Dr. Murray: Don't Show MJ Autopsy Pics in Court

4/7/2011 8:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Conrad Murray is begging the judge to ban Michael Jackson's autopsy photos from being shown in court during his manslaughter trial.

0407_mj_conrad_bn_getty

In a motion filed today in LA County Superior Court ... Murray's legal team argues the photos "will only unnecessarily and unfairly prejudice the jury against Dr. Murray."

They also claim the photos will not help the jury determine the cause of Michael's death.

On the juicier side ... Murray's attorneys also filed a motion to exclude testimony or evidence dealing with the doc's visits to strip clubs, the women he met there, and the amount of money he spent in those clubs.

They also want Murray's extramarital affairs left out of the proceedings.

Other than spending you entire life on TMZ, all you do is troll other websites looking for any bit of info to support your ridiculous analogies.


So he liked a little lipstick, so what? According to you I suppose men who opt to carry purses would also be considered feminine.


FYI, centuries ago both men and women wore eye makeup, lipstick and perfume. Cosmetics for men is now considered one of the fastest growing trends among straight men.

Can any of you hateful people ever just stop hating? Is that possible? Are you capable of feeling sadness for the death of someone? I guess that would mean you would have to have a heart to actually feel anything. I shouldn't matter that you did not like this person for whatever reasons you have; what matters is that a human being died at the hands of another person. Does not matter who the person is, it matters that we all should have compassion for someone who died. Not make fun of them, not post lies about them or just awful things in general.

I don't wish death on Conrad Murray. I don't like what he did and think he should pay for his negligence and recklessness, but unlike you hateful people; I do have compassion for his family. I cannot imagine what they are going through right now.

Life is all too short as well find out soon enough. Try living it for awhile instead of spreading your doom to others.

PRESUMED"???? PRESUMED NOTHING!!! THE MURDERER IS GUILTY AND THAT'S ENOUGH!!!! SO HE HAS NO RIGHT TO ASK ANYTHING HE IS A MURDERER WHO MUST ROT IN JAIL!!!! THE MURDERER!!!! PERIOD!!!!!

I agree with you about Dr Murray; but in the US a defendant is
"presumed innocent until proven guilty". I didnt say that, that's the law here. That's all I meant

I DO NOT CARE AT ALL. WHAT INTERESTS ME IS THAT MURDERER BE CONVICTED AND ROT IN JAIL AS HE ACTUALLY DOES DESERVE. AND HE IS GOING TO BE CONVICTED BECAUSE HE IS TOTALLY GUILTY.

Fresno has PLENTY of pretty, available women.    

CONrad murray is a murderer in a suit. He's a con and many incarcerated MJ supporters can't wait to shank his ass. One day, CONrad murray will have autopsy photos of his own. LOL. :-)

http://gayblackcanadianman.com/2009/07/01/why-are-the-media-ignoring-michael-jacksons-sexuality/ I think he was quite confused, and he had so many contradictions. It’s difficult to tell fact and fiction with him. I liked some glam rockers from the 1970s and despite the image of them – makeup and costumes – many of them were actually straight and groupie friends. They realised that dressing up and wearing makeup actually brought them more attention from teenage girls if anything.

Some say that he was just indifferent to sex, and that explained his relative inexperience. His lyrics and performances don’t give much of that impression to me!

Joe Jackson has been quoted making some fairly homophobic comments, Katherine too. If I remember correctly MJ was under their influence for quite some time, not leaving home until his mid to late twenties.

Some girls who are fans of his claim the basis of their attraction to him is his sensitive, fey, reserved and ‘gentlemanly’ nature in the area of sex (they seriously insist that he is an ‘angel’ trapped in an earthly skin!) But those are also features of gay men. It’s said that Liz Taylor formed many friendships with gay men because they appreciated her for more than her looks. Many of the very young fans seem to have a very idealized, detached from reality image of him, perhaps from not being there in the era when he was most active. They think in nearly fairy tale terms. In MJ I see a strange mixture of self-hatred and narcissism. I know that he had Vitiligo which caused the skin colour change. But he also further anglicised his features with plastic surgery and cosmetics, and was recorded talking about how he hated his hair, using the ‘n’ word. (I’m mixed heritage myself and my hair is more the texture of my black ancestors.)

In a fan book a makeup artist told how he would ask to look ‘pale and pretty’ for photo shoots. I don’t know what kind of bizarre idealized form of beauty he was searching for in his procedures, maybe some old Hollywood type of glamour. He may not have even been that conscious himself of what it was he was rejecting and accepting in his appearance, it was anything in the name of looking how he thought he should in front of a camera.

‘The Picture of Dorian Gray’ comes up as a comparison – the 19th century fictional story of a young man who sells his soul in exchange for eternal youth and beauty.

I was a fan in the early 1980s but by the end of the decade, physical changes aside, it seemed there was a noticeable difference in the personality of the man. At the time, it was difficult to totally explain. Now it seems the most likely reason is drug abuse. That, and also his sexual identity crisis, perhaps explains how he came to make such a mess of his life.

MJ comes across to me as a very traumatized individual, but I think unfortunately he allowed himself to be a victim of cir***stances too long. It’s the classic thinking of an addict. And I have had personal experience of both trauma and addiction. There are people who overcome enormous obstacles and emerge okay in adulthood, or even become better people as a result – they are motivated to help and to prevent suffering in others. MJ made steps in that direction, but it was the demons that ultimately won out, after he was beset by a series of nearly freakish events. Anyhow, I doubt we’ll see another like him, at least not for quite some time – nobody pushed themselves to the limits he did, but he paid the price. In many ways, I think it’s symbolic of the end of the silver screen era of larger than life superstars.

Not all that glitters is gold.

liz taylor had no concern about knowing feminine, babyish, troubled, victimhood lovers such as jackson.

That bastard! His reddhish devilish eyes alone reveil his evilness! Good lord; i so hope that the Court won't grant his request; they can't do something like that. Those photos are needed for evidence. Please, we want the truth!

Michael was not just the average person who isn't exposed to constant video shootings as soon as he quits the house for work or shop. He was a target of paparazzi and press photographers, he was person of show-entertainment, he had the star status, and besides he should have hid symptoms of vitiligo and emphasize his beauty. . He should have always looked photogenic instead of faded. He was the artist permanently flickering on screens. So, the cosmetics was necessary.
This is really stupid , in this case, to consider cosmetics as a sign of sexual minorities.

NO.The pictures have NOT been made public.
The autopsy will hurt Murray,period.The autopsy shows Michael to be in good health for a 50 year old man.The autopsy does not show Jackson to have suffered from any illnesses caused by drug abuse--proving Murray's defense tactics as wrong.

What is he so afraid of? The truth maybe? That the photos will confirm the coroner's report and he won't be able to lie anymore?
