New images show how Michael Jackson spent his final hours in the “squalid lifestyle of a drug addict”, authors have claimed.
The pictures show vials of drugs, a bloodied shirt, and a bizarre shrine to babies on his bedroom dresser.
Authors Mark Langhorne and Matt Richard detail the King of Pop’s last moments before he was pronounced dead on June 25, 2009 in their book ’83 Minutes: The Doctor, The Damage, and the Shocking Death of Michael Jackson’.
In an excerpt obtained by Radar, they detail the pill bottles, oxygen tanks and medical supplies littered around the bedroom of Michael’s Holmby Hills mansion in Los Angeles.
Tables were strewn with medical paraphernalia such as vials of drugs, syringes and tubes,” they wrote.
“Plastic bags, scattered on tops of chairs and tabletops, contained latex gloves, creams and saline bags.”
Police also found a bloodied white shirt hanging alongside other clothes in his bedroom.
The authors alleged the bedroom “smelled terribly” because Michael refused to allow cleaners access to the room.
