Michael Jackson's Boyhood Home Still Draws Curious

Posted: Updated:
GARY, Ind. (AP) - Michael Jackson fans and curious sightseers still are beating a path to his boyhood home more than three weeks after his death.

A memorial of stuffed animals, flowers and photos of Jackson provide a backdrop for fans who wanted to be filmed or photographed in front of the house where the King of Pop, his siblings and their parents lived until 1969.

Five vendor booths outside the home offer Jackson T-shirts, DVDs, CDs, posters, buttons and other memorabilia.

Vendor William Salaam said business remains steady and people are coming from further away.

Posts outside the house are scribbled with written messages from followers of the music legend, and a banner taped to the side home says, "We miss you MJ."
