Report: La Toya Jackson Says She Knows Who Murdered Michael
In an astonishing turn of events for the investigation into Michael Jackson’s death, Jackson’s sister, La Toya Jackson, claims that her brother was the victim of a conspiracy to commit murder—and she knows who the culprits are.
“I know who did it and I won’t rest until I nail them!” Jackson vows, according to News of the World.
According to La Toya, the King of Pop was done in by a shadowy cabal intent on laying their hands on Jackson’s sizable fortune—estimated by some to be $200 million after debts.
“Michael WAS murdered,” asserts the 53-year-old. “And we don’t think just one person was involved. Rather, it was a conspiracy of people. I feel it was all about money. Michael was worth well over a billion in music publishing assets and somebody killed him for that. He was worth more dead than alive.”
Jackson continues, “A couple of years ago Michael told me he was worried that people were out to get him. He said, ‘They’re gonna kill me for my publishing. They want my catalogues and they’re gonna kill me for these.’ I knew something terrible was going to happen.”
La Toya further alleges that millions in cash and jewelry went missing from Jackson’s Holmby Hills mansion on the day of his death late last month.
“Michael always had cash in his homes, usually around $2 million which he used to pay out on things. People said he wasn’t wealthy, but Michael always had money with him,” Jackson recalls. “When I went to the house later that day there was NO cash or jewelery. So many people had been through that house before I got there. Someone went in there and did a good job. It was very strange.”
Though she says she knows who’s responsible for her brother’s death, Jackson says she’s keeping mum—for the time being, anyway.
“I can’t say who I believe is responsible as I don’t want to jeopardize the police investigation,” says La Toya. “But not everybody had Michael’s best interests at heart. A month ago I felt Michael was going to die before he did his London concerts…I felt it would be foul play. I felt he’d never make the show.”
