People vs. Dr. Conrad Murray

Michael Jackson Had "Episode"

Days Before Death

Computer Forensic Examiner -- Stephen Marx Testifies

Dramatic testimony today ... suggesting there were strong signs Michael Jackson's health was deteriorating days before his death.

Stephen Marx -- the forensic expert who analyzed Dr. Conrad Murray's iPhone -- uncovered a voicemail message in which Michael Jackson's manager referred to "an episode" MJ had five days before he died.

Prosecutors played the June 20th message during Marx's testimony -- in which Michael's manager Frank DiLeo says, "I'm sure you're aware [Michael] had an episode last night."

Frank clearly believed Michael had a drug problem, claiming, "He's sick. I think you need to get a blood test on him. We gotta see what he's doing."

You'll recall ... Kenny Ortega and others talked about MIchael's heath problems during rehearsal on June 19, 2009, which triggered a confrontation between Ortega and Murray at MJ's house the next day.

Dr. Conrad Murray told detectives from the Los Angeles Police Robbery Homicide Division during his interview about his love for Michael Jackson, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

Dr. Murray and his lawyer, Ed Chernoff met with cops two days after Michael Jackson tragically died in June, 2009. The meeting was audiotaped, and it's expected that Deputy District Attorney David Walgren will play that interview for the jury Friday in the involuntary manslaughter trial.

"Dr. Murray told cops that he loved Michael Jackson, and that he was trying to ween him off Propofol. Dr. Murray considered Michael Jackson a very close friend, and he was devastated that Michael Jackson was dead. He got extremely emotional that Michael had died. Dr. Murray said repeatedly how much he loved Michael Jackson," a source close to the case told RadarOnline.com.

The interview lasted "about two hours. Dr. Murray admits to giving Michael Jackson Propofol and several other drugs, including sedatives," the insider tells us.

Deputy District Attorney David Walgren played the audiotaped interview that Dr. Conrad Murray did with the LAPD just two days after Michael Jackson died, in court Friday, and the interview had the jurors’ full attention, RadarOnline.com is reporting.

It was a brilliant and strategic move by Walgren because Monday is a court holiday, and jurors will certainly have plenty of time to think about Murray admitting to cops that he gave Michael Jackson Propofol.

In Murray’s interview, he told cops Jackson asked him for “some milk,” his codeword for Propofol, and he admitted that he administered it to the King of Pop.

Dr. Murray: [Michael Jackson] said, "I'd like some milk,"
Detective Martinez: Milk?
Detective Smith: About what time was this?
Dr. Murray: This he said, "please, please give me some milk so that I can sleep, because I know that this is all that really works for me"
Detective Smith: Hot milk or warm or just--
Dr. Murray: It's just some medicine--
Detective Smith: What--
Dr. Murray: --that he was familiar with
Detective Martinez: What is the medicine?
Dr. Murray: It's called Propofol

Dr. Murray also told the cops he only left Jackson's bedside for two-three minutes to go to the bathroom after 10:40 a.m., but cell phone records indicate that the doctor was on the phone with a number of his girlfriends in the minutes leading up to Michael Jackson's death.

Murray went on to explain how he broke the news of Jackson’s death to the singer’s mother, Katherine Jackson, upon her arrival at the UCLA Ronald Reagan Medical Center.

Dr. Murray: So we -- they brought her into a room down the hall. And I went in there with the emergency room physician who was treating him, whom I was with all the time through his code, and they broke the news to Mrs. Jackson. So the doctor started to tell that, you know her son came in and he was having difficulty breathing and they tried everything. And she said, "well how is he? He's not dead is he?" and the doctor said "yes," and she broke down. It was very -- and weeping. We stayed there, held her hand."

Dr. Murray then talked about how he went to another room where Jackson's three children were, and told them their father had died.

Dr. Murray: They asked questions, and the children found out that daddy wasn't doing well, that he had passed away. And then they were weeping, really weeping...after they cried and cried and then his daughter uttered a lot of words of unhappiness, and you know she will live alone without her dad and she didn't want to be an orphan...She cried and was very stark. And then she asked to see him. And then that was another thing. How do you let children see him? I asked them to prepare Mr. Jackson's body, make it as presentable as possible, because I recommended an autopsy be performed, so that the children would be able to view their daddy and have them say good-bye to him at this time."

