Conrad Murray

I Want to Commit Suicide

11/15/2011 11:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

dr conrad murray
Dr. Conrad Murray has been telling people who have visited him in jail ... he no longer has the will to live and he wants to kill himself.

We're told Murray cannot cope with the fact that he was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter, and even though his lawyers told him he needed to be prepared for the possibility of a guilty verdict, it never computed with him.

Sources tell us, Murray has told various people he wanted to kill himself, including baby mama Nicole Alvarez, his bodyguard Jeff and his lawyers.  He's told all of them he's lost his will to live.

We've also learned Murray remains in the medical ward at L.A. County Jail, which is where he's been for more than a week. 

Sources directly connected with Murray tell us he has no physical ailments and he is there because he's on suicide watch. 

Steve Whitmore, the spokesperson for the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept., tells TMZ they will not comment on why Murray has been in the medical ward, adding, "A person's medical or mental health status in the Los Angeles County Jail is protected under the law."

So overwhelmingly MJ fans want Doctor Murray to kill himself. Truly following the spirit of MJ before he was nailed to the cross. Sorry wrong one, truly following the spirit of MJ before he begged someone who was starstruck and financially dependent on him to hook him up to a potentially lethal drug he was probably addicted to because he was taking it for years in his house.

Americans feel sorry for this guy...he was railroaded. Everyone knows that MJ was too rich for someone NOT to be held liable. MJ was a druggie and liked kids.
love,
America.

What to make of this?
OK, I understand that this is hard on him - it is a life changing siruation in a major way. He MIGHT be contamplating suicide - but I doubt it. And Murray, YOU brought this on yourself. Sheesh, now he´s blaming his lawyers for not preparing him for this. Is he STUPID?
It is hard to believe a thing that comes out of his mouth, since every word that has escaped his lips for the past two and a half years has been a donright lie.
What I think is most likely, is that he is faking it to get better conditions (and nurses to flirt with? I hope they´re all MALE nurses!) He is also trying to send (fake) the message that he is too mentally frail to serve a prison sentence. Well, Murray, you weren´t too mentally frail to pump a genuinely frail person full of drugs every night - the setup in Michael Jackson´s bedroom reminds me of a horror movie. Murray wasn´t too frail for THAT, as long as the money was good...
He wasn´t too frail to let his dying/dead "patient" linger for the longest time, while he himself hid medicine instead of calling 911.
He could easily cope with recording his drugged up super-star patient.
This man is not frail at all. He should deal with his actions like a man, not whine about it endlessly.

I am not surprised. You could tell by his reaction when he was found guilty that he didnt understand what was going on. He was almost looking at the baliff's (sp) as if to say why are you behind me.. Yeah. Give him a little propofol and let him take a nap.

Hmmm... I fully support Conrad Murray in this decision, and I hope he finds a way to execute his desire as soon as possible. One less sick bastard for us to worry about.

Well played Dr. Conrad. Now you will be isolated instead of being tossed into the general population with some very angry brothers. Next move, hand him a loaded gun and call his bluff.

When I read that headline, I just shook my head. I've been saying all along that it was just a matter of time before TMZ had a headline that Murray found a way to off himself.
