to result from attempts to pump adrenaline directly into the organ in a failed bit [sic] to restart it. Three of the injections had penetrated the heart wall — causing damage — but a fourth missed and hit one of the 50-year-old star’s ribs.
TMZ is now reporting it was all “completely false.” Even the CUTS. And BRUISING. In a statement, the LA Coroner said:
“The report that is being published did not come from this office. I don’t know where the information came from, or who that information came from. It is not accurate. Some of it is totally false.”
TMZ is also stating that Michael Jackson’s likely cause of death will be a drug overdose, citing “sources.” This is unlikely to be confirmed completely until the final toxicology results come back.
