WARNING: Michael Jackson Autopsy Photo

(GettyImages.com)

In the most graphic testimony to date in the manslaughter trial of Dr. Conrad Murray, prosecutors just showed a photo of Michael Jackson‘s dead, naked body.

Editor’s Note: The image from today’s courtroom proceedings is available by clicking the red link below. However, we wanted to give our readers the option of not seeing it in the post itself.

Before the disturbing image was made public, jurors heard a recording of an interview Dr. Murray gave to police detectives in which he recalled the moment when he and an emergency room physician informed Katherine Jackson that her son had died.

Katherine had asked, “He’s not dead, is he?”

Learning that he had passed away, she broke down and wept.

The courtroom was then shown this photograph of Michael Jackson’s body on a hospital gurney in the moments following his death on June 25, 2009.

It’s obviously an upsetting image.

Do you think it’s fair for the prosecutors to show it?
