The L A County coroner ruled Michael Jackson's death a homicide, a law enforcement official told the Associated Press on this afternoon. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the findings have not been publicly released.  Murray, Jackson's personal physician is the target of a manslaughter probe.

Meanwhile, a search warrant affidavit revealed that Jackson had lethal levels of the powerful anesthetic Propofol in his system when he died in his rented Los Angeles mansion on June 25.

The document unsealed Monday allowed officials to raid the Houston offices and storage facility of Dr. Conrad Murray last month.

According to the warrant, Murray, Jackson's personal physician, had been treating the singer for insomnia with the sedative for six weeks. According to the document, Murray said he had been trying to wean Jackson off the powerful sedative by using smaller doses in combination with the sedatives lorazepam and midazolam.

  1. While both are absolutely horrible, being addicted to “street drugs” (heroin, cocaine, crack, pot, etc.) is one thing ~ being supplied/injected with numerous prescription drugs for weeks or months on end by **doctors** is worse — that’s enabling the person in trouble, bad ethics, and in some cases, criminal.

    Doctors have a responsibility to their patients, and to their profession. Murray is a cardiologist ~ wth was he doing “treating” insomnia? He fucked up. Royally. MJ stops breathing at 10:50am, and Murray won’t let anyone call 911 until after 12pm?? And didn’t even tell the paramedics about all the stuff he pumped into MJ… Come on…….

    I hope he pays. Twice.

    As for Bart’s list..
    a) none of thosse ppl had a doctor in the room, administering numerous drugs that killed them
    b) From what I remember, not all of the ppl listed above died from an overdose (accidental or otherwise); Jimi Hendrix choked on vomit that was mostly alcohol, Andy Gibb died from a life-long heart condition [yes, made worse by yrs of drug use], Cobain, already depressed & suicidal, got high & blew his own brains out, and Rick James ~ though drugs were found in his system, the Coroner said none were enough to kill him.. that he died of pulmonary/cardiac failure.

  2. The amount of drugs that he administered is just ridiculous….

    — At about 1:30 a.m., Murray gave Jackson 10 mg of Valium.

    — At about 2 a.m., he injected Jackson with 2 mg of the anti-anxiety drug Ativan.

    — At about 3 a.m., Murray then administered 2 mg of the sedative Versed.

    — At about 5 a.m., he administered another 2 mg of Ativan.

    — At about 7:30 a.m., Murray gave Jackson yet another 2 mg of Versed while monitoring him with a device that measured the oxygen saturation of his blood.

    — At about 10:40 a.m., “after repeated demands/requests from Jackson,” Murray administered 25 mg of propofol, the document said.


  3. I’m not defending Murray, but the real one responsible for his death is Michael Jackson himself ! Just like Chet Baker, Kurt Cobain, Judy Garland, Andy Gibb, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Rick James, Heath Ledger, Jonathan Melvoin, Elvis Presley, Sid Vicious and so many others before him…
