A new video reveals the moment Michael Jackson ‘s home was raided amid claims the singer had stockpiled hundred of images showing pornography in a bid to seduce young boys.
Around 70 members of Santa Barbara County District Attorney’s Office and Sheriff’s Department raided the singer’s home in the November 2003 raid, and now footage shows officers storming each room at his Neverland Ranch.
From his famous mannequins in each room, to his arcade room and even his bedroom, the musician’s home is revealed in full in the clip.
The footage then shows a hidden closet at the back of the bedroom – which was reportedly kept locked with three deadlocks.
It has been widely reported that a previously unseen police document claimed there were at least seven collections which showed boys in their teenage years – and in some cases younger – fully nude or partially clothed in Jackson’s bedroom.
One of the collections, Taormina Wilhelm Von Gloeden, is described in court papers as: ‘Nude photos of teenage boys from late 1800s.’
In the report officers are also said to have discovered photos and videos of men, women, boys and girls in s*xual positions, drugs to treat s*x addiction, with multiple prescriptions written by a number of physicians for people close to the star.
More than 70 members of the Santa Barbara County District Attorney’s Office and Sheriff’s Department raided the home while Jackson was in Las Vegas.
It came at the same time an arrest warrant had been issued for the singer which saw Jackson later turn himself into police when he returned to California.
