Whether is was conjuring new dance moves, writing chart-topping hits, dangling toddlers over balconies or buying a laboratory chimp named Bubbles, Michael Jackson, the King of Pop, always found a way to shock the world.

Jackson died four years ago Tuesday from cardiac arrest caused by a lethal combination of prescription drugs. His death was later ruled a homicide, and Dr. Conrad Murray was sentenced to a maximum penalty of four years in prison.

Jackson is survived by his three children, Prince Michael Jackson II, Michael Joseph Jackson Jr. and Paris-Michael Katherine Jackson.
