A new report on Radar Online claims that Michael Jackson had in his possession a treasure trove of nude photos of both children and adults, many of which included photos of sadomasochistic activities, such as bleeding.
Radar Online claims that they got their hands on documents from 2003 that list items collected by the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department when they searched Michael Jackson’s home in connection with the famous allegations against him that he engaged in child molestation.
“The documents exposed Jackson as a manipulative, drug-and-sex-crazed predator who used blood, gore, sexually explicit images of animal sacrifice and perverse adult sex acts to bend children to his will,” a source told Radar Online.
“He also had disgusting and downright shocking images of child torture, adult and child nudity, female bondage and sadomasochism.”
According to the website, which had their theory corroborated by Former Santa Barbara Senior Assistant District Attorney Ron Zonen, Jackson allegedly would use the scandalous photos and videos to show off to younger children.
“A lot of this stuff was used to desensitize the children, and Michael admitted taking one child after another into bed with him for long periods of time,” Zonen told Radar Online.
After police collected the evidence, Jackson was charged with 9 counts related to the seduction and molestation of children.
A jury later acquitted him of all charges.
In a 2005 interview with NBC, Zonen explained that he was surprised about the final verdict.
“I went into this trial hoping he would be convicted of at least one of the most serious charges and believed that that was a possibility, up until the time that they read the verdict,” Zonen said.
For the last few years of his life, rumors of his alleged child molestation and a crippling drug habit would plague Jackson.
In 2009, he died of an accidental drug overdose.
