MJ final visit to Neverland
will be making one final visit to his beloved Neverland.
The Santa Barbara Sheriff’s Department has just confirmed to E! News that plans are under way to hold a memorial service at the famed estate/amusement park in the hills outside Santa Barbara.
“Our guys are meeting as we speak with the California Highway Patrol to discuss the security issues,” says Lt. Butch Arnoldi, a department spokesman.
Sources close to the family say that there will be some kind of public memorial over the holiday weekend, perhaps with Jackson’s body lying in state.
The body is expected to be transported from Los Angeles on Thursday. A public viewing will take place Friday and a private memorial service will be held on Sunday.
“Our role will primarily be traffic, but also crowd control,” adds Arnoldi. “We will also be making sure there is no trespassing on neighboring ranches and stuff like that. We would be stationed on the perimeter of the house. The actual roadway will be the responsibility of the CHP.”
Jackson’s brothers Jackie, Jermaine and Tito visited the grounds over the weekend and earlier Tuesday a delivery truck was spotted dropping off boxes at Neverland.
