Nicole Alvarez, who has a child with Murray, is also expected to testify today. In January Alvarez, who lives in Santa Monica, testified that she had received Murray’s packages at the apartment they shared, but she said she didn’t know the contents. Prosecutors believe those packages were shipments of propofol. “This is a different witness entirely than the other women…This is a witness who was receiving the propofol shipments at her house,” said Los Angeles County Deputy District Attorney David Walgren during the preliminary hearing.
“This is an uncooperative witness who has refused to cooperate with the police, has refused to open the door for the police, has reached out to Dr. Murray’s attorney. Whenever we tried to reach her… And it’s not simply a phone call…”
Murray met Alvarez, a cocktail waitress and actress, at a Las Vegas club. He still stays with her when he is in Los Angeles.
