    Dr. Murray's Police Interview
    What the Jury Hasn't Heard ...


    10/7/2011 4:53 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF



    The jury only heard half of Dr. Conrad Murray's dramatic 2-hour interview with police today -- in which Murray admitted he pumped Michael Jackson full of sedatives before he died -- and now, here's the other half ... you have to read it to believe it.

    Among the highlights ...

    -- Murray details an emotional encounter with Katherine Jackson just moments after she hears the news -- she asks him if he knows how Michael died. Murray says he doesn't.
    -- Murray claims Joe Jackson never showed up at the hospital the day MJ died.
    -- And ... Murray explains why security cameras caught him exiting the hospital at 4:30PM.

    The jury will hear the remainder of the recording when the trial resumes on Tuesday.

    Dr. Conrad Murray
    Massive Inconsistency In Murray's Story


    video platformvideo managementvideo solutionsvideo player

    Morning Express with Robin Meade correspondent and In Session Anchor Ryan Smith along with In Session correspondent Beth Karas say it's possible we could see the prosecution rest this week.

    As we enter week three (court was not in session yesterday for Columbus Day) we're expecting that the trial will pick right back up where it left off... with that fascinating interview police conducted with Dr. Conrad Murray just days after Michael Jackson died.

    Also coming up this week and maybe even as early as today, the medical examiner who conducted the autopsy on Michael Jackson could take the stand.

    An expert on "standard of care" is also on the witness list. He's an anesthesiologist and pharmacologist and he is the KEY WITNESS for the prosecution when it comes to the science... and we are moving into that phase of the prosecution's case. Expect to learn a lot about propofol, how the body metabolizes it, etc. Beth says, "It's going to get very technical, but it's important."

    Complete courtroom coverage of the Conrad Murray trial airs live on HLN from gavel to gavel. It’s also on In Session on truTV from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. ET every weekday.

    MJ's trainer: King of Pop was in "good shape," but couldn't sleep

    October 10, 2011



    Commentary by A.J. Hammer, host of HLN's "Showbiz Tonight"

    A lot of people know Lou Ferrigno as the body behind the original "Incredible Hulk." What you may not know: Ferrigno was a friend of Michael Jackson who was training him until two weeks before the pop superstar's death.

    I had the chance to sit down with Ferrigno and the thing that fascinated me the most was the way he described Jackson’s physical condition.

    Despite reports of a fragile and sickly Jackson in the weeks before his death Ferrigno told me Michael was in good health.

    Conrad's contradictions



    From In Session correspondent Beth Karas

    A long list of contradictions have emerged between what Dr. Conrad Murray said in his police statement to the L.A.P.D. and other evidence presented at the trial. Here's a look at some of the more important inconsistencies.

    What time did Murray find Jackson unresponsive?

    In the timeline Murray gives police, he found Jackson not breathing around 11 am. Cell phone records and the testimony of his ex-girlfriend Sade Anding indicate the time was closer to noon.

    What drugs did Murray administer to Jackson?

    In the interview, Dr. Murray admits to giving Jackson diazepam, lorazepam, midazolam, propofol, and flumazenil. However, Dr. Murray told ER doctors Richelle Cooper and Thao Nguyen, that he gave Jackson lorazepam—no mention of propofol. He also said that diazepam and flomax were Jackson’s regular medications. Furthermore, Dr. Murray told the paramedics that he gave him lorazepam–no mention of propofol.

    How long was Murray out of the room after giving Jackson propofol?

    In the police interview, Murray explains how he gave 25 mg of propofol, watched Jackson, then left for 2 minutes to go to the bathroom. When he returned, he found Jackson not breathing. Murray’s cell phone records and testimony from people who spoke to him that morning indicate he was probably out of the room for at least 45 minutes while he made three calls between 11:18 am and noon, the last being to his ex-girlfriend, Sade Anding. It seems that while on the phone with Anding he discovered an unresponsive Jackson around noon, perhaps a few minutes before that.

    Did Murray witness the cardiac arrest of Jackson?

    Dr. Murray tells police that he was out of the bedroom for such a short period, that he witnessed Jackson going into cardiac arrest. However, the timeline from the cell phone records suggests otherwise as does the testimony of Paramedic Senneff who said that Jackson was cool to the touch and that it didn’t comport with what Dr. Murray had told him. Senneff testified that Murray told him, “It just happened right when I called you.”

    Did Murray have a watch or not?

