Moreover, Orlando Martinez, Investigator of the Los Angeles Police Department, was also seen in the said trailer of the documentary movie, wherein he is making a bold statement, "There are a lot of people to blame that never had a retribution."

How did Micheal Jackson - the pop singer - die?

Ahead of the premiere of the TMZ documentary, read about the cause of Jackson's death. What do we know about the legendary singer's cause of death? It was due to cardiac arrest, right? Due to drug overdose, right? But what if there are some other factors that never caught attention?

Here is what we know for sure. Michael Jackson died on 25 June 2009 after he suffered from cardiac arrest in Holmby Hills (his rented house), Los Angeles. According to his 51-page autopsy report, the cardiac arrest happened due to an acute intoxication of propofol and benzodiazepine. The death was considered a homicide, and Conrad Murray, his personal physician, was brought under questioning. However, Conrad stated that he gave Michael the drugs (especially propofol) only to help him sleep. This again was speculated as propofol is not proven to help relieve insomnia. Conrad was ultimately sent to prison after a trial.
