MJ to be buried without his brain

Michael Jackson is to be buried without his brain, it has been reported.

Following an autopsy at the Los Angeles Coroner's Office, the singer's brain has been detained for neurological tests - including ones to see what drugs he had taken.

Rather than postpone the funeral, the Jackson family has instead decided to bury him without it.

Jackson's funeral will be held at the Forest Lawn Memorial Parks cemetery, after planning permission for a burial at Neverland was rejected

The tests, which cannot be done until the brain has sufficiently hardened, are expected to show up any past drug or alcohol abuse, or overdoses the star may have suffered.

According to The Sunday Mirror, a source from the coroner's office said that removing the brain was 'the only way to carry out the tests'.

'The tissue has to be examined. I can't tell you how long that is going to take,' he said.

There has been massive demand for tickets to Jackson's public memorial in LA's Staples Centre

he test results could also play a crucial role in criminal investigations into the star's death, the Sunday Express has claimed.

Six of his doctors now face being quizzed by the Drug Enforcement Agency, and the State Attorney General Jerry Brown has ordered an investigation into which pills were
prescribed and dispensed to Jackson - and by whom.

'If there has been abuses, charges will follow,' a spokesman for Mr Brown said.

The star's funeral is taking place on Tuesday morning in the Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, Los Angeles County, after planning permission for burial at Neverland was refused.

The family had initially planned a funeral procession from the morgue to Jackson's 2800-acre ranch, where a viewing of the body would be open to the public.

Now, however, they are holding a closed-casket family ceremony followed by a public send-off at LA's Staples Centre, during which Stevie Wonder will perform.