    Many times in the interview Murray says he looked at his watch. Emergency room doctor Thao Nguyen said on the stand that Murray couldn’t give her the times he administered the lorazepam or when 911 was called because he didn’t have a concept of time and didn’t have a watch.

    Whose idea was it to try the intra-aortic balloon pump?

    During the police interview, Murray says it was the emergency room doctor’s idea to try to the balloon pump. However, Dr. Nguyen testified that her attendant, Dr. Cruz, spoke to Murray and that Murray asked them not to give up easily; to try to save Jackson’s life. She testified there was nothing left to do after their efforts to resuscitate in the ER, but the balloon pump. Therefore, to show good faith, they tried to balloon pump even though they believed it would be futile. Dr. Nguyen said, “We made an agreement with Dr. Murray that this would be the last procedure.”

    Did Murray give Jackson an injection of propofol then a slow drip to keep him sedated?

    Dr. Murray told the L.A.P.D. that he gave 25 mg of propofol which he pushed slowly over 3-5 minutes. He also told detectives that the drug is fast-acting and that he set up a slow drip to keep Jackson sedated. Murray is expected to argue at trial that he did not set up the drip that night. The testimony of security guard Alberto Alvarez and coroner investigator Elissa Fleak regarding a 100 ml bottle of propofol inside a slit saline bag suggests that there was, indeed, a drip set up the day Jackson died. The State could argue that the crude IV drip malfunctioned and the bottle spilled into Jackson.

    Did Murray take all precautions available to him?

    Dr. Murray Murray told police he took all precautions available to him: oxygen and a pulse oximeter. ER doctors Cooper and Nguyen testified about the resuscitative equipment needed whenever a patient is given propofol. In addition, to needing far more equipment than Murray had in Jackson’s bedroom, constant monitoring at the patient’s side is an absolute requirement. The evidence suggests Dr. Murray left Jackson’s side for more than 45 minutes. More evidence is expected in the State’s case about the standard of care when using propofol.

    Did Murray pull the IV out of Jackson’s leg?

    Dr. Murray says that in the process of moving Jackson to the floor, the IV dislodged from his leg. Paramedic Richard Senneff said that Murray pulled it out.

    Did Murray do chest compressions all the way to the ambulance?

    In the L.A.P.D interview Murray says he continued CPR, epinephrine, atropine, chest compressions all the way into the ambulance. However, Paramedic Senneff testified resuscitative efforts did, indeed, continue all the way into the ambulance but Murray was still in the bedroom. When Senneff went back to the bedroom to get his equipment, he found Murray with a “deer in the headlight look” with a trash bag in his hands.

    Whose decision was it to do an autopsy?

    Dr. Murray told detectives that he recommended an autopsy, but Dr. Cooper testified that Jackson was her patient; she had a 50-year-old man who died. She didn’t know the cause of death so it was a coroner’s case, which means she referred the case to the coroner not Dr. Murray.

    Was Murray asked to sign the death certificate?

    Murray says in the police interview that the question was posed: “Well, is there a doctor who’s going to sign the death certificate?” He told police that he responded: “I wouldn’t want to sign the death certificate when I don’t know the cause of his death.” However, Dr. Cooper testified that she did not have a conversation with Murray about the death certificate and that it was her decision to refer to coroner for autopsy.

    Did Murray assemble the social worker team to deal with the children and other family members at UCLA Medical Center?

    Dr. Murray tells the police that he asked for a social worker team be brought in, but Dr. Cooper said that it was not Murray’s idea; that the social worker team was assembled earlier as part of UCLA protocol.

    Is it true that Jackson did not eat well?

    Dr. Murray says in the interview that Jackson did not eat well or drink much, but personal chef, Kai Chase, testified, Jackson liked natural juices (carrot/orange and beet/apple) and organic foods. He ate granola and almond milk for breakfast. Chase also testified that healthy eating was important to Jackson and his children.

    Michael Jackson 'took propofol every day for two months before death'

    Michael Jackson took propofol, the drug that killed him, every day for the two months before his death, a court has heard.



    Jurors were played a two-hour recording of Doctor Conrad Murray's interview with police detectives, conducted two days after Jackson's death, in which he explains his version of events leading up to the night he died.

    The never-before-heard interview, dated June 27, 2009, was one of the last major pieces of evidence prosecutors have to present against him during his manslaughter trial.

    Explaining that Jackson was "not able to sleep naturally", he tells police that he gave the singer the powerful anaesthetic while treating him for sleep problems.

    Murray, Jackson's personal physician, explains the detectives how he met Jackson and walks them through the treatments he gave the singer on the day he died, including doses of the sedatives lorazepam and Versed.

