Coroner Saves Michael Jackson's Brain
Michael Jackson’s brain has been saved by the coroner! Talk about creepy! But it does serve a purpose. They’re hanging on to a section of MJ’s brain as part of the investigation into his death.

A coroner spokesman says they’re waiting for the organ to harden, and then will conduct a neuropathology test to determine what caused Michael to go into cardiac arrest.

Investigators also say a thorough examination of brain tissue will show which drugs were in his system at the time of his death.

The Jackson family has the option of burying Michael without the missing part of his brain, or they can wait until the tests are completed, and the tissue is replaced before laying him to rest.

That might buy the Jackson family a bit more time to decide where Michael’s burial will be. They can’t seem to come to a decision so perhaps this delay will work in their favor.
