Michael Jackson looked "absolutely fabulous" when he was laid to rest last week in a mausoleum at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, Calif., says his sister La Toya.

In an interview airing Friday on ABC's 20/20, she says he was dressed in white pearl beads and a big gold belt, "like a belt that you win being a boxer."

"His hair was done beautifully," La Toya, 53, adds. "His makeup was done beautifully."

Among the items placed in the casket with him: A pair of sunglasses and a white glove.
Michael died June 25 at the age of 50. His death, caused by "acute propofol intoxication," has been ruled a homicide; several doctors are under investigation.
La Toya says she blames her brother's death on "any and everybody" who gave him drugs.


"They're doctors!" she says. "This is going against their license."

She adds that her brother was "special." 


"He wasn't God, but he was certainly God-like," she says. "He was the closest thing to a god that I knew."