    During the interview he says that Jackson was taking propofol daily for two months, except for three days before Jackson's death in an attempt by Murray to try to wean the singer off the drug. In the hours leading up to his death, Jackson remained awake for hours after returning home around 1am on June 25, 2009 after rehearsals for a series of comeback concerts in London, Murray explains.

    It was 4 o'clock in the morning, and then he complained," Murray says. "'I've got to sleep Dr. Conrad. I have these rehearsals to perform.'" Jackson threatened to cancel that day's rehearsal, so Murray gave him some more lorazepam.
    When Jackson continues to complain about his lack of sleep, Murray relented to Jackson's demand for his "milk" – a nickname the doctor said the singer used for propofol, which is a milky-white liquid.
    At 11am, he said Jackson was asleep but not snoring. After returning from the bathroom, he found Jackson was not breathing. He felt his pulse and started administering CPR and mouth to mouth.
    Instead of calling the emergency services, he said he called Michael Amir Williams, Jackson's assistant. He then ran out downstairs and called on the chef to get security, who subsequently called 911. He said he did not call 911 as he did not know the postcode of Jackson's house.
    During the interview he says they tried for at least an hour to save him and insists that he took every precaution to ensure Jackson was safe.
    Prosecutors contend Murray, who has been charged with involuntary manslaughter, was reckless by giving Jackson propofol outside a hospital setting and without the proper monitoring equipment.
    Authorities claim Murray gave Jackson a lethal dose of propofol and other sedatives while trying to help the singer. Defence attorneys say Jackson gave himself the lethal dose after Murray left the room.
    Dr Murray has pleaded not guilty. The trial continues next week.

    Two opposing HLN reports!

    "Severe mistake" could doom Conrad's defense

    Posted: 11:58 AM ET

    As the Dr. Conrad Murray trial wraps its second week, it's beginning to look increasingly clear that an early error could doom his defense.

    Dr. Murray's attorneys made a bold move in their opening statements by telling the jury they would prove that Michael Jackson self-administered the lethal dose of propofol.
    It is generally considered bad form for the defense to make these kinds of promises in their opening and the problem is two-fold.

    First, they have locked themselves into a theory they may not be able to prove. One of the best examples of this is from the Scott Peterson case.
    In his opening statement at that trial, defense attorney Mark Geragos proposed that Peterson's unborn child might not have been killed with his pregnant wife Laci, but instead was born several weeks after Laci disappeared. Geragos never came close to proving that claim and the prosecution emphasized that point in their closing.

    I hope Dr. Murray's defense has more support for their proposition that MJ gave himself the propofol then the "unidentified" fingerprint which the prosecution ID'd Thursday as belonging to an investigator at the scene.

    For now, it seems they have made a severe mistake.

    The second reason the defense shouldn't lay promises like this out in openings is they lose the "Ah-ha!" moment.
    The lawyers have been living with the facts of this case for years. It is sometimes difficult to resist the urge to tell their version of the story at the first opportunity – opening statements. However, from a persuasion perspective, it is much more powerful to let the jury make their own discoveries as the evidence emerges in front of them.

    Imagine if the defense did have the evidence that Jackson gave himself the propofol. Then they let the prosecutors lay out this whole case about how administering propofol as done by Dr. Murray was negligent. Finally, in a moment of drama and gravitas, the prosecution case turns to shambles as their basic premise of Dr. Murray's administration of the killer drug is destroyed.
    As it stands, Murray's livelihood and future is dependent on his lawyer's promise.
    For his sake, I hope they can fulfill it.

    Conrad police interview may backfire for prosecutors. Here's why.
    Posted: 01:59 PM ET

    We can still only speculate on how the audio of Dr. Conrad Murray being interviewed by police will ultimately impact the jurors. But, one thing is for sure: it definitely will cause them to begin formulating new opinions and impressions of Dr. Murray
    And they may not be the kind of opinions prosecutors were hoping for Friday when they rolled out this significant piece of evidence.

    During the interview, Dr. Murray is heard sounding calm, methodical and well-prepared in his responses. In fact, he is even slightly defensive or protective of himself when describing why the drug propofol was even being utilized and how it was administered. Clearly, this shows a guy who knew there likely would be very serious consequences for Michael's death and he wanted to make sure they did not fall on him.

