Conrad Murray: Michael Broke the Syringe!

3/16/2011 3:32 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A huge development in the Dr. Conrad Murray trial involving the death of Michael Jackson ... the defense wants a first generation fingerprint of a broken syringe found in MJ's bedroom the day he died ... and our sources say they think it could prove that Michael killed himself.

Dr. Murray's lawyers were in court this AM.  Among other things, they lasered in on a broken syringe that had rolled under Michael's deathbed.  The defense wants a first generation fingerprint to determine who was handling it.

Defense sources tell us ... Dr. Murray insists he did not break the syringe.  As TMZ first reported ... the defense believes MJ caused his own death by giving himself a massive overdose of Propofol while Murray was out of the room.

Defense sources say ... there were only two people in the room, and since Murray did not break the syringe, Michael must have handled it.

The defense is asking that the FBI deliver the first generation fingerprint.

TMZ needs to update more about the Jackson mess.

I don't think there was any conspiracy to his death, and if he didn't commit suicide he asked for enough drugs to kill himself, consciously or subconsciously. No matter how you cut it though, Conrad was negligent and should never be allowed to be a doctor

The family is still pissed Michael rehired a lot of people he could trust and got rid of Jermaines best friend, and mofia man, Thome Thome, before he died. FBI need to look at why Thome was next to Jermaine within hours of MJs death and hanging out with him that day.

The will is real and now we have stupid Joe saying he has names and wants the FBI to investigate. If anyone, along with Murray, killed MJ it was Jermaine and Thome.

Here's the thing - according to those interviewed about MJ's past drug use, the FBI is already investigating and watching them, because those who spoke the truth are getting death threats. The FBI is already involved so if there were names to reveal, Joe would have revealled them already. He's just trying to get fans to suspect Sony and not buy MJs records, because only the kids not Joe benefit from those sales. Just like Latoya saying it wasn't MJ on the records. Sorry, but Michael himself said he recorded hundreds of songs.

He may have hated Sony when they wouldn't help him promote Invinsible, and rightly so, but they saved his but financially later on.

He also says he never slapped his kids, his wife did it - LOL
I say he's beating Katherine to give him part of her massive allowance so he can keep investing in things. And like Mann he wants to make money off of Michael, without the estate's permission and without giving any to the estate that belongs to Michaels kids.

The siblings all knew MJ only gave money to their MOm so they dumped their ex wives and kids on the Mom. Sad how Michaels Death reveals what a horrible and cruel family he had. Wonder if idiot Jermaine knows he has to give part of the proceeds of his tell all book to the estate since he's making money off of Michael. Wonder too if YET AGAIN the poor kids personal lives and conversations will be put in the book, just like the family keeps talking about them in interviews.

The family are even saying Blanket isn't Michaels, they don't want the kids to have any money or fame. Rebbie isn't as innocent as she was always made out to be either. The Oprah interview revealled that her bi-polar kid was also living with Grandma, and now that she had to take the kid home with her, she writting a tell all book about her own kids mental problems.

Nice family - NOT

A broken syringe?
Doesn't really ring true to be done by
Michael Jackson OR the Doctor.
Maybe someone was in a hurry.
Really odd.

If Jackson's fingerprint(s)is found on the syringe, then the FBI also needs to tell us whether someone could have taken a groggy, unconscious, or dead Jackson's finger and pressed the print on there to make it look as if Jackson willfully handled it.

And who "breaks" a syringe when injecting himself? You'd have to use an awful lot of force, and wouldn't that be painful? And also show a big bruise at the injection site? Perhaps a groggy Michael tried to fight off Dr. Conrat Murder as the doctor tried to place Michael's hand on the syringe...

I do not believe that Michael Jackson has injected in, himself,
some thing to die, to commit suicide. I do not believe in DEATH
OF MICHAEL JACKSON. This history is full of contradictions.
Dr Murray cannot say the TRUTH ( MJ IS ALIVE ), then it if defends, say this ( MJ to commit suicide ). Dr Murray have not the exit ( Oh my God !!!!! )
Everything this seems a CIRCUS.
I do not believe that Dr Murray goes to be the convict, for to kill of Michael Jackson.

To all of those posting about MJ needing drugs to get over his scalp burns from the 80's.... Here is the info that you are missing. The pain related to the pepsi accident was not actually caused by the burns.. Those healed years ago. It was for treatments to heal the scalp in attempt to regrow hair and healthy tissue. Grafting, balloons, injections and other scar tissue revisions. These are all very painful procedures and processes and he underwent them for years trying to grow his hair back. The scalp is very sensitive and when injured tends to swell with blood and become very painful. Hence the continuing pain & drama from the Pepsi ad.....

