The body of the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, is undergoing new autopsy, which began at the request of the family. The first survey, conducted Friday (26) in forensic medicine institute in Los Angeles, ended with no conclusive data on the cause of his death.

The first autopsy did not suggest a crime, and reinforces the view that the cardiac arrest occurred by excessive intake of analgesics. Doctors are awaiting the reports of toxicology tests, which can take up to six weeks.

Michael Jackson's death also marks the beginning of a likely court battle to decide who gets custody of three children, ages 12, 11 and 7 years. Currently they are with the nanny, Grace Rwaramba, and with her grandmother, Catherine.

The nurse Debbie Rowe, with whom Michael had the first two children, has indicated its intention to go to court to seek guardianship of children. Two sponsors have also expressed interest in staying with the three boys.

Since the star died, there was an explosion in the singer's album sales worldwide. With a heritage that includes half of the rights of Beatles songs, valued at $ 1 billion. Michael also left a debt of $ 500 million to the heirs. A will written on it should only be opened in the coming days.
