Michael Jackson’s body for public viewing at Neverland?

'King of Pop''s remains will return to ranch on Thursday

The body of Michael Jackson is to be taken to Neverland Ranch on Thursday (July 2) for a public viewing on Friday.

It is rumoured that the singer’s body might be taken to his former home from Los Angeles in a glass coffin on a “fairytale carriage”, but members of Jackson‘s family are currently discussing details with the Californian Highway Patrol.

The ranch was purchased by the singer in 1987 and became famous for its elaborate amusement park and zoo. He lived there until 2005.


Jackson lost part of the ranch when he ran into financial difficulties in recent years, but still had a stake in it, according to CNN.

The family will hold a private memorial on Sunday at the ranch.

Jackson, who died after suffering cardiac arrest on June 25, left behind three children, Michael Joseph Jackson Jr, 12, Paris Michael Katherine Jackson, 11, and Prince Michael II, 7.
