Michael Jackson's Funeral in Glendale: Exclusive Photos from the Scene

L.A. Weekly photographer Ted Soqui made his way to Glendale last night to cover the internment of Michael Jackson's body at the Forest Lawn Cemetery. He wasn't the only one. Though the service was private, MJ diehards were out in full force to catch one final glimpse of the fallen King of Pop -- or at least be in his presence -- before he was vaulted away.
