Katherine Jackson

I Need Help from the Doc

Who Killed My Son

1/20/2013 6:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0114-katherine-jackson-conrad-murray-tmzKatherine Jackson is reaching out to the man who killed her son because she needs him badly for something ... TMZ has learned.

Katherine is in the throes of a wrongful death lawsuit against AEG, claiming the company negligently hired Dr. Conrad Murray and failed to properly supervise him.

Here's the problem.  She needs Murray on the record, explaining how the arrangement went down, so she's subpoenaed the jailed Doc. Katherine wants Murray to acknowledge AEG masterminded the plan to bring him on board.

It's ironic, to say the least, but Katherine is dealing with some bad options. She can go after Murray, but he doesn't have a pot to piss in. Or, she can try to bring him into the fold in order to go after the deep pockets -- AEG.

Now the real problem -- Murray's not cooperating. His lawyers, Valerie Wass and J. Michael Flanagan, are fighting the subpoena, trying to get it tossed on technical grounds.

So Katherine can persist ... and a judge could order Murray to tell all. But she doesn't want to unnecessarily antagonize the Doc, because a hostile witness is often a bad witness.

How can Katherine sue AEG for wrongful death when Conrad Murray was already convicted. Maybe it is time for Katherine to start giving Conrad something Money and freedom.

Katherine is pond s***. She was trying to make money off of Michael before his body was cold! She has gotten at least one $30 million dollar pay out from his estate and she is STILL grubbing for more money. She is 82 years old! What the hell does she want to buy? She will burn in hell.

Michael Jackson was an adult who chose to do this to his body.

Ah! How much more money do these people need? Conrad Murray might have been a poor excuse for a doctor but the fact is he was fully qualified, licensed doctor when AEG hired him. They hired him because Michael demanded it. Katherine should perhaps sue herself and her husband for their poor parenting skills which also indirectly led to Michael's death. Maybe she should also sue Michael's estate, because Michael was the person most responsible for his death.

It's not about getting money but punishing AEG for being so negligent hiring a quack doctor. Also I hope any money she gets will go to mj's children and not to her greedy evil children who kidnapped her.

Why the hatred towards Katherine Jackson?
Michael loved his mother and made her the chief beneficiary with 40% of his estate, She, more than anyone, is absolutely entitled to question AEGs role in her sons death.

I've often wondered what Murray would have done in London? Propofol would have been almost impossible to source over here. It is not readily available on the black market, and we have lots of regulations regarding supply over here. Murray would be a visiting physician in the UK, with no practice and only one patient. This would raise red flags for all pharmacutical suppliers.

From the trial, we also know that Murray was not stockpiling this drug in the US to import into the UK.
So he had to have a contingency plan for the UK.
What was it? If he had a rogue supplier over here, the authorities need to know. Or could it be that AEG were facilitating a supply?

Katherine simply wants to know the extent of AEGs involvement. Whether she likes it or not, Murray can answer this question. I'm sure she hates seeking Murrays cooperation, but she has no choice - she owes it to her son. Any mother would want this.

I admire her resolve. It can't be easy for her, at her age, to undertake such a stressful trial.
Especially when many so called 'fans' of MJ offer no support whatsoever.

REALLY??? I thought it came out in the trial that it was Michael who INSISTED on Dr Murray being his Dr (because Murray gave him anything he asked for) and the AEG people and others were trying to convince Michael to get a local Dr (london) and a better. more qualified one. I feel horrible for Mrs Jackson loosing her son, BUT some of these things reek of trying to get money for Joe and the other Jacksons who refuse to get a job. Mrs Jackson doesn't need a dime...she's taken care of WELL for the rest of her life.....I bet it's the others that have convinced her to go after the money. VERY SAD Michael was just like his mom....gentle,soft spoken, nice people who are easily manipulated and bullied by jerks. UGGGH and PLEASE don't throw Murray a bone....don't even acknowledge him....it puts him in the news (and he LOVES IT)

------------------------------------
Yes, AEG said a lot of nice things to the media shortly after MJs death.
However, the emails produced in evidence showed their true colours. Paul Gongaware called Michael lazy. Randy Phillips called him 'a basket case' full of doubt and self loathing. Yet AEG still continued to exploit MJ, although they well knew that he was vulnerable.
Should AEG get away with this?

I'm not bothered what Katherine does with the money if she wins. She can burn it or give it away if she wants.
What is important is the truth.
And if AEG are found to be liable, then they should pay.

************************
Whatever AEG's email negative comments were about MJ, it doesn't mean or prove they killed him in a court of law. Murray purchased and stock piled the propofol and inserted it into MJ's vein for 6 weeks thus proven in the court of law.

-------------------------------------------
No, of course it doesn't. The emails per se are not proof of exploitation. However, they do show that AEG had a very different attitude towards Michael in private, than the one they portrayed in public.
This wrongful death suit will fully investigate the extent of their involvement.
Whether they are found liable or not, at least we may get to know the truth.
