Michael Jackson’s Cause of Death Confirmed By LA Coroner As Homicide
Just one day before the King of Pop Michael Jackson’s birthday (August 29), on Friday, August 28th, 2009, the Los Angeles County Coroner has officially announced that Michael Jackson death has been ruled a homicide (died at the hands of another) due to acute propofol intoxication, as well as from a combination of other drugs which may have caused his death.
According to the coroner, the drugs propofol and lorazepam were the main drugs which were responsible for Michael Jackson’s death although other drugs midazolam, diazepam, lidocaine and ephedrine were also present.
Previously, Dr. Conrad Murray is stated to have admitted that he gave Michael Jackson, 50, intravenous anesthetic propofol to help him sleep hours before he died on June 25th. Dr. Conrad reportedly had been giving Michael Jackson propofol over a period of six weeks and was attempting to ween the singer off the drugs due to signs of possible addition, however, he gave Michael Jackson propofol on the day of his death after administering several drugs hours prior, due to Michael Jackson allegedly wanting more sleep aid than he had already been provided.
Meanwhile, as reports state that Dr. Conrad Murray will be charged with manslaughter for the death of Michael Joseph Jackson, the Los Angeles County District Attorney office has alledgely denied such charges against him.
As the complete toxicology report remains on “Security Hold” it is being stated that Michael Jackson’s friend and dermatologist Arnold Klein is being investigated and is possibly a source in providing Michael Jackson drugs to help contribute to his drug dependency and abuse.
