LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Today marks a somber anniversary for the world of pop.

Five years ago, Michael Jackson passed away from a drug overdose.

Investigators found he died from a powerful drug cocktail of surgical anesthetic and various sedatives administered by his doctor. Despite his death in 2009, a new studio album of Jackson's unreleased tracks was issued by Epic Records and MMJ Music in May.

He was 50 years old at the time of his death.
