A never-before-seen police report from when the Santa Barbara Police Department investigated Michael Jackson for child molestation in 2003 has been making the rounds on the Internet lately, and while the report seems almost too over the top to be true (Jackson was into some real fucked up porn if it is), new footage from the raid is a little more believable, albeit creepy.
Throughout the footage you can see just how many toys Jackson kept in his house, and man oh man is it overkill. But that’s not even the creepy part – wait until you see the doll collection. No grown man or child needs that many baby or porcelain dolls, however the footage ends right as police are entering a hidden closet located in the back of Jackson’s bedroom that had reportedly been “kept locked with three deadlocks”:
Inside the closet, police reportedly found everything from stuffed animals to a signed photograph of Macaulay Culkin and alleged naked photos.
Culkin signed his photo: “Don’t leave me alone in the house.”(via)
You’re telling me.
Speaking to US website Radar Online, an investigator on the case said: “The documents exposed Jackson as a manipulative, drug-and-sex-crazed predator who used blood, gore, sexually explicit images of animal sacrifice and perverse adult sex acts to bend children to his will.”
“He also had disgusting and downright shocking images of child torture, adult and child nudity, female bondage and sadomasochism.”
… The investigator added: “Based on my training, this type of material can be used as part of the “grooming” process, by which people (those seeking to molest children) lower the inhibitions of their intended victims and facilitate the molestation of said victims.”(via)
Jackson’s family, predictably, has come forward to deny these claims and maintain that Michael was innocent of any charges that had been brought forward in the past:
More photos reportedly from inside Jackson’s secret locked closet can be seen below, including the signed autograph from Macauly Culkin:
Regardless of whether or not the molestation allegations are true, it’s clear that Michael was surely at least a little “off” in the head (and yes, we’re putting that very, very mildly).
