Michael Jackson - Dr Conrad Murray Claims Questioned By Veteran Paramedic

Dr Conrad Murray told the first paramedic to reach Michael Jackson 's bedroom that he was treating the singer for exhaustion and dehydration and that he had only administered one drug. The testimony contradicts the theory suggesting Murray accidently killed the singer with a dose of the powerful drug Propofol, reports the Associated Press.
Speaking in court on Friday (30th September 2011), Paramedic Richard Senneff says at the scene of Jackson's death, Dr Murray told him he had only given the singer the sedative lorazepam as he was suffering from exhaustion and dehydration. He was initially told by Murray that Jackson wasn't suffering from any condition, but later claimed he was treating him for exhaustion and dehydration. However, Mr Senneff says the doctor's responses to his questions didn't add up. The veteran paramedic said the singer was cool to the touch, with his eyes wide open and an IV in his leg. Senneff was one of four paramedics who unsuccessfully tried to revive the singer in June 2009. 58-year-old Murray has pleaded not guilty to involuntarily manslaughter. On Thursday, the jury heard how Jackson's eldest children were horrified after seeing their father dying on his bedroom floor. Questions have also been raised concerning the amount of time it took Dr Murray to phone the ambulance.
Bookmaker Paddy Power is offering odds as to the outcome of the high profile trial. It's odds on at 4/6 that Dr Murray will be found "not guilty" of the offense, while those who think he'll be sent to prison can have 11/10.

Just goes to show you that greed is an ugly and costly thing..all greed is eventually rewarded with grief, and that son of a bitch should never close his eyes without seeing the tragedy he witnessed that day. How can a doctor perform open heart surgery when he couldn't perform cpr?
