Michael Jackson's Autopsy Doc

MJ Didn't Kill Himself

10/11/2011 12:37 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

101111_dr_murray_v2_video
The doctor who declared Michael Jackson's death a homicide claims it's extremely unlikely the singer killed himself with a deadly dose of Propofol -- insisting Dr. Conrad Murray is more likely to blame.

Dr. Christopher Rogers just testified -- Murray's description of the final moments leading up to Michael's cardiac arrest just doesn't add up.

Murray claims he left for two minutes to go to the bathroom -- and when he returned, Michael wasn't breathing. The defense will argue MJ self-administered a deadly dose of Propofol in that time.

But Rogers insists ... Murray's scenario is nearly impossible -- because in that two minute window, MJ would have had to wake up (under the influence of several powerful sedatives) and skillfully administer the deadly dose ... which would then have had to travel to his brain, causing him to stop breathing.

What's more likely, according to Rogers -- Murray administered several doses of Propofol in the hours leading to Michael's death without properly measuring them out ... resulting in an overdose.

4:05 PM: Rogers seemed to soften his initial position during cross-examination -- claiming it's unlikely MJ injected himself with a deadly dose of Propofol ... but it's still possible.

Hope Murray fries. Disgusting how he keeps blaming Michael for administering the dose. Impossible. MJ had insomnia he was not asking for this medication to make him high just to get some sleep. He wasn't drinking alcohol to go to sleep, smoking pot etc. He wanted (mistakenly) a doctor to control the situation. Sad. Murray was greedy and needs to pay for the crime.

What    

It's amazing how little TMZ understands about propofol. Administering several doses over the course of hours would not result in an "overdose" as it's rapidly cleared from the body. Also, there would be nothing "skillful" about MJ pushing a syringe of Propofol. All you have to do is push whatever remaining amount was in the syringe and voila, he stops breathing.

Murray looks like an underachiever. What I mean is that he does not look intelligent. His eyes are always closed or look closed, his expression is.... expressionless. He couldn't look more guilty if he was wearing a black tie....lol.

The sole reason he says MJ could not have accidentally killed himself is that 2 minutes was not long enough, but that's not really proof MJ didn't kill himself. It's just proof that the timeline is screwed up.

Doc also said Murray was injecting two or three tablespoons without precision measurements. What the lawyer failed to ask is whether an error of one table spoon could have killed MJ. We still don't know, but the drug does have a "narrow theraputic window," which means it's easy to accidentally kill someone with it.

He based his homicide conclusion on murray leaving the room for 2 minutes. HUGE mistake! Phone records show murray was out for a lot longer talking to his girlfriends. This guy may have screwed the case against murray.

MJ de-vilified propofol by calling it "MILK"
MJ de-vilified wine by calling it "Jesus Juice"
What the heck did he mean by "sharing my bed"

So Dr. Murray said he left for two minutes to go to the bathroom? I think it's more like a guilty conscious coverup on himself for something or where was he really at that time?

And with saying Michael injected himself with a deadly dosage of Propofol you can not inject yourself like that alone. The minutes you put it inside your system you will fall asleep immediately, and then you wake up like minutes later.
