The autopsy on Michael Jackson's body revealed him to be in terrible shape, with only pills in his stomach when he died, according to a report out of the UK.
These findings seem to substantiate allegations made by former Jackson nanny Grace Rwaramba, however, neither story has been independently confirmed.
The Sun, which claims to have obtained the autopsy results, claims:
- Michael Jackson's hips, thighs and shoulders were riddled with needle wounds.
- There is unexplained bruising on Jackson's knees and on the front of his shins.
- That he weighed just 112 pounds, a shockingly low number for a 5'10" man.
- His body was covered by a plethora of surgery scars were thought to be the result of at least 13 plastic surgery operations.
- The star was bald at the time of his death and suffered several broken ribs, probably from the failed attempts to revive him.
- There were four "injection sites" near his heart, where rescue workers reportedly shot adrenaline into his heart to restart it.

Whether or not these claims are substantiated remains to be seen, so take it all with a grain of salt. In related news, the lawyer for Jackson's personal doctor, Conrad Murray, claims now that when Murray found Jackson, he had a faint pulse.
Murray's lawyer, Edward Chernoff, says Murray went into Michael Jackson's bedroom and saw he wasn't breathing, then immediately began administering CPR.
Chernoff told the AP, regarding his client, that "He just happened to find him in his bed, and he wasn't breathing. Mr. Jackson was still warm and had a pulse."
In response to a major story circulating, Chernoff says Murray did not prescribe or give Jackson Demerol or OxyContin at any point in his treatment of the star.
Rumors have surfaced that Jackson OD'd on Demerol. Chernoff says any drugs Murray prescribed were given in response to a specific complaint from Jackson.
