Conrad Murray's Call Before Michael Jackson 911

2/16/2010 6:42 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Minutes before Dr. Conrad Murray realized Michael Jackson was in deep distress, he left a voicemail for a patient about his heart scan.

Conrad Murray's Call Before Jackson 911

News of the World published the voicemail, in which Dr. Murray informed Bob Russell about his heart scan.

Dr. Murray left the voicemail at 11:54 AM.

TMZ broke the true timeline story -- that Dr. Murray called his girlfriend from Houston at 12:03 PM the day Jackson died -- 9 minutes after he left the voicemail for Russell.

Sources tell TMZ the girlfriend told cops ... approximately 5 minutes into the call, Dr. Murray abruptly dropped the phone and she then heard him administering CPR. Dr. Murray never came back to the phone and the call ended at 12:13 PM.

Jackson's bodyguard called 911 at 12:21 PM, approximately 13 minutes after Dr. Murray dropped the phone.

That's right. It's more than a lot of doctors would have done.

Conrad Murray left MJ alone with the IV propofol for HOURS and when he came back to stop the infusion, MJ was dead. Stone cold dead. And he has been trying to justify what he did every since. It won't work. He already told police he did it and the timeline. We are not stupid. We know you are lying your arrogant SOB.

***************************************

Yes, any rational person I think realizes that Michael was partly responsible for his own demise. But Murray is too, and should be punished with jail time. Here's the major difference between Michael's situation and the situtation of some of the other famous people you mentioned above -- Heath Ledger, River Phoenix, Belushi, etc. Only in Michael's case did the doctor (Murray) actually administer the fatal dose and then fail to monitor as he should have! All the others you mentioned ingested the drugs themselves. Yes, I'm sure Michael ingested plenty of drugs himself as well. But on that morning, Dr. Murray carelessly gave him an overdose of the drug that directly killed him (remember, Michael died from acute propofol intoxication), and he gave it to him in an improper setting with improper monitoring. Dr. Murray must pay for this kind of gross negligence. Although I don't believe Murray did it with the intention of killing Michael, Michael did die directly at his (Murray's) hands.

21. 20. 17. TMZ you can do your own experiment- put Dr. Murray under with Propofol and let Joe Jackson watch over him and see how long it takes for Joe to start giving CPR. Maybe Joe will walk out the room and make a few calls first or better yet, perform CPR on the bed or maybe just do nothing, just like Dr. Murray did.

I didn´t write that.

Soooo Dr. Murray puts his "patient" under without proper monitoring and equipment and goes making telephone calls ("went to the bathroom for two minutes" BAH!). Gross negligence.
GROSS!

Or is this his construed "alibi". Leaving a message on a voice mail... in a calm voice.... hmmmm
Could be. I am sure he is an accomplished liar with extended experience in that field. Think about all the times he must´ve called his countless ex-wives and girlfriends from strip-joints or from his newest flame´s apartment, stating in a calm voice: "Honey, I have to work late tonight, smooches..."

We all know that Murray's attorneys are gonna downplay the part that Michael actually DIED by the hands of Murray. They will point to things like - Michael Jackson was a drug addict -Michael had a
prehistory with propofol- other drugs were found in his system -
Murray is just one doctor out of many, etc.

All that is true, and if Michael hadn’t gotten drugs from Dr.
Murray it would probably have been by someone else, but that does notchange the fact that it WAS Dr. Murray who killed him.

I don’t have anything personal against Dr. Murray as a person;
it’s just the reality that he killed Michael Jackson.

As Harvey has speculated ( I know he is not always popular around
here)Dr. Murray's legal team can win this case if they represent it
well, confuse the jury by going down in technical details and maybe even play the race card.

Lock up all the enablers.

On another note, watched "Michael Jackson Life of a Superstar" on YouTube. Its pretty informative. Never came across this video clip. While the ending was tinged with sadness, one consolation is that MJ has millions of loyal fans. We miss u, MJ. You're gone too soon.
