With Michael Jackson's recent death, the Internet has been abuzz with searches for the Michael Jackson death photos. The phrase has become one of the single most searched terms in Internet history.
People are fascinated with celebrities and death. So when a celebrity dies, the public swarms around the event like no other.
Seeing how Michael Jackson was one of the most celebrated celebrities of all time, perhaps bigger than the King (Elvis) himself, it is not surprising that there has been a media frenzy around this event.
Pictures of Michael Jackson near or around his death are perhaps the public's way of coming to terms with the fact that he is no longer with us. It is similar to a wake or public viewing. People need to see to believe, and the photos are serving that purpose.
