Michael Jackson Dead When Paramedics Arrived; Secret Drug Stash Found at Singer's House

by at . Comments

When paramedics arrived at Michael Jackson's house, he was already dead and it took them a while to even realize the victim was the music icon, new reports say.

Jackson was flatlined when the paramedics arrived shortly after noon PST on June 25. There was no electrical activity in Michael's heart and no sign of life.

Paramedics wanted to pronounce him dead at the scene but Dr. Conrad Murray, Jackson's personal physician, insisted the singer be transported to the hospital.

As a higher medical authority than the EMTs, Dr. Conrad Murray had the power to overrule them. So it went and EMT personnel could not "call it" at his home.

Paramedics didn't realize for nearly 10 minutes the victim was Michael Jackson. As one emergency worker put it: "It just looked like a frail, old, sickly man."

Meanwhile, law enforcement sources continuing to investigate Conrad Murray say he kept a stash of drugs - including the powerful anesthesia Propofol, which they think stopped Michael Jackson's heart - hidden in his closet.

Sources say when the LAPD first searched Jackson's home the night he died, they did not turn up Propofol or many of the other drugs that were in his house.

Dr. Murray talked to the LAPD the following Saturday and the incriminating statements he supplied triggered another, broader search warrant, police are saying.

Cops returned to the house the next Monday and found "various drugs" clandestinely stashed in a closet of the guest room where Dr. Conrad Murray stayed.

Dr. Murray himself apparently told detectives about the closet when interviewed, triggering the search and ultimately a manslaughter investigation against him.

A law enforcement source tells TMZ that "The drugs were concealed... they weren't obvious." Among the stash - Propofol, the drug they believe killed Jackson.

I think they are going to have to give people more proof. Something is oddly weird about this entire story. Watching everything the day of his death, it almost seemed like they were trying to show SOMEONE that he was dead. Out of all the millions of pictures a paparrazzi takes, are you telling me there is just ONE PICTURE??? TMZ took the picture coming out of the house..to date, that is the only picture and I know that their cameras take dozens at a time...but yet, only ONE PICTURE. To me it looked like they were trying to show SOMEONE that he was dead. His name was never mentioned on the phone because NO ONE can actually say Michael Jackson's name was called into 911. The body has been missing ever since and again, ONE PICTURE ONLY. Something is very weird about this entire thing.

I've loved Michael since Jr. High school. I have always loved him. He was so caring and sensitive & mild mannered. He had a special talent as far as singing and dancing, he was the BEST. I loved him for his pure heart. He always seemed to have more sad moments, even from childhood, than he had happiness. Well now I hope in heaven/or paradise that he is finally happy and doesn't have to live to satify other people. Like his brother Marlon said "Maybe NOW, they'll leave him alone." He has childhood picture of being a sad child. I cared so MUCH about him. In my own little belief from Jr. High School, I always just thought that I would meet him and make him happy. I just wanted to see him him purely happy for one. I will always love you Michael. Sky

Michael Jackson was a drug addict. He is responsible for his death just like all the other 'regular' drug addicts whose addiction eventually takes their life. You can argue all you want about how he got these drugs. The reality is that he hooked himself on these drugs because of a variety of self-induced health issues that forced him to seek relief through prescribed medication.

I am still very sad and sometimes crying when I hear a song by michael that brings back good memories, I did not even know how much he meant to me until he died. RIP MIke. when you are rich the world is at your feet the doctor forgot about his oath and greed set in he forgot that he is to heal the sick not cater to their illness. He is going to get his.
