Dr Rogers noted in his autopsy report that Jackson's lips were tattooed pink, while his eyebrows were a dark tattoo. The front of his scalp was also tattooed black, apparently to blend his hairline in with the wigs he wore. The autopsy confirmed what Jackson told people who questioned why his skin tone became lighter in the 1980s. Jackson had "vitiligo, a skin pigmentation disease," Rogers said. So, some areas of the skin appear light and others appear dark. Debts, drugs, messy bedroom were highlighted in Jackson trial. Jackson's lawyer Michael Koskoff made sure the jury heard that, even though it had nothing to do with how he died.
Jackson's mother and three children are suing AEG Live, contending the company that was promoting his "This Is It" shows was liable for his death because of the negligent hiring, retention and supervision of Murray.AEG Live argues that Jackson chose Murray as his tour doctor and that the company had no way of knowing he was using the surgical anesthetic propofol to put the singer to sleep each night. Rogers concluded that a propofol overdose killed Jackson, although several sedatives Murray gave him that morning contributed to his death. Los Angeles coroner's toxicologist Dan Anderson, who studied the drugs in Jackson's body, testified, that the level of propofol found in Jackson's body was consistent with major surgery anesthesia.
Propofol is a dangerous drug when not used properly, he concluded, Money woes may have led Murray to 'break the rules.
