In her very first interview since the death of her brother Michael Jackson, LaToya bluntly told U.K.'s News of the World that "Michael was murdered."
In her four-hour exclusive interview in L.A., she said, "We don't think just one person was involved in the murder. It was a conspiracy to get Michael's money."
The 53-year-old also recalled how the pop legend feared for his own life saying, "A couple of years ago Michael told me he was worried that people were out to get him. He said, 'They're gonna kill me for my publishing. They want my catalogues and they're gonna kill me for these.'"
And she revealed, "Michael was being inappropriately treated by people who got him hooked on drugs. He had many needle marks on his neck and on his arms, and more about those will emerge in the next few weeks. But nothing has changed my mind that this was murder."