Court will be in recess until next Tuesday.

We are fans across the world, who are demanding justice for the murder of Michael Jackson. We are fans across the world who feel that Conrad Murray is responsible for taking the life of another, with a careless disregard for human life. Throughout the years we are fans who have watched the system victimize, vilify and crucify an innocent man whose sole purpose was to change the world and make it a better place. We are fans who are demanding that Michael Jackson be treated with the same rights afforded to every other human being.

We are fans that together are uniting as one and telling the system that the unfair treatment of Michael Jackson needs to stop and the truth needs to finally be told. We are fans that are grieving the loss of a man who the likes the world has rarely seen. It is time to set the record straight and tell the world who Michael Jackson really was, not who they made him out to be. Michael Jackson was the victim of opportunists who all wanted their piece of a man who never did a thing but give his heart, his money and his musical genius to the world.

We are fans that are demanding that the media STOP the lies they have told the world and start reporting the truth. You took his dignity in your campaign for ratings. You told the world he molested children, when there was no evidence and he was found not guilty. You told the world he was ashamed of his race and was bleaching his skin to become white. You chased him from his own country with your barrage of lies. We the fans are now the voice of the man who you destroyed in the eyes of the public and are now allowing that same system to make a mockery of his murder. Michael is gone, his children are fatherless and the world has lost an amazing human and humanitarian.

For those of you with blood on your hands, his fans are standing up, telling the truth and setting the record straight. You may have destroyed the life and contributed to the death of the greatest entertainer that ever lived, but we will not let you have his legacy. Justice and truth for Michael Joseph Jackson. Your dreams were broken; your life was taken. But united we will stand. We had to let you go, but we will not forget you. We will not turn our backs and walk away.

We love and miss you everyday. We will not let them do to your children what they did to you... the pain is over, they can't hurt you anymore...you are free and now you can fly. Goodbye and thank you, RIP Michael.

Conrad Murray trial week 2. MICHAEL JACKSON’S LAST MESSAGE TO US
October 3, 2011
tags: Dr. Richelle Cooper, Dr. Thao Nguyen, Elissa Fleak, Hamid Towfigh, Martin Blount, Michael Jackson's tapeby vindicatemj
.Here is Michael Jackson’s dying message to the world
The fact that the message was taken on May 10, 2009 when Conrad Murray was routinely giving him propofol or something else to sleep – and was recording him at that – does not change anything.

Michael was falling asleep and that is why his voice sounds like he is passing away from us.

At moments like that people are unable to lie. They tell the truth only and speak of things which are most essential to them.

And in his dying hour Michael Jackson was speaking of the pain he was feeling for the world – for you, me, all of us – and our children who should be able to change it all.

His last thoughts were not about making millions, they were about giving them away for the biggest in the world hospital for children – which would have a game room and a movie theatre so that children don’t feel sick and depressed there.

He knew that joy for the children is their best remedy.

Before stepping into eternity he was still thinking of children’s well-being as his biggest dream. He understood them so well.

He was pure as a child. And he was talking about God.

I AM GONNA DO THAT FOR THEM!
Though I am asleep…

* * * * *

Half a day has passed since the ****tering tape was played in the courtroom and its full text was uncovered to the world, but it is still not receiving even a fraction of the attention it deserves.

The media quotes only tiny pieces of the text accompanied by a heavily slanted comment or prefers to silence it altogether. No more gleeful CNN repetition of the tape every 5 minutes, no more Piers Morgan savoring his primitive and distasteful story four times a day, no more happy pundits popping up on the screen every half an hour to dirty Michael – no, everything is extremely modest, cold and meaning to imply that “it is is no longer the news”.

What is news to them is Steve Jobs’s death which serves as a pretext for forgetting about Michael Jackson’s tape. But this way they are showing us that their desire to bury Michael is so big that they are even ready to give up the golden opportunity of reporting an absolutely smashing link between these two pieces of news – I mean the iphone which was invented by Steve Jobs and the fact that it was exactly an iphone which allowed to extract Michael’s priceless recording and Murray’s correspondence with insurers and AEG on the day of Michael’s death.

