Rap Phenomenon® Update: Quote from "Joe Jackson" father of Michael Jackson
Joe Jackson, Michael Jackson's father, said that he felt that his son’s death might be the result of “foul play.”
"I just couldn't believe what was happening to Michael. I do believe it was foul play. I do believe that. Yes,” Jackson told ABC News.
A second autopsy on the “King of Pop” has yet to offer any conclusive answers.
Toxicology results have yet to come in, and The L.A. County coroner's office will wait for them before formally listing Michael Jackson’s cause of death. The LAPD is looking specifically at the role prescription drugs may have played in the singer’s death, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Various types of prescription drugs were reportedly recovered from Jackson's home by the detectives, including an anesthetic that's normally used during most surgical procedures. Furthermore, many of MiJac's physicians were contacted for their records, but it's still unclear whether any criminal charges will be filed until the final autopsy reports are revealed.
Joe Jackson has also expressed to ABC News that he has an interest having a "direct role in raising" Michael's three children.
