Conrad Murray Under Investigation in TX

11/23/2009 2:42 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Conrad Murray Under Investigation in TXDr. Conrad Murray's Houston, TX patients may be interested .... the Texas Medical Board is investigating the good doc.

DEA sources tell TMZ its investigation into Dr. Murray's prescribing practices in connection with Michael Jackson is still active. When the DEA investigates a TX doctor ... the DEA contacts the Texas Medical Board and that routinely triggers a Texas Medical Board investigation.

And law enforcement sources tell us the Texas Medical Board has been working with the DEA on the Conrad Murray probe.

Dr. Murray's rep could not be reached for comment.

They were in it for the money    

Nobody ever said this Dr. would really be seeing patients! He could be going over medical data. For those who think by contacting the medical board to lodge a complaint be aware you first have to be a patient or family member in which to do so, otherwise it is senseless to flood their offices with information and nonsense complaints they ALREADY know about. Just like calling LAPD. They put 2 officers in charge of your calls so you won't be bothering the actual detectives working a very important case.

So, Dr. Murray is trying to work. This wouldn't have happened if AEG or Tohmme actually paid this Dr. I blame that part on Tohmme, he is greedy and didn't want to part with the money. He should have paid him up front, somebody should have. Wonder what happened to this fools money BEFORE he was hired to tend to MJ? Guess it aint easy when you are a total screw up with finances.

The net is closing in. How has this killer quack even got the brass neck to show his face in public again. Is he really THAT stupid as to think he'll EVER be free from it all. He's guilty and he'll eventually "do an Evan Chandler". Good riddance!!!

so wrong    

MJ slamming out 4 AMA's last night. There will never be another Michael Jackson, his creativity, his talent, his dance, his lyrics, his VOICE, his moves, genius; the head tilt, the hat, the slamming his jacket back, moonwalk, spins - toes, everything. He just created and made this stuff up from pure talent.

Let's see where Taylor Swift is in her 40's - 50's, or even in 10 years, i'm just sayin'.

Never gonna be a talent like Michael Jackson, becasue it was raw, pure and magical.

You rock, MIKE. Coolest dude out there!

Are you kidding me !!!!!! Texas Medical Board Who ????? they will not do anything about Murray they will accept a under the table donation and he will go on business as usual, if they do something it will be because all eyes are on them and they cant afford to make a public mistake, Texas is the worse for medical mal-practice do you know how many people have received injury, disablities, or death from medical staff such as doctors, nurses, cna etc... from mis conduct to medication errors that has caused harm or death and nothing has been done to them, please they should have kept him in california cause now that he is on texas grounds he will just get away with murder again ,,, i do not like the man and his greed got him where he is now no one told him to do what he did and he can not blame no one but himself what did he think that we the michael jackson fans would feel sorry for him crying on TV well look at the faces of michael's children see those tears and that is who i feel for, you was wrong to do what you did you still have not approached the jackson family to speak with them nothing..

and who arranged for them camera's to be in the church there is no camera's normally in church unless they boardcast on sunday's

so who bright ideal was that a plot to get sympathy well it didnt work we just seen how hard it was for him to make himself cry,, shame on you MUrray may god have mercy on your soul..... cause the public dont.........

Murray's attorneys are smart for putting him out in the public eye to try and make a defense that he can not earn a reputable living because of his past actions surrounding Michael's death.

Murray's attorneys are stupid for putting him out in the public eye because Michael's fans are already having a hay-day with the Texas Medical Board. The more we see of Murray, the more calls for legal action against Murray for his administering the lethal dose of Propofol that killed Michael.


Why is LAPD waiting till 2010 to take any actions against Murray?

15. This guy had the nerve to say at his church that he was just in the wrong place at the wrong time when Michael died,are you freaking kidding me??He had no business administrating propofol in the first place,he wasn't qualified to do that and he also had no business leaving the room or falling asleep while doing this.He doesn't want to be looking for any sympathy from me that is for sure!

By the way,why isn't there any stories about Michael winning 4 awards and setting a record at the AMA??If he had been nominated and lost them all you can bet the freaking media would have had stories about that.JERKS!!

Wow! Murray actually SAID THAT? I suppose thats a good way of looking at the situation so you can assume minimal responsibility for your actions & live with your own sorry a@@ every day. How 'fatalistic' of him. Like somehow, fate controlled whether MJ lived or died & whether HE would be the one who 'didn't have a chair when the music stopped playing'! LOL! What an a..hole!

Yeah, nothing about those awards. Now everyone seems to be explaining them away like, 'he got it because he died'. I knew that BS would start. You'll never hear a peep about it from Harvey, that's for sure.

This guy's medical license should be suspended in ALL STATES. Let him go back to the Carribean island he came from, and practice there. Don't worry Dr. Murray, be happy!

Poor Dr. Murray.

First, I must say that I am a Michael Jackson fan - but I can't help feeling sorry for Dr. Murray. He was in such dire financial straits that he would do something so unethical. His lack of judgement in this whole matter. Until he has been convicted of a crime, he should be able to practice medicine (if anyone will go to him). Me on the other hand . . . he couldn't prescribe a bayer aspirin for me.

Pay the doctor upfront?? I don't pay MY doctor upfront. Why should AEG have paid this guy a cent after using the skills he was hired for, or rather NOT having the skills that he was supposed to be hired to provide. You don't pay for an unsatisfactory meal in a restaurant or leave a big tip for a waitress for crappy service. Why pay a doc who thru his incompetence & lack of skills for which 'the job' required; especially after MJ's 'unsatisfactory outcome'? MURRAY WILL BE PAYING AEG & THE JAX CLAN BEFORE THIS IS ALL OVER WITH, NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND. Maybe Murray would do well to shutup about not getting paid & quietly consider that money to be kept by the estate for the benefit of MJ'S ORPHANED CHILDREN? Murray's got some 'big ones' doesn't he? LOL!
