Tales from the Crypt
I conclude my blog week by writing about the late Michael Jackson who was finally laid to rest on September 3, 2009. Ten long weeks after his death, Michael Jackson’s coffin was placed in a mausoleum in the Forest Lawn Memorial Park, which is located outside of Los Angeles.
If reports are to be believed, his body has been placed in the Holly Terrace, which is a large hall at the centre of Forest Lawn’s monolithic grounds. Although the fascination of Michael Jackson will continue long after his death, the mausoleum is policed by private guards and is rumoured to be among the highest security resting places in the world.
There have been reports indicating that the price of grave-plots close to Michael Jackson’s tomb have gone up $2,000 – $3,000 in value since Michael Jackson joined the neighbourhood.
Some reports have indicated that some private parties have asked for substantially more, with one person rumoured to have asked for $34,000 for a double unit inside of the Michael Jackson mausoleum. Even after death, Michael is still making headlines, this time in the cemetery world.
Thank you for reading and I hope you have an enjoyable weekend!
