Information from the Michael Jackson coroner’s report has been released and it sheds a not-so-new light on the wacky guy that anointed himself The King of Pop. You can download the entire report in PDF format from Aprilroad.com to read along but be warned that it may destroy any thoughts you had about his thick head of hair. That’s because Michael was bald.
Yup, it states on the report that the King was suffering from male pattern baldness and also had a burn scar on the back of his head from the Pepsi Incident which added to his follicle woes. The report states “There is frontal balding and the hair can be described as short and tightly curled.” There are a few other interesting revelations in the report such as:
- Michael had two catheters in his body, one in his thigh and the other in his neck. These were used by his doctor to administer the drugs that killed him.
- He did indeed suffer from vitiliago which would explain his black to white conversion over the years. He was touching up his skin with makeup but he was actually quite blotchy in areas.
- He had an enlarged prostate, which isn’t uncommon in men of his age.
- The coroner found a number of polyps in his colon which were benign. Whew! That was close!
- He had lidocaine and propofol in his stomach which was administered by his doctor to help him sleep. And sleep he did…permanently.
- He still had adhesive tape stuck to his head to attach his wig. Kinda pathetic, huh?
- His sternum and right fourth and fifth ribs were fractured, probably due to his idiot doctor performing CPR while Michael was lying in his bed. Any bozo knows that CPR isn’t effective unless the patient is lying on a hard surface to ensure the compressions are forcing blood through the heart.
- Michael had makeup tattoos to simulate eyebrows and pink lips. I suppose that’s what gave him his youthful glow.
- There were 17 photos taken at the hospital, 13 at the scene of his death and 61 taken before and during autopsy. I wonder how long until they’re leaked although I’m not sure I’m ready for a bald Michael Jackson. Talk to me in five years.
Interestingly, page 21 of the report states that The manner of death is homicide based on the following:
- Circumstances indicate that propofol and the bensodiazepines were administered by another.
- The propofol was administered in a non-hospital setting without any appropriate medical indication.
- The standard of care for administering propofol was not met (see anesthesiology consultation). Recommended equipment for patient monitoring, precision dosing, and resuscitation was not present.
- The circumstances do not support self-administration of propofol.
This doesn’t bode well for Michael’s personal physician, Dr Conrad Murray who pleaded not-guilty to manslaughter charges, however it may be tough to convict him as some think it’s simply malpractice or negligence. Let’s all hold our collective breaths as we wait for the verdict. Or we can just ignore it and hope it goes away.
