Michael Jackson’s embattled former doctor, who is being charged in connection with the King of Pop’s June death, feels officials are being shady with evidence.

Dr. Conrad Murray’s legal team believes the L.A. County D.A.’s Office is “suspiciously slow” in sharing documents from the involuntary manslaughter investigation.

As one Murray source puts it, “The prosecution had eight months to accumulate their evidence and we still haven’t received it. Something here just isn’t right.”

That is strange, we’ll grant the doc that.

Dr. Murray was charged earlier this month and his defense team has not ruled out a plea bargain in the case. But it’s a matter of what the case actually consists of.

But as one source connected to Murray said, because the defense team hasn’t received essential documents, “We don’t have enough to know if we’re going to deal.”

A spokesperson for the District Attorney’s Office calls any suggestion of impropriety “ridiculous,” saying, “There are hundreds of documents that are being stamped and when the process is completed, they will be turned over.”

A central issue: The Michael Jackson death timeline and contradictory findings and statements thereof. It will be very interesting to watch this shake out.
