Rumors are floating around the blogosphere that a number of websites are in possession of a Michael Jackson autopsy picture. Could it be true that one or more websites will be publishing a Michael Jackson autopsy picture? Is it really possible that a Michael Jackson autopsy photo could have been leaked to the press from the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office? But perhaps the most important question of all is this: Why would people want to see a Michael Jackson autopsy picture?
The news media is still ablaze with reports and programming centering around the untimely death of pop superstar Michael Jackson – otherwise known as the King of Pop. Michael Jackson died of cardiac arrest in Los Angeles on June 25.
There is speculation that Michael Jackson was murdered; there is speculation that wounds on Michael Jackson’s leg reveal that he abused drugs; and now footage of the Pepsi commercial where Michael Jackson’s hair caught on fire is everywhere (commentators are speculating that this incident – which took place back in 1984 – may have kicked off Michael Jackson’s addiction to prescription pain medication).
Thus fingers all over the world are furiously typing the following phrases into search engines: “Michael Jackson autopsy photo,” “Michael Jackson homicide,” “Michael Jackson Legs” and “Michael Jackson hair on fire.”
News about Michael Jackson will likely go on for months. The Los Angeles Coroner’s office will be releasing the results of Michael Jackson’s toxicology results soon, and that is likely to set off new firestorms of controversy (will Michael Jackson’s personal physician, Conrad Murray, be charged with murder?).
As well, a custody battle involving Michael Jackson’s three children (Prince Michael, Paris Katherine and Prince Michael II – also known as Blanket) may be duked out between Michael Jackson’s mother, Katherine, and Debbie Rowe, who is reportedly the biological mother of Michael Jackson’s two older children.
But about the question posed at the beginning of this article? Why would people want to see a Michael Jackson autopsy photo?
I would have to believe that most of Michael Jackson’s most ardent fans would not be interested in seeing their idol’s autopsy photo. They would consider it to be an indignity.
As for those who would not hesitate to look, well, it can only be chalked up to morbid curiosity.
How many people would be interested in looking at a Michael Jackson autopsy photo?
Sadly, too many to count.
