In any event, it’s been relatively quiet the past week or so…in fact, when you live in the area you don’t really think about the fact that you are passing the Jackson family home. You just drive. The funny thing is that I’ve lived in Encino for 10 years, driven up and down Havenhurst about a thousand times, and until Michael’s death, never knew the family lived there. It was only when the entire street shut down with about 50 news vans, that I saw exactly where the home was. Yesterday, there was some security around the gate — a guard, a police car, and a small group congregated just down the road. No media circus…for once.
It’s a sad story and it was actually nice to see that, for the most part, people stayed away and left the Jackson family alone so they could bury their son, brother, father, uncle.
