Investigators in Michael Jackson Homicide Case Being Extremely Thorough

by at . Comments

Michael Jackson passed away June 25, and Dr. Conrad Murray has been the singular focal point of the police investigation into the star's death for months now.

Still, no charges have been pressed. What the heck's taking so long?

The LAPD and the D.A.'s office have two words for you: O.J.

MJ's homicide investigation is taking so much longer than expected, because, as one law enforcement source connected with the case said, "We've had bad luck with big cases like O.J. in the past, and we don't want to repeat those mistakes."

O.J. Simpson, many of you surely recall, was acquitted of double murder in 1995 despite a seemingly air tight case - one that unraveled after various blunders.

Fortunately, O.J. got his 13 years later after he kidnapped and robbed some people. But the police want to make sure Murray doesn't slip through their fingers.

This Is It

The source also pointed to the Robert Blake case, which some experts believe was also botched. But the source added, "There is not a problem with the case."

"Time is on our side. We want to do this right."

There is no pressure to speed things up, department insiders say, and as a result, the L.A. County D.A.'s office and the LAPD have been meticulously working as a unit to "anticipate defense strategies and prepare for them."

The D.A.'s office is actively involved, requesting lots of info from the LAPD as the investigation proceeds. Among the issues they are still yet to fully reconcile:

  • Officials have keyed in on Applied Pharmacy in Las Vegas, and want to make sure there were no other pharmacies sending Propofol to Dr. Conrad Murray.
  • Another issue: authorities have gone back to their medical experts for more input, as "strategies have changed" in a case they call "very complicated."

As for when the investigation will conclude, authorities are saying they'd like to end it "before the Christmas holidays," but that could get pushed to January.

Michael infatti Aveva paura per la vita dei Suoi figli.Hanno forse chiesto qualcosa al dr.Murray?

Well, I'd say part of the problem in any case like this is getting the idiots to stop saying things like, "This murderer must be brought to justice!" before they've seen the case laid out in a courtroom. You shouldn't condemn people, no matter how seemingly "guilty," no matter how many fingers point toward them, etc. until you know the facts of the case as clearly as they can be known. Yet so many have "leaked information" and know of Murray's troubles via random "tabloid journalism" and such and now call for his head? It's not very moral...not very Christian...not very American...not very anything but idiotic and possibly hypocritical. People need to grow up.

I can't believe this is taking so long. Really, Dr. Murray was a DR, and he KNEW that this drug was powerful. What the heck was he giving it to Michael for? Plus, Michael Jackson obviously needed HELP. Aren't DR's supposed to help their patients. I think LaToya summed it up perfectly when she said "If I asked you for a million dollars, would you give it to me?" No. Obviously. So, why would this DR. Now three children are without a parent...and as much as I hurt everyday knowing that Michael is not here, I cannot imagine the unbearable pain of his children. This is life long. Paris will have no daddy to walk her down the isle, no daddy to show their newborn babies too. JUSTICE must come. Dr. Conrad Murray is a MURDERER.

We know what killed Michael,...a greedy money grubbing slinger with gambling debts to pay along with pending child support cases and what not hanging over his head.
Official C.O.D. is in fact listed as HOMICIDE.

Good things come to those that wait.
I would much rather that authorities take their time and make sure everything is in proper order rather than have Murray slither free via some long drawn out appeals process.
One day soon we will all turn on the news and the indictments will have come down and we will get to see Murray answer for what he has done.
It won't bring Michael back,...however it will allow for some small measure of earthly justice to be rendered.
True justice will be waiting for Murray when he makes his own way to the other side,...God will take care of Murray far better than any earthly judgement can.