Desperate Acts - Pt. 2.......
Okay, so I KNEW this dumb story would bring out all of the IDIOTS who ASSume Michael was a drug addict, and some even have the NERVE to infer that there is DO***ENTED PROOF!
I will repeat this as long as I have to: THERE IS NO PROOF other than '93 when he admitted to an addiction to Pain Meds. He went to Rehab and got clean. Of course he had PRESCRIBED meds for Lupus, Vitiligo, and Anxiety, but if you open any random Medicine cabinet out there, I'm sure it will be FILLED with meds. And for the record, the meds found at Holmby were all being used appropriately--actually he had skipped usage on some. If he was such an addict, why would he allow drugs to lay around unused?
It just kills he how HYPOCRITICAL people in this country are. Just looking at most of the posts, many are willing to JUDGE Michael as an addict, when most of them have cabinets FULL of Medicine, bars that are more stocked up than a Package store, and will freely admit to smoking weed on a REGULAR basis.....PHYSICIAN HEAL THYSELF.......
-#5: puhp, er...WHAT drugs are you on , again? Are you sure that it isn't YOU that's been a JUNKIE for years? Because if you're trying to accuse Michael, there is NO PROOF to back up that claim other than the addiction he had to pain meds back in '93--other than that, it's all HEARSAY! Congrats for being one of the many DUPED AMERICANS who believe that crap....must feel great to know that you can count on your local and National MEDIA-god for ALL of the TRUTH you can CHOKE on.....
And did you have the NERVE to say he didn't do anything in his 30th Anniversary concert? You DO realize there were TWO shows where he did an ENTIRE set of J5 numbers, then turned around and did an ENTIRE set of his SOLO work--all WITHOUT missing a beat....
ANd the Billie Jean Performance on that show was the BEST one yet! I think you are either BLIND, or you mistook Michael for Usher or one of the NSYNC boys....you DO know what Michael looks like, don't you......no Oye, just EEK!!
BTW: TII was supposed to be a REHEARSAL--meaning, he had NO REASON to perform fully although he did on a few of the performances. So YES they DID craft the movie to make him look good the same way they did the "Michael"CD--they did it because Michael was not there to perfect it, so it was in all fairness to him.....
But even though it was only a rehearsals, TII was 10 times better than any full out concert most artists of today would put on. They made almost $300Mil on that movie, and that's WITHOUT full Fan support....many were either too broken up, or did NOT want to support AEG/Sony by seeing the movie....let's see them do a concert rehearsal movie for ANYONE--including ELVIS, The BEATLES, and you can BET it won't come even CLOSE to making that kind of money....
-#16: Tammy, say WHAT? Murray WAS in the room long enough to give Michael the BENZOS and PROPOFOL that he ADMITTED to giving him in his LAPD affidavit....DO YOUR RESEARCH....
And FYI, there is NO PROOF yet that Murray wasn't in the room...we only have HIS word to go on.....in other words, we have NOTHING to go on......
-#20: Myra, they did dust the syringe for fingerprints, but said they could only get "3rd generation prints"--translation: the prints are probably too murky to identify....
And I agree with your thoughts about how long the defense took to push for the prints. Thing is, they're grasping at straws, playing that old game where you "run something up a flagpole and see who salutes it"....Oye.
-#21: Mighty Mad, I see your point, but remember this: it's the defense's job to confuse and blow smoke over this case so that you forget the only points worth noting:
-Murray was hired by AEG to be Michael's doctor
-Murray claimed to be "Weaning" Michael off of Propofol for 6 weeks due to his Insomnia. There are RECEIPTS to PROVE that Murray purchased the Propofol, but NO PROOF that he was giving it to Michael for 6 wks....NOT!
-On June 25, Murray admitted to giving Michael a STACK of BENZOS and PROPOFOL. He had NONE of the Proper MEDICAL EQUIPMENT REQUIRED TO administer Anaesthetics....
-After Murray discovered he wasn't breathing, he took almost ONE HOUR before he called 911 according to his deposition and phone records. He more likely took even longer since several of the phone calls appear to be contrived as a time stamp, and he used QUESTIONABLE Girlfriends to back up his story....enough said.
-Roberto Alvarez testified that Murray delayed calling 911, and told him to clean up Propofol bottles and stash them in a bag, then hide it in the closet.....that begs the question:
HOW DID THIS BROKEN SYRINGE GET "OVERLOOKED" when Murray AND Alvarez were working so hard to clean up the scene? Can you say PLANTED?!!!
-Once Michael was moved to UCLA, Murray spoke to a few people, then disappeared for TWO DAYS, returning at that time with a LAWYER and PR FIRM....
The Defense can blow as much SMOKE AND MIRRORS as they want, but they can't erase ANY OF THE ABOVE FACTS......and NO, digging up a bunch of TABLOID HEARSAY to throw the focus on Michael won't work either.....
-#23: kathy, I don't know about Liz, but Lisa Marie DEFINITELY used Michael....she wanted a Music career and figured he would be the best one to help her. From what I understand, he had planned to help, but that's when she began to show her true colors by refusing to honor her commitment to have children for him, and taking off on trips with her kids and ex.....
Yep, she used him alright....still does. When have you heard ANYTHING about LisaMarie when it wasn't based on her life with Michael?
-#27: if sense were common, you say Murray is "PARTLY CULPABLE?" Based on WHAT? Common sense should've told you to google Calif. Penal code. If you had, you'd know that Murray took risk that he KNEW could endanger his patient's life. That is actually MURDER 2, but the DA only pushed for Manslaughter because the LAPD didn't secure the crime scene right away, and because they're track record is CRAP!!
BTW: Michael did NOT self-inject--there is NO PROOF of this other than a bunch of CIR***STANTIAL BS the defense is ATTEMPTING to cram down our throats....Oye x 2.
