What drugs were in Michael Jackson’s system at the time of his death?
The L.A. coroner’s pending toxicology report – expected to answer that key question any day now – may hold the fate of Dr. Conrad Murray, the singer’s personal physician. Murray was with Jackson on the day he died and is the apparent focus of a manslaughter investigation.
According to Los Angeles County Department of Coroner Chief Investigator Craig Harvey, the long-awaited autopsy report will be released within days. “We anticipate releasing it this week,” Harvey said July 27. “We still have details to work out.”
Miranda Sevcik, spokesperson for Murray’s attorney Ed Chernoff, says they’re “in the dark” as to whether an arrest of Murray is imminent, even as news reports increasingly point to potentially serious trouble for the Houston-based physician.
On Monday, CNN and the Associated Press reported investigators believe Murray was the person who injected Jackson with the powerful anesthesia Propofol the night before the entertainer died. Jackson regularly used the drug to help him sleep, according to media reports.
