Jackson comes alive on website

The website www.michaeljacksonhoaxforum.com claims the Thriller hitmaker is appearing on TV talkshows as Dave, 33, a man who suffered severe facial disfigurement after his father set him on fire. However, lawyer Brian Oxman, who acts as Dave’s spokesman, dismissed the rumours.

“The stories that have surfaced on the blogs concerning Michael Jackson still being alive are part of the worldwide grief that everyone whoever loved Michael Jackson now feels. He was so remarkable that people find it difficult to believe he is no longer with us. They long for him to remain a part of our lives,” he said.

Dave, born in New York in 1983, survived a terrifying attack by his father and suffered 90 per cent burns when he was six years. His mother Marie once took him to Michael Jackson’s Neverland ranch as a treat, and the singing legend took lot of interest in him. “He befriended me. He took me into his life, which is very rare for Michael to do. But he opened up his arms to me and accepted me as a very good friend of his. And throughout the years, he never let me go,” Dave, who is currently studying in Utah, had said earlier. Many bloggers feel Dave’s high-pitched voice bears a remarkable resemblance to the pop icon’s and observers claim his eyes have changed colour from his previous blue/green to brown.

“There’s no doubt Michael Jackson is still alive. We have the evidence, now we want to let everyone know,” one web forum regular said. His extensive facial scarring is seen as a perfect cover for Jackson’s surgically modified face.
