Michael Jackson to be Buried Without a Brain

Straight out of a "Thriller"-like video, the Mirror is reporting that Michael Jackson will be buried this week, without his brain.
As MJ’s family attempts to finalize details for the funeral tomorrow, they have been told that his brain will be held back for tests and that they might have to wait up to three weeks for it to be returned to them. This means they will have to go ahead and bury Michael without it.

The Mirror is saying Los Angeles Coroner’s spokesman Craig Harvey confirmed that neuropathology tests will be carried out to see if it holds any clues to the exact cause of his death:

...but the examination cannot begin until at least two weeks after the death when the brain has hardened sufficiently to slice it open. Sources at the coroner’s office revealed that his brain was removed before his body was released to relatives the next day.

A forensic neuropathologist will test Jackson’s brain for, among other things, past drug use and whether he has suffered overdoses in the past.

This source also said that removing the brain is the “only way to carry out the tests”. “The tissue has to be examined,” he said. “I can’t tell you how long that is going to take.”

Apparently there is still a chance the family will bury Jackson with the brain after the tests are finished, but it is extremely rare to hold the body back for two weeks or more.
