After a report today claimed to have lurid details from Michael Jackson‘s autopsy, including descriptions of his body being “riddled with track marks” and his head being almost completely bald, the Los Angeles County Coroner’s office has released a statement decrying those details as untrue.
“The report that is being published did not come from this office. I don’t know where the information came from, or who that information came from. It is not accurate. Some of it is totally false,” says the statement.
A British newspaper was the first to publish the bogus information, saying MJ’s body was covered in needle marks, his hair was reduced to peach fuzz and he weighed only 112 pounds.
The real results of the autopsy aren’t due for 4-6 more weeks.
