Did Michael Jackson Doctor Give him Drug Before Death, Anonymous Source Says Yes


Every one awaits the Michael Jackson toxicology report to see just what killed the King of Pop. It has long been speculated that the drug propofol caused Jackson’s heart to stop. According to the AP, an anonymous law enforcement official says Jackson’s doctor did administer a a powerful anesthetic to help him sleep that most likely caused the cardiac arrest.

Michael Jackson’s personal doctor administered a powerful anesthetic to help him sleep, and authorities believe the drug is what killed the pop singer, a law enforcement official told The Associated Press on Monday.

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing, said Jackson regularly received propofol to sleep, a practice far outside the drug’s intended purpose. On June 25, the day Jackson died, Dr. Conrad Murray gave him the drug sometime after midnight, the official said.

Dr. Conrad Murray has been identified in court papers as the subject of a manslaughter investigation. Murray’s lawyer, Edward Chernoff made the following statement:

the doctor “didn’t prescribe or administer anything that should have killed Michael Jackson.” When asked Monday about the law enforcement official’s statements he said: “We will not be commenting on rumors, innuendo or unnamed sources.”

Toxicology reports are reportedly to be released in the near future.

      The Noose is tightening on the Doctor. While MJ was responsible for his own drug addiction and behaviors—not a good thing when a Dr. illegally enables and assists another human being (celebrity or not) in his/her death. Accident or not….does sound like unintentional Manslaughter to me—but I’m no expert.

      One thing is for sure though—surely Conrad Murray was well aware when he was hired what SPECIFICALLY he was being used for and paid handsomely to boot. How could there have been any confusion there? Did he ever wiegh the huge risks of administering this drug in these amounts—-especially to a person who had such a highly public profile? That is so hard to believe- that not ONE of the times when the Dr. went to push the syringe he didn’t worry or ask himself—”What if he doesn’t wake up this time?” Seems as if the Nurse knew well enough…why not this Dr.?

      Bye Bye Doctor Murray.

      Of course he (the doctor) knew there was always that chance that he (Michael) wouldn’t wake up. That drug was not intended to be used in that manner. It’s not a sleep aide, it’s an anesthesia. He knew the risks but chose to continuously inject MJ with this medication. I feel there are other medications he could have used to help him with his insomnia.

      How exactly was this doctor acquiring this medication? My understanding is that it’s used only in hospitals by anesthesiologist. I wouldn’t think that this would easily available to just anyone. (doctor or not)

      It is a tragic situation because MJ did not have to die this way. Someone should have been trying to help him get better not supply his drug habits. Injecting him several times a day with sleep inducing drugs obviously didn’t help.

      I think SOME of these doctors let money cloud their judgments. They are supposed to be looking out for the patients best interest. Looks like that didn’t happen in this case.

      Truly sad

      This physician took an oath to do no harm, When he was confronted with the ethic’s of delivering Propofol to Michael for the pleasure of sleep, rather than the necessity of sedation, for a surgical procedure; he chose to be unsafe. Greed killed Michael. The doctor needed money.
      $150,000 a month is more than most physicians make in a year. The risk of death was evident. This is the same as a drunken driver being responsible for the loss of life is an accident.
      The probability of loss was apparent prior to the act.

      I turned on Nancy Grace a few times to hear what was going on and got tired of her saying BOMBSHELL TONIGHT and then some little piece of gossip..over and over and people arguing over it.Had to turn it off. Jane Velez Mitchell, well let’s hope she wins drama queen of the year.

      You can bet Michael Jackson didn’t die of natural causes such as a heart attack on his own or I would think it would be ruled that weeks ago. Nothing would surprise me.. Lisa Presly said he told her, he feared he would die like Elvis.. Well that should’ve been a wake up call to him if he thought that.. because Elvis’s dr. lost his license to pratice medicine.. but then again they use all kinds of aliases to get drugs from many drs. Anyone fighting any kind of addiction knows how it is.. Why would anyone enable that addiction because sooner or later we know what the outcome will be..A doctor of all people.. should know it best. Makes me think of the old Steppenwolf song..

      You know I smoked a lot of grass and I’ve popped a lot of pills
      But I’ve never done nothing that my spirit couldn’t kill
      And I walk around with these tombstones in my eyes
      But I know the pusher don’t care, if you live or if you die

      Maggie..I agree..I think Nancy has lost some of her audience, although she has a big number still. JVMitchell doesn’t attack her guests but she uses “bombshell” a lot.

      of course he did…..dumb ass most likely fell asleep…Actually, if you want to blame someone…BLAME JACKSON himself…..he was an outa control DRUG ABUSER for years. Doctors preyed on him like moths to a flame. No one did anything to stop him…to force him into rehab. If the family was oh so concerend, then they should have had him committed…PERIOD ! just like Britney Spears did…..and it worked! But no….They all sat by waiting for the gravy train to continue to run through….The real victims in the whole mess are the children…..Not the JACKSONS……talk about of bunch of do nothing leeches….only the JACKSON women had any balls to run their own lives…the do little of nothing JACKSON MEN, sat married, divorced, remarried and divorced again waiting for the MICHAEL GRAVY TRAIN…… MJ is dead….dead as a doornail…too late now for should haves and could haves….its over…BY HIS OWN HAND…….

BOMBSHELL ugh! its not a bombshell nancy. she is spending way too much time on the same thing day after day after day…..there are plenty of tragic stories in the news to report on…constantly hearing about a DRUG ABUSER over and over way too much …She did the same thing with Caylee….OVER KILL!
