Michael Jackson Burial Mystery

7/7/2009 5:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael JacksonWe've learned Michael Jackson's body will not be going back to Forest Lawn.

The body will go somewhere else pending final burial -- we don't know where that is. If a casket goes to Forest Lawn, it's a decoy.

We've learned the death certificate lists Forest Lawn as the responsible mortuary because the body was embalmed there -- but the rest is being kept secret.

Michael never wanted to return to Neverland. He was in the process with a partner getting the property ready to sell. It as getting it's original name back, Sycamore Ranch. I stand behind my above post. He should have a big memorial where he is buried deep so he may rest in peace and a room should be provided where fans and family can come and pay their respects. Some place with easy access. Some place befitting the King of Pop. Where would he want to be buried? Neverland? NO!!! LA was his home and that is where his family is. Some place there perhaps a cematary section where all the Jacksons can eventually be laid to rest as their time comes. What do you think?

Please bury Michael beside his Grandfather John in Alabama where the "run down " Grandparents place is .How private and a fitting place for him to be PRIVATE AND SECRET

My best guess...Michael's body is back at the morgue where the autopsy was performed. Appropriate storage facilities, safe and out of the way of the media.
My money is also on MJ's body eventually returning to Neverland. There is enough money in that estate the family can keep the litigation going until those who want to see it happen get what they want. (Perhaps following the death of Catherine Jackson who seems to be the one who opposes it the most.

Redemption: The Truth Behind the Michael Jackson Child Molestation Allegation is the book that proves Michael Jackson was framed in 1993. Geraldine Hughes worked for the attorney of the accuser's father and witnessed an elaborate extortion scheme, launched as child molestaton when MJ refused to pay their requested $20 million dollar movie deal. In loving memory of Michael Jackson, his family and children, help me clear Michael Jackson's name. Get your copy on and spread the word.

Please tell me why the world could say bye bye to James Brown ( beautiful burial by the way) and MJ`s body is hidden away Is it not customary to be able to say "farewell" to a loved one. Did we really torment him while he was a life? Why did he not just stop being in entertainment if it was SO TERRIBLE?
So now that his family in gathering in the limelight, do they also need Demorol? What is all this about? Micheal used the press and the press used him. I thought what counted was to be in the "talks" no matter what. MJ was good business and he profited from it just as well! Give and take right? Well somethings hurts, yeah GUYS it is part of life. Somethings people say about me hurts me what! Some also say good things about me too! I wish we could see HIM for the last time, like James Brown, there is no reason to be ashamed or is there? Well is it the way it is!!!!

Please keep your bad comments to your self. And respect Michael Jackson for the talented man that he was. And if anyone of you in this world has no fault then you cast the first stone.
