Monday, June 25: Third Anniversary of the Death of Michael Jackson

"King of Pop" Michael Jackson died on June 25, 2009 after suffering cardiac arrest. He was 50. The Los Angeles Fire Department was called to Jackson's residence at 12:26 p.m. Paramedics performed CPR on Jackson, who was not breathing when they arrived at his home. He was rushed to LA Medical Center, just six miles from his home. Last year, a jury convicted Jackson's doctor, Conrad Murray of involuntary manslaughter in the 2009 drug-overdose death of the King of Pop. Prosecutors alleged that Murray supplied an insomnia-plagued Jackson with the powerful operating-room anesthetic propofol to help him sleep as he rehearsed for his "This Is It" comeback tour.
