TMZ has been in contact with the Jackson family since Michael’s death yesterday, and they seem to believe that they have figured out the cause of death even before the results from the official autopsy.
TMZ is reporting that a close member of Michael Jackson's family has told them Jackson had been receiving a daily injection of a synthetic narcotic similar to morphine, Demerol, and yesterday he received a shot at 11:30 AM. These family members are supposedly saying that the dosage was "too much" and that's what caused his cardiac arrest/death.
Jackson’s body has been taken from the Ronald Regan Medical Center to the Los Angeles coroner's office where an autopsy will take place. Results are expected at some point this afternoon.
