Michael Jackson's death: Family might want independent autopsy, Jesse Jackson says
Jesse Jackson, who met Friday with members of the Jackson family at their Encino compound, said they have questions about Michael Jackson's death and might want a second, independent autopsy.
The Los Angeles County coroner's office performed an autopsy Friday but said a cause of death was pending until more toxicology tests could be completed. Jermaine Jackson has said on Thursday that it appeared his brother died of cardiac arrest, but said the cause of death would only be confirmed by the county's autopsy report.
