Conrad Murray Trial Recap: Coroner’s Office Accused Of Making Mistakes Conrad Murray Trial Recap: Coroner’s Office Accused Of Making Mistakes

Splashnews/WENNBy Radar Staff

The Los Angeles County Coroner's investigator who examined Michael Jackson’s body and bedroom has been accused of making “mistakes”.

Elissa Fleak was questioned in Los Angeles Superior Court Thursday by lawyers acting for Dr. Conrad Murray – who is accused of the involuntary manslaughter of the singer in June 2009 – and was quizzed by defense attorney Ed Chernoff on some of her atypical practices.

After saying she always destroys her investigation notes, Elissa admitted she failed to dispose of her do***ents from a second trip to Michael’s house on June 29, four days after his death.

She said she kept the notes because it was unusual to require a second trip to an investigation scene, to which Chernoff asked: "Would you agree with me that you made a substantial number of mistakes in investigating this case?"

Fleak said: “No.”

The investigator also admitted she had picked up a bottle of Flumazenil from the floor of the Thriller hitmaker’s bedroom before taking photographs and said she apparently left a partial fingerprint on a syringe found in the room.

Noting she usually wears gloves, she said: "I found [out about the fingerprint] later.”

Explaining she thought the fingerprint may have transferred as tables were moved around the room, she added: "I don't remember if I was wearing gloves when the tables were moved.”

Chernoff asked her: "You don't consider any of that a mistake?” but she responded “no”.

Later in the day, Jurors were shown a picture of a child sized porcelain doll, which was dressed in green dungarees and had blonde curly hair lying next to a CD player in Jackson’s bedroom.

The court was also shown a police photograph of ornate dinner plates featuring babies’ faces – believed to be those of the star’s three children – displayed on a chest of drawers alongside family pictures.

Also shown to the court today was the official toxicology report of tests carried out on Michael’s body after his death from acute Propofol intoxication on June 25, 2009.

The do***ent showed the star had six legal substances in his system, Propofol (Diprivan), Lidocaine, Diazepam (Valium), Lorazepam (Ativan), Midazolam (Versed), and Ephedrine.

Giving evidence to the court, toxicologist Dan Anderson said that, out of all the substances found, Jackson had the least amount of Propofol actually in his stomach.

Anderson said he found only trace amounts of the drug – the equivalent of a few specks of sugar.

Murray denies administering the fatal dose of Propofol that killed his famous patient. If convicted, he faces up to four years in prison.

Defense grills investigator about search of Michael Jackson's bedroomBy Alan Duke, CNN

Coroner office subpoenaed medical recordsSTORY HIGHLIGHTS
NEW: Toxicologist testimony begins about drugs in Jackson's body
NEW: Dr. Conrad Murray's fingerprint identified on propofol vial prosecution says killed Jackson
Defense suggests coroner's investigator made "significant mistakes"
Judge warns prosecutor about showing Jackson children's medical data
Tune in to HLN for full coverage and analysis of the Conrad Murray trial and watch live, as it happens, on CNN.com/live and CNN's mobile apps.

Los Angeles (CNN) -- Dr. Conrad Murray's lawyer suggested Thursday that a coroner's investigator made "substantial mistakes" when she searched Michael Jackson's bedroom after the pop icon's death and that she has made significant changes in her testimony since the preliminary hearing last January.

The start of testimony Thursday, the eighth day of the involuntary manslaughter trial of Michael Jackson's doctor, was delayed when the judge raised concern that medical information about Jackson's children were displayed in court Wednesday when the prosecution showed their father's medical records.

"These are records that involve minor children of the decedent in this case, and I have very real concerns about their privacy," Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor said.

County Coroner's toxicologist Dan Anderson, who studied the drugs in Jackson's body, began his testimony Thursday morning as the prosecution introduces scientific evidence that is key to their effort to prove that Murray is criminally responsible for his death.

