Michael Jackson’s cousin, Marsha Stewart, claimed that she has Michael Jackson’s last IV drip bag—the one that was used to administer the large dose of Propofol that resulted in Michael Jackson’s death.
Marsha first displayed this piece of memorabilia on YouTube in August.
Marsha said that she snatched the IV from the rented Holmby Hills mansion where Michael Jackson died and the traces of Michael’s blood left on the IV prompted her to keep it; however, she recently decided that she was ready to part with this valuable item and put it up for auction through Memorabilia Expert Auctions.
Due to the traces of blood remaining in the tubes, Marsha claimed that Michael Jackson’s DNA is still in the bag.
A statement in the description of the item on Memorabilia Expert Auctions suggests that the IV very well maybe one that was used to administer Propofol to Michael Jackson; however, it’s unlikely that it was the one that was used to administer his fatal dose of Propofol.
We’d like to think it’s real, but who really knows. It seems a bit odd that the police wouldn’t have collected the IV during the time of Michael’s death as a piece of evidence for the crime scene.
Although listed with a starting price of $2,500, it was sold for $4,791.60.
