The King of Pop will finally be laid to rest.

The King of Pop, Michael Jackson, will be buried in Forest Lawn Cemetery in Los Angeles at 10 a.m. on Aug. 29 on what would have been his 51st birthday, Joe Jackson told Steve Friess, the Daily News’ man in Las Vegas.


Michael’s Father,Joe Jackson, indicated that the burial plans had been made final just in the past few days. He says he will return to Vegas after his son is buried that Saturday to receive a celebrity star in the singer’s honor at the Brenden Theatres, a cinema at the Palms that Michael Jackson and his children frequented.

Jackson said he supports the Los Angeles Police Department probe into his son’s June 25 death so far – but also said that cops may be making Dr. Conrad Murray “the fall guy for a whole lot of people.”

Murray was Michael Jackson’s personal doctor and with him the day he died. Murray’s lawyer has confirmed the Vegas-based doc is being investigated for administering the anesthetic Propofol and possibly other drugs. He denies wrong doing.
