jackoauto200.jpgLOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - The Los Angeles County Coroner's office has released the cause of Michael Jackson's death, and they say that the king of pop suffered "acute Propofol intoxication." The report also states that other conditions contributing to death included the use of Benzodiazepines, a group of drugs taken to treat anxiety and insomnia.

It should come as no surprise that the manner of death was ruled as a homicide, and though the coroner did not release the full autopsy report, they did issue a press release:

"The drugs Propofol and Lorazepam were found to be the primary drugs responsible for Mr. Jackson's death. Other drugs detected were: Midazolam, Diazepam, Lidocaine and Ephedrine."
