- A never before seen footage of the police raid of Neverland Ranch “paints a dark and frightening picture” of Michael Jackson
- The police uncovered his extensive collection of pornography and photographs of naked children
- Jermaine Jackson claims the report was made up to slander his brother
In 2003, the Santa Barbara County police raided Neverland Ranch while investigating charges of child molestation that had been brought against Michael Jackson, to which he was acquitted in 2005.
7 years after the late pop star’s death in June 25 2009, a never before seen footage of the police raid surfaced and details what Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department found during their raid which “paints a dark and frightening picture of Jackson.”
The video revealed for the first time a hidden closet in the King of Pop’s bedroom which contained a disturbing collection of pornography that included images of children’s faces superimposed on adult bodies, as well as shocking images of child torture and sadomasochism, and materials that can be used to groom children for future abuse, as per an article published by Radar.
Inside the hidden closet, police also found a signed photograph of Macaulay Culkin which was signed “Don’t leave me alone in the house.”
The police report claims that in Jackson’s bedroom and bathroom alone there were at least 7 collections of work found by investigators that show boys in their teenage years or younger, in various states of undress.
One private investigator with direct knowledge of the raids said: “The detectives’ report cites Michael even used sexy photos of his own nephews.”
“Michael Jackson had truly perverse sexual appetites, and the twisted photos tell a sadistic side of him that nobody really knew,” the source added.
In his brother’s defense, Jermaine Jackson believes that the police report was made up to slander the late pop star: “In death, Michael still suffers trial by media but his exoneration is enshrined in court transcripts ‘journalists’ are too lazy to read.”
Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department insisted it didn’t release the documents to the media, as per an article published by Mirror.
“The Sheriff’s Office did not release any of the documents and/or photographs to the media. The Sheriff’s Office released all of its reports and the photographs as part of the required discovery process to the prosecution and the defense.”