Defense questions coroner's methods

Coroner admits omissions

A slurring Jackson heard on recording The pathologist who conducted Jackson's autopsy and ruled his death a homicide could testify later Thursday or Friday, based on the order of witnesses followed by the prosecution in the preliminary hearing.

Jurors should also soon hear the two-hour interview Murray gave to police two days after Jackson's June 25, 2009, death of what the coroner concluded was the result of "acute propofol intoxication" in combination with sedatives.

On Wednesday, Deputy District Attorney David Walgren covered a table with drug vials and medical paraphernalia taken in Coroner's Investigator Elissa Fleak's searches, a visual display of Murray's in-home treatment of Jackson.

Fleak identified a saline bag that was cut open with an empty 100-milliliter propofol bottle inside. The prosecution alleges Murray used it as a makeshift IV drip to administer propofol to Jackson. The defense contends Murray gave Jackson just 25 milliliters of the surgical anesthetic and used a syringe to pu***** in.

Fleak, however, acknowledged under cross-examination Thursday that she never wrote in a report that the bottle was inside the bag until March of this year. She did, however, mention it at in her preliminary hearing in January

Murray's fingerprint was found on that 100-milliliter propofol bottle that prosecutors contend led to Jackson's death, according to a fingerprint analysis accepted by both the prosecution and defense Thursday.

At that January hearing, Fleak testified that she found a broken syringe plunger on the nightstand next to Jackson's bed, with a needle on the floor below.

But Fleak's trial testimony is that she was mistaken about the needle matching up to the syringe. She only realized this after a meeting this year with the prosecutor, she acknowledged when lead defense lawyer Ed Chernoff questioned her.

She also conceded that she moved the syringe before photographs of it were taken and that her fingerprint was later found on it.

"You made substantial mistakes in your investigation?" Chernoff asked.

"No," Fleak replied.

Coroner: No obvious cause of death

Jackson toxicology tests showed propofol

Toxicologist disapproves of questioning Fleak also revealed that she destroyed her handwritten notes from her June 25, 2009, search, but not the notes from the June 29, 2009, search. She said it is her routine practice to destroy her notes after she writes a report.

Twelve bottles of propofol were found in the bedroom during her first search the day Jackson died, including an empty vial found on the floor next to the bed, Fleak said.

Seven bottles of medications were on a nightstand next to the bed, including one with lorazepam pills prescribed by Murray to Jackson.

Murray's defense lawyers say Jackson caused his own death by swallowing eight lorazepam pills and orally ingesting propofol while Murray was out of the room.

Although crucial to prove that Murray is criminally responsible for the pop icon's death, Thursday's forensic testimony is not likely to match Wednesday's emotional drama when jurors heard Jackson's slurred voice telling his doctor, "I hurt, you know, I hurt."

A photograph of Jackson lying dead on a hospital gurney was later projected onto a large screen in the courtroom, a vivid reminder to jurors of why they will listen to a least a month of testimony.

While the court camera feed focused on the disturbing image for just five seconds -- the result of an earlier decision to minimize public exposure to such shocking images -- it was displayed on a large screen in front of the jury for about two minutes.

Forensic computer expert Stephen Marx, who found the Jackson audio file on Murray's iPhone, said it was recorded on May 10, 2009, when Jackson was preparing for his "This Is It" concerts set for London two months later.

Prosecutors, who played a clip of the audio in their opening statement last week, let the jury hear the entire recording at the trial Wednesday.

"Elvis didn't do it. Beatles didn't do it. We have to be phenomenal," Jackson said. "When people leave this show, when people leave my 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 Children's Hospital. Going to have a movie theater, game room."

In the portion never before heard in court, Jackson talked about his life and concern for children:

"Children are depressed. The -- in those hospitals, no game room, no movie theater. 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 going to do it, Conrad."

Another voice, which the prosecutor said was Murray's, is heard saying, "I know you would."

