Jackson to be buried

By | Published on Friday 7 August 2009

Michael Jackson’s family are reportedly making moves to bury the singer, six weeks after he died. The news comes after rumours that the family were planning to seek a third autopsy to attempt to finally determine the exact cause of Jackson’s death. However, it is now claimed that the relevant paperwork has been signed to allow the burial to go ahead.

Jackson will apparently be buried at the Forest Lawn Memorial Park cemetery in LA. The singer’s older brother Jermaine had previously said that Michael should be buried at the Neverland ranch, but his mother Katherine, now the legal guardian of his three children, said that her son had not wanted to return there, alive or dead, since his child molestation trial in 2005.

Showbiz journalist Ross King told GMTV: “The word we are getting is the family has at last signed papers that means he will be buried at Forest Lawn Memorial. It’s a famous resting place and lots of famous people are buried there. For a while, Neverland was mentioned. That almost happened but didn’t quite come to fruition and what we are getting today is that the family has signed papers and Michael will be buried at Forest Lawn cemetery. It’s certainly one of those places that you can get into but I’m sure when this news comes out now things will be looked at differently there”.
