Jackson Time of Death a Mystery

8/26/2009 5:22 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

MIchael JacksonLaw enforcement sources tell TMZ the L.A. County Coroner cannot pinpoint the time of Michael Jackson's death ... but paramedics say when they arrived they believed he was dead for at least an hour and maybe longer.

Dr. Conrad Murray
's statement to LAPD detectives lays out a timeline in which Dr. Murray administered Propofol at 10:40 AM and then ten minutes later (10:50) he walked out of the room, went to the bathroom and returned two minutes later (10:52) to find Jackson was not breathing. He did not have anyone call 911 until 12:21 PM ... approximately an hour-and-a-half later.

Sources say cops are suspicious of Dr. Murray's account. They say when Dr. Murray was interviewed by them two days after Jackson died -- his lawyer by his side -- the doctor's account seemed "scripted."

So when did Jackson really die? Rigor mortis typically doesn't set in for at least 3 hours, and often longer. If rigor mortis has not set in, the only way to approximate time of death is by body temperature. Once a person dies, their temperature eventually rises or falls to the temperature of the environment. For example, if Jackson were in a 70 degree room, his body temp would drop to 70. The body temperature typically drops a degree to a degree and a half per hour, but it's dependent on the ambient temperature.

Here's the problem -- when paramedics arrived the room was sweltering. So Jackson's body temperature could register in the 90 degree range, even if he were dead for a long time. But we're told paramedics did not get a read on his body temp because they were busy performing CPR.

Bottom line -- it's possible Jackson could have been dead much longer than Dr. Murray said. There's no scientific way of knowing.

Wow! This really could be that conspiracy Latoya is been talking about from the begining. Things aren't adding up here. This doc is very shady. It's seems as if this story is not going to go away for a while. MJ's been dead for three months now yet we are just starting to have a glimps on what really went on and so far nothing make sense. Each info that comes out is just too much to take and leaves you with this an easy feeling.

I think Murray tells the truth except for one little thing: he never got back 2 minutes later, he got back in the room at 12:05 and found Jackson dead. Then he did cpr and ran downstairs to the kitchen. MJ's chef also told this on Larry King: "So around 12:00, 12:05, 12:10, Dr. Murray comes down the stairs and he’s screaming, hurry. Go get Prince. Call security. Get Prince."

So he found MJ dead at 12:05, ran down at 12:10, and the next is history...

It sounds about right that he stayed with MJ for 10 minutes, til 10:50. So MJ died between 10:50 and 12:05, so he was dead anywhere from 92 - 17 minutes when the paramedics arrived.

I wholeheartedly agree with you! We have to stop being manipulated by the lying satanic media. This was a conspiracy to murder. And the fact that the room temperature was 90 degrees in a mansion with excellent heating and air conditioning shows consciousness of guilt. That, the Murray lied to the paramedics and the hospital staff about only giving MJ a sedative. MJ was dead for a long time before the paramedics arrived. The guy on the 911 call was too calm.

"I may win on the roundabout
Then I'll lose on the swings
In or out, there is never a doubt
Just who's pulling the strings????
I'm all tied up to you
But where's it leading me to?"
