Michael Jackson Coroner Report -- HOMICIDE

8/28/2009 5:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson Coroner Report The L.A. County Coroner has just officially announced the cause of Michael Jackson's death -- Acute Propofol intoxication.

The report says "other conditions contributing to death: Benzodiazepine effect." Benzodiazepines are a group of drugs (see below) used to treat anxiety and insomnia.

The manner of death is ruled: "HOMICIDE."

The Coroner did not release the full autopsy report -- just a press notice. It goes on:

The drugs PROPOFOL and LORAZEPAM (Ativan) were found to be the primary drugs responsible for Mr. Jackson's death.

Other drugs detected were: Midazolam (Versed), Diazepam (Valium), Lidocaine (topical anesthetic) and Ephedrine (used to treat hypotension associated with anesthesia).

The final Coroner's report, including the toxicology report, will remain on security hold, per the LAPD.

The Jackson family just released a statement:

"The Jackson family again wishes to commend the actions of the Coroner, the LAPD and other law enforcement agencies, and looks forward to the day that justice can be served."

janalal4, as an RN, do you find it odd that there is little to no discussion about the distinction between being under anesthesia and being asleep?

The two are not the same at all, from what I understand - but I'm not a nurse so I don't know. It's been bothering me, though. Wonder what an anesthesiologist would describe the two states... maybe "mild" or light sedation is the same as sleep?

I don't think Michael Jackson was lightly sedated if the anesthesia caused him to stop breathing, but again, I'm only guessing.

And curious.

Stop it with the addict crap!!
The drugs that were found in his system clearly state that what he was sufferin from was insomnia, and he was using all these medication to get some sleep, granted, it was the wrong medication, wrongly administered by the wrong doctor... that doesn't make him some sort of crack head you idiots.

Think About It... You Be the Judge    

Are you guys ready for this: On Jermaine left something for everyone to read... what a jerk.
On the day Michael's cornorer's report is released...

Friday 28 August
By Jermaine

Buy the song "Smile", watch the Vienna concert and go see the MJ movie in late October. Show MJ how much you loved him by buying MJ merchandise. It is what MJ would have wanted.

Here was my response:

I'v seen enough of what has happened to Michael.
The only reports I'd like to hear now are: Michael is now resting in Peace and finally has a normal burial.
I've spent many sleepless nights since his death, just thinking of him laying in a cold basement. All alone, while people and family go on with their lives at the advantage of Michael.

I'm just waiting for closeure from LAPD on who is responsible for Michael's unnecessary death.
Their is a long list of people responsible and I hope and pray everyone involved is held responsible. I really don't care how they are related... MY OPINION ONLY

It is nice to know that Michael's Children have their own bedrooms now. This way they will have the oppertunity to private time for themselves.
After all, this is really their home. Michael owns this house and the Children should always come first.

Michael's brothers have made enough money by now to finally move out and can afford to get their own places.
These are my Opinions Only..
You only feel with you heart and mine is breaking for Michael.

CAKE- no sleep & being anesthetized are not the same at all. In sleep you get restorative(or refreshing) REM sleep(when you dream & have rapid eye movement). REM sleep is considered to be the period of sleep where your brain refreshes & restores itself to be able to function anew the next day. Anesthesia is a level more closely resembling a comatose state. It is not restorative which is the great tragedy here. MJ might have thought he was sleeping but he wasn't getting the kind of sleep that would do him any good!! This is just awful. He was so misguided.

The way Dr. Murray pored drugs into Michaels system seems more and more like he was trying to sedate i person who kept on nagging him. It`s like a child who keeps on screaming till you get to a state where you feel like you could........... (i think you know what a mean.)

I still can't understand how and why the Jacksons did not do more to protect the children, such as calling in children's services when they knew MJ's drug addiction was out of control.

76. I agree with comment number 11, the Jacksons have to live with themselves in the knowledge that if one of them had had the guts to get Michael help, he would still be here now.
We all know what he died of, and Murray should go to jail for his huge part in the whole sorry story.
As for that load of freeloaders, The Jackson family, time to get a job boys ! Earn your own living, your meal ticket is gone, and none of you helped him !!

There is not a way for them to have successfully helped MJ.
MJ was seeking his independence from his family, he was surrounded by powerful enablers, and he had the security to keep his family away.

It's not as easy as you think when you are dealing with an enormously wealthy and independent ADULT.

a total fan    

So now it official and this part of the investigation can proceed. I am glad they did not do a full disclosure, because this might suggest that a full in depth investigation is still going forward. I wonder if many more people are involved in his murder. I CAN'T believe I just type murder in connection with Michael Jackson it just feel so wrong. And this should finally put to rest all those hoax theories. The coroner said "Michael Jackson's death" not John Doe. Maybe now he can Rest In Peace.

To #82, maybe Murray already dead; only nobody have seen him so far so noone knows that he IS dead.
