Dr. Richard Shepherd analyses the official autopsy reports of various celebrities to determine their cause of death.
Forensic pathologist Dr Richard Shepherd separates fact from fiction as he investigates the cases of celebrities who died unexpectedly, beginning with pop superstar Michael Jackson, who left $400million in debts after his sudden death at 50 in 2009. The post-mortem reveals a severely ill man, plagued by complications from his many plastic surgeries, suffering from two rare skin conditions and riddled with arthritis. Jackson also had a bewildering number of drugs coursing through his system, bearing witness to a number of addictions that had spiralled out of control.
