London: Michael Jackson`s father has renewed calls for a federal probe into his son’s death based on his belief that a conspiracy was at work.
Joe Jackson, in Madrid to promote a worldwide tour of the hit Spanish musical Forever King Of Pop, said he believes Dr Conrad Murray was acting on behalf of other people involved in Michael`s career and said the late singer had warned his family he would be killed over the publishing rights to hit songs such as ‘Thriller’ and ‘Billie Jean’.
"I want to get the other people that`s involved, not just Dr Murray. That`s why I`m trying to get a federal investigation, so they can grab them all," the Scotsman quoted Joe as saying.
He characterized Murray as ‘just the fall guy’, but refused to say who else he thought might be to blame for the death of his superstar son.
"I’m not calling names, but they know who they are. Michael knew that something was going to happen to him before it happened," said Joe.
