Some 11,000 flower arrangements were placed by fans near the tomb of Michael Jackson, to mark the King of Pop’s 3rd year death anniversary. Spontaneously, the thousands of flower arrangements were deposited near the mausoleum of Jackson in Forest Lawn Memorial Park by fans and other envoys from as far away as Russia, Japan and Italy.
In the cemetery located in the city of Glendale, a suburb north of downtown Los Angeles, also were placed teddy bears, posters and cards with inscriptions to honor the King of Pop who died at the age of 50, last June 25, 2009, after suffering a cardiac arrest at his rented mansion in Holmby Hills.
The death was caused by an overdose of medicine prescribed from his personal physician, Conrad Murray, to address his insomnia and chronic pain. Conrad Murray, who was brought to trial for medical malpractice, was convicted of manslaughter and is being held in jail in Los Angeles, where he is serving a sentence of four years in prison.