    Dr. Murray can be heard trying to justify the use of propofol as something Michael insisted on and was very familiar with and accustomed to administering himself.
    Sounds beneficial for the defense, but jurors may ask themselves, "Should the patient be dictating to the physician the best course of treatment?" And is this even the truth or is this just Dr. Murray being a "spin doctor" and trying to manipulate the facts into a more favorable story for himself?

    Still, there remains ample reason to think playing the tapes might actually help Dr. Murray's defense.
    For two weeks he has sat there as the accused, the condemned, the 'evil doctor' who couldn't do anything right. But now he tells his story in open court. Most importantly, he gets to do so and is not subject to cross-examination by the prosecution!
    That is extremely beneficial if the jury accepts his taped words as truth.

    The other benefit of the taped evidence is that for the first time, Dr. Murray is humanized as he is heard talking in a soft, calm and compassionate tone. The jurors hear his voice in full conversation mode and they listen to his first-hand detailed explanation of the frantic scene that played out in the bedroom as he frantically tried to save Michael Jackson.
    Again, this could also be beneficial, though only if jurors believed what they heard.

    The police interrogation tapes will continue to be played in court on Tuesday.

    What Jackson Doctor Did Not Tell Detectives
    The scenario Conrad Murray provided detectives omitted things that have been described by other witnessesBy Patrick Healy | Monday, Oct 10, 2011 | Updated 10:21 AM

    The more than two-hour long interview involving LAPD detectives and Dr. Conrad Murray is getting much attention now that most of it has been played at his trial. What is perhaps more significant to the outcome than what Murray said, is what he did not say.
    It is perhaps not surprising that Murray's account is largely self-serving, describing his efforts to help his megastar patient Michael Jackson, whom Murray tells investigators he considered his "friend." During the interview, Murray recounted his concerns about the medications he was giving Jackson, the precautions he took to avoid over-medicating, and the desperate efforts he made to resuscitate Jackson.

    The police interrogation is noticeably lacking in hard questions. That is no fault of detectives Scott Smith and Orlando Martinez. When Murray's attorneys offered the interview at a Marina del Rey hotel, it had been only two days since Jackson's death and weeks before the coroner identified an overdose of the surgical sedative propofol as the principal cause of death.

    But Murray left out events that his jurors have now heard described by witnesses under oath. You can be sure prosecutors will pounce on this in closing arguments.

    Perhaps most glaring is Murray's omission of the 46 minutes his cell phone was in use during the hour before he discovered Jackson not breathing. In fact, the prosecution has presented evidence Murray was actually in a phone conversation with one of his mistresses at the moment of the shocking realization.

    Sade Anding testified that about five minutes into their conversation, Murray abruptly dropped off the call. That would have been about 11:56 a.m. on the morning of June 25, 2009. Chef Kai Chase testified that it was 12:05 to 12:10 p.m. when Murray came down the stairs asking her to get help.
    Yet, Murray made no mention to detectives of any cell phone calls. In his account, Murray described administering 25 mg of propofol to Jackson in a three-minute infusion about 10:45 a.m., then watching him for 15 minutes or more to make sure Jackson was safely asleep and the effects of the propofol had worn off.

    Murray said he left Jackson's bedside only long enough to go to the bathroom and was away no more than "two minutes" when he returned to find Jackson not breathing.
    It will be difficult for the defense to argue that Murray was in the room monitoring Jackson during those phone calls, as if Murray -- having been up all night with Jackson, and after nine-plus hours having finally gotten him to sleep -- would risk waking him up again by talking on the phone.

    Murray's second major omission -- at least, compared to other testimony -- is his failure to mention the improvised arrangement for Jackson to receive a continuous intravenous drip of propofol. Alberto Alvarez testified that when summoned to Jackson's bedroom, he saw an IV bag with a vial of medication inside and upside down so it would drain out.

    Coroner's investigator Elissa Fleak later described finding an IV saline bag with a nearly empty 100ml vial of propofol. Such a vial contains a 1,000mg of propofol, implying that Jackson received a dose that was 40 times as large as Murray said, and also infused continuously, thereby requiring continuous monitoring.
    This explains the determined cross-examination of Fleak by Murray defense attorney Ed Chernoff, trying to undercut Fleak's credibility and persuade jurors she may have been wrong about finding the propofol vial inside the IV bag.

    The third significant Murray omission also is in comparison with the Alvarez testimony. Alvarez told jurors that after entering Jackson's bedroom, Murray had him hold open a bag for the doctor to fill with vials of medication and other medical items from Jackson's room, and then to put that bag into another.

