**Dr. Conrad Murray confessed to drugging Michael Jackson.**
No sooner than I post a positive story about Michael Jackson, I receive shocking and devastating word regarding his personal doctor, Conrad Murray. Apparently, he has allegedly confessed to administering the drug Propofol to the King of Pop which may have resulted in his death, authorities are saying. Although we all have speculated this to be true, this is the first time police are corroborating what we all thought.
From Essense.com via TMZ.com:
Multiple law enforcement sources tell TMZ.com that Dr. Murray told LAPD detectives two days after his death that he administered Propofol to the singer hours before he died. Police suspect Dr. Murray simply wasn't paying attention when Jackson's heart stopped beating. Authorities also say that Dr. Murray may have actually fallen asleep during the time the drug was administered and may have awakened to find the singer already dead from heart failure.
The medical community considers it reckless to administer an IV drip of Propofol without an EKG on hand to monitor the patient. The EKG sounds an alarm when the patient's pulse drops too low. There was no EKG found in Jackson's rented mansion.
Dr. Murray is currently being investigated on manslaughter charges.
XIKhai and I are outraged and stunned by this new development. This is all too crazy! I’m at a lost…wow…Now, everyone is speculating whether it was done intentionally with (Kevorkian-style) or without MJ’s consent or was it completely accidental. All I know is he had better watch his back, because if this rings true and he is charged, some crazy MJ fans will have his head (literally). Regardless, Murray was wrong for administering an anesthetic drug without proper medical equipment and should definitely be brought to justice in the role he played in MJ’s death.
**Statement from Katherine Jackson regarding her son's will.**
Also being reported:
ESSENCE.com received the following statement directly from the publicist for Katherine Jackson's attorney L. Londell McMillan:
Mrs. Jackson continues to serve as her son's most trusted and loyal advocate even in death. In an effort to gain more facts concerning a suspicious circle of relationships, unnotarized will and an undisclosed trust, both drafted in 2002, which grant the executors and trustees thereunder very broad powers, Mrs. Jackson has sought formal discovery of the temporary special administrators of her son's estate. The Court has made clear that it will consider Mrs. Jackson's demand for expedited discovery, and all other serious issues relating to the estate, on August 3rd. We are confident that at that time the court will allow Mrs Jackson full discovery.
To be clear, neither Mrs. Jackson nor her representatives seek to re-write her son's will. Her concerns are and remain the welfare of her son's surviving children, the preservation of his legacy and the protection of his estate. No one should deny Mrs. Jackson the right to help preserve and administer Michael's legacy especially those whom had almost no contact with Michael for numerous years prior to his death.
Through all of this, she is the only one who has her son's BEST interest at heart! GO Mama Jackson!
