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.

Michael Jackson Autopsy Reveals Singer Was in Good Health

More details emerging from the official Michael Jackson autopsy report show the pop icon was reportedly “fairly healthy” for a 50-year-old man. Jackson’s death was ruled a homicide from an overdose of the anesthetic Propofol and sedative Lorazepam.


According to new information released from the Michael Jackson autopsy report, the singer was in relatively good health for his age and height. However, Jackson’s body was punctured by needle marks and he did suffer from lung damage and arthritis. No illegal drugs or alcohol was found in his system, although earlier reports indicate marijuana was found in Jackson’s home at the time of his death.

The report also states Michael Jackson had numerous scars, including scars around his face that may have been caused by plastic surgery. The singer also reportedly had tattoos under his eyes, his eyebrows and across his head, where Jackson was reportedly going bald.

The full autopsy report remains sealed and no one has yet been charged with Jackson’s homicide. The drugs contributing to Jackson’s death were administered by his personal physician Dr. Conrad Murray, who currently remains a target of investigation over his treatment of Jackson.

Michael Jackson Death Ruled Homicide by Drug Overdose

The death of Michael Jackson has been ruled a homicide by drug overdose, according to a press statement released by the Los Angeles Coroner’s office on Friday.

The body of Michael Jackson contained a lethal dose of the powerful anesthetic drug propofol along with a cocktail of other prescription drugs, according to official  autopsy results from the Los Angeles Coroner’s office. The official cause of death was listed in the press statement as acute intoxication from the anesthetic propofol. Because the fatal drug overdose contributing to Michael Jackson’s death was administered by a second party, the death of the pop icon has been ruled a homicide.


“The drugs Propofol and Lorazepam (Ativan) were found to be the primary drugs responsible for Mr. Jackson’s death. Other drugs detected were: Midazolam (Versed), Diazepam (Valium), Lidocaine (topical anesthetic) and Ephedrine,” the report from the coroner’s office concluded. The statement from the coroner’s office also detailed “other conditions contributing to death: Benzodiazepine effect.” Benzodiazepine is used to treat insomnia and anxiety. The final Michael Jackson autopsy results and toxicology test information is currently under a security hold by request from the Los Angeles Police Department and the Los Angeles County District Attorney.

The coroner’s determination that Michael Jackson died from a lethal overdose of propofol was first leaked last week by an unidentified police official.

Michael Jackson’s personal physician Dr. Conrad Murray has admitted to administering propofol and other prescription drugs to the singers in the hours shortly before his death, according to court documents recently released to the media. Murray is currently being investigated on possible manslaughter charges.

Searches of Michael Jackson’s home following his death revealed a large collection of drugs, including marijuana and a slew of prescription medications. The offices and home of Dr. Conrad Murray were also searched for evidence regarding his treatment of the late pop icon.

In addition to the drugs provided to him by Dr. Conrad Murray, evidence is mounting the singer was also provided with prescriptions by Jackson’s dermatologist Dr. Arnold Klein – illegally obtained in his own name and passed on to the singer. Dr. Arnold Klein is one of several men theorized to possibly have fathered one or more of Michael Jackson’s children. Klein admits he donated sperm in the past, but says he did not specifically donate with the intention of fathering children for Michael Jackson and does not know if he may be their biological father.

Murdered – Michael Jackson Death Ruled a Homicide

The death of Michael Jackson has been ruled a homicide, the Los Angeles County coroner has concluded. Michael Jackson’s personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, is currently the target of a manslaughter investigation in the case. Could Dr. Murray now be facing at least second degree murder charges? It’s doubtful the good doctor actually wanted to murder Michael Jackson, but certainly he had to be aware he was treading on very dangerous ground with all the powerful drugs he was pumping into him.


Michael Jackson was murdered. That’s the latest from the Los Angeles County coroner’s office on Monday, according to an unidentified police official who reportedly leaked information to the Associated Press.

Michael Jackson allegedly died from a combination of the powerful anesthetic propofol and at least two other sedatives administered just hours before his death, according to the Los Angeles Times. Court documents unsealed in Houston on Monday stated Michael Jackson had “lethal levels” of propofol in his system at the time of his death.

Dr. Conrad Murray, who was working as Michael Jackson’s personal physician, has admitted to police he gave the singer propofol before his collapse. According to court documents, Murray said he gave 50 milligrams of propofol to Michael Jackson almost every night to help him sleep, along with doses of other sedatives. Murray stated he had been treating Michael Jackson for about six weeks for insomnia. Propofol is an extremely powerful sedative normally only administered in hospitals to patients hooked up to heart and breathing monitors.

The official results of Michael Jackson’s autopsy have not yet been released. The Los Angeles County Coroner’s office has issued a statement to the press saying they currently “have no comment on the story that is circulating.”
