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.

What a joke, yeah...but the drugs in the closet, released had the propofol bottles shown all over the place, and the home wasn't searched until 2 days after his 'death'.

OH, OK...let's be smart and leave the drugs at the scene but put them in the 'closet' cuz NO ONE is going to look in there. Crackin' up.

What a joke!

Don't you just hate when MORE LIES are told to coverup other lies? First, both of them are lying and the 911 call proves it. THERE WAS NEVER ANY INTENTIONS TO GIVE CPR and the 911 call gives it away. Now that the 911 Call makes it obvious intentional with the CARDIOLOGIST GIVING CPR ON THE BED, it's not an effort to make it appear he gave CPR when the 911 Call proved NO SUCH THING EVER HAPPENED AND THAT MJ WAS DEAD HOURS BEFORE THAT CALL WAS MADE. Why is it the only drugs found in MJ were the one's THAT DR. MURRAY GAVE HIM? How do we know MJ ever asked for anything. THIS WAS CARDIOLGIST DEALING WITH THE HEART. Why would Michael hire a CARDIOLOGIST to inject him with propofol when this isn't even a doctor experienced in that area? THIS WAS INTENTIONAL MURDER TO GAIN CONTROL OVER MICHAEL'S ASSETS. The media has REPEATEDLY LIED that MJ was broke but how is that possible when his 1/2 of the ATV/Sony Catalog is valued at $1 BILLION AND HE OWNED MIJAC, HIS OWN SONGS?

WACKO JACKO fans are just looking for a scapegoat. WACKO JACKO's
behavior and ultimately his death were his own fault. All Michael
jackson needed to do is look at the "man in the mirror" if he wanted
someone to blame for his issues.

For Sure    


I beg to differ with you and a quite a few others...

Sony did not need MJJ dead...All Sony had to do was let MJJ (please forgive me for what I am not going to say)...keep spending money ...not record...and they would have owned the catalog in a few months...nice and neatly ....

No they would have had the catalog by default...due to his upside down money situation...(no cash with assests)= upside down...

No Sorry to all.... Sony wanted him alive so they could get the catalog! It would not have been much longer! Like it or not!

132. drugs in the closet, drugs at the scene, drugs in a bag..thats a lot of drugs. still why were they some in a closet? why did murray want to go back to the house? hes a murderer. if he wasnt guilty there would of been no drugs in the closet and none in the bags. there would of been more at the scene.
