Deceased pop superstar Michael Jackson's body may have been covered with puncture wounds and tattoos, but he was in fairly good health when he died. The Los Angeles County coroner's report, leaked on Thursday, shows that despite his arthritis, lung inflammation and other mild afflictions, Jackson's major internal organs were in good working order. However, according to the document, the lung condition was not serious enough to be a direct or contributing cause of death. Jackson died at his rented Los Angeles mansion June 25 after his personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, administered the anesthetic propofol and two other sedatives to get the chronic insomniac to sleep, court documents state. Propofol, normally a surgical anesthetic used in operating rooms, acts as a respiratory depressant and requires constant monitoring.
