Michael Jackson's body has been on ice since his death while his family tries to decide where and when to bury him. His father Joe Jackson now says that Michael will be burred in Forest Lawn Cemetery in Los Angeles at 10am on August 29. That would have been Jackson's 51st birthday.
Joe indicated that the burial plans had been finalized in just the past few days, nd says that he will return to Las Vegas after his son is buried that Saturday to receive a celebrity star in Michael's honor at the Brenden Theaters. The theater will also screen the 1988 film "Moonwalker" that day. Michael and his children frequented the cinema, which is located at the Palms.
Joe Jackson also said he is supportive of the LAPD's probe into his son's death on June 25, but said that cops might be making Dr. Conrad Murray "the fall guy for a whole lot of people."
Murray was Jackson's personal doctor, and was with him the day he died. He is being investigated for administering the anesthetic Propofol and other drugs, but denies any wrongdoing.
