Michael Jackson's Death

Two Years Later

6/25/2011 6:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Today is the two-year anniversary of Michael Jackson's death -- and the saga has played out like a soap opera about betrayal, jealousy, love, greed and redemption.

When TMZ broke the news, it triggered a flood of stories about Jackson's struggles with drugs, the doctors who enabled him, the mystery surrounding his death,  a little known drug called propofol, a family war against Michael's estate, a full court press to erase Michael's debt, and a posthumous marketing campaign to rival Elvis.

Take a look at TMZ's timeline from the moment we found something was terribly wrong with Michael.

Will spend this day reflecting what has happened in the last two years. I call your name Michael and say we still love you more and that you are in our hearts. Not thinking of sad thoughts nor people who want to spend time obessing and not taking the time to read the facts. We all came together here because of you and no matter what two years later we are still here thinking of you and sending much love to you, your children and family.

TODAY IS THE WORST DAY IN MY LIFE. ANOTHER YEAR WITHOUT YOU, MICHAEL. CANNOT GET USED TO, AND I WON'T TO.

RIGHT NOW I AM PLAYING YOUR SONGS AND I LEFT THE WINDOW WIDE OPEN SO THAT EVERYBODY COULD HEAR YOUR SONGS FULL OF LOVE AND GENEROSITY.

I MISS YOU MICHAEL, I WILL MISS YOU TILL THE END OF MY LIFE.
THE EARTH IS OFFENDED WITH YOUR PASSING AWAY.

NOW, "MAN IN THE MIRROR" IS ON. I WANT THE PEOPLE WHO CONDEMNED AND STILL CONDEMN YOU TO LOOK AT THEMSELVES IN THE MIRROR AND ASK THEMSELVES:"WHO DID I MAKE HAPPY?" I AM SURE THAT NOT ALL OF THEM WILL FIND THE ANSWER.
BUT YOU DID THE WHOLE WORLD HAPPY, I AM HAPPY TO HAVE KNOWN YOU AS THE BEST ENTERTAINER, DANCER AND THE MOST GENEROUS MAN ON PLANET EARTH. NOBODY CAN SUBSTITUTE YOU, MICHAEL.

WILL NEVER FORGET YOU. LOVE YOU MICHAEL. YOU ARE NOT ALONE, YOU ARE IN MY HEART, ALWAYS. LOVE YOU. REST IN PEACE DEAR MICHAEL!

Michael....I hope you know how much you are missed. Love You MOST!

The sad part of today...it's been TWO years...and nothing has been done for a trial. When MJ was brought to trial, it was arrested, court time and found NOT GUILTY within a year...and here the justice system is taking their good ol' time with this Murray Loser...and he goes on vacations or whatever. He was a DOCTOR, who had a job to do..and he didn't do it. Protecting his patient...regardless of WHO he was. And for all you HATERS out there...do you say the same thing about Elvis? How he was a drug addict, who gained weight, who sang with the soul of a black man. NO! If you have nothing NICE to say about Michael...do say it at all. You people have NO IDEA of who Michael really was. Only his real FRIENDS and FANS do. To the City of Los Angeles...let's get on with the trial already and stop delaying this crap. WE WANT JUSTICE!

Michael Jackson is a true humanitarian, an example to us all. He had devoted much time and money to a wide range of charities. He was listed in the 2000 edition of the Guiness Book Of World Records for breaking the world record for the "Most Charities Supported By a Pop Star". It states that Michael Jackson has supported 39 charity organizations either with monetary donations through sponsorships of their projects or by participating in their silent auction.
