A Los Angeles County coroner has ruled that the death of pop star Michael Jackson was a homicide. It was a combination of drugs that contributed to Jackson’s death. Now it is just a matter of time as to what criminal charges will be brought and against who. Dr. Conrad Murray, the physician hired to care for Jackson is the obvious target; however, will others be charged as well?
Forensic tests found the powerful anesthetic propofol acted together with at least two sedatives to cause Jackson’s death June 25 in his rented Los Angeles mansion, according to the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the findings have not been publicly released.
Dr. Conrad Murray, a Las Vegas cardiologist who became Jackson’s personal physician weeks before his death, is the target of a manslaughter investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department. A designation of homicide means that Jackson died at the hands of another, but does not necessarily mean a crime was committed.
A search warrant was unsealed Monday in Houston, TX detailing the accounts that Dr. Murray told investigators. See the Michael Jackson Search Warrant at The Smoking Gun.
MTV reports that Michael Jackson homicide ruling surprised fans. Why, have they not been paying attention to this story? Newsflash to Jackson-ites, this is what happens when one takes multiple prescription drugs and some one supplies them to you.
However, one thing is for certain … there are no heroes in this story. Who ever takes the fall for Jackson’s death will be deserving. However, there are many that are guilty and responsible including Michael Jackson, himself. Much like the story of Anna Nicole Smith, there was no cowboy wearing a white hat riding in to save the day.
