Conrad Murray Eyes Newest Michael Jackson Attack

by at . Comments

Dr. Conrad Murray intends to argue that Michael Jackson killed himself by self-injecting a lethal dose of Propofol while the physician stepped out to use the bathroom.

While that sounds like legal grasping at straws, Murray's defense team says Michael Jackson's body - specifically his eyes - could be powerful evidence in his favor.

The supposed proof that Jackson accidentally killed himself, rather than overdosing on Propofol Murray administered, was obvious when the doctor came back in.

At that point, he says he saw Michael's eyes wide open and his pupils dilated.

Experts say if a patient is sleeping and overdoses, their eyes most likely would not be open. The defense contends Jackson woke up when Murray was not there, became frustrated he couldn't sleep, grabbed the Propofol bottle and "pushed it."

THE EYES HAVE IT: But does Dr. Murray's story hold water?

If a jury believes Jackson's eyes were open, they could also believe Jackson was awake and, perhaps, capable of grabbing the Propofol on the nightstand.

Authorities also say they have a clear explanation for why Michael trouble sleeping the night before he died - tablets that would have really riled him up.

An unlabeled bottle contained 13 tablets, each a combination of ephedrine, caffeine and aspirin. Each pill contained 25 mg of ephedrine, 200 mg of caffeine and 80 mg of aspirin. The caffeine alone is equivalent to nearly a six-pack of Coca-Cola.

According to the toxicology results, ephedrine was present in Jackson. Might he have gotten so hyped up that he felt he needed extra Propofol to sleep?

Murray likely thinks so, and won't accept a plea deal.

Now, you're asking us to believe that Michael Jackson 's eyes were open, so said, Dr. Conrad Murray. What a joke, believing this liar. This defense, is the most ridiculous thing, I ever heard. Dr. Conrad Murray, you are a despicable, vile, and a disgusting coward, who refuses to take responsibility for his own actions. Now. you want to blame Michael, asking us to believe that Michael injected himself. All I can say is, what a disgrace you are to the medical profession.

Michael's eyes may have been open in response to the cardiac arrest - pain etc - I find it hard to believe that Murray is now blaming his victim. Where did this guy get his medical degree? He has been lying and withholding information since day one. I sure hope the prosecution gets Dr Michael Baden as an expert medical advisor. He can talk about the so called heartbeat Michael had at the hospital - that was from the CPR - very common but doesn't mean he was alive. Our bodies react to whatever is being done to it. It's all just heartbreaking. Michael could have still been with us had this horrid, horrid man done his job correctly.

I don't understand this defense...isn't Murray still responsible as a personal physician? He made the drugs available. I don't think he would really use this defense. I'm curious to see the new movie, "Gone Too Soon". I wonder what it will say about Dr. Murray.

If Murray knew that MJ was addicted to medications why he left propofal within his outreach? I think Murray is lying.

whatever happened, it was done with negligence....if he knew MJ had a problem, he shouldn't have left the drugs out and within arms reach...if it was not injected by him, it was at least negligent homicide...

Conrad Murray: whatever you have to say, YOU ARE A DASTARDLY CRIMINAL! I am surprised you still have the audacity to confront, bearing in mind that you were illegally administering drugs that are FOR USE ONLY IN HOSPITAL ENVIRONMENT to a patient in their home. Conrad Murray, YOU ARE AN UNREPENTANT CRIMINAL AND YOU WILL ROT IN JAIL! Look at your life, it all speaks for you Mr Evil, wicked and greedy.
