Jackson Doc Talks Himself Into a Corner

7/16/2009 3:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson DocWe've learned the doctor at the center of the investigation into Michael Jackson's death is in the cross hairs of the LAPD because of his own words.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Dr. Conrad Murray's statements to police on the Saturday following Jackson's death contained incriminating disclosures about his involvement. Some members of law enforcement are surprised he spoke in the first place and surprised at what he volunteered.

As we reported yesterday, the LAPD is already treating Jackson's death as a homicide and there have been multiple conversations between detectives and the L.A. County District Attorney's office, although the D.A. has not opened its own formal investigation.

And we've learned, although some of the toxicology results are not in yet, important test results already completed point to the anesthesia Propofol as the primary cause of death. Our law enforcement sources say the evidence is clear -- Propofol was the primary reason Jackson's heart stopped beating.

Dr. Murray's lawyer would neither confirm nor deny if his client administered Propofol to Jackson the day he died.

This dope pusher will suffer in prison for 25 to life. He needed money because he's in debt. Now he's life is over.

Democrats are evil    

It's only proper that he's an African American doctor. If he were white, can you imagine the chaos that would follow. Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and all of the ACLU would be getting in line for the lynching. At least this guy will have to deal with justice in a somewhat normal manner. Hope he enjoyed his career cause it looks like it's coming to a very abrupt end.

I did not have a tremendous amount of sympathy for Michael Jackson these past few weeks ... UNTIL I read Robert Hillburn's commentary (published twice in the L.A. Times recently) and then viewed tonight's commercial shoot footage showing a horrible burn to MJ's scalp. If what TMZ is telling us is true - that MJ's prescription drug problem began with this burn injury - then I really hope that those physicians and health professionals who mis-served MJ are brought to justice.

If this is what happened, then it's manslaughter, not murder. Michael Jackson was complicit here as well, but he was also an addict and a medical professional should have known that. Anyone practicing medicine who does this should lose their license and face the brunt of the law.
