Sources say Dr Conrad Murray injected Jackson before death

Monday, July 27th, 2009

Michael Jackson’s personal physician administered a strong drug investigators think killed the U.S. pop star, a source told CNN Monday.

Dr. Conrad Murray

Dr. Conrad Murray, a doctor hired by the company that was producing a series of Jackson concerts, was at the Los Angeles home where Jackson was staying when he died June 25. Citing a source close to the Jackson family that it said had knowledge of the investigation, CNN reported authorities Murray administered the drug to Jackson before the singer died.

Law enforcement sources said Sunday paramedics found Jackson dead when they arrived at his home June 25. The sources said paramedics wanted to pronounce Jackson dead but Murray had him transported to a hospital, TMZ.com reported Sunday.

An autopsy indicated Jackson had the powerful drug Propofol in his system, E! News reported last week, although the official cause of death was still under investigation. The drug is administered intravenously and puts people in a near-comatose state.

Tito, Marlon, Jermaine and Jackie Jackson, the surviving members of Michael’s early group, the Jackson 5, are said to be in negotiations with AEG Live to take over some of the dates their late brother was scheduled to perform. No mention of Randy (on right) being part of the performance.

The O2 is the venue where Michael’s comeback concerts were to have taken place, starting last week. The iconic pop star had been rehearsing for a planned 50-date solo residency there when he died June 25. The cause of his death is under investigation.

Rumors and ‘news’ following MJ’s death seem to be free flowing, many of which contradict reality before MJ died, who knows what to believe:

For example, the brothers issued a statement in mid-May disputing a reported concert with MJ and Janet in Texas:

The Jacksons Deny Any Involvement With Planned Jackson 5 Reunion Show in Texas With Brother Michael & Sister Janet

Beverly Hills, CA, May 15, 2009 — In an official statement issued today The Jacksons (Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon and Randy Jackson) have denied they were in any way involved with a proposed Jackson 5 reunion concert in Texas on July 3rd claimed this week by New Jersey concert promoters AllGood Entertainment.

According to The Jackson’s manager, Danny O’Donovan, the original members of the Jackson 5, and younger brother, Randy, who later joined Michael and his older brothers performing as The Jacksons, were never approached about participating in the purported Texas concert event with Michael and sister, Janet.

The Jacksons have said they will support Michael in fighting any legal action brought by AllGood Entertainment with regard to the promoter’s claim about a July 3rd concert in Texas Stadium. O’Donovan said “There is absolutely no merit in this claim, and we had no knowledge of any contract with anyone, for a so-called family tour reunion. In fact, The Jacksons were never even approached about it and no offer was ever made to them.”

All of the Jackson brothers are thrilled that Michael is returning to the live stage this summer and are totally in support of his historic 50 concert run at London’s O2 Arena. They eagerly look forward to seeing and enjoying his “This Is It!” concert event.

Congressman Peter King (R-NY) says “stop the news coverage of low-life Michael Jackson”

Monday, July 6th, 2009


Peter King Republican Congressman of New York tells the media to stop covering “low-life” Michael Jackson and start talking about the sacrifices of average citizens like police officers, firefighters and teachers.

Rep. King makes some interesting points about media coverage & the glorification of celebrities, yes the the Buzz really said that, pretty open minded huh? considering this blog covers celebrities!

We agree that the contributions of everyday people like  teachers, soldiers, firefighters are extraordinary and should be celebrated, however, our agreement with  King stops there.

King is very narrow minded & short-sited in his commentary.  Consider this post from our partner Hip Hop Spy, “Our grief shows Michael’s star power transcends gender, culture, race, geography & age.”

The global reaction to Michael Jackson’s death shows Michael’s contributions united the real people “aka the firefighters, teachers, shop keepers” of our world, across cultures, races, generations and countries in a way no government can ever hope to do.
