Portugal - (ReUterus): "If necessary we'll exhume the body!"
Those were the stark words of warning from investigators probing an international paedophile ring as they boarded a plane for Elcino, California armed with a writ demanding the immediate release of Michael Jackson's DNA.
The move follows the breakdown of 'sweetheart' deals done by former Bush Administration officials between financial backers of the Find Maddie! campaign, the FBI and the American music industry.
Interpol forensics reported last week that despite trawling through every known child sex offender's DNA profile the glaring omission of Jackson data remains suspicious.
"Someone in the last days of the Bush presidency ordered the destruction of the State of California's paedo records," a police source commented.
"Find that asshole and you've got your answer!"