"Don't have enough hope, no more hope," Jackson said. "That's the next generation that's going to 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.' "

At the end, Jackson said he was "going to do that for them."

"That 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."

At the end, Jackson told the doctor, "I am asleep."

In court, his brother Jermaine Jackson wiped tears from his eyes as he listened.

Prosecutors argue that Murray, who was Jackson's personal doctor as he prepared for planned comeback concerts, is criminally responsible for the singer's death because of medical negligence and his reckless use of the propofol to help Jackson sleep.

If convicted of involuntary manslaughter, Murray could spend four years in a California prison and lose his medical license.

No fist fights here: A methodical approach to get spectators into Conrad Murray trial

A woman receives a ticket to gain access into the Conrad Murray trial in Los Angeles.

At the Conrad Murray manslaughter trial in downtown Los Angeles, there are no all-night lines, no fistfights, no Sharpie system like the one used by would-be spectators during Casey Anthony’s murder trial.

Trial-watching is a more orderly affair in L.A., which has a long history of sensational courtroom drama.

Spectators start showing up around 7 a.m., and it’s all over by 7:30. Unlike the Casey crowd, who were fighting over a hot ticket into the trial, these folks don’t brawl.


Why not? It’s not that Michael Jackson’s fans, who make up the vast majority of the would-be spectators, are peace-loving folks. They’re just as emotional about the case as the Casey clatchers were.

There’s just no point to acting out.


In Orlando, it was pretty much first come, first served for 50 courtroom seats, and conflict often arose over the varying definitions of “first.”

It got downright scary the night one woman showed up and started her own line, declaring herself No. 1. That did not go down well with the 50+ others who’d passed a Sharpie around to brand themselves with their numbers.

In Los Angeles, there are far fewer seats for the public, so you’d think the law of supply and demand would make the competition more intense. Ah, but L.A. has its lottery system. No matter when you show up, you’re given a ticket, and the other half is tossed in a bowl. The winning numbers are pulled out at random – so far six to nine a day.

If only they’d thought about that in Orlando, they might not have had to call the cops so many times.

“We’ve been doing this a while,” said one court spokeswoman, who offered a knowing smile and nod, but not her name.

First point is this - if MJ didn't kill himself during the 2005 trial, he wouldn't do it now. To know Michael is to know he has always said he would never kill himself, period, no matter what, NO WAY. That is like saying Jesus hung himself up on the cross. Second point is this - TMZ reports are either purposely deceiving the readers/viewers or are not getting the story straight, the demerol that was said to be the reason for the bad reaction is 0% NONE in his system anywhere OK and why not mention the real smoking gun that was told today about flumazinol that was found, an antidote for a specific drug overdose, obviously murray's story is entirely dishonest, alot like tmz's stories are in this case. go back to peoples court harvey at least you looked smart there, outside the court room. No one cares about your twisted opinion, you should know the rewards of bearing false witness! When you die nobody is going care the next week, whether you are murdered or kill your own self. You help noone, you only hurt people and cause them grief. It would be different you were an honest prick, but you're a lying prick. No respect!

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.

Michael Jackson Slurring His Words Recording Played At Trial: ‘I Didn’t Have A Childhood’

"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.

PHOTOS: Key Players In The Trial Of Dr. Conrad Murray

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?

Mr. Cassidy clearly has been doing interviews for a long long time and had his own agenda when talking with you! HA! It isn't everyday you guys at TMZ can't get a word in edge-wize.
But really, why isn't he suing for the 7.5% of Everything PF that his contract seems to indicate he's owed on top of the 15% of merch? Could it be he plans a second lawsuit? What do you think Harvey?

Tune in to HLN for full coverage and analysis of the Conrad Murray trial and watch live, as it happens, on CNN.com/live and CNN's mobile apps.

Los Angeles (CNN) -- Michael Jackson begged for his "milk," his nickname for propofol, after a sleepless night and just hours before he died from what the coroner said was an overdose of the surgical anesthetic, the singer's doctor Conrad Murray told detectives.

