    Jackson Family May Purchase Private Garden for Michael's Final Resting Place

    Michael Jackson is still "not buried yet," but we're hearing that he may be getting close.

    A source close to the Jacksons tells E! News that the family is now looking to purchase a private garden at Forest Lawn Memorial Park so that ultimately, the entire clan can be laid to rest, side by side.

    "They are waiting to work out the details on buying plots for the whole family before they lay Michael to rest," says the source.

    Each garden, which runs about $253,000 and is enclosed by a brick wall with flowers surrounding it, can hold up to eight plots.

    Wait a minute, the garden only accommodates eight people?

    Hmmm, we did the math and in this case, eight definitely isn't enough.

    There are nine Jackson siblings (with their various families), along with parents Joe and Katherine Jackson. No word yet on who won't make the cut.

    Meanwhlie, E! News was also able to locate the hitherto hard-to-find Forest Lawn grave of Michael's grandmother, Martha Bridges, and contrary to some accounts reporting a hush-hush burial of Jackson's body beside Bridges, no signs of a fresh grave, or any new grave nearby, were located.
