Dr. Conrad Murray's Defense Plays its Hand, Insinuates Michael Jackson Did Himself In

by at . Comments

After remaining mostly silent thus far, Dr. Conrad Murray's lawyers laid some of the groundwork for their defense at his preliminary hearing today.

He's charged with involuntary manslaughter in Jackson's death. Murray's lawyer, J. Michael Flanagan, asked a Coroner investigator two questions:

  1. Was the IV bag of Propofol fingerprinted?
  2. Was it possible for Jackson to reach the syringes from the bed?
Dr. Conrad

The defense will argue that Jackson killed himself by accident as he grew frustrated when he couldn't sleep and gave himself the fatal dosage.

Propofol, a powerful anesthetic, is what killed Jackson. An investigator for the L.A. County Coroner's Office said 12 bottles were found in his home.

A pharmacist Dr. Murray used to order Propofol testified that the doctor ordered box after box of the drug in the two months before Jackson died.

In all, Murray, the sole defendant in the Michael Jackson case, ordered 255 vials of Propofol in the two months leading up to the singer's demise.

It's still very early, but this just makes Murray look ...
