According to CBS News, fans have left more than 18,000 roses outside the Jackson’s mausoleum at Forest Lawn Cemetery in California where he rests.

In November 2009, Jackson’s physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter for prescribing drugs that ultimately led to Jackson’s demise.

A jury of seven men and five women took two days to come to the verdict. Although Murray was charged with the lowest possible homicide offense, Judge Michael Pastor denied probation and gave Murray the maximum sentence of four years in prison.

On the 10th anniversary of his death, fans and celebrities alike are paying tribute to the iconic singer on social media. In fact, #RIPMICHAELJACKSON is currently a trending topic on Twitter.

The Jackson family, Steve Harvey, Pete Rock, Van Lathan and Chuck D are just a few of the many who are acknowledging the platinum-selling artist.
