UPDATE: Michael Jackson Autopsy Report a Fake
UPDATE: TMZ now reports that the Sun's grisly account of Michael Jackson's autopsy report is a fabrication.
The report notes that Jackson, who died on Thursday at the age of 50 after suffering cardiac arrest, weighed a mere 112 pounds, was bald and was disfigured by numerous scars and bruises.
Describing the singer as "severely emaciated," the report goes on to note that, beneath his wig, only the slightest traces of "peach fuzz" appeared on his scalp. His stomach was completely empty, save for a few partially dissolved pills. Pathologists also discovered a mass of surgical scars on Jackson's body, believed to be the result of extensive plastic surgery.
The autopsy also revealed bruises on Jackson's knees and shins, and cuts on his back, suggesting that he had fallen recently.
"Michael’s family and fans will be horrified when they realize the appalling state he was in," a family source tells the paper. “He was skin and bone, his hair had fallen out and had been eating nothing but pills when he died. Injection marks all over his body and the disfigurement caused by years of plastic surgery show he’d been in terminal decline for years."
