Michael Jackson's family to present 'smoking gun' evidence

Michael Jackson's family will receive his late manager's laptop today (07.08.13), which they hope will be the "smoking gun" evidence in their wrongful death lawsuit against AEG Live.

The late King of Pop's mother Katherine Jackson and her lawyers hope the computer will contain bombshell evidence which proves her case against the concert promoters, who she claims are responsible for Michael's death by hiring Conrad Murray, the doctor that administered him with a deadly dose of Propofol.

The computer is currently in the possession of Frank's daughter Belinda DiLeo, who last week was ordered by a court to hand over the device to Katherine's lawyers by today - stemming from a subpoena filed for the laptop at the start of the trial in April - or face prison for contempt of court.

A source told the New York Post newspaper: "First she said she didn't have it, but then she miraculously found it, and she's handing it in on Monday."

It's believed Frank - who worked alongside Michael until his death in June 2009, and died two years later himself - was one of the 'Thriller' singer's closest confidantes and knew potentially incriminating details relating to Michael's deal with AEG, some of which he documented in an unpublished memoir before his death.

A source said: "Frank knew where all the bodies were buried. If there are new emails on his computer, or a copy of his book, it could rip the trial wide open."

Meanwhile, AEG's lawyer Marvin Putnam insists the new evidence is "yet another attempt by plaintiffs to distract the press with a sideshow".
