Eyewitness: Dr. Conrad Murray Hid the Propofol

3/22/2010 5:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Eyewitness: Dr. Conrad Murray TMZ has learned the man who called 911 at Michael Jackson's house the day he died told police Dr. Conrad Murray hid bottles of Propofol from family members and authorities.

The witness -- bodyguard Alberto Alvarez -- told cops he saw Dr. Murray running around the room hiding Propofol bottles in a closet near the room where the doctor administered the drug to Jackson.

Authorities found bottles of the anesthetic in what looks like a secret compartment area of the closet.

A source close to Dr. Murray told TMZ Alvarez made the statement two months after Jackson's death ... in the office of his lawyer, Carl Douglas ... when Alvarez was questioned again by cops. Douglas, by the way, is also a lawyer for the Jackson family.

The source says Alvarez' statement contradicts what he told cops the day of Jackson's death. The source says Alvarez never told cops at the scene about hiding Propofol.

The source notes ... and we have confirmed ... Dr. Murray told cops two days after Jackson's death where the Propofol bottles could be found.

As we first reported, one of the bottles of Propofol in the closet was empty with a large tear in the rubber stopper. Law enforcement sources believe Dr. Murray may have connected the large bottle of Propofol directly into the IV and a massive amount of the drug, they believe entered Jackson's system and killed him.

UPDATE
: We're also told Alvarez told cops during the interview in Douglas' office that he saw a milky white substance in an IV bag. As we first reported the IV bag in the room contained no traces of Propofol.

When I heard that Dr's eyes were glazed and in the look of state of shock. I knew there was something fishy going on. Especially when I read that he suddenly disappeared out of the room when the family was there. I've never trusted Dr. Murray nor his motives.
He needs to go straight to prison and not collect $200.00, not pass go and lock him up right then and there. Too much evidence seems to be mounting up against him anyway. That's why this investigation is taking too long. They know there's more to find and need to be very thorough because remember? This is Michael Jackson who passed away and if something doesn't go the way the fans expect it to, then I see another Rodney King riot. I'll be there to defend Michael. Love you and miss Mike

Were is the news here? Wasn't this part of the autopsy-report? Everybody knows where he was hiding the propofol. I think the "so called" witness just wants some attention.
