Evan Chandler, dad of boy who accused Michael Jackson of molestation, commits suicide in New Jersey

The father of a boy who accused Michael Jackson of molestation in 1993 blew out his brains in his luxury New Jersey apartment, cops said Tuesday.

Evan Chandler, 65, whose son received a multimillion-dollar settlement from the King of Pop, was discovered in his 16th- floor waterfront pad in Jersey City with his gun still in his hand.

Chandler took his own life Nov. 5, Jersey City police spokesman Stan Eason said. The concierge of Chandler's building found the body.

"He [Chandler] was on his bed still holding the weapon with a single gunshot wound to the head," Eason said. "It's straightforward. Case closed. It's suicide."

Chandler had been extremely ill and was scheduled to see a hematologist on the day he committed suicide, Eason said.

When Chandler didn't show up for the medical appointment, his doctor called the concierge to go check on him, Eason said.

"There was medication found in [Chandler's apartment] consistent with a serious illness," Eason said.

He said Chandler did not leave a suicide note.

In 1993, Chandler's son, who was then 13, accused Jackson of molesting him at the pop icon's Neverland Ranch in California.

The allegations first surfaced after Evan Chandler, a former Beverly Hills dentist, administered Amytal sodium, known as truth serum, to his son.

The case never went to trial, and a civil suit filed by Evan Chandler and his son was withdrawn after Jackson paid the family $20 million.

Jackson, who died in June from a prescription drug overdose, later said he settled to avoid the circus of a trial. He was acquitted of molesting a different boy in 2005.

In 2006, Chandler's son accused his father of attacking him with a barbell, choking him and spraying his face with Mace. The charges were later dropped.

I just came back from seeing thriller live, i dunno if its just a UK thing but its a stage show of his music, but they put it on at a big arena. The atmosphere was so good, during heal the world everyone was waving thier hands in the air and we all held hands with the person next to us even if we didnt know them, it was crazy, but thats the power of MJ.
