She tells KTLA her brother was targeted for murder because of his power in the music industry.
“It was pure murder,” La Toya told KTLA on Wednesday. “I don’t care what anyone says. This was pure murder. This was a controversy. This was all manipulated.”
She says her brother knew he was being targeted and repeatedly mentioned it to her.
La Toya believes her brother’s publishing rights to a catalog of songs, including works by the Beatles, motivated his alleged killers.
“He hated the fact that he had the catalog and they were going to murder him for it. So he said, ‘I don’t want it, it’s not worth it.’ And then the other part of him would say, ‘No but it’s mine. I bought it outright and I’m keeping it growing. This is for my children. They can’t do this to me’,” La Toya said.
She says she immediately went to police following her brother’s death, but they would not look at other possible suspects besides Dr. Conrad Murray, Jackson’s personal physician.
