Michael Jackson's Death Ruled A Homicide

Michael Jackson's Death Ruled A Homicide

The Los Angeles County Coroner has reportedly ruled Michael Jackson‘s death as a homicide, a law enforcement official has told the Associated Press.

An autopsy of the King of Pop found lethal levels of the anesthetic propofol in his body, which was administered hours before he died in an L.A. mansion on June 25.

A search warrant unsealed today reveals Jackson‘s doctor, Dr. Conrad Murray, had been giving the singer 50 milligrams of Propofol every night using an intravenous line. He told LAPD that he had been treating Jackson for insomnia.

A rep for the Jackson family tells JustJared.com, “The Jackson family has full confidence in the legal process, and commends the ongoing efforts of the L.A. County Coroner, the L.A. District Attorney and the L.A. Police Department. The family looks forward to the day that justice can be served.”

First!! i hope that sorry doctor gets the electric chair

I truly loved MJ’s music, cried like a baby when he died. His children are the ONLY victims in my opinion. He was a drug addict, the doctor is gonna go down for it, but I hope the “Jacksons” aren’t gonna come out like victims. Even Kathryn knew what was going on, she didn’t help him because she needed his money too. The family was so dependent on his money they couldn’t help him for fear of being cut off. Only victims are his children, NOT THE JACKSONS, they knew! For Goodness sake WE knew! Elvis doctors have been around for a long time.

this man is in a better place & i cringe at every update i see. i wish the press would just let him be

This is B.S. If a regular joe out there had died the same way no one would give a crap but because it was the King Of Pop all of a sudden it had to be a homocide. I guess it pays to have rich family members.

How could have anyone known?

@Alex:
thats why it is getting a media coverage special person. he had such a big impact on this world that we didnt even know of until we look back and think. and its a damn shame that his life ended quick and like this way. MJ i love you and all i want is for you to rest in peace.

You know, I am sympathetic to the Jackson kids but seriously….what the f*ck did MJ think was gonna happen if he kept taking drugs, especially anesthetics? I mean seriously, it’s his own d*mn fault. That whole Jackson family is f*cked up, and I’m sorry but while this doc deserves to have his license taken away he does not deserve prison…..he was only doing what the stupid rich pay for. The fault lies with M and his dumb family, they knew what was going on but you know what, they let him be, now they need to get over their own guilt and stop making money off MJ…..that’s all they used him for anyway.

isn’t it partly Michael’s fault?

Well there’s a surprise – NOT. Too much speculation for it not to be true.

aww how sad. he didnt have to go. I hope those doctors are brought to justice

yes it’s sad that michael is dead and his doctors should be hulled out on to the carpet. but the reality michael is equally as responsible for his own death. no one put a gun to his head and told him to take all those drugs over the years.

@Alex: I agree, but I think a lot of people played a role in his death . . .including Michael himself. They all could of said no to him, but instead he surrounded himself with yes men. I don’t doubt Michael always put his kids first, but when it came to drugs he put that first. Terribly sad and I think he was sad for a long time.

I do think Michael had a part in his own death. But if MJ was asking for all those drugs the doctor had the authority to say “no.” He did kill MJ, those drugs were too much.

Is anyone really surprised? Majority of the media and the world immediately called drug overdose when he died back in June. If MJ really thought that the mixture of drugs wouldn’t kill him, then that’s unfortunate. It is common sense to not mix that strong of drugs. It is really sad what people will do for money.

So sad. =( I feel most sorry for his children.

Michael definitely can’t be seen as innocent in this. He looked for doctors until he got what he wanted. With that said, I’m still heartbroken over his death.

The police didn’t care in 1993 that he was using those drugs, they found a boatload of them during the molestation investigation. They only care now because he’s dead. That was his choice to use those drugs and to not seek help when he knew he was addicted. He shopped around for Doctors and they being the greedy blood suckers that they are, didn’t care that what they were doing was unethical and illegal. They were too blinded by the money and his celebrity. Those of his family who tried to help him were barred from his residence, by his order. So now he’s dead because he cared more about drugs than he did about himself or his kids.

it only took like 2 months, but they finally figured it out
im so bored of mj news
ever since a week after his death i was done with it all, i just knew the news was gonna get more ridiculous

this is so horrible, i still cry about him
homicide!??
that doctor knew what he was doing, if i found a doctor that told me it was okay and i trusted him, i wouldn’t think too much about it either.
seriously if someone asked me to give them those drugs and i knew it could kill him, i would say no and leave.
it’s the doctor’s fault and michael was either very naive or didn’t care and i dont think he didn’t care

This dumbas s doctor is African. I would never trust some weirdo foreign doctor to adminster me drugs.

When will this son of a ***** be hanged? I’d like to know.

I hope he gets what is coming to him. I can’t blame MJ for asking for the drug, he was an addict and addicts will manipulate and plead to get the drugs they want, it was the doc’s responsibility to say NO. He could’ve helped Michael, who obviously needed help and guidance, but instead he chose to keep pumping him full of drugs. May MJ rest in peace….he was a good hearted man who didn’t deserve to die so young. I hope justice is served.

Mj we fans still miss you and love you forever.
