Lester: 'Coroner's Findings Are Absolutely Horrendous'

The details of the drugs MICHAEL JACKSON took in a desperate effort to get to sleep on the night before his death are "absolutely horrendous," according to the tragic singer's close friend MARK LESTER.
An unsealed search warrant affidavit, obtained by the Los Angeles Times in Texas, lists the timeline of events throughout the morning of 25 June (09) - the day Jackson died.
In the documents, the King of Pop's personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, reveals he gave Jackson Valium at 1.30am on the morning of his death and when that failed to relax the pop star, he injected Lorazepam intravenously at 2am and administered Midazolam an hour later. He gave him 25 milligrams of Propofol at 10.40am.
Jackson reportedly died minutes later after suffering a cardiac arrest.
Former child star Lester, who recently hit the headlines with claims he donated sperm to Jackson and now believes the singer's daughter Paris is his biological offspring, insists his friend didn't need such a cocktail of anaesthetics and sedatives and his doctor should have known better.
Talking to U.S. news network MSNBC on Monday (24Aug09), Lester said, "I was very close to Michael... and I knew there was absolutely nothing wrong with Michael... I just find it absolutely horrendous.
"Questions obviously have to be asked - why would he (Dr. Murray) use these kinds of medications? It is just ridiculous when maybe a couple of sleeping tablets would have done the trick... This is like using a sledgehammer to crack a walnut.
"I know that Michael had problems with sleeping from time to time but I was never aware of his use of medication whatsoever."
Reports suggest the Los Angeles Coroner will rule Jackson's death a homicide, suggesting someone else was responsible for the tragedy.
A statement from the Jackson family, shortly after the unsealed affidavit details were released on Monday (24Aug09), reads, "The Jackson family has full confidence in the legal process, and commends the ongoing efforts of the L.A. County Coroner, the L.A. District Attorney and the L.A. Police Department. The family looks forward to the day that justice can be served."
