Michael Jackson accuser's father found dead

Wednesday November 18, 2009

The father who publicly accused Michael Jackson of molesting his 13-year-old son has committed suicide.

Former dentist Evan Chandler, 65, was found in his bed on November 5 after shooting himself, it has been revealed.

In 1993, Mr Chandler accused the late king of pop on behalf of his 13-year-old son, Jordan.

After a 13-month investigation Michael reportedly settled the case out of court for $20 million, although he always denied the allegations against him.

Jordan Chandler (pictured with Michael) is now 29 and has never spoken publicly about the case.
