Michael Jackson: Mourning an Icon

From his childhood home in Gary, Ind., to Moscow, fans around the world grieve the death of the King of Pop


Even before Michael Jackson was pronounced dead at 2:26 p.m. PST on Thursday, thousands of fans sang his songs and stood vigil outside L.A.'s Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. An autopsy will be conducted on the singer by the Los Angeles County Coroner on Friday, though some toxicology tests can take days or weeks to complete.
