What Really Happened to Michael Jackson?

You may not be ready for the answer

Please be advised that this article is going to cause more questions than it answers. Regrettably, you probably should prepare yourself for more frustration as you yearn to find out who exactly is responsible for the death of Michael Joseph Jackson. If I’ve learned nothing else from all that I know (or think I know), it’s this: Few things are as they seem. That’s right. The “obvious” isn’t so “obvious” after all. There are so many twists and turns in this plot that it rigorously tests your sanity. The entire affair is deeply shroud of mystery and the puppet masters are well hidden behind the cloak of anonymity.

But are these masters of illusion responsible for the death of the King of Pop? Why are they so clandestine in their actions? Do they have something to hide? The obvious answer is yes, they’re concealing something. And why are they concealing this something? Prepare yourself to enter a multidimensional array of mind-boggling mazes and lurid labyrinths where good guys and bad guys swap roles as they evoke disillusionment and heartbreak. Believe me, if you knew just some of the details it would make you want to take your marbles and go home. Here’s what I mean.

In the past week I have learned things that virtually nullify major components of the articles I have written thus far about who may in fact be directly responsible for the death of Michael Jackson. I’ve encountered shockers that rocked my foundations. This resulted in an abrupt, unceremonious paradigm shift. Here’s the first shocker: It may not be Dr. Conrad Murray who had anything to do with Michael’s death. Process that. Now, I know you need time to recover from this reality, but, here comes the next shocker: AEG and Dr. Tohme Tohme may not be silent culprits in Michael’s death. Oh, I have it on good authority that they drove him relentlessly. Some say they even mistreated him so as to get a major payday. But, kill the King of Pop (really, the King Of All Music!)? Not likely, based on new information I’ve been made privy to, but am not at liberty to share at this time. Anyway you look at it you come to the stark realization that there are more plot twists in this entire ordeal than in an Agatha Christie novel.

I’ve asked myself how I could be so wrong on these points. The information I received was from highly reputable sources. It was solid. I’m in the loop. Oh yes, the information was confusing and even conflicting at times. Let me illustrate: The stock in a multibillion dollar company has suddenly and unexpectedly suffered a dramatic devaluation. An emergency board of directors meeting is called by the CEO. Both senior vice-presidents cut short their vacations and fly in right away. The meeting lasts five grueling hours. Because of your position as editor for the company paper you have access to both senior vice-presidents. One gives you the scoop as to what happened in the meeting. You go with that and publish it in the company’s paper. The next day, the other senior vice-president gives you conflicting information. So, you go with that in the next issue. A week later, the CEO gives you yet a third version of what transpired in the meeting. Though reluctant, you submit an article based on his take to the paper. Finally, the shareholders themselves send you their version, and it doesn’t jibe with any of the three previous ones!

Why were all the versions different? New facts arouse, even though it was determined at the time that all the facts were in. These altered previously held conclusions thought to be fixed in stone. This scenario is not at all too dissimilar from what is going on in Michael Jackson’s death investigation. This is why it’s taking the police so long! To put this entire matter in perspective, the spine tingling intrigue surrounding the death investigation of the Gloved One rivals the bold brazen assassination of President John F. Kennedy 46 years ago. That happened in broad daylight while the entire world watched! Now, compare that with the death of Michael Jackson, who died in the secluded confines of a bedroom, completely out of the sight of earth’s population of nearly seven billion people. I’m not exaggerating when I say the deeper you dig in this whole mess, the more convoluted the details become. The closer you look at the puzzle, the more confused you become. And then there are the details you wish you had not uncovered, which brings me to my next point.

Other factors come into play that are so often left unconsidered. For example, what if the complete truth is something most of us really can’t handle? What if the truth isn’t and wasn’t meant for public consumption? Don’t get me wrong. I’ll always speak truth as I understand it. Don’t conclude, though, that I’ll tell all truths. And, yes, certain truths aren’t, in fact, meant to be told. For example, it may be true that my daughter is experiencing her monthly cycle, but that’s probably not something I’m likely to alert the world to. Still, you shouldn’t conclude from this that I’ll ever withhold greater truths as these present a more accurate picture of matters. This will especially be the case if the presentation of said truths readily shapes a distressingly distorted representation of the “facts.” The bottom line is this: Some things are better left unsaid. Some efforts better left abandoned. Some mysteries better left unsolved. Even with having said all this, there may well be explosive, even monumental developments on the horizon.

The message I’ll leave you with is this, Michael Jackson was one of the most loving, generous souls to ever enter our consciousness. He was a beautiful man. And, without a doubt, he deserved far better than what he got. That’s the tragedy of it all. But, not to worry, God sees all. Any wrong done will be righted in God’s own inimitable way. And as for Michael’s magnanimous actions, well, he can now rest from all his labors of love. And we can rest assured that he will be rewarded for all the wonderful works he has done. (Rev. 14:13) Peace and blessings. Amen.
