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.

I am so sick of hearing how poor Mikey didn't have a childhood so that is why he lived the way he did. The truth is that Joe and everyone around him did NOT allow him to GROW UP!! His celebrity and money "bought" him friends. And he certainly was not the first person who experienced pain from an accident. Bottom line, he was spoiled rotten. He was given whatever he wanted and he honestly felt that money could buy anything including his safety. Along with his hair going up in smoke, so did his career and that was almost 30 years ago. Another drug addict bites the dust. Oh well.

The doctors are guilty as hell. Michael asked them for the drugs, but they sure didn't do it for free.

THE CONGRESSMAN THAT SAID THE HORRIBLE THINGS ABOUT MJ NEEDS TO BE LOOKED AT UNDER A MICROSCOPE. jUST REMEBER, WHEN YOU ARE POINTING A FINGER AT SOMEONE, THERE ARE 3 MORE POINTING BACK AT YOU! SO THE CONGRESSMAN LIKES LITTLE BOYS, WHO VOTED FOR HIM? MJ WAS MURDERED AND I STAND FIRM ON THIS. IT WAS NO ACCIDENT.

Told you so!
And I hope LAPD has checked phone records coming from Holmby house to any Jackson family member PRIOR to the 911 call being made.

Jackson Killer,
Dont let this be a normal investigation cause as years go by , more and more questions will be asked and more more questions will be answered . Elvis, 2pac , biggie, JFK.

And dont let the doc commit sucide or everything will be over before we know the real truth.

I called it since the beginning. The DA is going to go for homicide and downgrade it to manslaughter. The Feds will sanction the doc(s) with high fines and possibly revoke their licenses. If in case it was Propofol and not Deprivan, what are the reactions or the interations when mixed with adrenaline injected to the heart? There will also be blame or finger pointing to the rescue workers if this is true

So it sounds like the doctor has already incriminated himself to the cops. Other news sources are reporting that there is NO criminal investigation being looked into with regard to the docs, and that at least Klein, is completely off the hook. My opinion is that Michael Jackson was a junky WAY before he met doctor Murray. Since Michael has a history of using Propofol, going all the way back to the 90's, what was this doctor going to say when Michael was begging for it? This doctor is a dumb ass. He apparently didn't know how to say no to MJ. Hell, he was being paid at least $150,000 a month, so he probably felt obligated to cave into whatever demand Michael made. It sounds like he was pretty manipulative to get what he wanted as far as drugs are concerned. That's nothing unusual for a drug addict. They'll do whatever they have to do to get what they want. If it wasn't Dr Murray, it would have been some other doctor. BUT, since it WAS Dr Murray, he's gonna go down. I'm not so sure he's going to be charged criminally(although it seems like it would be a crime to feed a junky when you're a doctor), but the Jackson's are going to sue the pants off of him!!!

So if Murray had been honest with the paramedics ,they could have intubated MJ put him on a ventaltor and let the drug run its course. That is if Murray did indeed do proper cpr to keep the blood flow going. He went into respitory failure.
No reversal agent. Unlike other sedation agents , there is no reversal agent for propofol. Adverse effects must be treated until the drug is metabolized

TMZ, celebrity c*cksuckers! Michael Jackson was a junkie. He was addicted to anasthesia and the doctors wouldn't say NO to him. Michael Jackson killed HIMSELF!

i've been wondering since day 1 why the good doc took sooooo much time to summon 911. could it be bc the halflife of Propofor is so short and he was gambling that after an halfhour or so -but, especially at autopsy which would be much later - that there would be no trace of this drug in his system. man, this whole thing sux! rip mj
