More than 300 pages of files that the Federal Bureau of Investigation kept on Michael Jackson, who died on June 25, were released by the bureau on Tuesday, detailing its investigations into charges of child molestation that were brought against the singer as well as extortion threats that were made against Mr. Jackson, right, in 1992. The files, released in response to a Freedom of Information Act request made by several news organizations, describe Mr. Jackson as “a celebrity pop star” and document how the bureau aided California law enforcement agencies when he was investigated for a child molestation case in 1993 that never went to trial and in a second such case from 2004 in which Mr. Jackson was acquitted. The files also describe another child molestation investigation by the bureau in late 2004 that was closed when a witness, the file said, “advised the agents that he had no interest in testifying against” Mr. Jackson and “would legally fight any attempt to do so.”
