Law Enforcement Doesn't Believe Dr. Murray

8/26/2009 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. MurrayLaw enforcement sources tell TMZ the L.A. County Coroner and the LAPD are not buying Dr. Conrad Murray's story that he gave Michael Jackson a relatively low dosage of Propofol before he died.

Sources say the L.A. County Coroner has determined Michael Jackson died from a lethal level of Propofol. There were "traces" of other drugs in Jackson's system, but nothing that would have killed him.

According to the search warrant affidavit, during Dr. Murray's interview with LAPD detectives two days after Jackson died, he said he gave Jackson 25 milligrams of Propofol shortly before the singer stopped breathing. Dr. Murray also said he had been giving Jackson 50 milligrams of Propofol for the prior six weeks so Jackson could sleep, but he felt the singer may have been forming an addiction so he cut back.

Here's the reality. It takes approximately 400 milligrams of Propofol for someone of Jackson's body size to sleep 8 hours -- that's 16 times the amount Dr. Murray says he gave Jackson the day he died.

Our law enforcement sources simply do not believe that 25 milligrams would have in any way compromised Michael Jackson, especially since he had developed a tolerance to a much higher level.

rs Maybe the leak is intentional. I've read that the cops do leak things to manipulate their suspects, even untrue things.

Cal: I hope Jermaine's hands are clean. I was not happy when I heard he was the one that hooked MJ up with the evil Tohme Tohme, that MJ became deathly afraid of. I don't know if you saw the news report of what MJ told his spiritual advisor, Gatlin, about Tohme, but Tohme was controlling MJ's entire life and he was afraid of him. When MJ got up the courage to fire Tohme, he vowed death and destruction on the Jacksons.

The law is for those who have no money. Who will prove that Michael is still alive? Nobody! There are at least dollars in the game. See here the most recent Michael's interview, where he addmited he has at least 100 songs to be heard after his deaths. Can you imagine? Need translation...

MJ is dead...that is the main thing. Why look a gift horse in the mouth? Just be glad that he is dead.

he is not lying. he gave just 25mg, as the protocol says. to give 400mg, michael would have to be sleeping for hours, because propofol has to be applied continuosly.and we all know that he suposely stoped breathing 20min after the propofol was given to him. ITS ALL A LIE! both the police and murray are lying.

Couple of things that concern me so far...First they can't find a link to where Murray purchased the Profolol. Since Murray admitted to giving it to Michael they have that statement. By why did he admit that if he didn't think they could prove it? Second, if he says he gave 25 mg and then left the room, but Michael had way more than that, could he not say that someone else stepped in and gave him more? Third, Murray says that Michael had 4 other doctors prescribing for him but refused to tell him what they were giving him. RED FLAG here. When was the last time you told your doctor that and then had him give you a prescription without knowing how it would counteract with what you were on?
