The leaked autopsy details of Michael Jackson show that the pop icon was a virtual skeleton as he was barely eating and only had pills in his stomach when he died, according to a new report. According to the detailed autopsy reported by The Sun, Jackson was bald, bruised and had broken ribs. Singer's hips, thighs and shoulders were riddled with needle wounds which are said to be result of injections of narcotic painkillers, given three times a day for years. Experts found that the harrowing details of Jackson's deteriorating health while investigating his sudden death in Los Angeles on Thursday. The examination showed that the star had plunged to a "severely emaciated" state. It also said that anorexic Jackson had been eating just one meager meal a day. Pathologists found that his stomach was empty and only had partially-dissolved pills which he took before the painkiller injection which stopped his heart. The report also claimed that the pop star was wearing a wig when he died and pathologists said that a little more than "peach fuzz" covered his scalp. A scarred section of skin above his left ear was entirely bald which is said to be the result of a 1984 accident when his hair caught fire while shooting an ad for Pepsi. According to the newspaper, Jackson also suffered several broken ribs as rescuers pumped his chest after he collapsed in cardiac arrest. Four injection wounds were found above or near to Jackson's heart. All appeared to have resulted from attempts to pump adrenaline directly into the organ in a failed bid to restart it. Three of the injections had penetrated the heart wall causing damage but a fourth missed and hit one of the 50-year-old singer's ribs. The autopsy also found unexplained bruises on Jackson's knees and on the fronts of both shins. There are also said to be cuts on his back, indicating a recent fall. The King of Pop's face bore many plastic surgery scars, while the bridge to his nose had vanished and its right side had partially collapsed. As the investigation of Jackson's death focus on his personal physician Dr Conrad Murray, a source close to the Jackson entourage said, "Michael's family and fans will be horrified when they realise the appalling state he was in. He was skin and bone, his hair had fallen out and had been eating nothing but pills when he died. "Injection marks all over his body and the disfigurement caused by years of plastic surgery show he'd been in terminal decline for years. His doctors and the hangers-on stood by as he self-destructed. Somebody is going to have to pay," the source added. Cardiologist Murray was thought to have given Jackson the final injection of painkiller Demerol. Murray is said to be facing serious questions about his resuscitation attempts, which began when he started as Jackson lay unconscious on a bed. Basic first aid guidance says patients must be face-up on a hard surface before compressions. Experts wondered that how a trained cardiologist could have made such an error, potentially wasting vital minutes. Additional damage was believed to have been caused by oxygen masks and tubing inserted during resuscitation attempts. However the probe also found that Jackson was recovering well from skin cancer with an operation to shave cells from his chest.
