More Support

Michael Jackson received support from Stevie Wonder yesterday.

Stevie Wonder criticised Eminem for ridiculing Jackson in his video "Lose It".

Eminem refers to Jackson's plastic surgery, and the child molestation charges faced by Jackson.

Stevie said:

"Kicking someone when he's down is not a good thing....I was disappointed that he (Eminem) would let himself go to such a level..."

For some, the innocence or guilt of Michael Jackson is merely a matter of faith.

Deborah Dannelly, the president of the Michael Jackson fan club, is reported to have said:

"Obviously I believe that he's innocent and the experience I've had with him and the times I've been with him...This isn't the man I know at all..."

Ray Chandler, the uncle of the boy who accused Michael Jackson of molestation in 1994, gave an interview to Good Morning America.

He said that the boy's parents did not go forward with a criminal case because they felt threatened and were denied a request to join a witness protection program.


"They only refused because they requested protection. They wanted to be put in witness protection program, and that request was refused."

Prosecutors did not pursue charges against Michael Jackson then, after they said the alleged victim refused to testify. The boy and his family received a reported $20M settlement from Jackson.

Chandler said that the family decided not to pursue a criminal case against Jackson, because of the multiple death threats received from his fans.


"Jackson fans had flown in from Europe to Los Angeles and had come to the father's office, had phoned in bomb threats as late as April 1994, four months after it [the case] was settled.."

"..The father was forced to leave his dental practice because his staff and his partner would no longer allow him in there because fans were coming to the office. It was a very serious threat

Two Searches and a Swab

Michael Jackson's Neverland ranch was searched for two days, Friday and Saturday, after which a swab of saliva was taken from his mouth.

Santa Barbara County sheriff's officials have refused to discuss the visits, except to issue a statement saying they are "part of an ongoing criminal investigation".
