Michael Jackson Autopsy Photos Real or Fake?

Rumors are circulating that someone out there has illegally obtained Michael Jackson autopsy photos taken while his body was at the L.A. Coroner’s Office. The person supposedly holding information about the alleged photos also reportedly once helped a journalist track down Princess Diana death scene photos after she died in a horrific car crash.


According to Gerald Posner at the Daily Beast, he received a phone call last week from someone claiming to have knowledge of an illegally obtained Michael Jackson autopsy photo. This is, allegedly, the same source that once helped Posner track down rumored photos from Princess’ Diana’s fatal car accident. Those photos turned out to be real.

As for the alleged Michael Jackson autopsy photos, the verdict is still out whether they exist or not. Posner attempted to track them down, but ran into a wall when the restaurant owner who supposedly has them broke off contact with him.

If such a photo does exist, it would likely garner $1 million or more for publishing rights. If anyone was sleazy enough to publish it. Then again, CBS’s 48 Hours did eventually air some of the Princess Diana death photos. So if the photo is out there, more than likely we’ll see it eventually – whether we want to or not.
