LOS ANGELES (AP) - Michael Jackson’s death certificate has been amended to reflect his cause of death as a homicide, specifying “injection by another” as the fatal injury. The designation was not a surprise - coroner’s officials said last week that they believed Jackson’s death on June 25 was a homicide. Investigators have said a mix of the powerful anesthetic propofol (PROH’-puh-fol) and another sedative killed the pop singer. The new record lists “acute propofol intoxication” as the main cause of death and “benzodiazepine (behn-zoh-dye-AZ’-uh-peen) effect” as another significant contributor. The public copy of Jackson’s death certificate has not been changed to reflect his permanent resting place. Jackson is scheduled to be interred on Thursday evening at Forest Lawn Glendale.
