Dr. Murray: Why Apologize? I Did Nothing Wrong

3/28/2010 12:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Conrad MurrayTMZ has learned Dr. Conrad Murray has not reached out to Michael Jackson's family to apologize for the death of the singer. As for why Dr. Murray has not apologized ... he believes he did nothing improper that would have led to Jackson's death.

A source connected to Dr. Murray tells TMZ ... Dr. Murray does not believe the Propofol he administered to the singer killed him, not withstanding the L.A. County Coroner's conclusion that Jackson died from a lethal overdose of the anesthetic.

The source tells TMZ the reason Dr. Murray never told paramedics about administering Propofol is because he had no idea the drug was a factor in Jackson's demise.

As for allegedly hiding Propofol bottles in the closet at Jackson's house ... Dr. Murray's people note it was the doctor himself who informed LAPD detectives two days after Jackson's death that the bottles were in the closet.

On June 27, 2009, Detective Smith and Officer Martinez met with MURRAY and his attorneys for an interview.
MURRAY stated that he was JACKSON's personal physician. MURRAY had been treating JACKSON for insomnia for approximately the past six weeks. He had been giving JACKSON 50 mg of PROPOFOL (DIPRIVAN) diluted with LIDOCAINE (XYLOCAINE), every night via intravenous drip (IV) to assist JACKSON in sleeping.
MURRAY felt that JACKSON may have been forming an addiction to PROPOFOL (DIPRIVAN) and tried to wean JACKSON off of the drug.

On June 22, 2009, two days prior to his death, he gave JACKSON 25 mg PROPOFOL (DIPRIVAN), along with LORAZEPAM (ATIVAN),
and MIDAZOLAM (VERSED). JACKSON was able to sleep with this mixture of medications.
On June 23, 2009, he gave JACKSON LORAZEPAM (ATIVAN) and MIDAZOLAM (VERSED) only, withholding any PROPOFOL (DIPRIVAN), and
JACKSON was able to sleep.

On June 25, 2009 at approximately 0130 hours, he again tried to induce sleep without the PROPOFOL (DIPRIVAN) and gave JACKSON a 10mg tab of VALIUM.
JACKSON was unable to sleep and at approximately 0200 hours, MURRAY injected JACKSON with 2mg LORAZEPAM (ATIVAN) after dilution, pushed slowly into his IV.
JACKSON was still unable to sleep. At approximately 0300 hours, MURRAY then administered 2mg MIDAZOLAM (VERSED) to JACKSON after dilution, also pushed slowly into his IV.JACKSON remained awake and at approximately 0500 hours, MURRAY administered another 2mg LORAZEPAM (ATIVAN), after dilution, pushed slowly into is IV.

JACKSON remained awake and at approximately 0730 hours, MURRAY administered another 2mg of MIDAZOLAM (VERSED), after dilution, into his IV.
MURRAY stated he was continuously at JACKSON's bedside and was monitoring him with a pulse oximeter.According to DR.MURRAY the pulse oximeter was
connected to JACKSON's finger and measured his pulse and oxygen statistics.

JACKSON remained awake and at approximately 1040 hours MURRAY finally administered 25mg of PROPOFOL (DIPRIVAN), diluted with LIDOCAINE (XYLOCAINE)via IV drip to keep JACKSON sedated, after repeated demands/requests from JACKSON. JACKSON finally went to sleep and MURRAY stated that he remained monitoring him.

After approximately 10 minutes, MURRAY stated he left JACKSON's side to go to the restroom and relieve himself.MURRAY stated he was out of the room for about 2 minutes maximum. Upon his return, noticed that JACKSON was no longer breathing.
MURRAY began single man cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) at once. MURRAY also administered 2mg FLUMANEZIL (ANEXATE) to JACKSON and called JACKSON's personal assistant MICHAEL AMIR WILLIAMS, with his cellular telephone for help. MURRAY reached WILLIAMS and requested than he send security upstairs for an emeregency.
MURRAY continued CPR, and after a few minutes without the security detail's response, he left JACKSON and ran to the hall and downstairs to the kitchen.
MURRAY asked the chef to send up PRINCE JACKSON, the eldest son, and returned to continue CPR.P.JACKSON responded upstairs and summoned the security detail. ALBERTO ALVAREZ went to the aid of MURRAY and called 911 via his cellular telephone.
MURRAY waited for the ambulance's arrival while conducting CPR, assumed care from the paramedics and accompanied them to the hospital.
MURRAY observed the treatment of JACKSON at UCLA Medical Center and assisted in notifying the family after JACKSON's death was pronounced.
MURRAY left the hospital after a while because he did not know that he was needed. MURRAY added that his doctor's bag was still at the residence and directed Officer Matinez to its exact location inside of JACKSON's residence. "

