Jackson Doc's Interest in Sleeping Disorders

7/24/2009 1:44 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson and Dr. Conrad MurrayAn interesting turn in the Michael Jackson investigation. Several items were seized at Dr. Conrad Murray's Houston office -- "Pamphlets on Sleep Center."

We're told Jackson may have taken the powerful anesthesia Propofol the day he died because he couldn't sleep. Police believe Dr. Murray may have administered the drug.

The Sleep Center is located near Doctor's Hospital in Houston. Dr. Murray was suspended from Doctor's Hospital -- the administrator tells us he believes the doctor was suspended for not completing medical records in a timely fashion.

As for Dr. Murray's affiliation with the Sleep Center -- a rep from the company hung up when we told them we were TMZ.

Just to remain as fair and as impartial as possible. Many doctors do give referrals to Sleep Centers as part of their practices. Therefore finding pamphlets for such services is NOT unusual. Especially in Internal Medicine, General and Family Practice. From what I understand, Dr. Murray was a Cardiologist.anxiety pertaining to heart problems would be a valid reason for referral.

What Am I Missing Here    

125. How was this Doctor going to get the Propofol and Oxygen for Michael if they had of made it to the UK? with this doctor not having a practice over here, or did this doctor already have a contact to call on in the UK, OR maybe his work with Michael was going to end if Michael had of made it to the "02 Tour"

Michael was doing the same thing in 1996-97 during his HIStory Tour. He had an anesthesiologist, Dr. Neil Ratner, travel with him. That's probably why he wanted Murray instead of a London doctor like AEG wanted.

Ratner quoted as saying, "I take him down at night and then I bring him back up."

Quit babying Jacko. He had a sleep disorder from all the DRUGS he was on. HE was fifty freaking years old. He didn't want to stop doing drugs and detox, and just added Propofol to the mix.

TMZ, I know it's not difficult to do, please use at least some halfway decent pictures of Michael. =( These pictures you use show him at his lowest moments, staring to look like a toilet tabloid. Please change the taste of the pictures.

I wonder if that's how MJ found Murray, because he had this sleep clinic. All the doctors that have discussed MJ's drug addiction say his inability to sleep was from taking large amounts of heavy duty narcotics, and when they wore off he couldn't sleep because he was actually withdrawing from those strong medications. If just one of his many doctors would have made him detox he would've been able to sleep like a normal person and he'd still be alive. Glad he can't molest any more boys but the doc needs to pay the price for this.

UK fan    

I seriously doubt the fool delibrately set out to kill his "victim"
No, I believe this "Dr" was a greedy stupid careless egocentric bastard whose overinflated ego was being fed daily by the self deluded belief that "Michael Jackson NEEDS ME!!"
His stupidity and arrogance has led to a terrible and tragic mistake and for that he must pay. Preferably with his life.
