Dr. Murray: Please Hold ... MJ is Dying

11/10/2009 3:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Murray and Michael JacksonDr. Conrad Murray was on the phone with his girlfriend as Michael Jackson was dying ... sources connected to the case tell TMZ.

We've learned Dr. Murray was on a cell phone with his girlfriend from Houston between 12:03 and 12:13 PM on June 25, 2009 -- the day Jackson died.

Sources say the girlfriend told LAPD detectives about 5 minutes into the call, she heard Dr. Murray abruptly drop the phone and then heard him administer CPR. The girlfriend said there was no indication Dr. Murray knew anything was amiss before dropping the telephone.

Sources say the girlfriend does not know if Murray was in the room with Jackson when he called her or if he walked in just before realizing MJ was in deep trouble.

The bodyguard called 911 at 12:21 PM, approximately 13 minutes after Dr. Murray dropped the phone.

It has been widely reported Dr. Murray was on the phone for 47 minutes before calling 911. It appears those calls were actually made before Dr. Murray realized Jackson was in distress.

Actually don't post as him anymore, I just reported him to TMZ and all his alias and disgusting porn driven emails, his comments have moved into porn and vulgar and I've had enough, he's turning people away from TMZ and they're not going to like it. He's doing this on here because he can't go anywhere else to do it or he'd be removed! He's been doing this for the last four - five days all night, all day, all morning!

WOW! Everyday...a Michael Jackson story. This poor guy will never be able to rest in peace.

Anyway, it's only a matter of time and all these doctors will be rounded up, charged, and hopefully, prosecuted. We should be able to trust that our doctors are looking out for our best interest, and not that their professional judgement is being swayed by money.

Was MJ dead when Murray discovered he was not breathing? If so, how long had he been dead? Is the story the paramedics found lividy in the body true?

She is lying to try to save the doc. Nope, nope I don't believe her! I don't believe him! Michael more than likely died hours before 12pm. What doctor does not realize someone has been dead for hours and starts CPR? Then does CPR on a bed? Nothing seems right at all about his story. What happen to the doctor saying there was no phone in the room and he didn't want to use his cell because he didn't know the address? Wasn't that his first excuse of why it took so long to call 911? It makes me sick this man is walking free making a mockery of our justice system (well, more of a mockery). Can we get on with this and arrested this man? The title to this post makes me want to cry!!

The 911 operator said "lets get him on the floor" meaning CPR isn't effective on a soft surface. The caller said there's a doctor here and after that it was like well never mind getting him on the floor, as long as the dumb a$$ Doctor is preforming CPR on the soft surface of a bed it must be OK then. Well it never OK to do CPR on a soft surface, don't even bother then. What kind of tard Doctor is he anyway.I hope he goes to jail!

50. Was MJ dead when Murray discovered he was not breathing? If so, how long had he been dead? Is the story the paramedics found lividy in the body true?

Posted at 3:08AM on Nov 10th 2009 by A.B.

That's what they reported on the 25th A.B. that MJ had probably been dead anywhere from 3-4 hours and lividity was present.

I have gone back many times over the past couple of months to relocate those reports and have not found even one of them.

WHY is my question to alot of discrepancies?

I know MMJ..You think this title makes you want to cry? Nothing compared to the title I read on June 25th or 26th in The News of The World..."Bodyguards Watch as Michael Jackson Lay Dying" and then reports that day and next about how MJ had been dead anywhere from 3-4 hours before EMTs arrived as indicated by the extent of lividity present. They also reported that they were not aware that it was MJ for about 10 minutes they thought he was an old fragile man. And that he had only patches of hair on his head and his entire body was riddled with needle injection sites old and new. They could not locate a usable vein.

It didn't just make me want to cry it made me almost physically ill and nauseated. How could he be dead for hours and nobody called for help?

Michael Jackson 'severely emaciated'
People News
Jun 29, 2009, 9:12 GMT

Michael Jackson was "severely emaciated" when he died.

