FBI's Michael Jackson files opened: Feds investigated King of Pop in two child molestation cases

The FBI investigated Michael Jackson for child molestation twice in 11 years - but charges were never brought, according to documents made public Tuesday.

The 333-page release of FBI papers spanned 1992 through 2004 also revealed:

* The FBI aided in Jackson molestation investigations in the Philippines and in London, where there was a report he made an X-rated call to a young fan.

* California prosecutors received help from the FBI's Behavioral Science Unit, the "profilers" used to track down serial killers, in their 2005 case against Jackson.

* In 1996, the FBI helped Customs officials investigate a video cassette marked "Michael Jackson's Neverland Favorites - An All Boy Video Anthology."

No charges were ever filed in that case.

The first molestation case investigated by the FBI dated to September 1993, when the Los Angeles field office was notified by the Los Angeles Police Department that Jackson was under investigation.

An FBI document at the time said there was a probe involving "Jackson concerning the transportation of a minor across state lines."

Federal prosecutors opted not to prosecute Jackson under the Mann Act and even declined to attend a meeting about the allegation, according to the documents.

The case never went to trial, and the FBI closed its investigation in August 1994. The documents did not name the child in question, but that same year, Jackson paid $20 million to settle molestation charges by Jordan Chandler, a 13-year-old boy he befriended.

The second case was opened in September 2004, when the FBI sent agents to interview a purported Jackson victim in New York.

"During the meeting, [he] advised the agents that he had no interest in testifying against Jackson," the FBI documents said.

"[He] advised that he would legally fight any attempt to do so. [He] believed he had done his part."

The case was closed due to lack of witness cooperation, the FBI said.

Again, the victim was not named and it's unclear if it was Chandler or another person.

The FBI probe came as California prosecutors were trying to build a case that Jackson had molested a 13-year-old cancer victim at his Neverland Ranch.

The international mega-star was acquitted of those charges in June 2005.

The documents were released after the Daily News and other media outlets filed Freedom of Information Act requests with the FBI regarding Jackson.

Of the pages the FBI released, 149 were linked to allegations of child molestation - the charges that derailed Jackson's career and helped change him from a chart-topping superstar to the reclusive "Wacko Jacko."

The agency also withheld more than 300 additional pages for a variety of reasons, including the protection of sources that provided information in the Jackson probes.

The FBI released seven separate Jackson files, with only one - involving a 1992 extortion threat against the international superstar - not related to child molestation allegations.
