Michael Jackson's doctor, Dr. Conrad Murray, is seriously facing manslaughter charges and the L.A. coroner has officially ruled Michael's death a homicide. It is important to note this designation of homicide means a death occurred at the hands of another, thus it includes manslaughter and criminal negligence.
According to reports, the night before Michael passed, Murray tried to put him to sleep by administering the benzodiazepines lorazepam and midazolam. Then around 1:30 a.m. on June 25, he gave him a 10 mg tab of Valium. He then injected 2 mg of lorazepam around 2 a.m., 2 mg of midazolam around 3 a.m., and repeats of each at 5 a.m. and 7:30 a.m., respectively.
Dr. Murray told detectives they did not work and around 10:40 a.m. he gave in to Jackson's "repeated demands/requests" for propofol, which Michael had nicknamed his "milk." Dr. Murray administered 25 mg of propofol which finally put Michael to sleep...forever.Dr. Murray says he stayed Michael for 10 minutes before he went to the bathroom. According to him, when he returned 2 minutes later Michael had stopped breathing.
According to police analysis of phone records, Dr. Murray was on the phone with three separate callers for 47 minutes between the time he said Michael stopped breathing and paramedics were called. I think it goes without saying it is doubtful he was administering CPR while simultaneously holding these conversations. In addition, according to investigators, Dr. Murray withheld that he gave Michael Propofol from paramedics and hospital personnel when Michael was rushed to UCLA medical center in cardiac arrest. Dr. Murray also denied purchasing any of the drug though pharmacy records contradict his account. I have to say, if all this happened before 11am why did it take so long for him to come downstairs and tell someone to call 911? Why did he go get a 12 year-old in the emergency? Why call Joe Jackson in another state before calling 911? If he couldn't find a phone to call 911 how could he have been on his cell phone for 47 minutes before calling anyone?
