Michael Jackson's full autopsy report was released following the filing of involuntary manslaughter charges on Monday against the singer's personal doctor. Following are some notable or new highlights of the Los Angeles County Coroner's report into Jackson's June 25 death.

--Jackson died of “acute propofol intoxication" administered at a level equivalent to that used during anesthesia for “major surgery". A consultant anesthesiologist said there were “no reports of its use in insomnia relief."

--None of the recommended monitoring, precision dosing or resuscitation equipment was present in Jackson's room.

--Jackson had the skin pigmentation disorder vitiligo, with white patches particularly on his chest, abdomen, face and arms.

--The hair on Jackson's head was described initially by police as “sparse and connected to a wig." The autopsy revealed “frontal balding".

--A bandage was present on the tip of Jackson's nose.

--A closed bottle of urine was found on a chair in the bedroom where the singer died, along with a box of catheters, disposable needles, alcohol pads, several empty orange juice bottles, a string of wooden beads and a green oxygen tank.

--On Aug 6, a month before his burial, police went to the mortuary where his body was being held to collect hair samples for toxicology tests. The casket was described as yellow with a blue lining and Jackson was wearing a long, dark wig. “Moving the wig revealed short, dark, curly natural hair...measuring approximately one and a half inches in length."

--Jackson's body was covered with small scars on his nose, knee, shoulder, neck, wrists, and behind both ears.

--He had dark tattoos near both eyebrows and a small pink tattoo near his lips.

--His body weighed 136 pounds, was 69 inches long, and was described as “thin."

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
