MJ's Family Wants Second Autopsy

Funeral arrangements were being made Saturday for the King of Pop after an initial examination by the coroner’s office failed to determine the cause of death of 50-year-old Jackson. Joseph Jackson, Michael’s father, released a statement saying his son’s death was “one of the darkest moments of our lives.” Rumors are swirling that the family—all gathered at the Jackson family home in Los Angeles—are seeking a second, independent autopsy. Toxicology results are expected to take weeks to be released. “Speculation has centered on Jackson's use of prescription drugs and reports that he was injected with Demerol shortly before he went into cardiac arrest,” reports Reuters.
