Michael Jackson Healthy at Time of Death, Autopsy Results Show
Published Oct 01, 2009As expected, the plot is thickening regarding the passing of Michael Jackson. The King of Pop, who passed away on June 25, was thought to have been in very poor health when he died but according to a recent coroner's report, that wasn't the case.
A copy of the report obtained by the Associated Press suggests that Jackson was somewhat healthy at the time of his death. While many reported him as weighing 105 pounds, he was actually an almost-normal 136 pounds.
The report goes on to explain that while Jackson did have some inflammation in his lungs, it wasn't enough to contribute to his death. All of his other organs were in normal condition, and his other problems, like arthritis and minor plaque build-up in his arteries, weren't enough to contribute to his death.
The complete results of the report have yet to be released but it was revealed that the results will likely conclude Jackson died of "acute propofol intoxication." As such, the building lawsuit against Jackson's doctor, Conrad Murray, will take a central role in closing the book on Jackson's passing.
