Delay in Jackson Case -- The Ghost of OJ

11/15/2009 10:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson's homicide investigation is taking longer than expected because -- as one law enforcement source connected with the case said -- "We've had bad luck with big cases like OJ in the past, and we don't want to repeat those mistakes."

Michael Jackson OJ Simpson

The source also pointed to the Robert Blake case, which some experts believe was also botched. But the source added, "There is not a problem with the case. Time is on our side. We want to do this right." The L.A. County D.A.'s office and the LAPD are working as a unit to "anticipate defense strategies and prepare for them." The D.A.'s office is actively involved, requesting lots of info from the LAPD.

One of the issues: authorities have keyed in on Applied Pharmacy in Las Vegas -- they want to make sure there are no other pharmacies that sent the Propofol in question to Dr. Conrad Murray.

Another issue: authorities have gone back to their medical experts for more input, as "strategies have changed" in a case they call "very complicated."

As for when the investigation will wrap: now authorities are saying they'd like to end it "before the Christmas holidays".... but that could get pushed to January.

Something I find strange, and that I don't recall anyone addressing is TMZ stating that the autopsy showed abrasions and lacerations to Michaels legs and back. Where did these come from. Has anyone addressed this and I just overlooked it?

I can't believe the comments that people leave they are so insulting for the human race. Excuse me but how do we know that anything that was ever said about MJ is true ? Were you there are you a close friend give up and go and make sure that you are being perfection before you insilt others.Just leave him alone .

Wanna be startin' something...Part 2
#1171. Andrew Rose insisting footage of the Thriller icon belting out Earth Song is fake. He says the performance vocal has been lifted from a demo available on YouTube.com, adding: "Throughout the film sudden changes in vocal timbre suggest the dropping in of older recordings which may have required significant digital manipulation to fit the new live backing." And now bosses at Sony Pictures, who produced the picture, admit they were forced to use old Jackson performances to aid the sound quality of the footage.
Big deal! Everyone knows most musical films are pre-recorded--you don't just sing while they film. In the case of TII, the filming wasn't intended for theatrical release so of course the quality wasn't good enough. BTW--I think it's ludicrous to point out how great Michael sounded on "Earth Song" when in mind, that was only a strong vocal moment in the beginning when he was singing the verses--it was beautiful, the best I've heard him on that song including the CD, but whne it got to the drive ad-libs for "What about us?, he went completely falsetto, he did not belt it which is what makes the song such a Torch usually. If they were going to borrow from something, they should've borrowed the track from the HIStory Tour--it's Phenomenal!

#1182. Assisted Suicide? Not so much! You're really reaching here. As I stated before, Michael's children were the most valuable thing in his life, more than even his love for the stage and performing to the point where he gave it up for over 10 years to dedicate himself to them. There is no way Michael, one of the most selfless people who ever lived would put his beloved children through the Torture of having to suffer through life without him, bringing major trauma to their childhood--this was completely contradictory to how passionate he was about children having a loving, carefree childhood. Nuff said.

Peace--MICHAEL/ILUVU2INFINITY

I think the United States sucks!! Yes, Michael may of had a drug problem, but how many other people do? How many other people drink every day and think this is okay? Alcohol is one of the worst drugs but people don't want to see this. The bottom line is no matter what Michael wanted Dr. Murry should have known better, he was the professional. How can they say that Dr. Murry was not doing anything wrong administering propofol in the home? So does this mean all of us can start doing this?? Only in the great U.S.!!
Only in the United We States could you get by with doing this for money. It's sad to think we live in a country where physicians don't even care. It's all about money and greed. Everything that has ever been said about Michael Jackson has always been 99.9% false. He would never hurt a child. He was a great, kind, hard working man. A lot of men in our country today seem to have lost these values.

WHY ARE PEOPLE SUBJECTING MICHAEL TO SO MANY CRUEL REMARKS? DON'T YOU REALIZE IF YOU WERE IN A DIRE SITUATION HE'D BE THE FIRST ONE TO HELP? WHERE DOES ALL THIS CRUELTY COME FROM? MICHAEL IS A VERY CARING, GIVING PERSON. AND HE HAS A PURE HEART. YOU CLEARLY DO NOT REALIZE YOU WILL HAVE TO BE ACCOUNTABLE FOR YOUR CRUELTY AND SOON. AND WHEN YOU ARE ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEM YOU WILL KNOW WHY AT THAT VERY MOMENT. DO YOU THINK YOU COULD AT LEAST TRY TO SHOW A LITTLE KINDNESS, AND SUBTRACT FROM THE MASSIVE HATE WE ALREADY HAVE IN THE WORLD? WE ARE ALL GOING TO GET A MAJOR SURPRISE SOMETIME IN THE NEAR FUTURE. BE WISE! LET PRAYER BE A MAJOR PRIORITY IN YOUR LIFE.

MICHAEL: I JUST FINISHED SAYING A PRAYER FOR YOU AS I DO EVERYDAY. I KNOW THAT YOU ARE SO PAINFULLY AWARE OF ALL THE HURT, STRESS, PAIN, AND CRUELTY IN THIS WORLD. AND I KNOW HOW MUCH IT HURTS YOU. YOU HAVE DONE MORE THAN ANY THOUSAND HUMAN BEINGS COULD DO TO PUT A STOP TO IT. AND INSTEAD OF IT SROPPING, YOU BECAME A VICTIM OF IT. AND FOR THIS I APOLOGIZE FROM MY HEART FOR ALL THOSE WHO PARTICIPATED IN THESE CRUEL ACTS. I THINK OF YOU EVERY DAY, I PICTURE THAT GLOWING SMILE YOU HAVE. AND I LISTEN TO YOUR MUSIC EACH DAY AS I DO MY CHORES. I LOVE YOU FOR YOUR DECENCY, FOR YOUR CARING WAYS AND YOUR PURE HEART. AND AS LONG AS I AM BREATHING I SHALL ASK OUR HEAVENLY FATHER TO BLESS AND PROTECT YOU AND YOUR FAMILY. MAY THE ANGELS OF HEAVEN BE WITH YOU AT ALL TIMES......LE

MJ é sem dúvidas o melhor e mais completo artista POP de todos os tempos e duvido que alguém consiga bater seu legado e influência. 1 anos se passou e nada foi resolvido,não acharam culpados..enquanto isso,os fãs ainda choram essa perda irreparável.Ainda estamos esperando justiça por Michael....será que o(os) responsável(veis) vai ficar impune? Onde está a tão grandiosa e soberana justiça americana?
Justiça para MJ imediatamente!!! Enquanto isso,continuamos a sofrer com sua ausência...Fica com Deus Michael..
O MUNDO inteiro ama você!!
