Katherine Jackson: 'Guilt Pushed Abuse Accuser To Suicide'

MICHAEL JACKSON's mother KATHERINE is convinced the father of the boy who accused the star of sexual abuse committed suicide because of his guilt over masterminding the allegations.
Former dentist Evan Chandler, 65, became estranged from his entire family after he accused Jackson of molesting his son Jordan in 1992.
A 13-month police investigation cleared Jackson of any wrongdoing, but the singer, who died a year ago on Friday (25Jun10), later paid the teenager $22 million (£14.6 million) for "personal injuries arising out of claims of negligence" in return for dropping a civil suit against him.
Evan Chandler's body was found at his apartment in New Jersey last November (09) and officials ruled the death as suicide.
In her upcoming book, Never Can Say Goodbye: The Katherine Jackson Archives, the music matriarch writes that she "wants to believe" Chandler killed himself because of the pain he caused the Thriller hitmaker with his claims.
According to TMZ.com, Jackson writes, "Evan Chandler, the father of Michael's first accuser, recently committed suicide.
"Though I can't comment on why, I want to believe his conscience finally caught up with him and he was not able to live with himself after destroying an innocent person's career and breaking his spirit."

I truly believe that too. I hope Evan Chandler rots in hell for what he did. Any selfish idiot who only wanted Mj for his money. I'm sure Michael is amongst the angels, I doubt if Evan is. God bless you Katherine for being such a great mom and grandmother. WE miss Michael terribly.

Yes. The law of karma will get your own actions back to you. Evan Chanlder got it back to him. The Arvizo's will get back to him. And if Murray realy f...cked up he will get it back to him. Although it can last a long time. In this life or in the other. No not in heaven or hell. But he will get it back to him. Everyones gets his own action back from former or this life. But then is the big question?What did Michael do in former lives to get back what he did in this life? Everything is a cause and a reaction to that. Nothing comes falling out of the bleu sky. There has to be a reason. Otherwise he would still be ALIVE.Ohm shante.

jordan has admitted that his father had coerced him to agree to the allegations. i wish the media would slam that on the cover of magazines and all over the TV; like they did with the allegatons so many years ago.michael jackson deserves to go down in history with the clean slate he had all along.as well, i hope karma does prevail for dr.quackConrad and anyone else who hurt MJ. GREED KILLED one of the most beeatiful talented humans on this planet.always L.O.V.E.rip mj.

As I understand it Evan Chandler was suffering from a rare metabolic disorder called Gaucher disease, a hereditary condition most prevalent in the Ashkenazi Jewish population.The disease causes a slow, painful deterioration and if left untreated can be excruciating. He was also bipolar and did not take care of his condition. This is why he was taking all the prescription medications for these illnesses they found in his room after he died. this is what I think mostly contributed to his suicide.
