Shock call over dead pop star

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

MICHAEL Jack­son’s corpse may be dug up for DNA tests af­ter new child sex al­le­ga­tions.

Eleven peo­ple have re­port­edly de­manded that his re­mains be re­moved from his tomb.

The Michael Jack­son Es­tate in Cal­i­for­nia have dis­missed the claims as com­pletely “un­true”.

But U.S. web­site Radar On­line al­leges that “proof of crimes” lie “buried with the King of Pop”.

It re­ported that the Thriller singer’s body “may be ex­humed from its crypt to prove he was a se­rial mo­lester”.

It’s not clear if Cal­i­for­nia law al­lows for a corpse to be tried for sex abuse but a trail-style “in­ves­ti­ga­tion of facts” may be held.


It comes af­ter fur­ther vic­tims of al­leged sex­ual as­sault stepped for­ward claim­ing they were abused by the star.

Foren­sics ex­perts had ap­par­ently told Radar that traces of skin and nails would re­main on his body. But the claims have been slammed by the Michael Jack­son Es­tate, which fired off an an­gry let­ter to the web­site.

De­mand­ing to know who claimed he should be ex­humed, the es­tate said its rep­re­sen­ta­tives “were sur­prised no-one told them about this un­usual de­vel­op­ment”.

Radar’s story was pub­lished in the wake of con­tro­ver­sial doc­u­men­tary Leav­ing Nev­er­land, which fea­tured fresh abuse claims by for­mer child­hood fans of the Bad singer.
