Police reports from the 2003 investigation of Michael Jackson have surfaced online and reveal what officers found in the home of the famous pop star.
Radar Online are reporting that, according to the reports, Jackson was alleged to have stockpiled images of pornography, animal torture, S&M and gore.
The reports come from a police raid of the ranch in November of 2003. In the aftermath Jackson was charged with seven counts of child molestation and two counts of giving an intoxicant to a minor.
An investigator on the Jackson case revealed further details on the discoveries to Radar.
“The documents collected by the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department paint a dark and frightening picture of Jackson, The documents exposed Jackson as a manipulative, drug-and-sex-crazed predator who used blood, gore, sexually explicit images of animal sacrifice and perverse adult sex acts to bend children to his will,” a source is quotes as saying.
“He also had disgusting and downright shocking images of child torture, adult and child nudity, female bondage and sadomasochism.”
The news comes at the same time Hollywood director JJ Abrams and author Tavis Smiley are teaming up to create a miniseries about the last days of Jackson.
The series will be based on a new book from Smiley, Before You Judge Me: The Triumph and Tragedy of Michael Jackson’s Last Days.
