Michael Jackson seen all over
The guy may be dead, but he's showing up all over the place. has a few blurry pictures of the back of someone who vaguely resembles Jackson. They offer this as proof that Jackson faked his death.

A family in Stockton, California have noticed an image of Michael Jackson in a tree stump in their front yard. They swear the image only appeared on the day he died. (I'm not seeing anything at all.)

Then there's the ghost of Michael Jackson, which you can see in the video below. To me, it looks like someone's shadow.

Did you know about the 'sighting in the clouds'?

They did this for business.It is an insult to Michael Jackson.

As far as the tree stump is concerned, they may be seeing a part of Michael Jackson in it, but I'm not entirely sure it's his FACE, if you catch my drift.

"proof that Jackson faked his death"

I'm not too sure that he didn't fake his life...

Actually, the ghost image is kind of weird. It moves independently of the camera's motion and any apparent moving lights. It seems to be reflected in the floor. But the shape itself doesn't have any motion, so my guess is it's some hanging object swinging swinging in front of a light. But not the camera crew's light, it seems to be one of the lights down the hallway being blocked out by something.

Tree Michael:
Michael looked pretty strange after all that cosmetic surgery, but I never thought he looked like the stump of a sawed-off tree branch.

Neverland shadow:
Obviously, this is the real thing. MJ's ghost is haunting Neverland, and he won't go on to his eternal rest until we all sing "Billie Jean" very loudly for 24 continuous hours.

They may be on to something, if you agree with their premise that Michael Jackson is the only skinny person with long dark hair in the entire world.
