Was Michael Jackson’s Body Discovered at Neverland Ranch Years Before His Death in 2009?

A story in circulation claims that Michael Jackson’s body was discovered buried at the Neverland Ranch – years before the singer’s death in 2009. Is this real or fake?

The article is a humor piece written in 2005 by The Onion, a humorous website.

In the fictitious story we read:

Jackson’s corpse was buried just inches below a stretch of the miniature-train tracks that run throughout Neverland. The largely desiccated corpse wore the remains of a red, zipper-covered leather jacket and a single glove.

The story states that the “living Jackson” was the leading suspect for the murder of the original Michael Jackson. A complete read of the article is probably sufficient to convince most readers the story is not to be taken seriously. It concludes with a “quote” from a fan, who offered a “positive view of the grisly revelation.”

“This is very disturbing news,” Gustafson said. “But to be honest, it’s kind of a relief too. Thriller and Off The Wall are really amazing records. Now I can pull them out of my ‘ruined by child abuse’ storage bin and start listening to them again.”

It should be pointed out that this humorous piece was written four years before Jackson’s death in 2009.

In 2013, the story began circulating and was shared by many readers who are unaware of the humorous nature of The Onion.

Bottom Line

Michael Jackson’s body was not discovered at Neverland Ranch years before the singer’s death. That claim originates from a humorous piece published by The Onion in 2005.

  • the truth

    I agree with you all. The media would not report his death because they made too much money reporting the weirdness of the imposter “Michael” but the truth began to come out when the 02 confrence happened in 2009, a lot of people said he was a fake and now all of a sudden he died months later. It would not be surprising if he really died in the 80s, hope the truth comes out one day.
