Coroner Attributes Michael Jackson's Death to Sedative
Physician Gave Propofol to Singer As a Sleep Aid

By Ashley Surdin
Washington Post Staff Writer

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 24 -- Michael Jackson died in his rented mansion June 25 from a deadly dose of the powerful anesthetic drug propofol, according to an affidavit unsealed Monday.

The Los Angeles coroner made that assessment after reviewing preliminary toxicology results from Jackson's autopsy, according to the search warrant affidavit given by police Detective Orlando Martinez.

Conrad Murray, the Las Vegas cardiologist whom Jackson called his personal physician, told detectives that he had been treating Jackson for insomnia for about six weeks, and had been giving Jackson 50 milligrams of propofol every night using an intravenous drip, the report notes. The affidavit was unsealed in Houston, where Murray has an office that was raided by U.S. agents on July 22.

Murray said he feared that Jackson was forming an addiction to the drug, which the singer allegedly referred to as "milk," and that he was trying to wean him off of it. So he lowered Jackson's propofol dosage to 25 milligrams, mixing it with two other sedatives, lorazepam and midazolam, according to the report. On June 23, two days before the singer's death, he reportedly gave Jackson lorazepam and midazolam, withholding the propofol.

On the day Jackson died, Murray tried to induce sleep at 1:30 a.m. with Valium; at 2 a.m. with lorazepam; and at 3 a.m. with midazolam, according to the affidavit. After Murray failed to put Jackson to sleep with additional doses over the next few hours, Jackson then demanded propofol. At 10:40 a.m., the report notes, Murray administered 25 milligrams of the drug and continued to monitor Jackson for 10 minutes, until Murray left for the restroom. Murray told investigators that he returned after no more than two minutes and noticed Jackson had stopped breathing.

But the story might be more complicated than that. Investigators have indicated through a series of search warrants that they are probing manslaughter, excessive use of prescribing medication and prescribing to an addict.

In the months since Jackson's death, police officers and the Drug Enforcement Administration have raided Murray's Las Vegas home and office, his second office and storage unit in Houston, and Applied Pharmacy Services, a pharmacy in western Las Vegas. They have searched for propofol information and copied computer data. And they have combed through cellphone records, storage receipts and evidence of names like Bianca Nicholas and Prince Jackson, just two of Jackson's nearly 20 alleged aliases.

Medical records have also been subpoenaed from Jackson's other doctors, including dermatologist Arnold Klein, general practitioner Allan Metzger and anesthesiologists David Adams and Randy Rosen.

The latest details surrounding the singer's death come two months after Jackson, 50, was rushed from his Westwood, Calif., mansion and pronounced dead at UCLA Medical Center. Occurring just before Jackson's planned comeback, with a series of 50 sold-out concerts in London, his death drew hordes of mourners from around the world to his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and his Neverland home, spiked sales of his music and inspired a televised memorial service watched around the world.

The cause of death, as yet unofficially released by the coroner's office, hardly comes as a surprise. For weeks, propofol has dominated reports of Jackson's death, as have stories about Jackson's heavy dependency on drugs and his revolving entourage of enablers. If anything, the results further focus attention on Murray, 51, who, according to his attorney Ed Chernoff, "just happened to find [Jackson] in his bed" not breathing.

Propofol, also known as Diprivan, is an IV anesthetic agent typically used in operating rooms to put patients to sleep in about a minute. In drip form, it keeps them asleep. It's reserved for procedures where a patient would otherwise be uncomfortable -- say, plastic surgery, a colonoscopy or hip replacement -- but must be meticulously monitored because the drug can stop a person's breathing.

Propofol is fairly easy for a doctor to acquire, but is never intended for home use, where proper equipment to resuscitate a patient is typically absent, says John F. Dombrowski, director of the American Society of Anesthesiologists. Nor is the drug ever intended to help someone with sleep troubles. "That'd be like me taking chemotherapy because I'm tired of shaving my head," Dombrowski says.

Authorities said they could find no evidence that Murray had purchased, ordered or obtained the medication under his medical license or Drug Enforcement Administration tracking number, according to the affidavit. But detectives found several unlabeled bottles of propofol in the house along with other vials and pills on Jackson's nightstand prescribed by Murray, Klein and Metzger, according to the affidavit.

The report noted that between March and April 2009, Jackson requested that Murray arrange to have Adams administer propofol, which he did. Murray also said he unsuccessfully asked Jackson to tell him about his other doctors and prescriptions when he noticed injection marks on the pop star's hands and feet -- marks Jackson told him were the result of a "cocktail."

The scrutiny has been tough on Murray, his attorney says. "He has to walk around 24/7 with a bodyguard. He can't operate his practice. He can't go to work because he is harassed no matter where he goes," Chernoff, a Houston-based criminal defense attorney, wrote on a blog he keeps to update the press. "Dr. Murray didn't prescribe or administer anything that should have killed Michael Jackson."

