Picture - Michael Jackson

File Photos * LA TOYA: 'MICHAEL'S CASH WENT MISSING HOURS AFTER HIS DEATH' MICHAEL JACKSON's sister LA TOYA first became suspicious her superstar sibling had been murdered for his fortune after discovering around $2 million (£1.2 million) in cash was missing from his Los Angeles home following his death. In an astonishingly candid interview with Britain's News of The World, La Toya Jackson claims the Thriller hitmaker was purposely killed by those closest to him in a bid to get hold of his mega-bucks music publishing catalogues - which she insists are worth well over a $1 billion (£666 million). And she first thought foul play was involved in her brother's untimely demise after she arrived at his house in Holmby Hills, L.A., hours after his death - insisting wads of cash and jewellery the star usually kept at his residences were nowhere to be found. She explains to the publication, Michael always had cash in his homes, usually around $2 million (£1.2 million) which he used to pay out on things. People said he wasn't wealthy, but Michael always had money with him. When I went to the house later that day there was no cash or jewellery. So many people had been through that house before I got there. Someone went in there and did a good job. It was very strange. And in an eerie twist, La Toya reveals that Jackson suspected people were out to get him in order to take over the rights of his own mega-hits, as well as a huge portion of the Beatles' back-catalogue. She recalls, A couple of years ago Michael told me he was worried that people were out to get him. He said, 'They're gonna kill me for my publishing. They want my catalogues and they're gonna kill me for these.' I knew something terrible was going to happen. Last week (begs06Jul09), the head of L.A. police, William Bratton, confirmed that cops are refusing to rule out the possibility that Jackson was murdered.
