Michael Jackson To Be Buried Today

Michael Jackson will be buried at sunset today (03.09.09).

The private funeral will take place at the Holly Terrace Grand Mausoleum at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in the Hollywood Hills. It is expected to start at 7pm and run for 45 minutes.

Media and fans will be banned from the service, which will be attended by a handful of close friends and family.

Michael's long-time friend Diana Ross is expected to attend and music legend Aretha Franklin will sing as the 'King of Pop' is lowered into his grave.

After it is interred, the body will be encased in thick concrete to protect it from grave robbers.

The ceremony will be paid for by Michael's estate, after a judge granted his mother Katherine's request for financial assistance yesterday (02.09.09).

Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Police Department is preparing to charge someone with killing Michael, after his official death certificate found he died as a result of "intravenous injection by another".

Michael's personal physician Dr. Conrad Murray is currently at the centre of police investigation, after he admitted to injecting the singer with powerful anaesthetic Propofol shortly before he died.

Michael's death certificate lists "acute Propofol intoxication" as the cause of death. It also mentions refers to other sedatives and anti-anxiety drugs administered by Murray as a "significant contributor" to his passing.
