Dr. Conrad Murray

Explosive Interview with Police

The Blow-by-Blow

10/7/2011 2:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1007_conrad_murray_reg_2
“I have to sleep, Dr. Conrad, I have these rehearsals to perform.” That’s what Dr. Conrad Murray told investigators Michael Jackson said to him in the early morning hours of June 25th, 2009. Hours later, Jackson was dead.
 
In what's been the most anticipated evidence in the trial, the prosecution played the jury Dr. Murray's 2-hour interview with LAPD detectives, recorded 2 days after MJ died.
 
Murray told detectives he arrived at Jackson’s rented mansion at 12:50 AM on June 25, and headed straight to Michael’s room to wait for him to come home after rehearsals.  According to Murray, Jackson arrived at 1:05 am saying he was tired and fatigued.  Murray rubbed a cream on Michael’s body to treat his Vitiligo ... then gave Michael a 10 mg Valium pill.  Michael couldn’t sleep, so Murray says he then gave him 2 mg of the anti-anxiety drug, Lorazepam.

Jackson complained he still couldn’t fall asleep, so Murray gave him 2 mg of the sedative Midazolam around 2am.   MJ remained awake.  Dr. Murray said he suggested turning down the music in the room ... and meditation.   Murray said Michael “reluctantly" closed his eyes, finally dozing off around 3:15 am, only to reawaken at 4:00 am.
 
At 4:30 am Murray said Michael said, “I have to sleep, Dr. Conrad, I have to sleep."   Murray gave MJ another 2 mg of Lorazepam.   Again, according to Dr. Murray, Michael couldn’t sleep.  Jackson was still wide awake at 7:30 am, so Dr. Murray administered another 2 mg of Midazolam, yet Michael remained awake and complaining that he was going to have to cancel the “This is It” tour.
 
Murray said Michael began to beg for his “milk,” the slang for Propofol.   Murray agreed to give him 25 mg of the powerful sedative around 10:50 am, slowly infused over 3 to 4 minutes.  Murray said Michael finally fell asleep around 11 am.
 
Dr. Murray said he monitored Michael  long enough until he felt comfortable to leave the room, that’s when Murray told the detectives that he went to the bathroom and was gone for about two minutes.
 
Murray said when he came back, he found Michael not breathing with an accelerated pulse.   Murray said he began mouth to mouth on Michael, and then chest compressions with one hand.    Murray said he couldn’t take Michael off the bed to a harder surface, so he improvised by placing his left hand under the body.  Murray said while he was giving compressions, he called MJ’s assistant on his cell.   He said didn’t ask the assistant to call 911 because he was busy giving CPR.  Murray also told detectives he didn’t call 9-1-1 himself because he didn’t know the zip code for Michael’s house.
 
Dr. Murray said he lifted Michael’s legs in the air to get more blood flowing to his heart.  Murray told detectives that he then went downstairs to ask Michael’s chef to get security, who called 9-1-1.  Murray continued CPR until the paramedics arrived and hooked Jackson up to a pulse oximeter and got him intubated.
 
Murray told detectives paramedics were talking to UCLA medical center and ready to give up, but he begged them to transfer care to him because Michael was his friend.   Murray rode with Michael in the ambulance to UCLA, where Murray said they worked on Michael for about an hour.
 
After Michael was gone, the ER doctor asked Murray what happened, and he told her that maybe it was a massive pulmonary embolism.  Murray told detectives he didn’t sign the death certificate because he didn’t understand the cause of death.
 
As far as Michael’s use of drugs, Murray told detectives he was surprised at Michael’s knowledge about all the different pills and medications he took.   Murray said he first learned that Michael used Propofol when he asked Dr. Murray to help him get the drug.   Murray said that Michael gave him the number of another doctor who would be able to provide it to him.   In the interview, Murray said he called the other doctor, who said, “Michael loves that drug.”
 
Murray said he gave Michael Propofol every night for 30 days, except for three when he was trying to “wean him off.”  Murray insisted that in the three days before Michael’s death he was trying to wean him off “milk,” giving MJ more Lorazepam and Diazepam to bring down the Propofol.    Murray said two nights before MJ’s death, he had given him no Propofol and thought he was “onto  something.”
 
The next night, that wasn’t the case.

I thought the investigators and the medics all saw the full urine receptacles in MJ's room? Me thinks Murray is getting caught trying to cover his axe and nothing is adding up.

Even if MJ did inject himself which I don't believe for one second, Murray left the drugs within MJ's (who Murray himself described as an addict) reach. That's like leaving a loaded gun in a room full of children and the gun owner is responsible. Murray is responsible for MJ's death. In his own words, he put these drugs in MJ's body.

Holy crap that is a LOT of drugs. I dont care what anyone says If MJ was able to take that much meds and it didnt put him to sleep right away he was a full blown addict. 2 or 4 mgs of midazalam should have had him to sleep for 4 hrs at least. And to add the rest of the crap on top of that WOW. MJ was doing drugs LONG before Murray came into the pic.

Remember, Murray had 2 days to think of a story that would appease what the media was already throwing out there for everyone to see/hear....including Murray. Example: he was saying he was giving compressions to MJ on the bed with one hand UNDER MJ body to support him. 2 days later he now had time to answer the questions being asked by fans, media etc. He was missing for 2 days after MJ died!! What was he hiding over those 48 hours??

wow, considering he had 2 days to get his story straight he didn't do a very good job.

