This sighting was actually six years ago but to this day it haunts me. There were tons of witnesses and just read the details. It really seems like a valid sighting. You can read the actual email of the eye-witness at Michael Jackson Sightings
Well the simple answer is yes. Michael had enough money and connections to fake his death. He was a master of disguise and an entertainer on the level of Houdini. Someone who loved executing grand plans.
No one knows for sure if Michael is alive except Michael himself. We believe he has been sending clues. He has purposefully been seen at certain remote locations and left certain musical and visual clues to tell the fans that he is OK.
Sometimes you just have to get away from it all.
