The singer will rest in the Great Mausoleum, which includes Hollywood legends such as Clark Gable, Jean Harlow and W.C. Fields.
Jackson’s death at the age of 50 has been ruled a homicide by the Los Angeles County Coroner’s office. The singer’s death certificate has been amended, citing “injection by another” as the fatal injury.
