Michael Jackson FBI Files Released; Death Threats, Bizarre Details of Molestation Probe Exposed

by at . Comments

The FBI has released more than 300 pages of documents relating to Michael Jackson, and while they do not provide new insight into his June 2009 death, the information contained still raises eyebrows, and is just as bizarre as you'd expect.

The formerly classified material includes info regarding his 1993 and 2004 child molestation cases, as well as an extortion case where he was a victim.

Despite an application under the Freedom of Information Act, half his file remains secret. What is available, however, provides no shortage of material.

In 2004, local police in Santa Maria, Calif., requested FBI involvement believing the court proceedings against MJ made for "soft target for terrorism.

"No intelligence indicating a terrorist threat" existed, the FBI said, but the bureau did provide technical and investigative assistance into the case.

A new window into Michael Jackson's past has opened via his FBI file.

In June 2005, Jackson was found not guilty of all charges at the end of the four-month trial. The FBI assisted local authorities then and in 1993.

The FBI's legal office in London assisted local authorities with the Michael Jackson child molestation probe in 1993, and in 1995 U.S. customs officials asked the FBI to provide analysis of a VHS tape as part of a child pornography investigation.

The tape - "a multi-generation copy of poor quality" - was marked "Michael Jackson's Neverland Favorites: An All Boy Anthology," FBI documents say.

In 1993, police in L.A. began investigating allegations of child abuse against Michael Jackson made by the father of 13-year old Jordan Chandler.

Jackson vehemently denied the claims and he was never charged. A civil case was settled out of court in 1994 when he paid Chandler $20 million.

His close friend, Arnold Klein, recently offered this explanation.

The FBI files show that the bureau went around the world trying to make a case against Jackson for alleged child molestation the first time around.

In 1993, law enforcement personnel planned "to travel to Manila, Philippines ... for the purpose of interviewing (names deleted) concerning their knowledge of accusations against Michael Jackson of sexual abuse of young boys."

The people sought to be interviewed were a man and woman who worked at Neverland Ranch from 1988-1990 and allegedly witnessed molestation.

An FBI special agent was involved in the Manila trip. Another document states a legal attache for the U.S. Embassy in London was sending information regarding sexual misconduct by Jackson in England - a phone call to a teenage boy.

The FBI became involved after the LAPD Sexually Exploited Child Unit contacted them asking the agency for assistance with "a possible federal violation against Jackson concerning transportation of a minor across state lines for immoral purposes."

The FBI files also contain bizarre info about an investigation of a man who made death threats against Jackson and then-president George W. Bush.

The man, revealed to be Frank Paul Jones, threatens to kill Jackson and George W. Bush unless he receives money from mobster John Paul Gotti.

Obviously.

Jackson's untimely demise earlier this year remains under investigation, with his personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, the primary focal point.

1/2 of the FBI file secret! Well I know why! and the public that loved this man should know! BUT I'am waiting for an offer. it is strange that the others that know the same facts don't say something? BUT THIS PART IS PUBLIC! if you want to know. Michael Jackson was "SET-UP" BUT He was not totaly inocent, but with some HELP from his family and friends [tough love] we would still be seeing The King with His kids. Yes the attorney/private investigator teams did the work but that is only a job. Being a crook and a judas to your friends is not!!! It is not time to drop this!!! unless you think it's not important?

Because a payment was made in the case of Jordan Chandler does not mean MJ was guilty.It is time this is understood.
Those FBI files DO NOT indicate that MJ was guilty of child molestation as he was charged. I read it twice and thought they simply had nothing to prove he was guilty. The FBI notes are scrabbled and typical paperwork which in fact states nothing because they did not have any information to showig he was guilty. Even after searching his home with the second accusation, MJ had no objects to say he was intersted in children, no photos, literature, or personal items belonging to these children or any other child for that fact. There are a bunch of liars still existing and I hope they have their conscience seared.

I used to work for a magazine and Michael Jackson was the kindest person I have ever met. He was a lovely guy that never deserved the horrible treatment he seemed to always receive. You'd have to pay me a whole lot of do-re-mi to believe ANYTHING nasty about him.

Why did Michael pay?
1º Because he had a tour and if he had gone to court and cancelled his shows he would have lost much more. Or do you think police would wait for him to finish his shows to indict him?
2º He was a very rich man, $15.333.000.000 was nothing for him.
3º 'Cause he was addicted in painkillers and wanted to recover from it.
Even though he had paid the boy and the boy refused to testimony police could suit him 'cause they claimed to have factual proofs.
