Dr. Murray Wants Michael Jackson Fluid Samples

We're told Dr. Murray's lawyers want to re-test some of the fluids to determine the accuracy level of the Propofol found in Michael Jackson's body.

According to the L.A. County Coroner's report Jackson died of acute Propofol intoxication.

We've learned the Coroner has fluid samples and we're told they've been preserved.

Also today in court ... Judge Michael Pastor is expected to set a preliminary hearing date.  The spokesperson for Dr. Murray's lawyer, Ed Chernoff, has said whatever date the judge wants is fine with them ... "If he wants it next week, we'll be there next week."

He waited a couple of hours after Jackson OD'ed, fled fromt he scene abandoning his car, refused to talk to policew until two days later when he got a lawyer, and did nothing but try to cover up his end while claiming Jackson, a guy who never went to medical school, was injecting himself with a heavy anesthetic used for surgery.

Yeah he's innocent. Sure.

Plus he changed his story (timeline) eight months after Michael´s death. His lawyer said that he suddenly remembered differently.

Yeah.....right....

How do any of you know for sure Murray is guilty?

We don't. Although the cir***stantial evidence that has leaked so far looks very bad for him (of course, the cir***stantial evidence that leaked before Michael's trial looked very bad for him as well). The coronor's report said MJ died from acute propofol intoxication, so from that we know that SOMEONE overdosed him on propofol that morning. There seem to be only two choices -- either Dr. Murray did it or Michael did it to himself (which many experts purport is a physical impossibility). There was no one else there unless you believe that one of the bodyguards or the cook or one of the children did it. Or maybe the ghost of Elvis. We won't know if Murray is guilty or not until the evidence is presented at trial. And from the looks of things, that won't be until well into next year.

I thought the propofol was short lived ? If so, they will not get the the reading that the corner got. Is this how Murry's team is going to create reasonable doubt ?

BECAUSE Murray already admitted it and said he GAVE HIM the propofol, Mike died of Propofol Intoxication. 2 + 2 STILL equals 4, no?

Murray admitted that he gave MJ propofol, but he has denied that he gave him an amount that would have killed him.

There's NO way in H@LL Mike could have woken up and given himself propofol

They will have to prove that in court.
