Dr. Murray to Cops:

I Gave Jackson Propofol

7/28/2009 2:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Dr. MurrayWe've told you since July 15 police believe Dr. Conrad Murray administered Propofol to Michael Jackson -- the drug that killed him. There's a reason police believe it. Dr. Murray told them.

Two days after Jackson's death, Dr. Murray told LAPD detectives he administered Propofol to the singer hours before he died ... this, according to multiple law enforcement sources.

We're told Dr. Murray gave Jackson an IV drip of the powerful anesthetic. Police believe Dr. Murray simply wasn't paying attention when the singer's heart stopped beating.

Authorities believe Dr. Murray may have actually fallen asleep during the time the drug was administered and may have awakened to find Jackson already dead from heart failure.

An IV drip of Propofol allows a constant, steady infusion of the drug for a period of time determined by the person administering it.

It is considered reckless in the medical community for a doctor to administer an IV drip of Propofol without the patient being monitored by an EKG, which sounds an alarm when the patient's pulse drops too low. No EKG was found in the house.

Malpractice? The family will go for it. They, no doubt, need the funds.

Forget about the burn from the Pepsi commercial...The worst thing to happen to Michael Jackson was in meeting Elizabeth Taylor, whom he looked up to like a mother/older sister and who introduced him to enablers like Dr. Klein and probably many, many more leeches who would do anything for a chance to "befriend" someone famous! I think MJ saw that all the celebrities he idolized, like Taylor and Diana Ross, drank too much and did all kinds of drugs and he thought it was the thing a celebrity should do.....sometimes it only takes one drink, shot, or toke to be hooked.....especially if you already have underlying emotional trauma you are trying to drown out of your memory. How tragic.....still it is unbelievable.......

Murray's lawyer claims these leaks are 'timed' and that everyrone needs to chill and wait for the "long-delayed" toxicology reports. Even we plebes know that report is going to say NOTHING about Diprivan because it disappears immediately more or less and we all know there was a LONG delay (hours) before he was ever pronounced dead or his body tested. At that point Dr. Murray can say, "I must have misspoke, I did not administer Diprivan and if you claim I have, where's the evidence. I have no idea why he died." What do you bet...

After he found Jackson dead, he started hiding/destroying evidence. If there is CCTV footage, they'd see cars leaving the compound. The CPR and 911 call was just for show. Notice how the 911 caller did not sound panicked at all. MJ had been dead for a looonnggg time by then.

Maybe he died from an overdose of Viagra.

There is no difference between selling heroin on street corner to a junkie who over doses and this. The biggest evil here is money. Michael found his dealer.

Thanks Houston, TX for the link. I learned a few things I didn't know....like the upstairs portion of the house was stifling hot because MJ always complained he was cold. I hope the kids didn't have to sleep in that sauna.....

Race has nothing to do with Jackson's addiction nor does money. Many white, Indian, latino folks die because of drugs, too. Many of those have little to no money.