    The conclusion the prosecution wants jurors to reach is that Murray was trying to hide evidence and cover-up. The prosecution can point to his interview with police. In it, Murray made no mention of having Alvarez help him collect items from the room before paramedics arrived.

    A number of attorneys following the case have opined that Chernoff made a major mistake allowing Murray to talk with detectives, providing a narrative for the prosecution to pick apart.
    But others see benefits for the Murray defense.
    "They're loving this tape, because it's humanizing Dr. Murray," said Dermott Givens, a defense attorney not involved in the case, but following it as an analyst for NBCLA.
    Givens said the recording provides a counterpoint to what jurors had heard up to this point.
    "They've heard just like all of us about how Dr. Murray is this quack doctor who's just out for the money. And now they're hearing the other side of that: that this is a doctor who cared about his patient and had a good relationship with his patient up to the time of death," Givens said.

    Givens also noted that Murray provided foundation for the defense scenario that while Murray was out of the room, Jackson gave himself the dose that proved fatal. Murray told detectives that Jackson once asked him if he himself could push the plunger of the syringe to self-administer the propofol. Murray recalled Jackson telling him other doctors let him do that.
    Murray said he told Jackson, "No."

    Perhaps best of all for the defense, the recording enables Murray to put forth his scenario without exposing himself to cross-examination.

    As now scheduled, the rest of the interview will be played in court when trial resumes on Day 10 Tuesday. The already released transcript reveals minimal issues of controversy in the final, yet-to-be-played portion. If nothing else, it reinforces the defense's position that Murray was a caring doctor.

    The jury will hear Murray recall speaking with Jackson's children at the UCLA Medical Center after their father was pronounced. In Murray's telling, not only was he trying to comfort the children. They were also trying to comfort him.
    Murray recalled Jackson's daughter Paris telling him, "I know you tried your best."

    M.J. Trial Week End Review: Week 2 "Got Milk?"
    Posted: 10/10/11 02:35 PM ET

    Week two of the People vs. Dr. Conrad Murray Hollywood trial introduced the world to a new cast of characters. The witnesses were made for great TV. They were colorful, brilliant, arrogant, frustrated, pretty and aloof. Week two of the Michael Jackson manslaughter trial was reality TV worth watching.


    Dr. Conrad Murray, 58, a cardiologist and Michael Jackson's personal doctor, is on trial for involuntary manslaughter. Prosecutors say he criminally breached medical standards and "repeatedly acted with gross negligence" by giving Michael Jackson a fatal dose of the surgical anesthetic propofol for insomnia, causing "acute propofol intoxication." Los Angeles County coroners office also determined that Lorazepam contributed to Michael Jackson's sudden death on June 25, 2009.

    In The Courtroom

    Week one's testimony outlined Dr. Murray's actions after he realized his patient was not breathing, and the testimony continued to shine light on the doctor's actions up until the time that he arrived at UCLA hospital with Michael. Week one ended with paramedic, Richard Senneff testifying that Michael Jackson could have been saved, but for the fact that Dr. Murray gave him false information when he arrived at the scene.

    Week two's testimony picked up where week one left off, in the emergency room. Two emergency room doctors, Dr. Richelle Cooper and Dr. Thao Nguyen detailed Michael Jackson's emergency room care, their interactions with Dr. Murray and the final pronouncement of the King of Pop's death. The prosecution then shifted the jurors' attention to Dr. Murray's actions before he realized his patient had stopped breathing. They tunneled in on where Dr. Murray was and for how long he was away from Michael Jackson. The end of week two's testimony focused on the investigation of the crime scene and the toxicology results stemming from the evidence secured from the scene. The most powerful prosecution's presentation of week two came from the complete audio rendering of Michael Jackson's drugged-induced conversation with Dr. Murray. To close out the week, the prosecution played a portion of Dr. Murray's recorded statement to the police given two days after Michael Jackson's death. The jurors were dismissed for a long holiday weekend with the words of Dr. Conrad Murray ringing in their ears.

    From week two's testimony we learned that upon the paramedics' arrival at Michael Jackson's home, they found no pulse and no signs of life at 12:27 p.m. After trying to resuscitate Michael for the procedurally required 20 minutes without any change in his condition, they contacted Dr. Cooper, who was in charge of the UCLA emergency room. Based on the provided information, Dr. Cooper wanted to pronounce Michael Jackson dead "in the field" at 12:57 p.m. However, Dr. Murray pleaded for Dr. Cooper to delay the pronouncement of death and agreed that he would travel in the ambulance with Michael Jackson and lead all resuscitation efforts. The ambulance arrived at the hospital at 1:13 p.m. The emergency room staff and other specialist gave Michael Jackson "VIP" treatment in a desperate effort to bring him back to life. Dr. Cooper testified that Michael was clinically dead at 12:57 p.m. and therefore, he was dead when he became her patient. Finally, at 2:26 p.m., Michael Jackson was pronounced dead. Dr. Cooper testified that she attempted to comfort Michael Jackson's "fairly hysterical" children in the waiting room with little success.

