Report: Michael Jackson Had Disturbing Porn Stash at Neverland Ranch


Previously unreleased Sheriff’s reports on allegations of sexual abuse by Michael Jackson at his Neverland Ranch reveal Jackson kept a stash of gruesome pornography there, including “animal torture, S&M, and gore,” according to Radar Online.

In a piece published Tuesday, the entertainment news website states it recently obtained the reports, which were drafted in 2003 after Santa Barbara Sheriff’s deputies raided Jackson’s secluded Los Olivos ranch. Jackson would soon after be charged with sexual abuse, but was ultimately acquitted. Radar also quotes an unnamed investigator in the case who states: “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.”

Former Santa Barbara Senior Assistant District Attorney Ron Zonen, who helped prosecute Jackson, told Radar: “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.”

“We identified five different boys, who all made allegations of sexual abuse,” Zonen said. “There’s not much question in my mind that Michael was guilty of child molestation.” Zonen said the evidence seized by deputies could be used in a civil case against Jackson’s estate.

Asked if the reports published by Radar were authentic, Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Kelly Hoover confirmed that, “Some of the documents appear to be copies of reports that were authored by Sheriff’s Office personnel as well as evidentiary photographs taken by Sheriff’ Office personnel.” Specifically, she said, the documents with case numbers and headers titled “Sheriff’s Department” appear genuine. However, Hoover noted, some of the report’s content was clearly “obtained off the Internet or through unknown sources.” Hoover said the Sheriff’s Office never officially released the documents or photographs to the media, providing the materials only to the prosecution and the defense as part of the required discovery process.

Jackson died in 2009. Neverland Ranch is currently listed for sale with an asking price of $100 million.
