Did Michael Jackson OD? Saturday, 27 June 2009 02:30 Michael Jackson most likely died from an overdose of pharmaceutical drugs.

The King of Pop was injected with Demerol shortly before before going into cardiac arrest on June 25 at 11:30 am.

He died three hours later.According to reports, Jackson was on a smorgasbord of 'scripts - Demerol, OxyContin, Dilaudid, Vicodin, Zoloft, Xanax and Paxil.

He received Demerol injections three times daily for pain related to injuries sustained while performing."After taking the Demerol, he started to experience slow, shallow breathing," Reuters quotes a source.

"His breathing gradually got slower and slower until it stopped."Jackson did not respond to CPR and was pronounced dead at 2:26 pm.

He was 50.In 1977, Elvis Presley died in a similar fashion, at the age of 42.

Though it was originally announced as cardiac arrhythmia, drugs were ultimately the cause.

As many as 10 prescription drugs, including Demerol, Morphine, Codeine and Quaaludes, were found in his system.Both Jackson and Presley, it appears, overdosed on powerful opiates after prolonged physical deterioration and body changes such as wholesale facial reconstruction in the case of Jackson, and slurred speech and bloating on the part of Presley.Jackson's downward spiral was more shocking.

Like Howard Hughes, he became the world's most famous recluse, showing up periodically in public wearing hospital masks and pajamas, pushed around in a wheelchair.The singer's later years were plagued by scandal due to repeated charges of sexually assaulting minors at his sprawling Neverland Ranch (see mug shot above).

Though never convicted, Jackson - like OJ - was found guilty in the court of public opinion.The whitening of his already relatively light African-American skin (due to a condition known as vitiligo) enhanced Jackson's perceived weirdness, as did the plastic surgery that enlarged his eyes, indented his chin and destroyed his nose.From the cherubic teenager with the oversized afro to the Jheri-curled Moonwalker in red-leather and white socks to the effeminate, coiffed object of derision, Michael Jackson transformed before our eyes, like a laboratory experiment.

Who was that man in the miirror? While calling Jackson "a spectacular performer and a music icon," even Pres.

Obama, through Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, acknowledged that "aspects of his life were sad and tragic."