1. inconsistencies with the pee bottle and whether he was on phone or peeing.
2. he couldn't get jackson on the floor (6'5" hulk can't drag a skinny bloke to the floor) and does cpr with one hand behind jacksons back.
3. was too busy doing cpr to call 911, but was not too busy to stop either chest compressions or supporting the back and make not one, but two calls, neither to 911.
4. This interview would also indicate that murray got jackson hooked on propofol in the first place. He was his personal doctor for 2 months (approx 60 days). He had been giving jackson propofol every night for 30 nights....so the previous 30 nights he didn't use propofol, so he wasn't addicted then.
5. If jackson was warm and had a pulse then jackson should have been able to be saved by a cardiologist (where was your defibrilator doctor...surely you know you need one). If he had done proper cpr on the floor with both hands and called 911 immediately (der...just der) he could have saved jackson.

This guy must be some sort of sociopath to have the nerve to say he did not cause this death. He is only facing 4 years, wouldn't a normal person say "i'm sorry, i was wrong on so many levels" and cop this very light punishment instead of dragging it out and embarrassing himself even more by trying to convince people that anything he did was acceptable, because from start to finish nothing was.

I call BS on his "didnt give him Propofol for days". Didn't the coronor report say that there was traces of Propofol in the urinal found in the bedroom?? They even showed a picture of the urinal in court and it was pretty full. IF he had not given him ANY of the drug in the length of time he claims, unless that urine had been sitting in the urinal in the bedroom for three days it would NOT have traces of the drug in it since Murray claims he didn't give MJ any until rigt before 11 am! And who the heck doesn't go straight from emptying the condom cath bag to the toilet when you empty the cath bag INTO the urinal (yes, I'm a nurse, so I see both regular foleys and condom cath foleys alot). Gross.
Other thing...in the initial autopsy report that we were all picking apart here when it was released, I thought it said that there was NO propofol residual at the TOP of the IV tubing but there was some down by the injection port closer to the IV insertion site. Are they now saying that the bag hanging at the bedside had a propofol bottle IN it? Because if it did, and that IV fluid was infusing, there would have been drug residual top to bottom in that IV tubing, not just down by the injection site. So was there another IV bag/tubing in the room-on the pole besides the one that had the bottle-in-the-cut-open bag?

He called the assistant while performing chest compressions? My God, does he think we are fools?

To call this man a physician-well, it's laughable. They are going to have a great deal of difficulty tendering any defense for Dr. Murray. It's just not there.

JACKSON FAMILY NOW PLANS TO DO A-N-N-U-A-L "MICHAEL" TRIBUTE SHOWS


Apparently, the Jacksons and their profit-seeking business "investors" feel that they're doing an excellent job with this tribute and plan to do it every single year for the rest of their lives. They are probably hoping that this copyright/livestreaming mess gets all sorted out by next year and then they can start charging 800 million gullible fans in over 100 countries $5 each ANNUALLY! That amounts to about $4 billion every single year. Oh, they must be salivating... But, of course, this will all be done -- not for MONEY -- but to "honor" Michael, for "charity," and "for the fans."

There is NO END to the GREED in this family.


MESSAGE TO ENTIRE JACKSON FAMILY: The FANS want you to IMMEDIATELY STOP using your son, brother, and uncle for MONEY-MAKING VENTURES to line your personal bank accounts. We want you to STOP partnering with Michael's worst enemies and most loathed associates who betrayed him. WE WILL NOT SUPPORT ANY of your money-making attempts, ESPECIALLY when it involves "charity," as we now KNOW you are all a bunch of liars and thieves. We want you to STOP exploiting Michael's children and turning them into people like yourselves. We will ONLY support ESTATE-APPROVED ventures. JUST STOP everything you are doing to make money. We have had ENOUGH! No more books, songs, concerts, belts, perfume, ice cream, champagne, jewelry, clothing, or ANYTHING ELSE to "honor" him. JUST STOP. NOW. EVERYTHING.


Michael Jackson - Michael Jackson's Family Plan Annual Tribute Show

07 October 2011 06:45:11 AM


Michael Jackson's family want to hold an annual tribute concert to the late star following this weekend's Michael Forever show in Wales.


Michael Jackson's family want to hold an annual tribute concert to the late star.

A tribute to the late 'Beat It' star, Michael Forever, will be held at Millennium Stadium in Cardiff on Saturday (08.10.11) - with starts including Christina Aguliera, Cee Lo Green and Smokey Robinson among others performing - and his brother Tito wants to make it an annual event.

He told Welsh newspaper The Western Mail: "Hopefully we can do this every year to remember his legacy, that's something that we enjoy doing."

Tito and other members of Michael's family band, The Jackson 5, are set to perform during the course of the evening, and he the late star's children, Prince, 14, Paris, 13, and Blanket, nine may even make an appearance onstage, although they will not perform or sing.

Tito added: "The children are so glad to be [in England], they're going to have a great time. They might be on the stage.

"Come the finale they might be on the stage, you never know. It's a spontaneous reaction, whatever happens, happens."

Tito also talked about how he feels Michael would want his legacy to be remembered.

He added: "People ask, 'What do you think Michael represented when he was here on earth?' and my first answer is not music but his heart, what he did for people, how he tried to change the world and make the world a better place."
