(Newser) Radar Online claims to have obtained official documents depicting the “images of pornography, animal torture, S&M, and gore” that Michael Jackson allegedly used while molesting children at Neverland Ranch. “The documents exposed Jackson as a manipulative, drug-and-sex-crazed predator who used blood, gore, sexually explicit images of animal sacrifice, and perverse adult sex acts to bend children to his will,” Radar quotes an anonymous investigator as saying. The images apparently included child pornography, even "sexy" pictures of Jackson's nephews in their underwear, Jezebel reports. There were also images of "child torture" and children's faces superimposed on adult bodies. According to Vanity Fair, these types of images are used to make children easier to abuse.

Radar claims it got the documents from the Santa Barbara Sheriff's Office. A sheriff's office spokesperson tells the Los Angeles Times that some of the documents "appear to be copies of reports" from the sheriff's office. But others look like they were taken off the internet or from some other source. The spokesperson notes that sheriff's office documents have case numbers on them. The sheriff's office denies releasing any documents. Jackson was charged with child molestation in 2003, with his cache of pornography allegedly discovered that same year. He was acquitted in 2005 after, according to Jezebel, paying $200 million in "hush money" to at least 20 people. Jackson died in 2009. (Click to see what Paris Jackson has to say about this report.)
