Dukes Of Hazzard - Dukes Of Hazzard Star Fears Jackson Tragedy Sparked Husband's Suicide

Former Dukes Of Hazzard star Catherine Bach fears Michael Jackson's death in 2009 prompted her lawyer husband to take his life - but she still cannot figure out why.

Peter Lopez shot himself as the first anniversary of the King of Pop's death approached in April, 2010 and three years later his actress wife is no closer to solving the mystery behind his tragic act.

The entertainment lawyer, who represented Jackson and helped the superstar map out his ill-fated This Is It comeback dates, left no suicide note and Bach reveals her late husband didn't drink or take drugs and the family was "financially stable".

The actress only has one theory and tells American tabloid the Globe, "He was the man responsible for putting the This Is It tour together. I think he felt responsible for what happened to Michael. That gave him a lot of grief."

Jackson died from an accidental overdose of anaesthetic propofol while he was in the finals stages of rehearsals for the planned This Is It dates in London.

Bach reveals she and her daughters are now over the worst of the tragedy thanks to family and friends, who have supported them through their grief.

She adds, "We all fell apart. I was in a state of shock for a year. I wouldn't sleep for weeks at a time, maybe just a few hours (sic)... (but) we've stayed very, very close to our priest. Our friends surrounded us with love and wouldn't let me fall."

I think it was more about "What Peter Knew" and I do not think for one minute he committed SUICIDE. I Urge the FBI to re open the case and find out who is really behind this. Three people that were involved with MJ have died in Mysterious Circumstances, First the FATHER of the first "allegation Victim, who "suppose to pulled the trigger mere months after MJ's death, Evan Chandler, my personal opinion is, that he was ready to talk who really put him up to the lies, then Peter Lopez less than a year after MJ's death, just so he took his children to school in the morning, came back home, went to the garden and shot himself! After having his teeth done mere days before and was due for a dinner party the next day, WHO DOES THAT??? Reading and investigating the Autopsy REport is really an eye opener, there are so many loop holes in there. Third Dileo, long time Manager of MJ, died due to complications of surgery. His lap top was ordered to be produced at this ongoing AEG Trial, his wife and daughter refused until the faced official charges from a Judge to hand over the lap top or face prison. The content is suppose to be some sort of eye opener as well. So you figure it out. Sudden Suicides without reason seem to be the NORM in the Entertainment Business and most end up as open and Shut cases without serious investigations.
