Joe Jackson, father of Michael Jackson, is reported to suspect foul play in the death of his son:
"Michael was dead before he left the house. I'm suspecting foul play somewhere. He was waving to everybody and telling them he loves them and all the fans at the gate. A few minutes after Michael was out there, he was dead."
Quite why he suspects that is not clear.
Whilst that conspiracy theory may make for some very lurid reporting, that some people will believe, the reality is likely to be far more banal (drug addiction, stress and undernourishment) if reports of the preliminary autopsy findings are anything to go by.
Jackson reportedly weighed 51kg at time of death, and his stomach was empty except for partially-dissolved prescription pills.
His hips, thighs and shoulders were covered in needle marks, the result of narcotic painkillers that he took three times a day.
