Jacko’s heartbroken sister La Toya vows to prove star’s death was foul play
From James Desborough, US Editor in Los Angeles, 12/07/2009
MICHAEL Jackson’s heartbroken sister La Toya last night sensationally insisted the King of Pop was MURDERED for his £1 billion fortune.
And the former Playboy model told the News of the World: “I KNOW who did it.”
In an astonishing exclusive interview, La Toya, 53, reveals secret new facts about the 50-year-old superstar’s sudden death, drugs found in his body and a $2million stash of cash and jewels that has gone missing.
She also speaks movingly about Jacko’s final resting place and tells how his children are struggling with their grief. La Toya said: “We don’t think just one person was involved in the murder. It was a conspiracy to get Michael’s money.”
La Toya bombshell
- They got hiim hooked on drugs
- He was lonely and vulnerable
- Didn’t want to perform in London
- I ordered second autopsy on his body
- $2m cash missing from his mansion
Grief-torn La Toya last night dramatically vowed revenge on the people she claims MURDERED her brother Michael.
And she vowed: “I know who did it and I won’t rest until I nail them!”
La Toya’s astonishing revelations come just two days after the chief of Los Angeles police admitted they were investigating Jacko’s death as possible homicide.
In a moving exclusive four-hour interview with the News of the World, grieving La Toya – the closest person to Michael from the whole tight-knit Jackson clan – revealed she and the family are convinced her brother’s apparent drugs overdose was “foul play” by a shadowy group out to get their hands on his £1 billion fortune.
“Michael WAS murdered,” declared La Toya, 53. “And we don’t think just one person was involved. Rather, it was a conspiracy of people. I feel it was all about money. Michael was worth well over a billion in music publishing assets and somebody killed him for that. He was worth more dead than alive.”
As she posed a series of vital questions about 50-year-old Jacko’s sudden death 17 days ago at his rented mansion in Los Angeles, La Toya said the pop icon was:
- FED a series of addictive drugs to keep him submissive and controlled.
- KEPT from his family by manipulative people who blocked their visits.
- WORKED to exhaustion even though he DIDN’T want to do the gruelling string of 50 shows due to start at London’s O2 arena tomorrow.
- ROBBED of TWO MILLION in cash and gems as he lay dying.
Because of her close bond with Michael, La Toya was chosen by the family to sign the death certificate. Now the first step in her battle for justice is underway, with the second, independent, autopsy she ordered.
The official coroner’s report is not due for two weeks but La Toya already knows the results of the family’s own toxicology tests on the body and said: “I think everyone will be surprised when the results come out.
“I can’t discuss that any further because of the ongoing police investigation. But I can say newspaper reports that there was methadone in his body are inacuurate.
“He had many needle marks on his neck and on his arms, and more about those will emerge in the next few weeks. But nothing has changed my mind that this was murder and I won’t give up until I find out what killed my brother.
“A couple of years ago Michael told me he was worried that people were out to get him. He said, ‘They’re gonna kill me for my publishing. They want my catalogues and they’re gonna kill me for these.’
“I knew something terrible was going to happen.”
Brushing her long dark hair back from her face – features that closely resemble her tragic brother’s – soft-spoken La Toya added: “Michael was being inappropriately treated by people who got him hooked on drugs.
“I can’t say who I believe is responsible as I don’t want to jeopardise the police investigation. But not everybody had Michael’s best interests at heart. A month ago I felt Michael was going to die before he did his London concerts.
