Conrad Murray

I Can Still PROVE

I Didn't Kill MJ

Dr. Conrad Murray believes he can still PROVE Michael Jackson injected himself with a fatal dose of Propofol -- and now he's begging an appeals court to let him test his theory.

Murray's lawyers are filing a new motion in his appeal -- claiming a vial of Propofol could hold the key to his innocence ... if only a judge would allow forensic testing to search for traces of lidocaine.

The lidocaine is important because the prosecution argued that Murray hooked MJ up to an IV bag containing the fatal dose of propofol and left him alone ... but first, mixed the Propofol with lidocaine to ease the sting of the drug.

Murray claims testing will prove there was NO lidocaine on the vial ... because Jackson injected himself with a pure dose of Propofol ... and killed himself.

Murray -- who was found guilty of manslaughter and is currently serving time in L.A. County Jail -- has already made two requests for testing. Both were denied by the judge who presided over his trial ... and ruled that Murray should have made the request BEFORE the trial began.

Murray's team will file the motion in California later today. It could take months before the court makes its decision.

Conrad Murrays lack of care for his patient well being is what killed Michael jackson. he failed to tell the paremedics and the doctors the truth, it took him an hour to call 911. MJ was not a drug addict popular to what you guys want to believe. if he was his body would of shown signs on his organs which were healthy for a 50 year old man. ppl before making up things get the facts straight. I am happy this idiot is in jail. 4 years is simply not enough

Here's the kicker, Murray doesn't know WHAT happened because Murray wasn't in the room, and THAT's why Murray is in jail and was convicted of Murdering MJ.
You DON'T give a patient a powerful sedative like Propofol outside of a hospital, and even then you don't take your eyes off of the patient for any reason. Murray did both. He administered Propofol OUTSIDE of a hospital setting, and then left his patient alone without proper monitoring equipment.
So, even if Dr. Murray could prove that MJ did it himself, Murray would still be held responsibile and he's still guilty of administering Propofol outside of a hospital setting and then leaving his patient alone without proper monitoring equipment, which resulted in the death of Murray's patient, MJ. Period.
What part of that does Murray NOT understand?

Los Angeles (CNN) -- Conrad Murray wants a key piece of evidence tested which his lawyers argue could prove Michael Jackson injected himself with the drug that killed him.


Murray, who is serving a four-year prison sentence, is appealing last year's involuntary manslaughter conviction in Jackson's 2009 death.


A motion filed Monday by his lawyers asked an appeals court to order a test of the residue in a 100 milliliter bottle of propofol that prosecutors say contained the fatal dose of surgical anesthetic.

If it contains 10% lidocaine, then it would support prosecution expert Dr. Steven Shafer's theory that Murray rigged up an IV drip using the bottle and then left the room, Murray's motion said.

Shafer testified that lidocaine, which was found in Jackson's blood after his death, was mixed with propofol to ease the sting of the drug as it entered a vein in Jackson's leg.


"However, if the residue is 100% propofol, it would absolutely refute Shafer's final contention that was used to prove an IV propofol infusion," the motion said.


The defense theory was that a desperate Jackson, fearing that his comeback concerts could be canceled unless he found elusive sleep, self-administered propofol that Murray was trying to wean him off of. It contends that Jackson also swallowed eight lorazepam tablets while Murray was not watching.


Two requests by Murray's lawyers to have the bottle tested after the trial were rejected by the trial judge, who ruled they should have asked for testing before the trial.


Murray's lawyers argued the residue in the bottle, which the prosecution never tested, became relevant only at the end of the prosecution's case" when Shafer "remodeled" his theory about how Jackson died.


"Dr. Shafer made a striking change in his rebuttal testimony, which occurred during the final minutes of the evidentiary portion of the trial," Murray lawyer Valerie Wass said.


Murray told police he stopped using IV infusions of propofol to help Jackson sleep three days before his death, and that he only injected a small dose the morning he died.


"The amount of propofol Murray claims he gave Jackson does in fact comport with the amount of propofol found in Jackson's blood at autopsy," Murray lawyer J. Michael Flanagan said. "There was no propofol infusion on the morning of Jackson's death. The analysis of the residue in Exhibit 30 will prove the truth once and for all."


The motion asks the appeals court to order the Los Angeles County Coroner to either test the residue or hand it over to a private lab for testing.

Conard Murray guilty verdict was used as an example to the other doctor's regarding authorized prescriptions, because of the failed verdict of Anna Nicole Smith trial which was a blow to the DA office. We all know MJ was an addict and majority of your addicts will due anything for a fix, even murder?

I'd give him one and only one try at this, since he's so insistent.

I don't think that would prove anything because like he said he put the propofol in the IV bag and then put the lidocaine in the bag. So it sounds to me like there wouldn't be lidocaine on any of the propofol vials. I'm sure the good Doctor knows this and that's why he's so eager for the testing. I bet he's done nothing but think of ways to beat the wrap the whole time he's been in there. I hope he rots, because the bottom line is it was immoral (and should be illegal) for him to give MJ the drugs in that setting anyway, without any safety equipment etc…this was an accident waiting to happen.

He can never explain away the fact that he left the room while leaving MJ under and talked on the phone for 45 minutes. He further cannot explain why he didn't immediately call 911 and instead called MJ's assistant to come to the house. He further cannot explain his narcissistic behavior on the do***entary he was shooting before and during the trial. He cannot explain why his own attorneys were racking their brains to come up with garbage to feed to outlets like TMZ (who clearly took the bait) to garner sympathy for Murray. He's guilty!

Of course there is no Lidocaine in the bottle. Lidocaine is used to ease the sting when Propofol is injected. If Michael was already out cold and Murray was only using the 100ML bottle to keep him under, why would he need Lidocaine to ease the sting on someone who is already under. Nice try MURDERER!