    The testimony of the brilliant E.R. doctor Thao Nguyen, who detailed a frantic, yet evasive Dr. Murray, was captivating. Her entrance to the witness stand, in an Issey Miyake-ish outfit caused a corporal gasp within the courtroom. She did not look like a typical doctor. Yet, her fabulous fashionista sense paled in comparison to her genius. She was unfazed by the defenses aggressive cross-examination and shared her concerns about Dr. Murray's inability to give a timeline relating to the sequence of events at the crime scene. Dr. Cooper and Dr. Nguyen both testified that Dr. Murray did not state that he had given Michael Jackson propofol. He stated that he had only given him Larazapam as a sleep aide.

    Next, the prosecution provided witnesses' testimony suggesting that Dr. Murray was away from his patent for at least 45 minutes managing his private practice business, sending detailed emails regarding Michael Jackson's health to insurance companies, and engaging in personal phone calls. The prosecution called to the stand three women who communicated with Dr. Murray on June 25, 2009. Each of the women, all former strippers/exotic dancers, who met Dr. Murray in a gentlemen's club atmosphere, thought that she was Dr. Murray's girlfriend on June 25, 2009. Ms. Nicole Alverez, 29, an aspiring actress and the mother of Dr. Murray's two year old son, was living with him on June 25, 2009 and continues to do so at this time. The women were called as prosecution witnesses because their phone numbers were retrieved from one of Dr. Murray's two cell phones. Ms. Sade Anding was on the phone with Dr. Murray when the prosecution believes that Dr. Murray returned to his post to find a non-breathing Michael Jackson. A very well spoken and likeable, Ms. Anding, testified that she was speaking with Dr. Murray and then realized that he was not responding to her statements. She testified that she then put the phone closer to her ear and could hear noises. She said that it sounded like coughing in the background , although on cross-examination, she testified that she could not decipher anything she heard. After about six minutes of being ignored, Ms. Anding hung up the phone. Based on phone records and consistent with Ms. Anding's testimony, Dr. Murray retuned to Michael Jackson's bedroom at approximately, 11:50 a.m.

    Week two's most dramatic and surreal moment came upon the hearing of the audio of an intoxicated and slurring Michael Jackson, recorded on Dr. Murray's iPhone, on Sunday, May 10, 2011 at approximately 9:00 a.m. Very wisely, many of the Jackson family members opted not to attend that day in court. I would have been distraught to hear my loved one share his deepest desires with a man that I believe killed him. Despite the fact that Dr. Murray deleted this recording, as well as, several emails recently moved into evidence, experts were able to easily retrieve the data. (Mental note to myself -- never use an iPhone for unscrupulous matters.) On the emotional audio, Michael shared his dream to build a hospital for one million children. He said, "God wants me to do it." Michael continued, "I'm gonna do that for them. That will be remembered more than my performances. My performances will be up there helping my children and always be my dream. I love them. I love them because I didn't have a childhood. I had no childhood. I feel their pain. I feel their hurt. I can deal with it. Heal The World, We Are The World, Will You Be There, The Lost Children. These are songs I've written because I hurt, you know, I hurt." The jurors were noticeably moved by this recording. Who wouldn't be? The King of Pop confessed, "I hurt." Often times in a manslaughter case, the testimony becomes so medical, scientific and forensic that the dead victim is forgotten. With the playing of this tape, the prosecution brought Michael Jackson back in to the courtroom and to the forefront of the jurors' minds.

    Friday afternoon, the prosecution began to introduce into evidence Dr. Murray's two hour statement to the police. His attorney, Ed Chernoff was present during the statement. Mr. Chernoff has been powerful in his cross-examinations up to his point, but I don't know why he allowed his client to give a statement to the police. In the portion presented to the jurors thus far, Dr. Murray stated "What I was recognizing was (Michael Jackson) might have had a dependency to a substance." He added "I was trying to wean him off." Dr. Murray told the police that he tried numerous methods to put Michael to sleep on the morning of June 25, 2009 but nothing seemed to work. After 10 a.m., Jackson told Murray, "Please give me some milk so I can sleep because I know that's all that works for me." Milk is Michael Jackson's nickname for the creamy white Propofol. Rebbie Jackson became so emotional upon hearing Dr. Murray's statements that she left the courtroom. In her haste, she walked into the galley near the jurors, and this resulted in a strong admonition from Judge Pastor. With about 75 percent of Dr. Murray's statement played, the court recessed until after the Columbus holiday break.

