Tight security at Glendale Forest Lawn Memorial Park’s Great Mausoleum remains nearly a week after Michael Jackson’s funeral, keeping all far at bay.
On Wednesday, security guards stood at the mausoleum entrance, which was blocked off with a red velvet rope. A white chain link fence blocked a staircase leading up to the Holly Terrace, where the legendary pop star is interred.

Forest Lawn maintains 24-hour security to ensure the safety and privacy of the deceased, the cemetery’s spokesman, William Martin, said.
Martin said no admirers have attempted break into the cemetery to visit the King of Pop’s final resting place.
