The Santa Barbara courts yesterday released more information about what
items were seized in two searches relating to the Michael Jackson child
abuse case. The information release is probably an attempt to quell growing
media appetite for any legal documents relating to the Jacko allegations.
The paperwork shows that during that high profile raid on Jacko's Neverland
ranch last year police took phone records, pop videos and a DVD of a party
from his home. A subsequent search on another property (probably the home of former Jacko producer Marc Schaffel) at the end of Jan added computers,
photos, videos, three videos of Jackson on compact disc and a DVD of a party
at Neverland to the prosecution's evidence pile. Whether any of that haul

Elsewhere in Jacko news, Michael has launched a new website which aims to
give the singer an official route to communicate with fans and media as the circus that will surround his trial takes off later this year.
Commenting on http://www.MJJSource.com, Jacko writes: "I am very excited
about using MJJSource.com as a way to communicate with both my fans around
the world, and the media. I have become disturbed and troubled as a result of people speaking on my behalf whom I do not know. For months, I have
listened to reports that are inaccurate because they have been based on hearsay, and not fact. I have also listened, with amazement, to people who have misrepresented their relationships with me. I will use this site as one of the mediums for speaking out on my own behalf."
