However, it could not be found if the cemetery would be Forest
Lawn Memorial Park, as was originally expected.
A copy of Jackson's death certificate, dated Tuesday, has named Forest Lawn for temporary use. The Jackson family held a private service at Forest Lawn before the casket was taken to the Staples Center, but Los Angeles Officer April Harding has revealed that the 'Thriller" singer"s body will not be returning there.
In the certificate, 'deferred' has been typed in the space for the 'cause of death', as authorities are still waiting for the results of additional forensic tests before reaching their conclusion. According to Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter, Jackson's brain, or at least a part of it, was still being held by investigators, and would be returned to the family for interment only after neuropathology tests were completed.
"As soon as we are done with the brain, we will return it. There is a whole series of tests that will be done," Fox News quoted Winter as saying. Winter said that families sometimes delay burying a loved one until after the brain has been returned, but the Jackson family has still not disclosed their intentions. "The last I heard, they are not burying the body yet," said Winter.
Meanwhile, cops and coroner's officials continue to probe the cause of Jackson"s death.
