Catherine Bach’s husband, Peter Lopez, former Michael Jackson lawyer, found dead in apparent suicide
Bach played Daisy Duke in the 1980s TV series “The Dukes of Hazzard.”
Lopez was Michael Jackson‘s music attorney for several years, according to Alfred Newman, a spokesman for the firm Lopez helped found, Kleinberg Lopez Lange Cuddy & Klein. He also represented The Eagles, Andrea Bocelli and Michael Buble.
Peter Lopez said he expected the toxicology report to be released in the near future.
The report has been completed but will not be made public while a police investigation is still ongoing.
Mr Lopez told Sky News: “We should hear within the next week. I believe the LAPD are doing a very thorough investigation.
Mr Lopez also feels his former client’s death could possibly have been avoided.
“I think it’s too early to say, we don’t have all the facts but he should not be dead, that’s pretty clear.
“Something went terribly wrong and we’ll find something out about that very shortly.”
The lawyer paid tribute to the detectives conducting the investigation into the King of Pop’s death, saying he realised they were in a very difficult situation and they were doing “terrific work” to make sure “the right results come out”.
DEA agents searched a pharmacy in Las Vegas earlier this week to find prescription documents for Jackson from his former doctor Conrad Murray.
“It’s been seven weeks since Michael died, it was announced the reports would be out in five to six weeks, so we are a couple of weeks beyond that which is an indication of the professionalism of the LAPD, making sure they get it right.”
They have also searched the doctor’s premises, and while he is not an official suspect, Dr Murray is the subject of a manslaughter investigation.
Mr Lopez also feels the media frenzy surrounding the singer’s death, as well as continuing questions over the paternity of his children, is irresponsible.
“I think it’s very unfortunate these sorts of things get talked about,” the lawyer said.
“The children are probably going to hear about these kind of scandalous things. They are bright, young, wonderful kids.
“It’s very hurtful and harmful to have this sort of talk out there, I think it’s a little irresponsible frankly.” http://news.sky.com/skynews/Home/Showbiz-News/Michael-Jackson-Death-Former-Lawyer-Peter-Lopez-Says-Toxicology-Report-Out-Within-Next-Week/Article/200908215360920
Michael Jackson recorded album of new music with Eddie (Angel) Cascio in November 2007: report
The King of Pop may be dead, but his music just got a new lease on life.
It turns out Michael Jackson recorded a new album of previously unreleased songs in the fall of 2007, Showbiz411.com reports.
The late musician spent three months in New Jersey with Eddie (Angel) Cascio, with whom he recorded the 12 new tracks.
Three of the titles on the album include “Breaking News,” “Burn Tonight” and “Water,” which can reportedly be heard in the recently released documentary “This Is It.”
The Cascio family even contributed a message to the booklet handed out at Jackson’s memorial service in July of last year.
‘We promise to always remain “The First Family of Love,” ‘ it said. “WE THANK YOU and will love you FOREVER and ALWAYS. ANGEL ‘Dr.Heat’ Cascio and the Cascio Family.”
The Jackson estate recently signed a deal with Sony to re-release previously recorded music, but the agreement does not include new material.
The news comes on the heels of Jackson’s “Thriller” video being voted as the most influential in pop music history in a MySpace poll.
