By: Celebuzz / July 22, 2009

A second autopsy commissioned by the family of deceased King of Pop Michael Jackson has confirmed the results of the initial autopsy, E! Online reports.

The second examination, conducted by private pathologists on June 27—just two days after Jackson’s death—revealed needle marks on Jackson’s body and potentially lethal traces of the anesthetic Propofol in his system, echoing the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office findings.

Shortly after his death, Jackson’s former nurse, Cherilyn Lee, revealed that the singer had begged her to procure Propofol for him and, while she claims to have tried to dissuade him, investigators found the drug in Jackson’s Holmby Hills mansion after his death.
