Michael Jackson Autopsy Photo: Released, Disturbing

by at . Comments

In their most striking piece of evidence yet, prosecutors showed jurors today an autopsy photo of Michael Jackson, dead and naked, his body lying on gurney.

The photo, admitted in Dr. Conrad Murray's involuntary manslaughter trial, was taken hours after the star died. MJ's death, as we know, was ruled a homicide.

The date on the tiles beside his body reads August 25, 2009. However, Dr. Christopher Rogers claimed the date was a simple error, and should read June 25.

This was shown during opening statements. Today's image is far more graphic.

Rogers said it is extremely unlikely Michael Jackson killed himself with a deadly dose of Propofol, as Murray claimed in his opening statement two weeks ago.

Jackson's fingerprints were not found on the medication, but more importantly, says the doctor who did the autopsy, Murray's defense theory is very unlikely.

Rogers, in his testimony today, said that Dr. Conrad Murray's description of the final moments leading up to Michael Jackson's cardiac arrest just doesn't add up.

Murray claims he left for two minutes to go to the bathroom (a timetable his many women seem to contradict as well) and returned to find MJ not breathing.

The defense will argue MJ self-administered a lethal dose of Propofol in that time.

Rogers says Murray's scenario - which entails MJ waking up under the influence of heavy sedatives and skillfully administering a deadly dose that would travel to his brain, causing him to stop breathing in two minutes - is impossible.

More likely, according to Rogers, is Murray administering several doses of Propofol in the hours leading to Michael's death without properly measuring them.

That would result in an overdose ... and likely a prison term if a jury agrees.

This is sad!!
Conrad is guilty of medical malpractice that resulted in death. He departed from the standard of care the moment he decided to administer an anesthetic in the home. He did so knowing that it was not the correct thing to do. He obtained the medication by lying to the pharmacist and claiming that he had an outpatient surgery clinic and making up an excuse why he couldn't get it from a local pharmaceutical supplier.
He was greedy and Michael Jackson was an addict. Together they were a deadly combination!
Every day there is some patient trying to manipulate a provider into prescribing something they shouldn't have. It is up to the medical provider to say no!!

Michael Jackson was an addict. He was addicted to prescription medication that no one should ever have access too. All because he was the king of pop he got everything he want. What other person without money would get that type of anesthetic? No one. He used his money to get what he wanted. Murray wanted the money so he did what he paid to do. When Jackson overdosed Murray got scared and tried to cover his tracks.

Look, this is reality for all drug users in this country. Dr. Murry is a killer and he did not try to save Michael, why would he with all the money he was getting, he should be ashamed to say he is a doctor. Michael needed help not assistance to enable him more with his drug abuse.The photo is discusting, but again this is reality for all that take drugs and think they can kick the habit.My thoughts go out to the Jackson family and hope they all heal from this horrible event.

This reminds me of how Jesus was vilified, crucified, and then displayed for all to see, even though no sin was found in Him and He only came to show us LOVE. Even the wounds are very similar, and the white sheet. It is incredible to me. Lord forgive them He said.

If this picture is so disturbing to you all, then you have to ask yourself....why did I look at it? You wanted to have your morbid side satisfied. Blame all you want and damn them to hell for posting it if you like, but blame and damn yourselves for viewing it and go to hell with them.

A talented, kind, misunderstood person with the biggest heart in the world, showed in this state... poor poor man. As for the "Child molester" comments, grow up and get your facts right before you go around judging people who can't defend themselves. He was proved innocent. He was nothing more than a misunderstood man who didn't have a childhood and who wanted to live the life he never could. I would love to see you cope with what he coped with from such a young age. Who are you to judge? You should watch some of his home movies that were showed on tv and get to understand the man before you sit there so high and mighty. Some people are so SICK and CRUEL it is unreal.

I think they are a part of a group of people who are probably paid to speak badly of him to discredit him. Their language is so ridiculously vile that it says more about them than about Michael.
