Conrad Murray’s Lawyer Claims Michael Jackson Killed Himself

Rucuss staffSeptember 28, 2011

Conrad Murray’s lawyer revealed to the jury that Michael Jackson caused his own death.

In Ed Chernoff ‘s opening statement, Murray’s lawyer laid out a theory that explains why Michael Jackson is dead. Here is an outline of statements and incidents that explains his theory via Hollywood Gossip:

  • Michael Jackson swallowed 8, 2 mg pills of Lorazepam, then self-injected a  dose of Propofol that created a “perfect storm” that killed him
  • There was no way to save Jackson, who died instantly
  • Jackson “had a problem” that no amount of determination could overcome, even  with his talent, and was in a deteriorated state for years
  • Dr. Murray is a good man, a cardiologist who saves lives
  • Murray had no idea at the time he was brought on that MJ had so many severe  medical problems, including a total inability to sleep
  • Michael Jackson told Murray that the only way he could sleep was with  Propofol and always took Propofol, even before hiring Murray
  • Murray provided Propofol for two months for MJ, and during that time the  singer slept, woke up, and lived life as he always did
  • Murray was trying to ween MJ off Propofol and give  him other, more traditional sedatives in the days before he died – with some  success
  • With execs threatening to “pull the plug” on his “This Is It” tour, MJ made  it clear to Murray that he needed to sleep or the tour would fail
  • Murray only gave Jackson 25 milligrams of Propofol before MJ died – not  enough to kill him. MJ went to sleep with a normal pulse rate
  • When Murray left the room, “there was zero Propofol in his [Michael’s]  system” … implying Michael woke up and shot himself up with the fatal dose  when Murray was gone, which he also claims wasn’t negligent
  • Dr. Arnold Klein got Jackson hooked on  Demerol
  • Murray hid nothing from doctors or police
