Michael Jackson Aug 19 (IBNS) Even though her husband Joseph says their son will be buried on what would have been his 51st birthday (Aug. 29), Michael Jackson’s mother Katherine is considering a wrongful death lawsuit over her pop star son’s mysterious demise.

Authorities investigating Jackson’s death have been focusing on his personal physician Dr. Conrad Murray, who is suspected of giving a powerful anesthetic to the singer on the day he died.

“The possibility of a wrongful death action has been floated,” Katherine Jackson’s lawyer Burt Levitch said.

It comes as the singer’s father reportedly sparked confusion by saying the ‘King of Pop’ is to be buried - a week after a family lawyer said he had already been laid to rest.

Meanwhile, The New York Daily News said Joe Jackson, 80, revealed his son’s funeral is to take place on August 29 - what would have been his 51st birthday.

This was despite family lawyer Brian Oxman previously telling GMTV the pop star had been buried at the Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Hollywood, Los Angeles.

The Los Angeles County Coroner’s office has completed its post-mortem report but its findings remain sealed until police conclude their probe.
