When Michael Jackson’s autopsy is completed, his body will be released to his family.
The spokesman for the coroner’s office said he had no knowledge whether or not Michael Jackson had been given an injection of Demerol shortly before he went into cardiac arrest yesterday.

Meanwhile, Michael Jackson’s three children, Prince Michael, 11, Paris, 10, and Prince Michael Jr. (Blanket), 7, are with their grandmother and nanny.