You know what makes me mad about this mess is that both were wrong Michael was a junkie! The DR. .Should not have been given him meds. That you give people that have surgeries at a hospital. NOT at his home!!!!This is what is wrong with DOCTORS that give stars what ever they want .Just for money .How many have to die before that stops! One More thing there are people out there that are in real pain and have a hard time getting what the need because of the junkies and this is sad. Everyone could see that Michael had a problem all you had to do was look at his face. You know not many people gave a crap about him until he died so many made fun of him and now its poor Michael and the bad Doctor .Shame on all of you. This is all I have to say about this and I am not going to read anymore about him! He is gone and he is part to blame too !!!

All of you Michael "haters" plese look up defence attorney Thomas
Mesereau who defended Michael in 2005.He is a man of integrity and intelligence,above all others.He just cut through all the bs thrown at Michael at the time.Look him up on You Tube.He is a defence lawyer primarily and can not defend Michael now.Sure he will not defend murray.

Oops,just 2 minutes and all went wrong!Had Michael been in a hospital setting with all that propofol in his body, intubated,monitored,--his anaesthesiologist could well have affordedt the 2 min. to take a leak.

Are you serious? I'd say years and years of drug abuse.Plus he had lupus, but you don't see it anywhere in the autopsy report.
Do you even have any idea what desease he was suffering from? And i mean the one in his lungs.

Benzodoazepines incease the risk of respiratory failure when combined with propofol.Yes, i know he was supposed to have lupus and that it was not mentioned in the autopsy-results. My guess is as good as anybodys ,either he did not have it..or??,there are 2 kinds of lupus, a disseminated form that is rather serious and involves internal organs and the other one affects the skin.This one usually causes a butterfie- like rash over the nose and cheeks.
He did have an unexplained aerea of sort of scartissue over one shoulder. Past drugabuse was one of opiods as far as I know.Then
ofcourse he took hefty doses of benzoes.To my knowledge he had stopped the opioids some time ago,they in combination with propofol was sure to be deadly.The toxicology found none, not so far anyway.A guess; maybe the vitiligo + bleaching creams to even out skincolour caused some kind of rashes diagnosed or misdiagnosed as lupus.--And yes, the left lung had bronchiolitis,
something the good murray should have known, did the cardiologist have a stethoscope??? No mention if this was a chronic or an acute infection.Coroners statement;It did not play a role in his death.
Was there ever any bloodwork done to detect poss. infections? I think not.Anyway it points to the fact that the coroner felt his lungcapacity per se was OK.All bove mentioned meds need not have made him that feeble or sick, as long as he ate well and was mobile. Then enters the propofol.It is in a league of its own.
The window between feeling nicely, slightly out of it, actually it causes a s.c. disassociated state,expierienced as very pleasant and in higher dose brief unconsiousness with pleasant awakening w. some possible amnesia.I could go on at length about this,but it´s
too long to write.The point is PROPOFOL SHOULD NEVER EVER BE ADMI_
NISTERED OUTSIDE HOSPITAL SETTING or clinic with same equipment.
I cannot here go into the facts,again too long for a comment. The
point is that the window of safety is extremely narrow, feel good-stop breathing,drop dead That is why it is a good drug for proper anaesthesia ,but spells deadly danger for recreational use.This is what killed Michael,not his past substance abuse.Too much bezoes+ propofol+no intubation,vital signs monitoring etc is what killed him. murray was reckless and unable to say NO. He has/had a MD attatched to his name which makes him all the more culpable.
Michael already died, murray will stay alive,but needs to go to jail.Get yourself a PDR and read up on propofol..it has more than double the avarage length of instructions and warnings than any other drug.This is it, for now.

Why can't people believe that MJ was a major addict. He had the money to hire his own drug dealer essentually. I wish his family would atleast admit their brother had a problem and try to focus attention to the cause of addiction r/t prescription drugs that maybe will save someone elses life. Atleast then MJ death will not have been for nothing, which is what it is turning into! We can learn from this.
