Michael Jackson’s autopsy results should clear cause of death
The exact circumstances surrounding Michael Jackson’s death continue to remain unclear. The King of Pop reportedly suffered from cardiac arrest at his home yesterday. He was apparently not breathing when paramedics arrived at his home and performed CPR.
After Michael’s death, L.A. County Coroner’s office performed an autopsy to help them determine Mr. Jackson’s cause of death. The autopsy was expected to take several hours, but the exact cause of death may not be determined for weeks. Getting toxicology results could take from 6 to 8 weeks, the Los Angeles County assistant chief coroner Lt. Ed Winter told reporters.
L.A. Police is currently focusing on the investigation of the singer’s death. Also yesterday, a car belonging to Michael’s personal physician was towed and impounded from Mr. Jackson’s home. Authorities said that the car may contain “medications pertinent to the investigation” into Jackson’s death.
It is believed that the doctor gave Michael a dose of Demerol – a painkiller similar to morphine – before he suffered a cardiac arrest.
