Jackson was bruised, bald, gaunt: Autopsy Leaked Report Shows Years Of Abuse On Singer’s Body

A “severely emaciated” Michael Jackson weighed just over 51kg and was disfigured and virtually bald after years of physical abuse,according to leaked results from an official autopsy.
Details from the post-mortem carried out on Friday by Los Angeles County’s Chief Medical Examiner were carried on Monday in The Sun, which reported how the star’s face was a mass of scars from 13 cosmetic operations. The Sun said that the bridge of Jackson’s nose had disappeared and the right side had caved in. It also reported unexplained bruises on his knees and shins and bruising to his back suggesting a recent fall.
The newspaper said that the only thing pathologists found in the anorexic star’s stomach were partially-dissolved pills, which were removed for toxicology tests.
The experts also found that several of Jackson’s ribs had been broke as paramedics tried to revive the 50-year-old singer after he collapsed at his rented mansion in Belair on Thursday. Four injection wounds were found above or near to Jackson’s heart. All appeared to have resulted from attempts to pump adrenaline directly into the organ in a failed bid to restart it.
The Sun said the pop star was wearing a wig when he died and pathologists said that a little more than “peach fuzz” covered his scalp. A scarred section of skin found above his left ear was entirely bald which is said to be the result of a 1984 accident when his hair caught fire while shooting an ad for Pepsi.
A source close to the Jackson entourage told the newspaper: “He was skin and bone, his hair had fallen out and he had been eating nothing but pills when he died. Injection marks all over his body and the disfigurement caused by years of plastic surgery show he’d been in terminal decline for years.”
The autopsy leaks emerged as Jackson’s family launched a legal bid to secure custody of the superstar’s children on Monday. In its ruling, the LA Superior Court approved Jackson’s mother’s request for temporary guardianship of his children—Prince Michael, 12, Paris, 11, and Prince Michael II, 7—but turned down her request to serve as the temporary guardian of the children’s estate.
Meanwhile, the doctor who cared for the stricken Jackson told investigators that the singer was unconscious but had a faint pulse when he reached him. The doctor, Conrad Murray, said he tried to resuscitate Jackson and ordered a member of the singer’s staff to call the police. AGENCIES
