Michael Jackson's memorial service was a tear-filled affair for fans around the world, but speculations are rife that his family was actually crying over an empty coffin that day (July 7). There have been reports that the Late King of Pop's brain was not in the casket with his body, but now insiders have claimed that there was nothing inside the coffin. "The coffin was empty. There was no body there at all," The New York Post quoted a source as saying.
Another insider added: "There were two autopsies done but now there's a criminal investigation. Why would they release the body in a week if there's a criminal investigation? And if they charge someone with his death, that person will want his or her own autopsy done." When asked about the puzzle, a rep for the Jacksons said: "I will try to find out." However, the rep did not return the calls.
