Not As Thorough As I'd Have Expected

I've been a fan of Michael Jackson's since I could speak. Loved and still love him dearly. I think Mr. Taraborelli could've done a little more research in putting together the final portion of his book, unless he plans to do another update. So much has been revealed since he rushed to print with this update. For one, Michael Jackson's autopsy proved he indeed had Vitiligo. It also showed his organs were in good condition, indicating he was not an addict, while he might have used pain medication for unpractical reasons at times. And it also seems he might've been the victim of a careless and irresponsible, at best, physician who gave him too much of the powerful anesthetic. I'm hopeful Mr. Taraborelli will do another printing. One with more detail and actual facts.
