The late pop singer Michael Jackson repeatedly denied sexually molesting boys. In 2003, after a young boy named Gavin Arvizo came forward, Jackson was charged with seven felony counts of child molestation and two felony counts of seducing by providing alcohol to a minor under the age of 14. Jackson faced up to 20 years in prison. Despite a mountain of evidence, in June 2005 a jury acquitted Jackson of all charges. Jackson eventually paid out nearly $200 million in hush money to as many as 20 sexual assault victims, lawyers said.
Nearly 7 years after Jackson’s death from an overdose of the powerful anesthetic Propofol, RadarOnline has obtained never-before-seen reports from the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department which show the depths of Jackson’s depravity and strongly suggest he not only was a pedophile, he had reveled in sadism.
RadarOnline reports, June 20, 2016, that the reports detail what sheriff’s deputies found in November 2003 when, armed with search warrants, they raided Jackson’s Neverland Ranch in Los Olivos, Calif., as part of a continuing child sex abuse investigation.
The police found a stockpile of porn collection — which included pornographic photos, magazines and videos of men, women, boys and girls; and images of child and animal torture, S&M and gore — as well as drugs to treat sex addiction, with multiple prescriptions written by physicians.
Below is a screenshot I took of an image in page 6 of the report:
At the time, then District Attorney Tom Sneddon and his team wrote in their charges against Jackson: “The materials described … are relevant to the issues of the defendant’s intent and his method of ‘grooming’ young boys to satisfy his lewd desires.”
A private investigator with direct knowledge of the raids said: “The detectives’ report cites Michael even used sexy photos of his own nephews, who were in the band 3T, in their underwear to excite young boys.”
An investigator in the case told Radar, “The documents collected by the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department paint a dark and frightening picture of Jackson. 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,” and transsexuals — “chicks with d–ks”.
In their report, authorities described photos of children bleeding, in pain and tormented, including:
- A particularly sick photo of a child holding what appears to be a dead goose bludgeoned to death.
- A deeply disturbing photo of a murdered child beauty queen JonBenet Ramsey look-alike with a noose around her neck, in a book titled Room to Play, by Simen Johan. (Below is the screenshot I took of the image in page 11 of the report.)
The source added: “Michael Jackson had truly perverse sexual appetites, and the twisted photos tell a sadistic side of him that nobody really knew.”
Former Santa Barbara Senior Assistant District Attorney Ron Zonen, who helped prosecute Michael, told Radar: “A lot of this stuff was used to desensitize the children, and Michael admitted taking one child after another into bed with him for long periods of time. We identified five different boys, who all made allegations of sexual abuse. There’s not much question in my mind that Michael was guilty of child molestation.”
Since his death at age 50 on June 25, 2009, Jackson’s estate has raked in over $2 billion — and the sick material uncovered in his house of horrors could come back to haunt his heirs if other sexual assault victims come forward.

As a result of our former host-server WordPress unilaterally and without warning or notification taking down Fellowship of the Minds, this post was burnt, along with thousands of other posts. I retrieved this post from “Draft” this morning, but the images are lost and the links to Radar Online are dead.
I found this update on Huffington Post:
UPDATE (June 22, 2016): The Santa Barbara Sheriff’s Office released a statement to Billboard explaining that “The documents with a header titled Sheriff’s Department that contain a case number appear to be Sheriff’s Office documents.”
The majority of the 88-page report consists of documents with a Sheriff’s Department header and case number, however, the authenticity of the few photographs and images included alongside those documents is harder to assess. “The photos that are interspersed appear to be some evidentiary photos taken by Sheriff’s investigators and others are clearly obtained from the internet,” the Sheriff’s Office said.
