Michael Jackson's Autopsy Doc

MJ Didn't Kill Himself

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

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.

Shame on TMZ... for displaying the autopsy photo of MJ. It was unnecessary, hugely irresponsible and clearly empathetic. Did you ever think about his family - especially his children? The photo will be on the net - indefinitely....

No he didn't "change his tune" or say that it is possible. It was extremely sarcastic. There is no way that MJ woke up and administered propofol and it went from his calf to his brain and he stopped breathing within 2 minutes.

Okay first. I really dont think the "doc" killed micheal.. micheal was an addict, just like the rest of them.. just becuase he could dance doesnt mean he wasnt a ******* addict. Anna nicole was an addict but she was hot? murray will be free! Murray is the only person that they could pin micheals death on besides himself.. The prosecutors wouldnt do that because the fans would go ape ****.

Am I the only one who notices that Dr. Murray could have made those 30 minutes of phone calls from the bedside?

While it's highly unlikely but possible that MJ injected himself, he would firstly not have had time to stop breathing in that time span, and secondly, if he theoretically did, there would have been ample time for A PROPER DOCTOR to revive him. That goes even if he stopped breathing completely, but as Dr Cooper stated, breathing doesn't stop abruptly, and monitoring device will show a lower oxygen level before the eye can detect that anything is amiss.

But MJ didn't hire Murray to not use him just because he went to the bathroom. A much more likely scenario is Murray administering more propofol than he admits to, and staying away for longer than he admits to.

According to the( California Penal Code Section 190.2 )

The penalty for a defendant who is founded quilty of murdering "

Michael Jackson"...(1) "INTENTIONALLY and Carrying out the Murder for FINANCIAl GAIN",this proves that "Conrad Murray" really should've been charged by the DA's Office with (Murder in the First Degree)!!! and not be undercharged with "Involuntary Manslaughter" (IMO)
