Michael Jackson's hairline and eye makeup were tattooed into his body and he weighed 136 pounds when he died of "acute propofol intoxication," according to his just released autopsy report. The singer was killed by a level of the drug usually only seen in major surgery, CNN reports. None of the recommended monitoring or resuscitation equipment was found in Jackson's bedroom, according to the report, which was unsealed after Jackson's doctor was charged with involuntary manslaughter.

The hair on Jackson's head was "sparse and connected to a wig," the report states. He suffered from the skin disease vitiligo, with white patches concentrated on his face, torso, and arms. Jackson's scalp was tattooed over "frontal balding," according to the autopsy. He had dark tattoos near both eyebrows and a small pink tattoo near his lips.
