Dr. Conrad Murray, who was convicted of Manslaughter for the death of Michael Jackson was interviewed last Friday on MSNBC.
Michael Jackson died in the morning of June 25, 2009.
The title of the special is “Michael Jackson and the doctor: A Fatal Friendship”
Dr. Conrad explained why he did not call 911 right away the morning Michael Jackson died.
He said he is a trained cardiologist and he is capable to do anything that any paramedics can do.
This was the key topic on his trial. But he and his attorney cannot provide evidence to support his explanation on what happened that morning.
Murray believes that if Michael woke up that morning, he could have quit working because it was the result of his ‘own hands.’
Also on the show, Dr. Conrad claimed that he only ‘tip’ Michael Jackson to sleep.
He said that he just gave in to Michael Jackson when he begged that he really needs to sleep.
Murray said, “If I give him just a tiny amount of Propofol..25 milligrams.. slowly infused.. I may just tip him to sleep..and the other medications will now get a chance to work because he had a fair amount of medication on board.”
There was a recorded interview of Murray to the police two days after his death, and he said, he had already pumped MJ with sedatives Valium, Lorazepam, Midazolam, – but Michael still can’t sleep.
The doctor added that it was not the drug Propofol that led to his death but the ‘other’ drugs.
He was also interviewed on the Today Show before the verdict.
Dr. Conrad told NBC that he put MJ to sleep that day, and left the room to talk on the phone because he did not want to wake Michael up.
But when he spoke with the cops he said that he left the room to use the bathroom and was gone for only 2 minutes.
He also said that he regrets Michael Jackson’s passing.
