Police have revealed the disturbing discovery that in a department made back in 2003 when Michael Jackson’s home was first raided. Police say that they discovered a vast collection of pornography, some that included underage children.
The details of this police report remained hidden until now. The original search was conducted while Jackson was not home, according to police documents found by the Daily Mail.
In 2003, approximately 70 members of the Santa Barbara County District Attorney’s Office and Sheriff’s Department turning up to the residence.
The Daily Mail reports:
Many of these books and videos are also detailed in court papers from the time, submitted after a young boy came forward claiming that he had been sexually abused and assaulted by the singer on multiple occasions.
The police report claims that in Jackson’s bedroom and bathroom alone there were at least seven collections of work found by investigators that show boys in their teenage years – and in some cases younger – fully nude or partially clothed.
One of the collections, Taormina Wilhelm Von Gloeden, is described in court papers as: ‘Nude photos of teenage boys from late 1800s.’
The search of the home occurred in November of that year while Jackson was in Las Vegas, with 70 members of the Santa Barbara County District Attorney’s Office and Sheriff’s Department turning up to the residence.
An arrest warrant had been issued at that time as well, and Jackson later turned himself into police when he returned to California.
Radar Online first obtained the police report and court papers, and an investigator on the case told them: ‘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.’
The source added: ‘He also had disgusting and downright shocking images of child torture, adult and child nudity, female bondage and sadomasochism.’
The report states that many of the materials featuring naked men and women in the home could be used for the purpose of trying to attract young men.
After the descriptions for many of the materials, the investigator notes: ‘Based on my training, this type of material can be used as part of the “grooming” process, by which people (those seeking to molest children) lower the inhibitions of their intended victims and facilitate the molestation of said victims.’
These materials include ‘a book depicting nude children’ found in the singer’s ‘arcade room’; ‘a book which contained nude photographs of men’ in the ‘master bathroom’; and multiple books found in the ‘master bedroom’ that included one with ‘naked and semi-naked gay men’ and another with ‘pre-teen or early teenage individuals’ who in some cases were ‘nude or semi-nude.’
Radar spoke with Santa Barbara Senior Assistant District Attorney Ron Zonen about the case as he was part of the prosecution team that took on Jackson in court.
‘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,’ said Zonen.
‘We identified five different boys, who all made allegations of sexual abuse. There’s not much question in my mind that Michael was guilty of child molestation.’
In the end of the court cases, Michael Jackson was acquitted of all charges.
He then settled with one of the families that accused him of molesting their 13-year-old son. They received $22 million and never filed charges.
