Michael Jackson's Doctor -- Free to Go

6/28/2009 11:28 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson, Conrad MurrayDr. Conrad Murray, the personal physician to Michael Jackson, is free to travel if he wants to -- but he plans on staying in town "out of the goodness of his heart."

A rep for Murray's lawyer tells TMZ there is "no need for further questioning" of Murray, but says the doctor "wants to help out as much as possible."

Murray was interviewed by LAPD yesterday for three hours. He is not considered a suspect.

Jackson is not a victim.

He surrounded himself with the people who would as he directed.

Now this slime doctor and Jackson have made it that much harder for people with true medical need for painkillers.

All the idiot doctors who practice defensive medicine are going to see this slime doctor get strung up as the family is clearly angling for money with a lawsuit. And the other idiot doctors are irrationally going to correlate Jackson with ALL patients and stop prescribing.

I don't see how MJ's family can know that he received "too much" Demerol, unless one of them prepared the syringe with which MJ was injected. MJ was getting several shots a day and it had become part of his routine care. There was no reason to expect he would have an adverse reaction. MJ was at home, not in a doctor's office or hospital, so it is unlikely that a defibrillator was available.

Help out? I think he helped out, or lack thereof enough.

11. Wrongful death... AEG hired Dr. Conrad Murray so does that make this company responsible?

************************************************

It would, were it not for the fact that it was Jackson who INSISTED that they hire this particular doctor. According to the AEG rep, Jackson made it almost a contractual deal-breaker that THIS doctor had to be hired full time, or he wouldn't agree to do the concerts. If true, then AEG dodged a billion dollar bullet in this instance.

But this isn't over. Michael has been addicted since AT LEAST 2004, so his condition was known to Murray, whose job clearly was to over-medicate MJ on a daily basis. He was Dr. Feelgood, unquestionably. This investigation will continue; if not now, then at the inevitable civil trial stage.

hopems:41. I don't see how MJ's family can know that he received "too much" Demerol,.."

Because cardiac arrest after receiving an opioid injection most of the times means overdose.
And we don't really know how much it was part of his daily routine either. Michael's manager says otherwise . So that's something to be estabilished first.

LMAO, what is he going to do return to his two practices in Vegas or TX? His office/home would be surrounded by media and hacked off fans. Good luck having a normal life Dr. Death.

Er # 61 "Discoid lupus erythematosus cause, diagnosis, symptoms, and treatment. Discoid lupus erythematosus (DLE), is a chronic skin disease. MOST individuals with discoid lupus will only develop skin manifestations, but SOME patients will also present symptoms of systemic lupus."

62. There are so many stories in the UK, not here. Why is that so?
This is a very in depth article: http://www.newsoftheworld.co.uk/news/381738/Michael-Jackson-family-hunted-for-cash-hours-after-death-says-nanny-Grace-Rwaramba.html

WOW!! That has lots of info in it I thought she was still with the kids (the nanny). What the heck went on 2mos ago, everyone interviewed, even friends quote that 2mos thing when they last saw him, last were able to contact him.

I do question her quote of saying he could not finish 2 lines of we are the world at 2006 awards, he was drowned out by insane fan chaos and screaming.

How can a cardiologist not know the proper way of doing CPR? C'mon on now people. This guy is a quack and needs to be arrested for at least manslaughter. He fled the scene of a crime. He improperly administered CPR and he's a DOCTOR? that's negligence. Even if MJ had taken other pills before the doctor gave him the shot of Demerol, the doctor could've given him Narcan to counter the effects. He didn't. He fled the scene. On foot apparently. He hauled ass out of there cuz he knew he was guilty.

Well of course they called the nanny in London about his hiding cash, it was a rental house and they were trying to move his things out of it (very smart move by the Jacksons as was the 2nd autopsy imho) that includes his cash. I think it cements that the nanny knew him best and sadly could have taken better care of him then the people the promoters hired.

That explains some of those photos of him with the kids in well, let's face it, a very very VERY modest home and the pictures seemed to be taken at different times.

P.S. I have SLE (systemic lupus) and I understand about being in chronic pain and the effects lupus has on various body systems. MJ had discoid which usually only affects the skin, not other body systems. Let's not forget that the man only weighed about 100 lbs and has often been rumored to have anorexia which would cause a lot of heart problems. Not to mention all the exercising he was doing rehearsing for the upcoming concerts. He could've suffered an electrolyte imbalance from a combination of meds, dehydration, anorexia. Maybe it wasn't the shot that the doctor administered but the fact that a cardiologist doesn't know how to properly administer CPR and fled the scene leaving his car there is just suspicious as all hell.

This sounds very true.

The photo of the family backing up a truck and hauling all the expensive stuff out of that house so quickly is sickening.
