Sources at the coroner’s office revealed that his brain was removed before his body was released to relatives two days after his death,last Tuesday.

The examination on Jackson’s brain cannot begin until at least two weeks after the death when the brain will harden sufficiently to slice it open.

Jackson’s family was given the choice to either wait for three weeks to reclaim the organ or to bury the star without his brain but they decided to go ahead with the funeral,which is scheduled to take place on Tuesday morning in the Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale,Los Angeles County.
