It’s hard to imagine that a drug addict’s death would be ruled as a homicide after he overdosed, but the Los Angeles Coroner’s office has did just that. And of course, they’re blaming Jackson’s doctor. TMZ reports:
Michael Jackson had lethal levels of Propofol in his system when he died, this according to a search warrant affidavit filed in Houston. Dr. Conrad Murray told cops he had been treating Jackson for 6 weeks for insomnia — giving him 50 milligrams of Propofol every night through an IV. Murray told cops he feared Jackson was getting addicted so he reduced the dosage to 25 mg. The morning Jackson died, Dr. Murray gave Jackson valium at 1:30 AM. Murray said the valium didn’t work so he gave the singer an IV injection of lorazepam — an anti-anxiety drug. Murray told cops Jackson was still awake, so he then gave him midazolam — a sedative. Murray gave Jackson more drugs. He says at 10:40 AM, he administered 25 mg of Propofol. Dr. Murray told cops Jackson repeatedly demanded the drug. As we first reported, cops found 8 bottles of Propofol in Jackson’s house after he died, but they do not know where it was purchased.
Whatever. When you have a dessert tray of prescription narcotics and surgical anesthesia by your bed to help you “sleep”, it’s not that far of a reach to think that one day you might, oh I don’t know, fucking die. Unless you’re destroying Tokyo or live on Skull Island, there’s no way in hell you need this much drugs to fall asleep. If you want put me to sleep, all you gotta do is give me a blowjob and turn on Grey’s Anatomy for five minutes. It’ll be like the Hulk put in a sleeper hold.
People has a timeline of his final hours here. In his last eight hours he took six different drugs to “help him sleep”.
UPDATE: Although his net worth at the time of his death was $1,360,839,979 (with $1,150,000,000 coming from the Beatles catalog) Michael Jackson had only $668,215 of actual cash in the bank (.05% of his networth).
