(LOS ANGELES) - Michael Jackson will be buried in Los angels, not his hometown of Gary, but there reportedly will be a Hoosier connection: the gossip website TMZ reports Jackson's family has ordered his casket from the Batesville Casket Company.

Jackson will reportedly be buried in a 25-thousand-dollar gold-plated "promethean" casket.

It's the same model used for another music legend, James Brown, in 2006. A memorial service is set for Tuesday at the staples center in Los Angeles, with Jackson to be buried at Forest Lawn Memorial Park.