The recording was retrieved at the end of July as a complete miracle – it was almost three months after the event (as it was recorded on May 10 but analyzed at the end of July) and restoring its data became possible only due to iphone’s unique possibilities of a small computer. One would think that Michael’s recording would be a perfect way to show Steve Jobs’s legacy at its best, but the media thinks different – they totally ignore this point though it is the most logical thing to speak of under the cir****tances!

When Jane Velez-Mitchell couldn’t resist expressing her natural emotion upon hearing Michael’s tape and saying what she really thought about it ( that “maybe MJ fans were right all along and this man could never hurt a child and he was never a p-le”), she was immediately restrained by Stacy Brown who tweeted her that “she didn’t do their profession a service” – which literally means that telling the truth about Michael Jackson is doing a disservice to the media.

In other words they are now openly telling us that the only right thing for the media to do about Michael Jackson is to cover him with dirt, while everything else will be a “disservice” to their profession. This is no news to Michael’s supporters and it is only the openness with which it is being revealed now to the general public which is so surprising.

At least no one will be able to say now that the media has no agenda against Michael – the agenda has become so obvious that it is simply impossible not to notice it.

Michael’s tape is the biggest possible news ever. He is talking to us from behind the grave and is expressing his innermost thoughts which are revealed to us at a moment when people cannot lie in principle. The media twists and cuts it, misinterprets and gives all sorts of crazy explanations to it, speculates or squeezes out only drops of information from it – in short they are doing everything which is in their power, except the simplest and easiest thing to do which is providing the full text of it.

The reason for that is because Michael’s tape is so eye-opening an experience that it is capable to ****ter within seconds the wall of lies mounted around Michael Jackson by generations of the tabloid media.

Here is the full text of it:

MJ: Elvis didn’t do it. Beatles didn’t do it. We have to be phenomenal. When people leave the show, when people leave the show, I want them to say, “I’ve never seen nothing like this in my life. Go. Go. I’ve never seen nothing like this. Go. It’s amazing. He’s the greatest entertainer in the world”. I’m taking that money, a million children, children’s hospital, the biggest in the world, Michael Jackson’s Children’s Hospital. Gonna have a movie theatre, game room. Children are depressed. The – in those hospital, no game room, no movie theatre. They’re sick because they’re depressed. Their mind is depressing them. I want to give them that. I care about them, them angels. God wants me to do it. God wants me to do it. I’m gonna do it, Conrad.

CM: I know you would.

MJ: Don’t have enough hope, no more hope. That’s the next generation that’s gonna save our planet, starting with – we’ll talk about it. United States, Europe, Prague, my babies. They walk around with no mother. They drop them off, they leave – a psychological degradation of that. They reach out to me – please take me with you.

CM: Mmnh-mmnh.

MJ: I want to do that for them.

CM: Mmnh-Mmnh.

MJ: I’m gonna do that for them. They will be remembered more than my performances. My performances will be up there helping my children and always be my dream. I love them. I love them because I didn’t have a childhood. I had no childhood. I feel their pain. I feel their hurt. I can deal with it. Heal the World, We are the World, Will You Be There, The Lost Children. These are the songs I’ve written because I hurt, you know, I hurt.

(13 seconds: silence)

CM: You okay?

(8 seconds: silence)

MJ: I am asleep.

Despite the fact that Michael’s message came to us in fragments it is still so deep and powerful that I don’t even venture to give my interpretation of it as any comment will fall short of the original.

All I can say is that those who were still in doubt as to his innocence can now safely come down on his side of the fence as under a deep sedation like that it is impossible to pretend or lie. Michael’s words were coming from the very deep of his subconscious mind and therefore expressed the very essence of his soul.

And Michael was talking about the world in general and not of his children only – he was talking about millions of children who will probably be able to save us from the state of total degradation we currently find ourselves in.

The world terribly let Michael down and he had no more hope in it, except the children and the next generation of people. He placed his last hopes in the hands of a doctor whom he evidently trusted as he shared his thoughts with him in the final moments of his conscious life. And this is what this doctor did to him.

Are we indeed hopeless?
