Murray: 'I Didn't Kill Jackson'

MICHAEL JACKSON's personal medic DR. CONRAD MURRAY has spoken out for the first time since the singer's death - and insists: "I did not kill him."
The singer was under the care of Dr Murray at the time of his death on 25 June (09), and police immediately questioned the medic about the events leading up to the singer's passing.
He was interviewed again two days later but has since reportedly fled California, refusing to talk to cops for a third time earlier this week (begs13Jul09).
Now he's spoken out to publicly address rumours of his involvement in Jackson's untimely passing, claiming he is a "scapegoat" for the tragedy.
And amid reports Jackson was on a cocktail of drugs prior to his death, Dr Murray insists he did not administer any substance to the King of Pop that would have killed him.
Dr Murray tells Britain's Sunday People, "I have lost a good friend. I did not give Michael anything that should have led to his death. I do not know anything more than anyone else about what killed Michael - but it wasn't me.
"It's human nature to try and find a scapegoat but if I was the focus of a criminal probe I would have been told by now. I have been told nothing even though I have been co-operating with the police since day one."
The doctor is also under constant 24 hour protection in the wake of Jackson's death, fearing he will be targeted by the singer's fans who see him as responsible.
A source tells Britain's News of the World, "Dr Murray did all he could to resuscitate Michael. He is in a terrible situation.
"Anyone who was there when Michael died would face similar anger from his fans because they feel he should have done more to save him. He is being given round-the-clock protection from the security team who looked after Michael."

DR. Klein seems kinda creepy and nuts if he thinks the Jackson family will allow him to take Michael's kids. What a sleazy piece of work to voluntarily show up on Larry King a few days after MJ died to 'clear' himself of any wrongdoing with his storiesabout being Mr. Jackson's friend! He also portrayed himself as unethical(surprise, surprise) to talk about Michael's health history. Has he no understanding of the HIPPA regulations for patient privacy? HOw do you spell QUACK? A father is a man who involves himself daily with the lives of his kids. Mr.Klein is no father to these kids because Michael Jackson has been the one in their lives and made his wishes known to his family in the event he needed their assistance. These children deserve to stay with the Jackson family and have contact with their mother. She, after all was married to Michael for two years and was involved with the children she bore for him for a period of time. Of course, not knowing the details of her 'real' interest, I can't claim she should have custodial rights, but certainly some visitation, if the children are agreeable. And the thought of A.Klein trying to get the two older children and seperating the youngest from them is not even thinkable. No judge will allow this. I certainly hope that surrogate mother stays out of all this mess. Mr. Klein is probably one of MJ's enablers.

debbie rowe should and i believe WILL get custody of her children. they need to be removed from the greedy clutches of the jackson family and particularly from the influence and manipulation of joe jackson before further injury is done to them. ms. rowe has been libeled and slandered repeatedly. her huge "crime" to date was to receive SPOUSAL SUPPORT as part of her divorce settlement which is customary and totally within the law. as of friday she has filed a lawsuit against one of the main perpetrators of the libelous and slanderous statements spread against her and i would anticipate many more lawsuits to be filed on her behalf in the near future.she is those children's biological mother and her parental rights are intact so custody legally belongs to her as the surviving parent. the jackson family's unwillingness and inability to protect children PARTICULARLY MICHAEL from abuse by joe jackson is both legendary and well documented.joe set himself up as the family spokesman within hours of michael's death and has made it abundantly clear that he fully intends to be involved in the "care" and exploitation of those children should they remain in the custody of the jackson family. katherine jackson remains joe jackson's most avid supporter and the one person who most enabled the abuse of her own children at his hands. her recent statements of support for joe should sound the alarm for anyone truly concerned with the welfare of those children.joe jackson should not be allowed within five miles of ANY vulnerable child!
