Michael Jackson Coroner Report - House of Drugs

2/8/2010 5:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has just obtained a copy of the full L.A. County Coroner's report in the death of Michael Jackson -- which until now was under seal. The conclusion is clear ... Propofol killed the singer.

Michael Jackson

According to the report, the manner of death is homicide and the conclusion is based on the following 4 items:

1. Circumstances indicate the Propofol and the benzodiazepines were administered by another.

2. Propofol was administered in a non-hospital setting without any appropriate medical indication.

3. The standard of care for administering Propofol was not met. Recommended equipment for patient monitoring, precision dosing and resuscitation was not present.

4. The circumstances do not support self-administration of Propofol.

The Coroner's report was under wraps until the criminal complaint was filed and it will be a centerpiece in the prosecution of Dr. Conrad Murray on charges of involuntary manslaughter.

UPDATE: In the Coroner's report, the scene at Jackson's house is described in detail, and the bedroom sounds like a hospital. There was a chair next to the bed -- "reportedly the decedent's doctor sat here." Also there -- a green oxygen tank, prescription meds, medical supplies, a box of catheters, disposable needles and alcohol pads. Also found -- near the foot of the bed ... a closed bottle of urine.

As we first reported, authorities found 11 bottles of Propofol in the house -- 3 100 ml vials and 8 20 ml vials.

Also, there was talk about Jackson's hair and reports he was bald. In fact, the Coroner's report says, "The decedent's head hair is sparse and is connected to a wig."

UPDATE: As for what drugs were found in Michael Jackson's house ... authorities found Diazepam (for anxiety) prescribed by Dr. Murray, Lorazepam (for anxiety) prescribed by Dr. Murray and Temazepam (for insomnia) prescribed by Dr. Murray. Authorities also found Clonazepam (for panic disorders) prescribed by Dr. Allan Metzger, Trazodone (an anti-depressant) prescribed by Dr. Metzger. And they found Tizanidine (a muscle relaxer) prescribed to Omar Arnold (a Jackson alias) prescribed by Dr. Arnold Klein. There was also an empty vial of Propofol injectable emulsion and an empty glass vial of a Flumazenil injection (which reverses effects of sedation) and a broken syringe.

As we first reported, authorities found 11 vials of Propofol ... 3 100 ml vials and 8 20 ml vials. None of the bottles had prescription directions, patient or doctor names.

They also found liquid Midazolam (anti-anxiety), Lorazepam liquid (injectable) and 14 capsules of ephedrine (for narcolepsy and depression), caffeine aspirin, Zanaflex (a muscle relaxer) and Prednisone (for skin conditions). There was also Azithromycin (an antibiotic), prescribed by Dwight James/Cherilyn Lee and the patient name was Kathlyn Hursey.

UPDATE: An anesthesiologist who consulted with the Coroner said there are "NO reports of its use (Propofol) for insomnia relief, to my knowledge. The only reports of its use in homes are cases of fatal abuse."

asja...sure "The autopsy report is a FAKE !"
and you have a problem when it comes to speaking about others.

You remind me of something very cruel someone said to a very sensitive friend of mine, a long time ago.

I pray for people the likes of you.

That's right! My sister is a nurse anesthetist (gives anesthesia with propofol), and she told me months ago that all those things would have been necessary to properly administer propofol. Murray was a greedy idiot. Manslaughter is the perfect charge for him. He should go to jail.

I agree it was certainly a bd decision and lack of thinking on the face of the Dr but again, he was not set out on killing MJ.

Try seeing this from his point, don't get me wrong i am a DIE HARD MJ fan but i am trying to see all points here and i dont see Murry as someone who tried to kill MJ.

He was sadly, addicted to drugs and "YES" people. Life would have caught up to him and its sad he didn't think more of his children and his family to get out of the life style and make some good healthy decisions.

Diane Dimond and Stacey Brown and all the Michael Jackson haters out there and the media they keep saying that Michael Jackson was a junkie drug addict who killed himself with drugs.Now that the truth is out,what do they all have to say for themselves?Michael Jackson died at the hand of another person Dr. Conrad Murray.It was a homicide.Michael Jackson did not shoot himself with drugs and die.Somebody else administered the drugs to him and killed him.

Pretty strange, since the first autopsy was found inconclusive, and now it says propofol is the killer... Why wasn't this stated on the first autopsy report, Or was there a revision made? This whole story stinks!

I suspect that Murray will get off on the fact that the crime scene was not immediately cornered off from family members in the days following Michael's death. The crime scene was compromised because according to the police and investigators at the time there was "no criminal investigation" underway.

You left out the part about his body being riddled with self- administered needle marks. He committed suicde, let's face it. This DR is just a scapegoat.
