Dr. Conrad Murray’s Legal Defense Expected To Claim Michael Jackson Killed Himself. Dr. Conrad Murray will claim Michael Jackson killed himself. It has been learned that the King of Pop’s physician will allege the singer gave himself the fatal dose of Propofol as his legal defense. According to our multiple sources, Murray, who is facing manslaughter charge over the death of the music legend, will say that Jackson was the one who injected himself with the anesthetic. His argument is expected to claim that he gave Jackson 25 mg of Propofol from a 20 ml. bottle to help him sleep. He stayed in the room while the “Thriller” star dozed off but had to leave the room for approximately 2 minutes to use the bathroom. The defense theory is that while he was away for a short time, Jackson suddenly awakened and, frustrated that he spent nearly 9 hours trying to sleep, took the remaining of the 20 ml. bottle of Propofol and injected the contents through the IV. When Murray walked back in, he saw Jackson with his eyes open and pupils dilated. He then began administering CPR. Murray faces up to four years in prison if convicted.

Is LaToya Jackson right? Was Michael Jackson murdered by someone close to him? According to TMZ, the Los Angeles Police Department now is reportedly treating the death of Michael Jackson as a homicide. And they are focusing on Jackson’s personal physician of three years, Dr. Conrad Murray.
Who is this guy?
Murray was hired by AEG Live to accompany the pop star to London for his comeback concerts. According to AEG, Michael was adamant that Murray be hired because the singer had a “rapport” with the doctor. The Los Angeles Times reported that Murray was performing CPR on Jackson when paramedics arrived at his home on June 25, and Murray’s car was later towed by police from the home. Evidence points to the anesthesia drug Propofol as the primary cause of Jackson’s death, reports say. Vials of Propofol were found in Jackson’s home after he died. Law enforcement sources say there is already “plenty of powerful evidence” linking Murray as the person who administered the drug to Jackson. The evidence includes: the Propofol, an IV stand and oxygen tank found in Jackson’s home. Will you be surprised if this dude says Jackson injected himself with this IV drug? Ladies and gentleman, place your bets.
