Dr. Conrad Murray Breaks Silence in Video Statement

by at . Comments

The late Michael Jackson's personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, just posted a YouTube video in which he thanks his supporters for standing by him.

It is the first public comment made by Murray, who finds himself the center of the investigation into Jackson's untimely demise, since that fatal day.

In the video, recorded last week in Houston by the publicist for Murray's lawyer (yes, you read that correctly, his lawyer has a publicist), Conrad says:

"I want to thank my patients and friends who have sent such kind emails, letters and messages to let me know of your support and prayers for me and my family."

"Because of all that is going on, I am afraid to return phone calls or use email. I recorded this video to let you know I have been receiving your messages."

"I have not been able to thank you personally, which is not normal for me. Your messages give me strength and courage. They mean the world to me."

"Please, don't worry - as long as I keep God in my heart and you in my life, I will be fine. I have done all I can. I told the truth and I have faith the truth will prevail."

"God bless you and thank you."

According to numerous reports, Dr. Conrad Murray told the LAPD he administered a fatal dose of the powerful anesthetic Propofol to Jackson in his rented Beverly Hills mansion in the hours before his death on Thursday, June 25.

The timeline of Jackson's death remains a hot topic of debate among police.

Sincere? Heartfelt? Full of it? Just plain weird? What do you think?
