King of Pop Michael Jackson died one year ago, a news which brought dismay to his millions of fans all over the world. Jackson died of a lethal dose and mixture of sedatives. Many blame his own physician Dr. Conrad Murray for negligence that caused the pop star’s life to be cut short.

At 50, MJ died just shortly before his supposed comeback tour, This Is It. This Friday, exactly a year after the tragic loss, Joe Jackson, his father, filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Murray.

He was asking for no less than $75,000 because of professional negligence, substandard medical care provided, and withholding information about the fatal effects of the drug Propofol. Dr. Murray had been providing the said drug to Jackson to help him sleep during those times.

The lawsuit also states Joe Jackson’s belief on the real reason behind his son’s unexpected death. “Mr. Jackson believes there are other parties responsible for Michael Jackson’s death, but has not yet gathered sufficient information regarding their potential liability or responsibility,” it said, “Mr. Jackson will amend this complaint when he has gathered sufficient information to establish the responsibility or liability of other persons, businesses, or entities for Michael Jackson’s death.”

Meanwhile, fans of Jackson gathered in various locations all over the world to offer tributes, prayers, and vigils to the well-loved King of Pop who had lived a short yet very controversial life.

His relatives also visited his mausoleum and his home and offered remembrance of love for the son, brother, and father who had committed his life to his music and advocacies.
