The man whose son derailed Michael Jackson’s career with blockbuster accusations of molestation is dead of an apparent suicide.

Evan Chandler

Evan Chandler, 65, the father of the young boy who alleged that he was molested by Michael Jackson in 1994 Chandler was found dead on his bed with a single gunshot wound to his head and a gun in his hand in what they believe was suicide. Police were sent to check on the gravely ill Chandler after he’d missed a doctor’s appointment.

Chandler was the driving force behind a 1994 child-molestation case, telling Santa Barbara authorities that the singer had sexually abused his then 13-year-old son, Jordan, during sleepovers at Neverland Ranch.

The allegations sparked an investigation that led Jackson, in an effort to clear his name, to voluntarily allow his genitalia to be photographed as evidence. Before the case could ever go to trial however, the attorneys eventually convinced the King of Pop to settle with the Chandlers for an undisclosed amount that was rumored to be $20 million.

As for the elder Chandler, he eventually had numerous cosmetic surgeries that radically altered his appearance ostensibly to avoid the constant opprobrium from Jackson fans.
