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.

Are you kidding? The guy is a doctor - he's going to KNOW to say Jackson's eyes were open to further his claim. This is hardly a smoking gun!

73. Propofol works very quickly. Murray said he gave Michael 1/8 av the bottle. Then, much later when he was in the bathroom, he claims that Michael grabbed the bottle and EMPTIED it through the port in the IV attached to his ankle. So Michael managed to get all of the 7/8 of the content into his body in ONE minute before he collapsed and died? And then, for some reason, the empty bottle fell on the floor under the nightstand?

There are so many holes in this story.

No way you would be awake long enough to complete the injection.

But then, Murray's legal team denies that they will use this as his defense. See below:

"A representative for Dr. Conrad Murray’s legal team categorically
denies TMZ.com’s report over the weekend that the physician plans
to argue that Michael Jackson injected himself with a fatal dose of propofol. “That is in no way indicative of what we are going to be presenting in court,” Miranda Sevcik, a spokesperson for Murray and his attorney Edward Chernoff, tells EW."

lol it's just one thing after the other isn't it? These people are really getting desperate...I kind of feel pity for them.

Dr. Death and his media whore lawyer can come up with all the theories in the world, and trash michael all they want, but at the end of the day, it all comes down to the coroner's report.

STOP the BS TMZ. every story you post is such BS. and people on here comment like they believe this sh!t. half of these comments come from internal TMZ'ers...a bunch of high school drop outs. TMZ should kiss the ground MJ walked on, if it wasn't for him, their website would get no hits or attention. TMZ, we already know you have no 'sources' and this is all a lie, hello!

You're losers, TMZ...lies, lies, lies!