Despite the release of the report, it remains unclear whether Murray and others will be charged in connection with Jackson's death.

"I think it's far too early to say he'll be charged with any crime," said Laurie Levenson, a professor at Loyola Law School in Los Angeles. "We know that the coroner believes that this is a death at the hands of another. Now the question is whether that involved criminal conduct," she said, citing intent to harm and gross negligence as examples.

"Nobody should jump to the conclusion from the release of this report that Dr. Murray will be charged immediately or in the future," she added. "He is clearly the target of this investigation, and they are going through this with a fine-tooth comb."

If Murray or others were charged, it would mark yet another matter heading to the courtroom after Jackson's death. He left behind three children, a pile of debts and a complicated financial empire that are likely to be the subjects of legal proceedings and courtroom battles for years, legal experts say.

Earlier this month, a Los Angeles Superior Court judge awarded permanent custody of Jackson's three children -- Prince Michael, 12; Paris, 11; and Prince Michael II, 7 -- to the late singer's mother, Katherine Jackson. The same judge has also approved a $60 million deal for a feature film with Columbia Motion Pictures, a traveling memorabilia show and a slew of new Jackson-related merchandise.

Staff researcher Julie Tate contributed to this report.

That's why you have to stay off drugs, legal or otherwise. How can something bad not happen when your system is full of fifty different kinds of garbage, the long term effects of none of which has been studied. It's best to avoid medicine at almost all costs.

I love these idiots, and there are plenty on here, who think the FDA ensures the safety of drugs, or that any government agency can.

THERE IS NO SAFETY.

Tv is full of lawyers chasing clients for class action suits againts 100% legal drugs -- drugs 100% approved by the FDA -- that turned out to have lethal effects.

Default Macaulay Culkin the father of Jackson's son

Quote:
The 'Home Alone' star - who became friends with Michael in 1990, when he was just 10 years old - reportedly donated sperm to create Prince Michael II, known as Blanket.

The sperm was then inserted into an unknown surrogate mother, and Blanket was born in 2002, when Macaulay was 22 years old.

An insider told Britain's Sun newspaper: "It is well known Jackson and Macaulay shared a unique bond.

"Now rumours are spreading like wildfire that Macaulay, who Jackson nicknamed Mack, is actually Blanket's biological dad."

Michael and Macaulay were close friends for years. The child star frequently visited the singer's Neverland ranch - where he raised eyebrows by sleeping in Michael's bed - and took the witness stand to defend him during his 2005 trial for child molestation.

Michael is said to have idolised Macaulay, and thought using his sperm to create a child would be the "next best thing" to being Macaulay's father.

The source added: "This isn't just chitter-chatter, even Culkin suspects he's Blanket's father. So many names have been mentioned as prospective dads, and this is probably the wackiest yet.

"But Jackson and Culkin were best friends. He was one of the few people Jackson really trusted and Mack never let him down. Really, Jackson idolised him - that's why he asked Mack to donate sperm.

"Deep down, I think he always wished Mack was his son. Creating Blanket was the next best thing."

Friends claim Michael - who died in June - was not the biological father of his other children Prince Michael I, 12, and Paris, 11.

'Oliver' star Mark Lester and Dr Arnold Klein have both claimed they are the father of the children after donating sperm to Michael in the 1990s.

Macaulay has not commented on the paternity rumours.

So true and yet it's the drug companies that end up kicking the bucket in the end and the FDA continues on to approve yet more "safe" drugs. Thank your government agency for keeping us safe.

Coincidentally, common sense also claims Michael was not the biological father of his other children.

The *cough* nigger "doctor"

