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."

Michael Jackson was a drug addict. Michael Jackson craved medication. Michael Jackson surrounded himself with people who provided Michael with all the drugs he wanted in exchange for $$$$. Doctors and lawyers are professionals in their field in exchange for $$$$ for their professional services. Some lawyers, Harvey Levin is an example, get out of the the lawyering industry and become news reporters for $$$$.

58. 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.


53. 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.

Well that is not exactly true and from some one who has a doctor in the family,
if you think this kind of thing is only happening among doctors that can be bought
you are sadly mistaken. Just because the loss of life if not a celebrity at the hands
of a quack doctor it is still a loss of life. This kind of thing happens to the poor too.
Bad medical attention is a problem and that is what this was. So it is not about
buying a doctor. It is more about a doctor who practices ethical medicine and
not BS.

So if the autopsy was unsealed and TMZ received a copy of it, post the whole thing so people can read it themselves, instead of the dribble TMZ keeps posting.

PS
Since when do the put bodies in the ambulance with head at the back of the ambulance door?? Don't the patient's head go up by the driver? Was it for the perfect "proof Michael is dead shot"? And that last photo that was taken ... why is his skin normal in color (for Michael)? If you were cardiac arrest for over an hour... wouldn't you blue/grey?? Now... I'm NOT saying that one of his impersonators didn't possibly die. I just don't think MJ is dead based on the stuff I've watched/read/heard. And I'm not some crazy obsessed fan living in denial of MJ's death.

You are mistaken about MJ's location in the ambulance. He was loaded head first with his head resting between the knees of a EMT who was sitting in a captains chair located at the bulkhead of the ambulance (right behind the driver seat separated by a wall) while he was trying to resuscitate Michael. The picture that you reference was shot through the side door of the ambulance on the passenger side, not thru the doors on the rear of the ambulance.

Claire:

Did you watch all the videos in their entirety? I mean too many things just don't add up. A cardiologist doing cpr for an hour before the bodyguard called 9-1-1 (which I'm amazed he's never been interviewed. . atleast not to my knowledge) and a cardiologist not even knowing how to administer proper cpr (on a hard surface)?? What do you think about the two dave dave videos on youtube?? Do you notice anything odd...

Come out of hiding.... hmmm.... I would love to hope so.... but I doubt it. How do you explain "that" to the officials? Now... just a thought... he could always possibly come back as "one of his many impersonators". By then this story will have died down a bit ... then he could live as a "mj impersonator". hmmmmmmm.... just a spur of the moment random thought!

hmm tim interesting word there you keep repeating in you post "PRESCRIBED BY" meaning that MJ
could not cook this stuff up in his kitchen. Hmm lets see that would mean that a so called
'DOCTOR' who was supposed to be practicing medicine actually gave a patient an addictive
drug over and over and one of them eventually killed him.

That was at his house not in his system. The toxicology report said he had no other drugs in his system except for what Dr. Murray gave him. I don't know about you but if someone came into my home they would find old meds in my bathroom I didn't finish taking, and don't plan too. I just haven't disposed of them yet. Plan and simple the drugs that cause Michael's death came straight from Dr. Murray.
