Michael Jackson will be buried Saturday, Aug. 29, on what would have been his 51st birthday
Two months have gone by since the "King of Pop" died suddenly in late June, but it has also taken that long for investigators to release the details of what killed him.
Police are calling it a homicide and court records unsealed this week reveal Jackson died of a lethal amount of the powerful anesthesia Propofol.
But that drug was just one of many prescription medications found in Jackson's system, causing some to say the report is more proof the late entertainer was addicted to prescription drugs.
Still others have said Jackson's story might just be a reflection of a deeper, broader problem impacting American culture today.
