Michael Jackson’s Death Certificate Is Released

Now that deceased King of Pop Michael Jackson has been properly honored with an all-star farewell, Los Angeles County has issued the singer’s Certificate of Death, offering some inklings of what’s to become—or not become—of Jackson’s body next.

As originally reported by TMZ, the certificate (read it here) lists Jackson’s occupation as “Singer” and his type of business as “Entertainment.” No surprises there.

The document also lists Jackson’s immediate cause of death as “deferred”—presumably, until the coroner’s office can complete its investigation—and lists the Forest Lawn Memorial-Parks & Mortuaries, where the Jackson family held a private ceremony on Tuesday morning, as a “temporary” disposition for the singer’s body.

Apparently, nearly two weeks after his death, the family is still sorting out its differences to determine Jack-O’s final resting place.
