Murray Allegedly Stopped CPR to Hide Drugs

3/22/2010 7:22 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Conrad Murray stopped administering CPR to Michael Jackson to collect drug vials ... this according to documents obtained by the Associated Press.


According to bodyguard Alberto Alvarez (right), Dr. Murray stopped CPR and handed Alvarez drug vials and told him to put the vials in a bag.

Alvarez told investigators when he went into the room he saw an IV attached to Jackson's leg. Also Jackson's mouth and eyes were wide open and there was no sign of life.

According to the AP, Michael Jackson's kids, Prince and Paris, entered the room and cried as they watched Dr. Murray administer mouth-to-mouth.

According to Alvarez, Dr. Murray took several vials and told Alvarez to put them in a plastic bag, then told Alvarez to put the plastic bag in a canvas bag. Alvarez also says Dr. Murray told him to remove the IV that contained a white milky substance (Propofol has this quality) in another canvas bag. Alvarez didn't say where the bags went.

The report says, after Jackson was pronounced dead at UCLA Medical Center, Murray said he needed to go back to the mansion to get cream Jackson had "so the world wouldn't find out about it." The statement did not get more specific.

As TMZ first reported, Alvarez -- who called 911 -- told cops several months after Jackson's death that Dr. Murray hid bottles of Propofol in a closet so family members and cops wouldn't find them.

Sources connected with Dr. Murray's defense say the doctor didn't hide anything.

531. 503. janalal4: Sorry, Jana but it still doesn't make sense to me. As a professional in this field the stories of the people involved do not add up. I was not talking about the paramedics ceasing CPR on site after having consulted their bosses at UCLA. If they stopped CPR at Mike's house because it was unsuccessful it makes no sense at all that the doctors at UCLA restarted performing CPR at UCLA.

I think the A.G. should upgrade the charge to fit the severity of the crime. Murray didn't do the CPR properly, with only one hand + he stopped every now & then, to tiny up the crime scene. He really killed MJ. They talked about this on Nancy Grace last night. They had a doctor showing the viewers how CPR should be done. With both hands, and don't stop, till the blood flow started again to the brain. Janalal4, u are a nurse, I'm sure you agree that Murray really cost MJ his life.

I think that he is guilty and should spend the rest of his life in prison for what he has done. No way that a doctor could be in the room and a heart doctor at that and allow a person to die on his watch and now to turn around and say that MJ administered the drug to himselp, WOW, what a sap he is. To save his on hide from the murder that he has committed. Put him away for ever and all you haters get a life.

the coming decades, pharmacists are expected to become more integral within the health care system. Rather than simply dispensing medication, pharmacists will be paid for their patient care skills.
