Is Michael Jacksonâ€™s body missing? Searches for the answer to that exact question have lit up the net today. Weâ€™ve got the answers, as well as photos and video below.
It all started with the story that Michael Jacksonâ€™s brain would not be buried with his body, and that it was removed prior to the memorial service at the Staples Center. Then came reports that his body was missing from the casket during the service, which were apparently debunked by TMZ.
Now, people canâ€™t seem to wrap their heads around the location of his body, even declaring that Michael Jacksonâ€™s body is missing entirely! Well, the common assumption was that he would be buried at Neverland Ranch, but that turned out to be false.
Some thought that he was actually buried prior to the televised memorial, and that the casket had been brought into the Staples center empty. Other rumors began to circulate that Michael Jacksonâ€™s body had in fact been cremated.
All of the above theories would seem hard to imagine given the extreme security measures that were taken in transporting his body from the private service to the public memorial. Why would they go through all of that if Jacksonâ€™s body was missing from the casket?
Well, ABC News has claimed that they solved the mystery. According to them, Michael Jacksonâ€™s body is not missing; it is actually being held in safe keeping at Forest Lawn Cemetery. They say the next step will be deciding whether or not his final resting place will actually end up being at the Neverland Ranch, or whether it will stay at Forest Lawn.