"I've got to sleep, Dr. Conrad," Murray said Jackson pleaded to him. "I have these rehearsals to perform. I must be ready for the show in England. Tomorrow, I will have to cancel my performance, because you know I cannot function if I don't get to sleep."

Jurors in Murray's involuntary manslaughter trial heard about half of the two-hour police interview on Friday, before going home for a three-day weekend.

Los Angeles Police Det. Scott Smith, one of two investigators who questioned Murray, is heard telling Murray at the start that he would make the interview "as painless and as quick as possible."

The audio recording, however, was too much for Michael Jackson's oldest sister, Rebbie. After she whispered to a bailiff, she walked into the jury box, next to the alternate jurors, and through the middle of the courtroom to the exit.

Police interview with Murray played

Murray: Jackson asked for 'milk'

Murray on CPR efforts, antidotes, death Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor stopped the audio playback and appeared angry at the disruption. "I can't have people walking through the courtroom!" Pastor said.

Murray is not expected to testify during the trial, but the interview playback means that jurors will have heard his story -- at least as he told it two days after Jackson's death.

"This is divine guidance," Murray said Jackson told him when he asked him to work as his personal doctor.

"He wanted me to be around forever. And he wanted to open a children's hospital where children all over the world can get treatment, and he wanted me to be the medical director," Murray told the detectives about his relationship with the pop star. Earlier this week, jurors heard a recording in which Jackson -- using slow and slurred speech -- talked to Murray about his dream of having a children's hospital.

The prosecution is playing the interview between Murray and the detective to help prove their case that the doctor should be held criminally responsible for reckless medical treatment that they say significantly contributed to Jackson's death.

Still, it does benefit the defense in some ways. The jury hears Murray's reasons for not immediately calling 911 for help, his explanation of his much-criticized CPR techniques, and the story that he was trying to wean Jackson off of a dependency on propofol. At the same time, the defendant is not subjected to a cross-examination by prosecutors.

Murray said that when he agreed to be Jackson's personal physician for his "This Is It" shows in London, he had no idea he would have to give him regular infusions of propofol.

But it was a drug Jackson told him he had used for years to get elusive sleep, he said.

"I was a bit surprised of his pharmacological knowledge," Murray told police. "He explained that he used it frequently on his tours."

During his two months on the job, he gave Jackson propofol "30 days a month, every day, with the exception of three days leading up to his death," Murray said.

"Michael Jackson may have a had a dependency to the substance," Murray said. "I was trying to wean him off."

The morning of the day Jackson died was after a third night of trying to wean Jackson from the drug, he said.

Murray described a long, restless night and morning for the pop icon, that began with the use of a series of sedatives -- lorazepam and midazolam -- without effect, Murray said.

Jackson found brief sleep early that day using meditation, but at 10 a.m. -- after eight hours of frustrated efforts -- Jackson begged for propofol, Murray said.

"He said, 'I'd like to have some milk, please, please give me some."

By 10:40 a.m., Murray said he gave in.

"So, I agreed at that time that I would switch over to the propofol, and I would give small amounts that would help him to sleep," Murray told detectives.

"I loved Mr. Jackson," the doctor added. "He was my friend, and he opened up to me, and I wanted to help him as much as I can."

On the recording, Murray insisted he kept a close watch on Jackson after he finally fell asleep. The physician never mentioned the long list of e-mails and calls that cell phone records later revealed.

The doctor said he left the room for about two minutes to visit the toilet. When he returned, he realized his patient had stopped breathing, Murray said.

"Immediately, I felt for a pulse and I was able to get a pulse in the femoral region," he said. "His body was warm. There was no change in color, so I assumed that everything happened quickly."

Murray told police he immediately started one-handed CPR on the bed alternately with mouth-to-mouth resuscitation on Jackson.

