The father of the boy who once accused Michael Jackson of molestation has committed suicide, authorities said Tuesday.
Beverly Hills dentist Evan Chandler, 65, was found dead in Jersey City, N.J., in a luxury waterfront apartment.
A Jersey City official said Chandler was found in bed with a single gunshot wound to his head. He was still holding the gun when the body was found.
A source confirmed the death, which occurred on Nov. 5.
Police said it does not appear that he left behind a suicide note.
The former dentist and aspiring screenwriter had several cosmetic procedures, rendering him virtually unrecognizable from the way he looked since the Jackson matter, a family source said.
In the early 1990s, Chandler reported Jackson to the authorities in both Los Angeles and Santa Barbara, claiming the King of Pop molested his son, Jordan, who was just 13 at the time.
