The video from the King of Pop's house on the day he died reportedly lost after police officers allegedly failed to make a full copy.

Surveillance footage from 's home on the day he died has reportedly been lost forever after police officers allegedly failed to make a full copy. The pop superstar passed away on 25 June, 2009 after suffering a drug overdose and his personal doctor, Conrad Murray, is facing trial over allegations he administered the fatal dose of Propofol.

Murray, who has denied a charge of involuntary manslaughter, will face the courts in May and his legal team is reportedly set to ask officers from the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) to hand over 24 hours of surveillance footage from Jackson's home covering the day he died.

Shortly after the King of Pop's passing, cops were said to be desperately searching for the CCTV tapes from Jackson's Los Angeles mansion which could provide clues as to what happened on the day he died, but a new report suggests the film will never be found.

Police initially probing Jackson's death are said to have copied just four minutes of footage, which showed the singer arriving home, before handing the tapes back. They were then reportedly put back into the security system which erased them as part of a 24 hour loop, according to TMZ.
