The FBI last week, in response to Freedom of Information Act requests, released their investigation files on the King of Pop dating back nearly 20 years.
According to the New York Post and the National Enquirer,Â the FBI firstÂ probedÂ child molestation allegations againstÂ Michael Jackson in 1993. One document in the file said the agency had proof that Jackson transportedÂ a minor across state lines for “immoral purposes.”
The files include allegations thatÂ Michael JackonÂ molested two Mexican boys inÂ the mid-1980s. And there is aÂ claim from a Canadian couple that saw JackonÂ on aÂ train with a boy he called “his cousin.”Â According to the documents, the woman told an FBI agent that she slept in an adjoining compartment and “heard questionable noises through wall”Â thatÂ prompted her toÂ notify the trainÂ conductor of her suspicions.
The files include details on aÂ anÂ extortion plotÂ by a man who sent letters to Michael JacksonÂ threatening to kill him.

Kind of scary to think that a government agency keeps such a close watch on a personÂ without ever arresting him. Any ideas of any other celebrity the FBI may be watching right now?Â
