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.

First peek at Jacko's tomb

Gone but not forgotten!

Here is the first photo of Michael Jackson's final resting place -- a regal tomb adorned with flowers, framed photos, letters and other souvenirs.

The tributes were left in the crypt at the Forest Lawn Memorial Park and Mortuary in Glendale, Calif., by longtime Jacko pal and makeup artist Karen Faye, sources told The Post.

Jackson's family picked Forest Lawn's Great Mausoleum section for its high security.

At the mausoleum's entrance, visitors are greeted by a huge stained-glass reproduction of da Vinci's "The Last Supper."

But to get any farther inside, they have to be on a preapproved list.

Faye, who made up Jackson, 50, for his journey into eternity, has been collecting Jacko trinkets for weeks.

She's on the list of approved visitors, and she has been personally taking the tributes to the crypt herself every other week since Jackson's funeral on Sept. 3, sources said.

"She feels like she's the friend of the fans, that she's the only thing that can connect the fans to Michael now," said a source close to Faye.

"This is very important to her because she knows the fans loved Michael so much. She does this for them, especially those who traveled to be near Michael."

I AGREE #30. THIS STORY HAS BEEN CHANGED SO MANY TIMES...AND WAY TOO MUCH TIMES HAS PASSED....STORIES MADE UP TO ACCOUNT TO TIME FRAMES. WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON???????

MURRAY WASN'T WORTH THE MONEY HE WAS BEING PAID. HE WASN'T LOOKING AFTER THE WELL BEING OF HIS PATIENT.

AND OF COURSE HIS GIRLFRIEND IS GOING TO COME UP WITH THAT STORY....SOMEONE HAS TO STICK BY HIM.(MURRAY).

MICHAEL WAS AN ADDICT.....
MURRAY WAS HIS DEALER......
DEALER OVERDOSED HIM.......

THATS MANSLAUGHTER IN ANYONES LANGUAGE.

COME ON ........JUSTICE FOR MICHAELS CHILDREN.

Michael expected Dr. Murrey to sort of speak "I'll be there.", if Michael got into distress with cardiac arrest from the propofol. Dr Murrey did not want Michael to die, and did try to save his life when he realized michael was not breathing.
Did Dr Murrey murder Michael? - NO
Is Dr Murrey guilty of involuntary manslaughter? - Maybe
Michael, and Dr Murrey both knew they were not supposed to be using the propofol for sleeping, and Dr Murrey was not an expert on even getting the right staff in case something did happen to Michael. - This is a case for an accident that killed Michael, not involuntary manslaughter. - Dr. Murrey needs to walk free from the charges of killing Michael, with no fault to Dr Murrey on Michael's accential death.

Joe Jackson is illiterate    

YOU dunce-head Conspiracy theorists, put all Murray's actions together on the morning of MJ's death and tell me how the hellyou all get AEG + Motolla + whoever name you want to pull out of a bag??? THIS sh*t head Murray at 57 years old on the phone w/girlfriend when he should be watching MJ, holding his wrist to make sure his pulse is okay etc.?? THERE IS NO ONE ELSE RESPONSIBLE FOR MJ'S DEATH OTHER THAN MURRAY despite what MJ's relatives would like to hear...They'd like nothing better than to sue big corporations...but it aint gonna happen. Go after MURRAY!! He did it alone. BTW there is no 400 mil dollar insurance as I saw some fool write somewhere. The insurance was minimal. YHINGS ARE JUST WHAT THEY SEEM, YOU JACKASSES (that includes vulture Joe J and media whore Latoya).

NOTHING IAN HALPERIN SAYS IS TO BE BELIEVED. HE HAS BEEN CAUGHT IN MANY LIES RE MJ. REMEMBER HE MAKES HIS MONEY THIS WAY. HE WAS NEVER CLOSE TO MJ AS HE SOMETIMES CLAIM. I much prefer J Randy Taborelli; he is more credible.

The leak of the autopsy report had a lot of untruths, example that MJ weighed 110 or 115 lbs. This is a lie. The real report states that he weighed 135 or 137 lbs. You can't believe these leaks - everyone is into sensationalism!

pie - this death was more than an accident. Dr Murray was hired as a doctor specifically to guard Michael Jackson's life in case anything went wrong with the propofol. He did not prepare himself for that. He did not monitor the patient properly, he had no equipment to jumpstart the heart in case it stopped, and he didn't know how to call 911. He had not rehearsed a crisis in his head, he had no plan, which he was hired to have. When he finally administered CPR, compressing the rib case, he did it so badly he broke ribs (remember the blood residue in the ventilator tube? Would MJ even have survived this clumsy doctor's attempt to provide CPR?)

Add to all of this that he should never have taken the job in the first place, since propofol should only be giving in a hospital with a full staff and emergency equipment, and you must come to the conclusion that we are dealing with manslaughter and medical malpractice. It can't be anything else, and why he was not charged months ago is a mystery.

I don't believe the bastard! He's lying through his teeth! Dr. Murray along with many others are to blame for MJ's death! LAPD, the eyes of the world are on you right now. Let's hope and pray that you do the right thing,don't make any slip ups, and arrest the people responsible. The fans want the truth and we will not be silenced until the whole truth comes out. I think that he died a long time before the paramedics were called . . . sounds very suspicious,cold and calculating to me, not to mention others having a hand in it. I hope the charges will render the death penalty . . . the people responsible DEFINITELY DESERVE IT! MJ you will be missed and loved for all eternity. Love you more!

I agree Ian Halperin is not to be trusted. I don't know if Michael was gay or not. To be honest it isn't any of my business since I wasn't the one he chose as a sexual partner. I do know that Michael repeatedly said he was not homosexual. Now, the problem I have with these "secret gay lovers" is that if Michael wanted them to be a secret and they respected his wishes while he was alive why in the H3ll would they disrespect his wishes when he died and go to the tabloids(what Michael hated the most) or the likes of Ian Halperin? Ian Halperin is a known lair. I think Ian Halperin is disgusting. I saw him in an interview and I was so sickened by him I had to turn it off. I'm hoping someone will sue him for his lies on MJ as soon as Dr. Murray goes down. Personally I'll believe MJ that he wasn't homosexual since he is the only one that would really know 100%.

TMZ don't believe this story. The first report on what happened from murray is what's right in what happened that day. There was a longer span in him finding Michael and he left that room and made them three calls for the amount of time that was reported. This so called girlfriend is going to lie to save his a-- because his her money maker and she knows if he goes to prison she won't be living in a nice lifestyle anymore. Don't trust her no more than murray. She was probably told by him and someone else on what to say. Believe there was enough time between the time Michael died and her testifying for the real story to be changed. he knows he did this to Michael and others as well and you all can put up what she claimed to had said but the fans really know what happened that day. Michael was giving the drug that would make him pass away and this so called doctor knew it and so did others. Hope she gets what's coming to her. She's just as bad as murray and the others. May God help the DA and police put this individual or individuals in prison for life, or seek the death penalty for them.
