Nearly seven years after the King of Pop’s death, RadarOnline.com has obtained never-before-seen reports from the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department that show the true depths of his depravity.
Authorities wrote the bombshell reports after dozens of sheriff’s deputies, armed with search warrants, raided Jackson’s secluded Neverland Ranch in Los Olivos, Calif., in November 2003.
The search was conducted as part of the continuing child sex abuse investigation against the Gloved One and turned up everything from Jackson’s twisted porn collection — which included filthy photos and videos of men, women, boys and girls in perverted positions — to drugs to treat sex addiction, with multiple prescriptions written by a variety of physicians for people close to the star.
One private investigator with direct knowledge of the raids said: “The detectives’ report cites Michael even used sexy photos of his own nephews, who were in the band 3T, in their underwear to excite young boys.”
The cops also searched a rented storage space after Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Detective Craig Bonner requested a warrant.
The warrant request for Shurgard Storage said investigators learned about the locker from witnesses who told them materials were moved into it after the investigation was launched.
Among materials seized, according to a report, were “notes, diaries, documents, photographs, audiotapes and videotapes,” along with more than 80 video recordings and computer hard drives.
“The documents collected by the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department paint a dark and frightening picture of Jackson,” an investigator in the case told Radar.
“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,” said the source.
“He also had disgusting and downright shocking images of child torture, adult and child nudity, female bondage and sadomasochism.”
In their report, authorities described photos of children bleeding, in pain and tormented.
“There is one particularly sick photo of a child holding what appears to be a dead goose bludgeoned to death!” said an insider familiar with the report.
“In a book Jackson called Room to Play, there is a deeply disturbing photo of a [murdered child beauty queen] JonBenet Ramsey look-alike with a noose around her neck,” revealed the insider. “There were also photos and videos featuring sadomasochistic sex, bondage, transsexuals — ‘chicks with d–ks.’”
Porn magazines and videos with titles like “Hustler’s Barely Legal” and “Naughty Neighbors” were found in Jackson’s nightstand and bathroom, said the insider.
The source added: “Michael Jackson had truly perverse sexual appetites, and the twisted photos tell a sadistic side of him that nobody really knew.”
At the time, then District Attorney Tom Sneddon and his team wrote in their charges against Jackson: “The materials described … are relevant to the issues of the defendant’s intent and his method of ‘grooming’ young boys to satisfy his lewd desires.”
Former Santa Barbara Senior Assistant District Attorney Ron Zonen, who helped prosecute Michael, told Radar: “A lot of this stuff was used to desensitize the children, and Michael admitted taking one child after another into bed with him for long periods of time.
“We identified five different boys, who all made allegations of sexual abuse,” continued Zonen. “There’s not much question in my mind that Michael was guilty of child molestation.”
In 2003, the “Thriller” star was charged with seven felony counts of child molestation and two felony counts of providing an intoxicant to a minor under the age of 14 in order to seduce him.
Jackson was charged after a young boy, Gavin Arvizo, came forward.
The superstar faced up to 20 years in prison. Despite the mountain of evidence, a jury acquitted Michael of all charges in June 2005.
Before his death, the “Billie Jean” singer paid out nearly $200 million in hush money to as many as 20 sexual assault victims, lawyers said.
Since he died at age 50 on June 25, 2009, Jackson’s estate has raked in over $2 billion — and the sick material uncovered in his house of horrors could come back to haunt his heirs if other sexual assault victims come forward.
