Peter Lopez in August 2009: Jackson Death Mystery 'Will Be Solved Soon'

5:01pm UK, Friday August 14, 2009
The mysterious circumstances surrounding Michael Jackson's death should be cleared up very soon, his former lawyer has told Sky News. Peter Lopez said he expected the toxicology report to be released in the near future.

The report has been completed but will not be made public while a police investigation is still ongoing.

Mr Lopez told Sky News: "We should hear within the next week. I believe the LAPD are doing a very thorough investigation.

"It's been seven weeks since Michael died, it was announced the reports would be out in five to six weeks, so we are a couple of weeks beyond that which is an indication of the professionalism of the LAPD, making sure they get it right."

Mr Lopez also feels his former client's death could possibly have been avoided.

"I think it's too early to say, we don't have all the facts but he should not be dead, that's pretty clear.

"Something went terribly wrong and we'll find something out about that very shortly."

The lawyer paid tribute to the detectives conducting the investigation into the King of Pop's death, saying he realised they were in a very difficult situation and they were doing "terrific work" to make sure "the right results come out".

DEA agents searched a pharmacy in Las Vegas earlier this week to find prescription documents for Jackson from his former doctor Conrad Murray.They have also searched the doctor's premises, and while he is not an official suspect, Dr Murray is the subject of a manslaughter investigation.

Mr Lopez also feels the media frenzy surrounding the singer's death, as well as continuing questions over the paternity of his children, is irresponsible.

"I think it's very unfortunate these sorts of things get talked about," the lawyer said.

"The children are probably going to hear about these kind of scandalous things. They are bright, young, wonderful kids.

"It's very hurtful and harmful to have this sort of talk out there, I think it's a little irresponsible frankly."