"I couldn't lift him off the bed by myself," Murray said. "What I did was to improvise. His bed is fairly firm, so I got my left hand under his body and I compressed with my hand not moving in place."

Jackson security chief Alberto Alvarez, the first person to join Murray in the effort, testified that he questioned Murray's knowledge of CPR techniques because he was trained to put a patient on a hard surface and use two hands.

Murray said he did not call 911 for help immediately because he expected answering the emergency operator's questions would take too much time away from the resuscitation efforts.

Instead, he ran down the stairs and shouted for the chef to summon help, and he placed a call to Jackson's personal assistant, Michael Amir Williams, to ask that he send a security guard upstairs, Murray said.

Murray said he tried his best to revive Jackson.

The second half of Murray's interview will be played in court Tuesday morning, when jurors return after the Columbus Day holiday.

Defense confronts Coroner about testimony

CSI evidence in Jackson death trial

Defense questions coroner's methods Earlier Friday, Murray's lawyers questioned the coroner's toxicologist in their effort to convince jurors that the sedative lorazepam, not the surgical anesthetic propofol, was the drug most responsible for Michael Jackson's death.

Toxicologist Dan Anderson testified Friday morning that while all blood and urine samples collected in Jackson's autopsy were tested for propofol, the coroner's office did not test all of them for lorazepam levels.

"I think it has its importance but it was not the red flag that caught my eye," Anderson said Friday. "Propofol in any case that we handle is important, probably more important than any other drugs that we deal with."

The Los Angeles County coroner concluded Jackson's June 25, 2009, death was caused by "acute propofol intoxication" in combination with sedatives, including lorazepam.

Lawyers for Murray contend Jackson swallowed eight lorazepam pills and self-administered a dosage of propofol while Murray was no*****ching. The result, they contend, was near instant death for the pop icon.

Prosecutors contend the high level of propofol found in Jackson's blood was the result of Murray's reckless use of a makeshift IV system with no monitoring equipment to put Jackson to sleep with the drug.

Jurors Thursday and Friday heard about the drugs found in Jackson's blood. The scientific evidence, presented by a coroner's toxicologist, is tedious and often hard to follow, but is the cornerstone of the prosecution's case.

Jurors who will decide if Murray is criminally responsible for Jackson's fatal overdose appeared to pay close attention as they took notes while Anderson detailed the lab results from Jackson's autopsy Thursday. Anderson returned to the witness stand the next morning for more defense cross-examination.

A higher level of lorazepam was measured in Jackson's stomach contents than in the blood from his heart and leg, defense lawyer Michael Flanagan noted as he questioned Anderson.

"The concentration is about four times as concentrated in the stomach as it is in the blood. You think that's an important number?" Flanagan asked.

"Not really," Anderson said. "It doesn't necessarily mean it's oral administration."

Along with propofol, Lidocaine and lorazepam, tests of blood taken from Jackson's heart and leg also tested positive for Midazolam and Diazepam, drugs commonly used to alleviate anxiety or induce sleep.

Jackson did not have Demerol in his blood, which is significant because of the defense contention that Dr. Arnold Klein addicted Jackson to the painkiller in frequent visits to his Beverly Hills dermatology clinic in the weeks before his death, without Murray knowing.

Defense lawyer Ed Chernoff said in his opening statement that Jackson was unable to sleep because he was going through withdrawal from Demerol since he had not visited Klein for several days.

Murray's fingerprint was found on the 100-milliliter propofol bottle that coroner's investigator Elissa Fleak testified Thursday she found inside a saline bag that had been sliced open. The prosecutor contends it was that bottle that contained the drug that killed Jackson.

Prosecutors argue that Murray, who was Jackson's personal doctor as he prepared for planned comeback concerts, is criminally responsible for the singer's death because of medical negligence and his reckless use of the propofol to help Jackson sleep.

If convicted of involuntary manslaughter, Murray could spend four years in a California prison and lose his medical license.
