The FBI's explosive, secret dossier on Michael Jackson was made public yesterday and includes sickening -- and surprising -- allegations involving the kiddie-molestation raps against the superstar.
The sensational files on the late King of Pop -- started after LA cops asked the federal agency to become involved in their sex probe of Jacko -- include creepy new details of his antics with kids, specifically from a Canadian couple's ride on the same train with him.
A Toronto woman told investigators probing allegations against Jackson in 1993 that she and her husband -- both social workers in children's services -- were aboard a train on March 7, 1992, during a visit to California and that the singer and his entourage had four compartments near them.
She said a 12- or 13-year-old boy -- identified as Jacko's "cousin" to anyone who asked -- was with the singer at the time.
"Jackson was very possessive of the boy at night," the woman told cops, adding that she and her hubby grew even more suspicious of the star's behavior when they "heard questionable noises through wall," according to one FBI file.
"She was concerned enough to notify the conductor of her suspicions," authorities wrote at the time.

The woman's comments were part of the probe into allegations that the singer had molested Jacko mini-me Jordie Chandler, a young hanger-on who had been traveling with the star.
FBI files also contained information about the 2005 molestation trial against Jackson, as well as an attempted extortion of the singer in 1992.
The more-than-300 pages of documents show:
* The FBI had been asked to analyze one of Jacko's VHS tapes -- home-labeled "Michael Jackson's Neverland Favorites an All Boy Anthology" -- seized amid a related child-porn probe.
The Sony tape was only described in the documents as a "poor-quality, third- or fourth-generation recording" that could be "a copy of a copy of a copy." There were no details of its contents.
* The LAPD appeared hot to nail Jackson on the federal Mann Act -- involving "transportation of a minor across state lines for immoral purposes" -- when it came to Chandler, and asked the FBI to consider the move.
But the agency balked at the idea.
* Investigators scribbled down notations about the case that included, "Chimp. Male chimp," apparently referring to Jacko's beloved primate sidekick, Bubbles.
* Jackson had once been accused of molesting two Mexican boys in the mid-1980s -- but the case was supposedly covered up.
An unnamed source told the FBI that while researching a book he was writing about Jackson, he was informed the agency had investigated the charge in 1985 or 1986.
But the case wasn't pursued because "Jackson was to receive an honor at the White House from the president," the person said he was told. He added that his source insisted to him, "The investigation was covered up."
An FBI agent wrote that he turned up no such evidence of a probe.
The agency's records also show that authorities were willing to traipse the world to collect dirt on the singer.
Detectives went to Manila in the Philippines to interview two former Jackson ranch employees, Mariano Quindoy and his wife, Faye. The probers also went to Canada to talk to the train-riding tourists.
Copies of newspaper clippings in one file allege that Mariano had seen the singer fondle young boys on two occasions. Jackson's people called Mariano a failed extortionist.
In their pursuit of Jackson, detectives even had the US Embassy in London send them British reports of a case involving the singer and a teen there.
The FBI pored over the newspaper articles, which reported a relationship between Jackson and 13-year-old British schoolboy Terry George in 1979.
George, who as a kid had met Jackson, had surfaced amid the Chandler case, saying he remembered what could now be considered a disturbing phone call that the pair once had shared about masturbation.
Chandler's allegations were eventually settled with a reported $20 million payout.
But Jackson -- who died of a prescription-pill overdose at his LA home on June 25 -- was criminally tried in California in 2005 for allegedly touching a young cancer patient.
At the time of the singer's arraignment, cops in Santa Maria, Calif., where the trial was being held, fretted that the media onslaught would make the venue a "soft target" for terrorists.
But the FBI said there was no evidence to suggest that. Still, the agency noted that a known Black Panther member had been at Jackson's first court date.
A jury wound up acquitting the Gloved One.
Besides the molestation stigma, Jackson had other worries.
One involved an extortionist who targeted him -- as well as infamous mob boss John Gotti -- back in 1992, according to copies of the man's threatening notes in one file.
"I told you what will happen to John if he doesn't pay up. Michael, I will personally attempt to kill if he doesn't pay me my money," reads one letter to a newspaper.
The deeply disturbed man, Frank Paul Jones, said he was willing to "commit mass murder at a Michael Jackson concert if necessary in an attempt to murder Michael."
The writer was eventually charged with extortion and sentenced to prison time.
The FBI papers were released after requests by The Post and other media outlets.
Brief and to the Point:
This comes as no surprise. Furthermore, we should always bear in mind that several parents sold their kids to Michael Jackson so that they could climb the social pyramid at the expense of their kids. Many of them have made even fatter money as the result of outrageous agreements, that is, many of them did sell their kids to a "hungry animal" who would live in his Private Zoo which he referred to as Neveland...