    I have always wondered if Michael Jackson was watching television that fateful morning of June 25, 2009 and learned that Farrah Fawcett died at approximately 9:30 a.m. PCT. If Dr. Murray's testimony is true, Michael was spared the sadness of learning that Farrah Fawcett lost her long fault battle with cancer.

    Outside The Courtroom
    The scene outside of the courtroom during week two hasn't changed much from week one. There are still the Michael Jackson fans sitting on the hard benches and floor watching the trial on their iPads and Smartphones because they could not gain entry into the courtroom via the lottery process. I love when I have time between my on-air Trial Analyst position for Los Angeles' KTLA News, to run from the 12th floor media room to the 9th floor and speak with true Michael Jackson fans. Fans who have told me that they will be at the courthouse everyday of the trial. Fans who have traveled from other countries and other states. Fans who have quit their jobs so they could "camp out" in Los Angeles to support the Jackson family. Yes, real fans are the people with whom I love to spend my free time -- I find them fascinating.

    I was recently reminded that Merriam-Webster, the Oxford dictionary and other recognized sources define the word fan as a shortened version of the word fanatic. And Fanatic itself, means "marked by excessive enthusiasm and often intense uncritical devotion." Well, I had to pleasure to interview a Michael Jackson fanatic -- and if there was a term to describe an even greater level of devotion, Sharon Sydney would be just that. Sharon, a devout Bible reader, is different from most Michael Jackson fans who are still mourning his death because she is convinced that Michael Jackson is alive. Despite the fact that Sharon has attended everyday of this trial; has seen Michael Jackson's grey motionless body on the gurney; has heard the witnesses state that Michael Jackson's daughter Paris screamed "Daddy" as she kneeled next to her dead father's body; has heard the emergency room doctors testify about the hour of useless and unsuccessful resuscitative attempts; has heard the toxicologist testify as to what drugs where found in Michael Jackson's body during the autopsy; she still believes that Michael Jackson is alive. In great detail, Sharon explained to me why and how Michael Jackson was kidnapped from his home. She is convinced that Michael Jackson is being held hostage - and get this: she believes that Michael Jackson is being forced to record hits. Sharon offered evidence that she believes proves that Michael Jackson, is in fact, finishing all the music that music executives have recently released as studio enhanced songs of Michael Jackson's unfinished material found in his catalog.

    Sharon Sydney is a fan that met Michael Jackson in Gary Indiana in 2004. She was honored to give a speech at an event where Michael Jackson received the keys to the city. Sharon said that the "Holy Spirit" guided her to her "relationship with Michael Jackson." She claims that she "knows" Michael and has had numerous telephone conversations with him. Ms. Sydney is reluctant to go into detail about their relationship but she assures me that she and Michael Jackson were friends. Sharon opened up and said, "God showed me that people were coming to take his life." Upon that revelation, she left her home and job in Texas and relocated to California to be with Michael. Everyday, Sharon attended Michael Jackson's child molestation trial in 2005 , and it was there that she befriended Mrs. Katherine Jackson and Joe Jackson.

    Sharon always managed to create time in her Los Angeles employment schedule to, as she stated, "check on Michael." She has been to Michael Jackson's home, Carolwood , dozens of times. Sharon was one of the fans, as testified by Kenny Ortega, who attended many rehearsals for This Is It, at all three venues. What intrigued me most about Sharon Sydney's story is the fact that she was at Carolwood on June 25, 2011, the day Michael Jackson died. One the evening of June 24th, she was at the rehearsal venue, Staples Center, and beat Michael Jackson's car back to his home. In fact on June 24th she was able to give Michael Jackson's security personnel letters and gifts from some of his fans; her friends. She and other fans camped out all night, as they had done on numerous occasions. But Sharon said she knew something was wrong. She says, there were strange cars at Michael Jackson's mansion on the night of June 24th. She felt that something covert was taking place.

