A copy of the Michael Jackson death certificate released online lists the late pop icon’s cause of death as “homicide” by acute Propofol intoxication through “intravenous injection by another.” The Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office has confirmed the Michael Jackson death certificate published online is authentic.
The Los Angeles Police Department has reportedly completed their investigation into the death of Michael Jackson. No charges have yet been filed against anyone, but rumors are circulating Dr. Conrad Murray, Jackson’s personal physician, is in the line of fire. Murray has admitted to administering the powerful anesthetic Propofol to the singer shortly before his death, but claims he is innocent of any wrongdoing.
Dr. Conrad Murray has hired Britney Spears‘ former lawyer J. Michael Flanagan to defend him against any charges that may stem from the Michael Jackson death investigation. Flanagan successfully defended a nurse accused of killing a patient with Propofol in a previous case.
A spokesperson for the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office said at this time “no decision has been made and nothing has been filed” in the case. However, several tabloid sources have claimed insiders report manslaughter charges against Murray are expected within the next several weeks.
