London: Michael Jackson’s sister LaToya has claimed that her brother was murdered for his catalogue.
LaToya said that the singer’s was killed because he was "worth so much more dead than alive.”
She also insisted the Thriller singer`s relatives and fans now deserve "the truth" about his death.
"I never had a doubt. You must remember from the day that I found out that Michael was no longer with us, when my mother screamed `he`s dead` on the phone, I just went into this, `Who did it`?" the Mirror quoted her as saying in an television interview.
"He was murdered for his catalogue and they knew that, and they knew Michael was much more, worth so much more dead than alive.
"His children deserve the truth. I think his parents deserve the truth, his family and his fans.
"Personally I think it is a slap in the face, not just to Michael but to the entire family. It`s totally unfair, it`s wrong and it was not an accident," she added.
