MJ Autopsy Photos ALLOWED In Dr. Murray Trial

4/21/2011 3:08 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The judge in the Conrad Murray involuntary manslaughter case has allowed prosecutors to present TWO photos taken at Michael Jackson's autopsy to be used as evidence at trial.

TMZ has learned ... one of the photos shows the pop star clothed -- while laid out on a gurney.

The other photo shows Jackson's naked body -- but the judge explained "certain parts" will be "blocked out." He didn't explain which parts.

The judge ruled the photos are relevant under the evidence code -- and are "not gruesome, graphic or inflammatory."

I have a bad feeling these pictures are going to be released by the media and will be available over the internet and everybody can gawk at the corpse of Michael Jackson.

Unfortunately, he will look like a ghoul with his dyed white skin, his emaciated body, and his bald head. So sad.

I hate this, because these pics will be leaked sooner or later. And like other famous figures such as Tupac and JFK, when his children search MJ in the google images, they'll see pics of their dead father all over the internet. I hate when autopsy pics are released, it's a violation of privacy and of human rights. I only hope that this never happens to me or my loved ones. Its a shame that some of you sickos find pleasure in this. I hope that the people handling these pictures are responsible.

AH    

Should 'inflammatory' have been 'defamatory'?

Anyways, just b/c the photos are going to be allowed at the trial doesn't mean certain sites (TMZ) need to be publishing them.

Having those pictures available to the jurors at Dr. Murry's trial is one thing. Allowing the general public to see them would be sick. Let's hope they never get out.

What are these photos suppose to prove. Damn even in death Michael is going to be made fun of and mocked at. We love you Michael and are trying so hard to hold up your legacy. Please everybody look up 'CADEFLAW GROUP" to help us stop the press from this kind of thing.
