SMH: Shady Doctor’s Lawyers Say Michael Jackson “Killed Himself” With Propofol

- By Bossip Staff

They just need to let poor MJ rest in peace:

Michael Jackson killed himself with a lethal dose of the hospital anaesthesia Propofol, it has been claimed.
Los Angeles County Deputy District Attorney David Walgren claimed lawyers for Dr Conrad Murray, who is accused of involuntary manslaughter in relation to Jackson’s death, plan to use the theory as the main part of his defense. Walgren’s statement came at a hearing yesterday where a lawyer for Dr Murray clashed with the prosecutor over who should test residue from two syringes found in Jackson’s bedroom.

He said: ‘I do think it’s clear the defense is operating under the theory that the victim, Michael Jackson, killed himself. ‘They don’t want to say it but that’s the direction in which they are going.’ Defense attorney J. Michael Flanagan said a huge amount of the anaesthetic Propofol was found in Jackson’s body, but his client has said he gave him only 25 milligrams of the drug.

Mr. Walgren suggested the defense will claim Jackson killed himself by injecting more of the drug into himself. It is understood that Dr Murray’s lawyers will claim that the star woke up while his physician was out of the room for two minutes in the toilet and administered a lethal dose of the drug himself. A preliminary hearing in the case begins next Tuesday when Judge Michael Pastor will decide whether the prosecution has a strong enough case to support the unusual charge that Dr Murray was criminally responsible for the king of pop’s death in June 2009.

As many as 30 witnesses are expected to be called during the two week hearing. Although the defense won’t be putting its case, it is thought highly likely that the judge will find that the American cardiologist will have to go to trial.

Dr. Murray, 52, faces up to four years in prison if he is convicted. Reports in the US have suggested that the doctor’s lawyers will argue that the singer injected Propofol himself using an intravenous drip, causing a massive heart attack. He then supposedly dropped the bottle on the floor. When the doctor came back into the room he tried CPR in a desperate attempt to revive Jackson.

An autopsy later showed the heart attack was caused by a fatal dose of Propofol, a drug Jackson used to help with his chronic insomnia. Mr Flanagan said a broken syringe was found on the bedroom floor in addition to a syringe in an intravenous medication bag. He also revealed that a fingerprint found on the broken syringe hasn’t been identified.

    Micheal did kill himself. No one forced feed him the medication.

  • get em paid!

    MJ like all the rest of them has some serious stuff going on! The doctors kept him alive as long as he could without violating his privacy or oath! The doctor did not kill him. The Jacksons might want to shut up and let him RIP before the media turns him into a poster child!

  • MissLayDee

    Killed himself?? Last time i checked Dr’s are responsible for the proper dosage of any type of medication. He could have objected to giving him the meds…but he would have just found someone else…

  • ignoranceisbliss

    MJ wasn’t forced to use Propofol MJ took Propofol willingly.

    Dr.Murray isn’t a killer MJ was a legal addict to prescription drugs and he told the people at AEG to find him a doctor willing to give him Propofol to sleep…Well MJ found some real good sleep death SMH.


    Like Mike Said: This Is It!!!

  • http://bossip Hannibals Dad

    Mr. Murray was illegal from the start with providing too much of the drug in his posession ! Even if Michael did it he is an acessory after the fact !

  • whatisthat

    you can not give to drug to yourself,thru a iv..dummy…murderer!!

  • Natalie

    Is this doctor serious?!!! How in the world are you can a person administer drugs through an IV by themselves. He is full of s*** and I hope the judge and court sees this. He is a murder and he needs to go to jail for killing this man. This drug wasn’t even suppose to be administered outside of a hospital setting that’s it’s against the law. That fact right there should send him to jail I swear if they left him walk this shows how messed up the justice system is.

  • Sallyone

    Umm no is sticking up for him cause he black, but cause its the truth…Micheal overdosed himself….

  • dese

    what I really cant stand and really wish the media would do (even though i know they wont) is make it clear to the people that really dont understand whats going on. Sure at different points in his life mike probably abused prescription medication. given his life I understand why. Yet still. with all of the painkillers and doctors he had prescribing him and given him what he wanted all of that is still irrelevant to his Death.Prescription drugs were not in his system. lets be real. Mike died because he was tryna get sleep. we all know this its nothing new. mike had problems sleeping preparing for these concerts. decided to take the profofol & even though it was very dangerous it got the job done.unfortunately he was given too much, it shut down his lungs and he died. the thing is there was a doctor responsible for giving him a certain amount. the doctor gave him too much. it is Conrad’s fault. He just doesnt want to go to jail for it.

      Just the shyt that’s on TMZ and even within those articles, the evidence is as plain as day. Read where this drug was used to treat insomnia.
