The definition of health is in the eye of the beholder. The Associated Press, somehow, has obtained a copy of Michael Jackson’s autopsy report:
Michael Jackson’s arms were covered with punctures, his face and neck were scarred and he had tattooed eyebrows and lips, but he wasn’t the sickly skeleton of a man portrayed by tabloids, according to his autopsy report obtained by The Associated Press.
In fact, the Los Angeles County coroner’s report shows Jackson was a fairly healthy 50-year-old before he died of an overdose.
Punctured arms, scarred face, tattoos on the lips?