    Ms. Sydney was at the gate of Carolwood on June 25, 2009 when the ambulance arrived. She watched it leave and then followed it to the hospital. Sharon claims that it was she, who notified Joe Jackson that someone was being taken from Michael Jackson home in an ambulance. She tried to call Mrs. Jackson but was unable to get through. When she learned at the hospital that it was purportedly Michael Jackson being rushed in, she called and spoke with Joe again. Sharon tells of her attempts to get Michael Jackson's security personnel at the hospital to speak to Joe Jackson on the phone, but they yelled at her and threatened to have her arrested. She tells of how, at the hospital, she spoke with paramedic Blount, and how they both agreed that the person that was wheeled into the hospital was not Michael Jackson. Sharon is adamant that the patient wheeled into the emergency room was much shorter than Michael. She was very upset that paramedic Blount told a completely different story when he testified for the prosecution and detailed how he and his partner handled Michael's resuscitation efforts at Carolwood.

    As I shared Ms. Sydney's kidnapping theory with my eight and seven-year-old daughters, they could not hold back their chuckles. Tryumph and Whizdom became huge fans of Michael Jackson after his death and after watching This Is It four times. My eight year old said, "we all want Michael Jackson to be alive but the truth is -- he's dead, Mom." I couldn't have said it any better.

    On The Streets
    On the streets outside of the courthouse there are still a handful of Michael Jackson fans who come to see the Jackson family arrive and shout out their words of support. There are wanna-be stars who come in the hopes that Jane Valez-Mitchell will interview them on live TV, and thus launch their movie star careers. There are a couple of Dr. Murray supporters, but most often you only see one women, Beatrice Fakhrian. She is a friend and fellow parishioner at Dr. Murray's Los Angeles church. She has been on the streets declaring Dr. Murray's innocence since the trial began. Ms. Fakhrian, a Beverly Hills entertainment executive, holds two signs but has a couple extra signs to give to anyone who is wiling to stand behind the yellow plastic divider that is designated for Dr. Conrad Murray's supporters.

    Friday of week two, on the street, had me in stitches. As I walked up the stairs from my 8 a.m. "hit" on KTLA, I saw a sign where Michael Jackson's supporters stand that read "Got Milk." My twisted mind thought that someone creative was "referring to propofol." When I was close enough to read the entire sign, I realized that Michael Jackson's supporters had been joined, behind their yellow plastic divider, by a group supporting their friends who were charged with a felony for illegally selling unpasteurized milk, also known as Raw Milk. This group was boisterous and excited to tell me why raw milk is much healthier than the "stuff" we buy in the stores. This group of supporters far outnumbered Michael Jackson's supporters that day but in my mind, they were all standing behind the yellow plastic divider in passionate unison telling about the harms of "Milk."

    What to expect this week in the MJ manslaughter trial


    Posted: 12:15 PM ET
    October 10, 2011

    After a break for the Columbus Day holiday, Dr. Conrad Murray’s manslaughter trial will resume on Tuesday at 11:45 ET/8:45 PT, when the rest of Dr. Murray’s audio-taped statement to police will be played for the jury. There is an estimated 45 minutes of audio left.

    Some of the key moments yet to be heard by jurors:

    –Dr. Murray tells detectives that Joe Jackson never showed up at the hospital with the rest of grieving Jacksons the day MJ died.

    –Dr. Murray says that he met with Katherine Jackson moments after she heard MJ had died. He says he told her that he didn’t know what killed him.


    –Dr. Murray explains why security cameras caught him leaving the hospital at 4:30PM on the day Jackson died.

    Dr. Christopher Rogers, the pathologist who performed Michael Jackson’s autopsy, is expected to testify on Tuesday. Dr. Rogers is likely to address crucial questions regarding the cause of death and manner of death. In the coroner’s report, Dr. Rogers ruled that the cause of death was acute propofol intoxication and the manner of death was homicide.

    Later this week the state is also expected to call to the stand an anesthesiologist who will list all of the standards Murray violated when he injected MJ with propofol. During cross-examinations of these witnesses, expect the defense is expected to push their theory that there was too much lorazepam and propofol in Jackson’s stomach to have been administered by I.V.

    The state could rest by the end of the week. The defense is expected to present its case over a few days, then the prosecution is expected to present a rebuttal case which could include a pharmacologist or drug expert who could testify about metabolism and rate of absorption.

    Click here for the full transcript of the interview LAPD Detectives conducted with Dr. Conrad Murray two days after Michael Jackson died. You can read the part of the interview the jury hasn't heard yet.

    Complete courtroom coverage of the Conrad Murray trial airs live on HLN from gavel to gavel. It’s also on In Session on truTV from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. ET every weekday.
