Jackson Doc Declines to Chat with Cops

7/18/2009 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

We've learned Dr. Conrad Murray canceled an interview with the LAPD.

As we have already reported, the LAPD is treating Michael Jackson's death as a homicide. Detectives have their sights set on Murray, as the person who may have administered the drug Propofol, which we're told is the primary cause of Jackson's death.

We're told the LAPD planned a third interview with Dr. Murray earlier in the week -- the doctor was interviewed the day Jackson died and again two days later.

Reps from the L.A. County Coroner's office planned to attend the third interview, but we're told Dr. Murray's lawyer called and said the doctor would not be speaking to the cops at this time.

And here's the best part. Our sources say the cops called the lawyer back and they were referred to the lawyer's lawyer who said Dr. Murray's lawyer would not be speaking to them!

LillyandGish, I AGREE WITH YOUR WORDS ENTIRELY, THE SITUATION CONCERNING (DR) MURRAY COULD NOT BE STATED BETTER.
WHO DO WE ACTUALLY KNOW WHO HAVE THEIR OWN LIVE IN DOCTOR ??? I DON'T THINK EVEN THE QUEEN OF ENGLAND HAS HER OWN LIVE IN DOCTOR.
MURRAY WAS THERE TO ADMINISTER. DID MICHAEL ADMINISTER PROPOFOL TO HIMSLEF ?? I DON'T THINK SO.
ARREST WARRENTS WILL BE ISSUED SHORTLY.

I cannot believe what I am reading, he gets to choose whether he wants to speak to the Pollice or not? What sort of system is this !!
He has no right to dictate whether he murdered someone or not, haul him in NOW before he flees the country..or gets his face altered to disguise himself !

Maybe Dr. Murray should just kill himself? What do you guys thing? In a situation like this his life is sure to be ruined no matter what. He probably runs the risk of either getting *ss raped in prison or taken out by a crazy MJ fan if he isn't in jail. Plus, I'm sure he's insane with guilt that he's responsible for killing the most famous entertainer in the world. How does one mentally cope with that? Denial I guess. That seems to be the coping mechanism of choice these days. Notice that one of the first statements issued by Dr. Murray's lawyer was that Dr. Murray was in no way responsible for Michael's death. Nice bit of denial there. Then he comes out and says how he used one hand as a 'support' behind Michael when giving cpr...but only says this AFTER the 911 call came out stating he was giving cpr on the bed which was roundly criticized by everyone. Dr. Murray, like many physicians I've encountered obviously isn't very well trained and has an ego to match his stupidity. Remember folks...just because someone has a degree doesn't mean they're smart. There are TONS of dumb doctors and lawyers out there in the world that just did the minimum necessary to get a 'self esteem' degree so they could walk around acting arrogant and pompous. Everyone knows that arrogance and self esteem are inversely proportional. Dr. Murray looks like the standard slick narcissistic doctor that thinks he knows everything and can never admit he's wrong. I hope they put him a jail cell with a 6'5'' 300 lb guy named Bubbah that has a thing for doctors....

See you at the trial...

A lot of people are not mentioning that Veterinarian doctors also use Anesthesia products on animals, and Michael did have a lot of animals at his Neverland Ranch so its not hard to conclude that his Vet Doctors also might of given him some drugs as well...

This doctor has every legal right to refuse to interview with police unless the police decide to criminally charge him. He would be entitled to have his lawyer present. He should have that right and he does - any of us would. And so should we should. You are perhaps jumping to conclusions. When an investigation of this sort is being carried out rights can be violated in an urgency to get to the bottom of things. It will all come out and unravel like the peeling of an onion. It is critically important that this investigation be carried out properly.

Peace.

It's obvious he killed him.
He denied injecting MJ with Demerol and other drugs.
then when asked about Propofol (Deprivan) they say: Neither confirm nor deny LOL

That's basically just confirming but not having the gutts to say so because of fear of the ramifications of such truth.

I mean wow take 30min to call 911, & the address you already knew since you went there through car!

It's obvious he used the 30min to cover up his mess as well as probably after reading that Propofol disappears shortly after administration.

Get the guy. & also to note and again Why oh Why TMZ you are not reporting this: Dr Murray had links with AEG & Sony before working for Michael. $ony & AEG both are beneficiaries from Jackson's death. They may or probably are very well mixed up in the scheme to kill MJ.

Conrad Murray and his attorney clearly know something that the general public doesn't. But how is giving a patient what the patient wants committing homicide? The subpoenas are coming next. That's when Dr. Murray will be calling the LAPD from his villa on Pitcairn Island.

This Doctor hopes he has got "OJ" luck and I suppose Michael payed him well so he can have a few layers to try and beat this rap(I HOPE NOT) but remenber at the end of the day "OJ" ended up broke and in jail. What go's around will come around one way or the other.

i was always just a casual fan of michael. you turn on the TV or radio, and he was there. but now, no more. i surprised even myself crying on/off for 2 weeks following his death. then stuck to the infectious, danceable disco tunes. the world seems full again. but he had to put some slow, self-reflective, sad ballads on the anthology albums - bang, the crying returned again.
now it looks like the worst one can suspect from dr murray's shady behavior, has come true. death by negligence, michael murdered!
he needs to pay, fair and square.

I guess the doctor won't talk until the cause of death has been determined, which might not be so easy - you don't automatically die from Propofol. There could be additional causes, or stress and frailty alone. Also, as far as I understand, Propofol is not a restricted drug. Every doctor knows you shouldn't have it and use it at home, but illegal? That's not a certainty.

If Murray didn't outright kill Michael Jackson, which seems not to be the case since he had nothing to gain from it (nobody has), what do you charge him with? And why?

Someone said AEG will make millions from the rehearsal films. They undoubtedly will, but they would have anyway.
