It has not been determined what the Michael Jackson cause of death is but theories are emerging prior to the star’s autopsy which is scheduled for tomorrow.  One theory is that a possible demerol overdose caused the heart attack which killed the “King of Pop” Michael Jackson.

Michael Jackson 1958-2009

The British newspaper The Sun is reporting that the heart attack which killed Jackson was caused by an overdose of the pain killer Demerol. The Sun also reported that he was suffering from skin cancer, which would most likely be the reason for the need for such a powerful narcotic to deal with the pain of such a disease.

The Sun reported the following:

Los Angeles County Coroner Fred Corell last night confirmed that Jackson had died of heart failure at 2.26pm local time.

Last night it was suspected his collapse could have been caused by an overdose of painkiller.

An Emergency Room source at UCLA hospital said Jackson aides told medics he had collapsed after an injection of potent Demerol — similar to morphine.

A Jacko source said: “Shortly after taking the Demerol he started to experience slow shallow breathing.

“His breathing gradually got slower and slower until it stopped.

Jackson was transported to the hospital and was not breathing when paramedics arrived to transport him to the UCLA medical center. It was also reported by The Sun that CPR was administered by his staff but the star never regained consciousness and was pronounced dead at the hospital.

“His staff started mouth-to-mouth and an ambulance was called which got there in eight minutes “But found he was in full respiratory arrest, no breathing and no pulse. They started full CPR and rushed him to hospital.

“When he arrived they started resuscitation, giving him heart shocks and inserted a breathing tube and other supportive measures to try and save his life.

“He never regained consciousness.The family was told that he had passed.”

There are no reports or indications that this was anything more than an accidental overdose of Demerol, and there will be no definite answer until the autopsy is completed.

Report on the Death of Michael Jackson – Video

Condolences to Jackson’s family, especially his children, Michael Joseph Jackson, Jr, Paris Michael Katherine Jackson and Prince “Blanket” Michael Jackson II. This news was completely unexpected and shocked the world when it was announced that Michael Jackson had died. We will not know what the Michael Jackson Cause of Death is until the final autopsy results are released, and if the reports of a possible Demerol overdose are correct it may be some time until that can be confirmed.

I grew up thinking Thriller was the coolest thing ever and I remember listening to my cousin’s vinyl album over and over again. Jackson had his fair share of struggles and controversy but he was undeniably one of the most famous people on the planet. Feel free to share your thoughts below.
