Below is a timeline of Michael Jackson's life showing some of the stranger things that were said about him. I'm sure not all of them are true and unfortunately now he's dead I can't ask him so you will have to make your own mind up whether Jacko really was wacko. (He was)
After trying to stop gang violence previously in his career, Michael decides that if he can't "Beat It" he may as well join it and starts his own gang that shouts and runs around in car parks causing trouble.

Just before his big comeback tour, Michael is found dead, some people think he was murdered, others think it was fake and he is still around in a similar way to Elvis. Lets face it, with Michael's various faces over the years he could be anywhere and anyone now, your new neighbour, your teacher, the man stood behind you in the post office.
