Jackson Doctor 'Fell Asleep' After Giving Him Sedative

MICHAEL JACKSON died when his personal physician DR. CONRAD MURRAY fell asleep after giving the star a powerful sedative, according to the superstar's mother, KATHERINE.
Murray is under investigation for manslaughter as police delve deeper into the mystery surrounding the pop superstar's tragic death.
On Wednesday (23Jul09) his offices in Houston, Texas were raided by police officers to seize all documents relating to his treatment of Jackson, including medical notes, details of any drugs he was taking, and records of prescriptions he handed out to the star.
The late King of Pop, who died of a cardiac arrest on 25 June (09), may have been left to die when Murray fell asleep after he pumped the singer with the anaesthetic Propofol, which is central to his death enquiry.
According to British newspaper The Sun, Jackson's plastic surgeon and former medic, Dr Steven Hoefflin, who treated the star up until 2002, has made the claims on Katherine's behalf.
The Jackson matriarch insists her son was drug-free three months before his death, but he was so scared about his scheduled 50-date comeback tour at London's O2 Arena that he turned to medics, who gave him a number of narcotics.
Hoefflin has viewed documents that reportedly list the drugs the star had taken, and claims Murray gave Jackson Propofol via an intravenous drip every night.
The close family friend says, "Michael was incredibly desperate to get to sleep. I believe the physician Dr Conrad Murray was hired by Michael with the sole purpose of giving him Propofol at bedtime. Michael referred to that drug by the name Milk, as it looks milky. I have been told this by the family and, if you know anything about the drug - which should not be administered by anyone other than a trained anaesthesiologist and in a clinical setting - this is insane and dangerous.
"My opinion is Dr Murray could have fallen asleep on the night Michael died while the IV drip administering Propofol was in Michael's arm."

more than likely it is a boldfaced lie. if the doctors were real drs they would consult the pda.to not care for a patient, knowing causality that is clearly set forth in the pda, in without excuse,sounds like the dr either did what he wanted to do,aka AN ENABLER, or was himself taking.it happened on his watch!!!!
