The Los Angeles District Attorney’s office has admitted there is a criminal investigation into Michael Jackson’s death.
Michael Jackson’s death is being treated as a "criminal investigation".
Despite denying reports the late singer’s passing last month is being investigated as a homicide by the Los Angeles Police Department, the city’s district attorney’s office has now admitted there is to be a legal probe into the passing of Michael.
A spokesperson for the district attorney’s office said: "There have been conversations by district attorney personnel with police and coroner’s officials in connection with the ongoing investigation.
"It is common for law enforcement agencies throughout Los Angeles County to be in contact with the District Attorney’s Office during criminal investigations. We provide legal assistance to law enforcement, if asked. No case has been formally presented to the office for evaluation at this time."
“Michael’s body has not yet been buried, despite his funeral taking place last week, and it is believed to be because the family don’t want to have to exhume his casket if the criminal investigation requires it.”
