Since his death two years ago, La Toya has always believed that Michael’s death was caused by murder with Dr. Conrad Murray as the fall guy of a conspiracy targeting MJ 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.”
La Toya goes on to reveal that her brother told her that he was being targeted because of his publishing rights to a massive catalog of music, which included works by [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]The Beatles[/lastfm].
“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 MJ’s death was part of a conspiracy by a group of people coming after him, including a high-powered entertainment lawyer, and has her own theories of a murder plot.

“Michael had fired John Branca. He didn’t want him around,” she said, adding that her brother then “hired a private investigator.”
“Then he found out John Branca had smuggled… $150-million off-shore of his money and he just started investigating,” she added. “I’m not blatantly saying they killed him. This was a conspiracy to do this to him.”
So what do you believe…do you think La Toya’s theories on Michael’s death have any truth to them or is her conspiracy theory of a murder plot targeting her iconic brother too crazy to believe?