Quote:
LOS ANGELES -- Michael Jackson's doctor was charged Monday with involuntary manslaughter, capping an exhaustive investigation into the pop star's stunning death last summer and setting up the prospect of another sensational celebrity courtroom drama. Dr. Conrad Murray, a cardiologist who was with Jackson when he died June 25 at his rented Los Angeles mansion, is accused of acting "unlawfully and without malice" in bringing about Jackson's death, according to a complaint filed by prosecutors. The complaint said Murray acted "without the caution and circumspection required" when he administered a powerful sedative to Jackson in an effort to help him sleep. The charge was expected, and Murray's attorney, Ed Chernoff, said his client planned to surrender to authorities later Monday. "We'll make bail, we'll plead not guilty and we'll fight like hell," Chernoff said before the charge was filed. Jackson hired Murray to be his personal physician as he prepared for a series of strenuous comeback concerts in London. Officials say the singer died after Murray administered the powerful general anesthetic propofol and two other sedatives to get the chronic insomniac to sleep. Los Angeles investigators were methodical in building a case against Murray, wary of repeating missteps that have plagued some other high-profile celebrity cases, most notably O.J. Simpson and actor Robert Blake, both of whom were acquitted of murder. After reviewing toxicology findings, the coroner ruled Jackson's death at age 50 a homicide caused by acute intoxication of the powerful anesthetic propofol, with other sedatives a contributing factor. Propofol is only supposed to be administered by an anesthesia professional in a medical setting, because it depresses breathing and heart rate while lowering blood pressure. Murray appears to have obtained the drug legally and its use is not in itself a crime. To show the doctor was negligent in his care, detectives spoke to more than 10 medical experts to see if his behavior fell outside the bounds of reasonable medical practice. According to court documents, Murray told police he administered propofol just before 11 a.m. then stepped out of the room to go to the bathroom. There is some dispute about what happened next. According to court filings, Murray told police that upon his return from the bathroom, he saw Jackson was not breathing and began trying to revive him. But an ambulance was not called until 12:21 p.m. and Murray spent much of the intervening time making non-emergency cell phone calls, police say. The nature of the calls, which lasted 47 minutes, is not known. Murray's lawyer has said investigators got confused about what Murray had told them, and that the doctor found his patient unresponsive around noon. The investigation included several agencies, including the Los Angeles Police Department, the district attorney's office and the federal Drug Enforcement Administration. Many witnesses have been interviewed by police, including those who were present during Jackson's last days, those who worked with him in preparation for his series of comeback concerts, "This Is It," and members of his personal entourage, including his security guard and personal assistant.

Default When The Big Hand Meets The Little Hand


Gather round and listen up my children
This is a story that'll scare the turds right out of your underwear
It's about a place called Neverland
Where all the naughty boys have to go for a sleepover

The man who lives there is creepy and weird
He looks like the bearded lady but without the beard
By the day he's full of fun and games
But as soon as you go to sleep he tries to slither under your sheets

All you naughty boys are gonna be sorry
When the big hand meets the little hand
I know you're bad but this guy is worse
When the big hand meets the little hand

Now you might think that your parents are cruel
Sending you off to get molested is not very cool
But you should have thought about that when you were being bad
Now it's off to Michael Jackson's -- you should have listened to your dad

But if you're smart and quick to act
You just might escape with your virginity intact
Right before bed you've gotta ask to use the phone
Tell him you miss your parents and you have to call home

But instead of calling home dial 911
And when the operator answers, this is what you tell them:
"Help me I'm at Michael Jackson's house and he's
got his glove up my shorts"

All you naughty boys are gonna be sorry
When the big hand meets the little hand
I know you're bad but this guy is worse
When the big hand meets the little hand

All you naughty boys are gonna get a fright
When the big hand meets the little hand
'Cause Michael Jackson's gonna get you tonight
When the big hand meets the little hand

I remember when I was in Switzerland when I was younger, it wasn't uncommon to see people who literally almost didn't have any arms; their hands were practically where their shoulders were. This was the result of some drug which pregnant women had been encouraged to take at one time. That image has always stayed with me.

As for the FDA, they went and approved aspartame knowing full well that it causes brain tumors in monkeys, but they think nothing of raiding businesses that make health claims for harmless (and unpatentable) natural sweeteners like stevia. That in a nutshell tells you what the FDA is really all about.

Documents: Michael Jackson doctor interrupted CPR

By THOMAS WATKINS (AP)

LOS ANGELES Documents obtained by The Associated Press allege that Michael Jackson's doctor stopped CPR on the stricken star and delayed calling 911 so he could collect drug vials in the room.

The account was given to investigators on August 31 by Alberto Alvarez, Jackson's logistics director. He was summoned to the pop star's side by another Jackson aide who received a frantic call from Dr. Conrad Murray after Jackson was unresponsive.

Jackson died June 25 from an overdose of the powerful anesthetic propofol and two other sedatives administered by Murray. Alvarez said the doctor stopped CPR so he could hand him drug vials and told him to put them in a bag.

Murray's lawyer questioned Alvarez's account, saying that in an earlier statement to police he did not mention the vials.

Thalidomide. Approved in Britain. Was about to be approved here, if I recall the story. It's usually cited as an example of the FDA's great work, but that is not the case.

FDA should not exist. The problem is that the average person is too dumb to grasp that there is no safety, so he will always be open to demagogues who promise to protect him.

The involuntary manslaughter case against Michael Jackson's cardiologist has been assigned to a new judge in a brief proceeding in Los Angeles.

Dr. Conrad Murray, his attorneys and prosecutors assembled Monday before Supervising Superior Court Judge Peter Espinoza, who quickly assigned the case to Judge Michael Pastor and sent them to his courtroom.

Issues awaiting the new judge include setting a date for a preliminary hearing and Murray's fight to keep his California medical license.

The state attorney general, representing the state medical board, has moved to revoke Murray's license pending trial.

Jackson died from acute intoxication with the hospital anesthetic propofol and other sedatives. Murray has pleaded not guilty.
