Michael Jackson -- The Eyes Have It

4/6/2010 4:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson's eyes could be powerful evidence in favor of Dr. Conrad Murray.

Michael Jackson -- The Eyes Have It

TMZ broke the story -- Dr. Murray's lawyers will argue Jackson accidentally killed himself by self-injecting a lethal dose of Propofol into his bloodstream. As we reported, Dr. Murray says he left the bedroom for a short time, came back in and saw Michael with his eyes wide open and pupils dilated.

Medical experts who spoke with TMZ say if a patient is sleeping and dies of an overdose, their eyes most likely would not be open. The defense position -- Jackson woke up when Murray was out of the room, became frustrated he couldn't sleep, grabbed the Propofol bottle and "pushed it" -- killing himself.

If a jury believes Jackson's eyes were open, they could also believe Jackson was awake and, perhaps, capable of grabbing the Propofol bottle which was on the nightstand.

If it WAS true that Michael did it himself, why did the Dr. leave the medication and syringe within reach? Michael was supposed to be hooked to an IV...so he couldn't get up and look for it. It had to be within reach. Leave drugs in the reach of someone who has a history of drug problems??? Just another way the Dr. was reckless!

I remember when tmz's so-called physician source for an IM injection decided it meant Demerol when everyone with half a brain knows IM stands for intramuscular.

tmz's expert sources are a bad joke. Must be someones grandma who believes chicken soup will cure pneumonia.

Murray never said that he saw Michael with his eyes and mouth open. That was Alvarez's account.

if this is tried in downtown L.A., they will get an O.J. jury pool who will believe anything. all it takes is one juror as Harvey pointed out in TMZ's 4/5/10 tv show. the good doctor made 3 calls to Arnie Klein, M.D. when he saw MJ was non-responsive. approx. 80 mins. went by before calling 911. seems like a slam dunk but not with a downtown jury. i don't think this will be tried in the BevHills courthouse. even if it is, all it takes is one juror to buy into the defense's crap.

THINK TANK    

It will take more than Doubt as it is NOT a murder charge..A doctor can`t be charged with murder.They don`t have to prove attent..all they have to show is the doctor was`nt doing his job and that is a given.They than can sue for damages after this trial..just like the CBS flash MOB parents did to MJ for millions for thier child HO HO`s programmed.He was`nt doing his job that is what the charge is and tiz tmz knows that but is hyping for MORE money from MJ for viacommies same old sop as forever.Billions will be made off MJ and those billions with go into the hands of SONY CBS FOX VIACOM AOL same sop as before his death.Doctor will get slapped and back to his kilroy SS island HAMMER LEGS? voodo doct not a doctor at all

And thats the truth    

I am thinking that your muscles keep your eyelids shut. When you die, all of your muscle control is gone. That is why your bladder empties and the colon as well. My aunt died in her sleep and I remember my Mom saying her eyes were open as well as her mouth, so that is a crock of sh*t. I am sure the prosecution is going to have expert medical witnesses. I think they are grasping at straws here.
