Charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson, Dr. Conrad Murray, is expected to launch a defense based on two points:
- Michael Jackson killed himself with a lethal dose while alone in a room
- Other doctors were enabling and excessively medicating the star too
Point #1 could be tough to establish, but certain items found in the room where MJ tragically died could bolster Murray's bid to prove the latter.
Murray was Jackson's personal physician until his 2009 death.
Evidence in the room suggests certain potent drugs were "prescribed and prepared" for the star to self-medicate, according to new reports.
That could be a significant boost for the embattled doc.
Lawyers for Dr. Conrad Murray will not dispute the L.A. County Coroner's finding that Michael Jackson died of a massive Propofol overdose.However, his attorneys will present evidence that Michael awoke, then gave himself the fatal dose of Propofol when Murray left the room.
Whether evidence found at the late King of Pop's residence will be used in an attempt to implicate other doctors in MJ's death is unclear.
You can bet that Jackson's doctor shopping over two decades and how that wore his body down will be mentioned relentlessly, however.
