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."

There are many web sites dedicated to honoring the heroic men and women who have given their lives, not only in Iraq but Afghanistan, Vietnam, Korea, World War II, World War I, the list goes on and on - but this isn't one of them. This is a tabloid gossip web site about Michael Jackson. If you want to honor one of this country's true heroes I am sure all you have to do is Google it and you will find tons of sites.

For sure, at least, his medical license will be suspended for years. Manslaughter? Is medical negligence a misdemeanor on which manslaughter can be grounded? Tough criminal case. But even if a likely losing criminal case, the authorities have to put Dr. Flaky through the grinder as a penalty anyway. Imagine the conspiracy theories that would fly if they did not charge him.

Thanks for getting the report. Toxicology results? Any other drugs found, such as for vertiligo? I think MJ's pal Dr. Creepy Skin Doc said there were other drugs. Defense will certainly look into adverse drug interactions.

Who do you think asked Dr. Conrad to administer the drugs. He asked others to do it. That means he was culpable.
That means MJ was taking drug, he just needed someone to administer them.!

Do you think that this is our only interest? Would you be surprised to know that perhaps some of us who post here are also veterans? That perhaps we post in other forums (veteran forums) as well? Or how bout that maybe some of us perform charity work when we can. Grow up US Army Vet. Widen your gaze. You narrow, simple minded hater.

14. 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.

@moveover - I can tell by your post you're trying to atoganize someone. the only reason I copied it was to point out - that Harvey did in deed say several months ago that MJ body was riddled with needle marks including his neck - which I knew was a complete LIE. being that Harvey is a Mj hater, and he certainly is, if this autopsy supported his claim he for sure would have it available for all to read. MJ is so loved!! no matter what the haters say, it won't change a thing. Michael Jackson IS a beautiful person and ALWAYS will be.

ok if you don't care about Michael Jackson fine. But this is important
because this man is a doctor a cardiologist. Doctors like this can be working
on your family member. So yes if they step out of line and someone dies because
of it we do want it stopped so the next victim won't be someone you love. get it.

muchos están deseosos de que éste juicio se realize, otros tienen miedo de que se dicte una sentencia, porque el veredicto en el caso de Michael sentará, establecerá un precedente que creará jurisprudencia

many people are anxious that this judgment was execute, others are afraid to deliver a ruling, because the verdict in Michael case, establish a precedent and create a jurisprudence


THANK YOU MICHAEL!

Michael Jackson was one of God's Angels. He went to sleep and never woke up. God does not want his chosen few to suffer the way Jesus did. We all should be so lucky to die such a peaceful death on judgement day! RIP Michael I will miss you.

When did you see the official autopsy was inconclusive? It was pending toxology reports and as soon as those came in, Propofol was cited by the coroner as the cause of death back at the end of August.

If you're going to make statements, you need to check facts

12. 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!

YES, THIS GREEDY BASTARD OF A DOCTOR KILLED MJ BUT SO WHAT! EVEN IF HE IS FOUND GUILTY HE ONLY HAS TO SERVE 4 YEARS---4 YEARS!! MJ LOSES HIS LIFE AND DOC PROP GOES BEHIND BARS FOR A SHORT VACATION. IF YOU WATCH THE 'THIS IS IT' DVD YOU WILL SEE A MASTER AT WORK. IT MADE ME MORE OF A FAN THAN I WAS BEFORE. WHAT A CONCERT THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN. I FEEL SAD FOR THE FAMILY WHEN THEY LEARN HIS 50 YEARS ON EARTH EQUALS 4 FOR THE MAN THAT MURDERED HIM!!

I don't think anyone of us has to worry about having enough money to "buy" an unethical doctor and have him do whatever we want.