The pop legend weighed just 51kg when he passed away last week after suffering a suspected cardiac arrest at his Los Angeles home.

Leaked autopsy details reportedly show the singer was a "virtual skeleton", whose stomach was empty except for partially-dissolved prescription pills.

It is understood he ate just one tiny meal a day.

His hips, thighs and shoulders were covered in needle marks, believed to be the result of narcotic painkillers the singer took three times a day.

There were also four injection sites near his heart - evidence of a failed bid to pump adrenaline directly into the organ in an attempt to restart it.

Medical examiners were also believed to be shocked by the surgery scars, which suggest Michael had at least 13 cosmetic procedures.

The bridge of his nose had vanished and its right side had collapsed.

He was reportedly wearing a wig at the time of his death. Underneath it, he was almost bald, with only "peach fuzz" covering his scalp.

He had several broken ribs and extensive bruising to his chest consistent with someone trying to revive him.

The singer also had unexplained bruises on his knees and the front of both shins and cuts and grazes on his back.

A source said: "Michael's family and fans will be horrified when they realise the appalling state he was in. He was skin and bone, his hair had fallen out and had been eating nothing but pills when he died.

"Injection marks all over his body and the disfigurement caused by years of plastic surgery show he'd been in terminal decline for years."

A second autopsy was carried out on Saturday (27.06.09) after the Jackson family was dissatisfied by the first one, which ruled out "foul play" but could not determine a cause of death.

Michael's funeral will reportedly be held on Wednesday (01.07.09).

His brother Tito said the family spent the weekend organising the send-off.

They have yet to decide whether it will be a public or private funeral.

Michael Jackson 'gay' allegations
People News
Jun 29, 2009, 12:02 GMT

Michael Jackson was a "homosexual

with a taste for young men", it has been alleged.

The late singer's unofficial biographer Ian Halperin claims he has spoken to two men Michael - who died of a suspected cardiac arrest last Thursday (25.06.09) - had relationships with.

Ian added although Michael - who was accused of sexual abuse by 13-year-old Jordan Chandler in 1993 and by 13-year-old Gavin Arvizo in 2003 - was attracted to guys who were younger than him, he was never interested in children.

Ian told Britain's Daily Mail newspaper: "It is clear to me that Michael was homosexual and that his taste was for young men, albeit not as young as Jordan Chandler or Gavin Arvizo.

"In the course of my investigations, I spoke to two of his gay lovers, one a Hollywood waiter, the other an aspiring actor. The waiter had remained friends, perhaps more, with the singer until his death last week. He had served Jackson at a restaurant, Jackson made his interest plain and the two slept together the following night. According to the waiter, Jackson fell in love."

Ian adds the waiter showed him evidence of his alleged affair with Michael, including photos of the pair together.

The writer explained: "Other witnesses speak of strings of young men visiting his house at all hours, even in the period of his decline. Some stayed overnight.

"When Jackson lived in Las Vegas, one of his closest aides told how he would sneak off to a 'grungy, rat-infested' motel - often dressed as a woman to disguise his identity - to meet a male construction worker he had fallen in love with."

Ian - who has written a book about Michael titled 'The Final Years Of Michael Jackson', and claimed the singer had just six months to live last December - has also spoken about Michael's deteriorating health. He claims the 50-year-old King of Pop suffered from skin blemishes and discoloured nails.

He explained: "I had established beyond doubt, for example, that Jackson relied on an extensive collection of wigs."

The writer also suggests Michael was suffering from a genetic condition called Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency which affected his lungs.

The condition means the lungs do not have enough protein to protect them, and Michael is said to have received injections of Alpha-1 antitrypsin produced from human plasma to help him.

Ian quotes a source as saying: "Yeah, that's what he's got. He's in bad shape. They're worried that he might need a lung transplant but he may be too weak. Some days he can hardly see and he's having a lot of trouble walking."
