A grand jury investigating the death of Michael Jackson will hear testimony from the girlfriend of his personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, later this week.
Nicole Alvarez, 27, has been asked by the Los Angeles Country District Attorney’s office to appear before the Jackson grand jury, the L.A. Times reports.
Authorities still want to hear testimony from Alvarez, who has allegedly refused to cooperate with detectives investigating the star’s tragic June 25 death.
Not that it has any bearing here, but it is believed that Nicole Alvarez is also the mother of the doctor's love child, Che Giovanni Murray, born this year.
Michael Jackson (1958-2009).
Prosecutors recently seated a grand jury to probe the music icon's death. The coroner’s office has ruled Jackson’s death a homicide, but what that means in terms of prosecuting one or more offenders remains up in the air.
Dr. Conrad Murray is believed to be the principal, if not sole focus of law enforcement officials' examination into what killed the greatest entertainer in history.
It is widely assumed that Murray administered the powerful anesthesia Propofol and other drugs to Jackson, then tried to cover up his actions to a degree.
Murray has denied any wrongdoing. No charges have been filed in the homicide investigation, which is believed to be nearing its end. Soon. Probably.
