The macabre auction item goes under the hammer at Julien’s Auctions Gallery in Beverly Hills, California on December 17.
The valuable items up for sale from the King of Pop’s private collection of fine art and furnishings include Asian ceramic jardinières and 18th and 19th century French style furniture.
However, out of the entire auction, the lot expected to get most attention, and therefore sell for the highest price, is the very bed where Jackson was found unconscious by his personal physician Dr Conrad Murray on June 25, 2009.
Paramedics called to the scene say Michael Jackson was already dead when they arrived. So, this is Jackson’s deathbed that is up for sale.
Murray was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter forgiving Jackson the powerful anesthetic propofol, which is usually only used to sedate patients for surgery. That was deemed the main cause of the singer’s death.
Now Conrad Murray (58) awaits sentencing in jail. He faces up to four years in prison and the loss of his medical licence following the conviction. He had denied the charges but the jury unanimously found him guilty.
Now, some of Michael Jackson’s belongings, including the deathbed, are being sold off in an auction named after Jackson’s address: 100 North Carolwood Drive.
Even if you can’t afford to buy anything, you can see Michael Jackson’s belongings and deathbed, if you wish. Entry to the exhibition of the auction lots will be free and open to the public from December 12.
