Murray's Lawyer Slams Bodyguard's Claims

A lawyer for DR. CONRAD MURRAY has blasted a leaked witness statement from one of MICHAEL JACKSON's employees which alleges the medic stopped efforts to revive the star and hid drug vials at the scene - calling the claims "inconsistent".
The King of Pop suffered a fatal cardiac arrest last June (09) and his personal physician is accused of administering the powerful anaesthetic Propofol, which led to the singer's death. Murray has pleaded not guilty to one count of involuntary manslaughter.
A leaked statement from security guard Alberto Alvarez, which is said to have been taken two months after Jackson's demise, alleges Murray stopped administering CPR on the star and told the bodyguard to hide various drug vials before calling paramedics.
But a statement from Murray's lawyer, Ed Chernoff, has dismissed the allegations and urged the public to "reserve judgement" until the physician is put on trial.
It reads, "This statement was given more than two months after Michael Jackson's death and is inconsistent with a statement he (Alvarez) gave the police the day after Mr. Jackson was taken to the hospital.
"Further, his statement does not match up with much of the physical evidence found at the scene. We will not be trying this case in the press. We would ask the public to reserve judgment until after the people's witnesses are placed under oath and subjected to the rigours of cross-examination. We are confident that a fair trial will ferret out the truth."

"We are confident that a fair trial will ferret out the truth."Why don't you have your client tell the truth, so that Michael's family & fans can have some closure. I hope that Dr. Murray goes to prison, so he can become somebody's b**ch!

Let's clear things up a bit! Even though his bodyguard later came forth with his cofession, he must be telling the truth and his conscience got the best of him, thank GOD he did come forth with more incriminating evidence. Or was he too scared for his life to say anything before now? Maybe he knows more? Was he paid to remain quiet about it? I BELIEVE his story. No doubt that is why Dr. Murray ran to the bathroom to flush and destroy the evidence of his wrong doing as a medical professional. Knowing if he were found having those drugs in his posession the cosequences would be even more drastic for him. And the tube containing the white-ish colored fluid sounds correct. I've read other accounts of Michael's spider bite on his leg that needed attention, so that sounds accurate too. But what was in the tube and where did it dissappear too? and What medicine is administered in a tube into the leg? The Hospital should know what this mysterious fluid was...who kept tabs on the medicine Dr. Murray received?Dr. Murray, you WILL ANSWER TO GOD!!! You may be able to swindle the public or courts - but you cannot and will not get away with your neglegence. Did Dr. Murray fear for his JOB and commit what he may think of the perfect crime? Was there other things missing from Michaels personal belongings? Money? Jewelry? Bonds? Collectables? Songs? Weaponry?Now hearing about tazers and guns in the family - leads me to think there was more jealousy then public knows. I've also read Michaels brother Randy went to visit him and rudely crashed through the security gates in a very obnoxious mannor and forced himself in for a visit? Also that Michael did not get many visits from family. Was this Michael's choice or was he held captive? He could have been a hostage of Dr. Murray's?! or anyone else.Understand the Court systems are crooked and lawyers come a dime a dozen - the truth does not always get represented in the courtrooms nor the innocent. Accountability is what we all want. We want it for ourselves and we need it for Michael Jackson who cannot demand it for himself, and for his children and the Jackson family too. There are alot of gaps in this story.....

Why do people come here & write these long comments that are nothing but BS crap! From all of the information that I got, MJ was not being held captive. Especially, during the his last days, when he was going to the rehersals. MJ didn't want to see Randy because he didn't have an appointment. He just poped up at the house. Stop trying to spread your lies. Get you facts before commenting.

Yeah MJLover4life, you're right. The information that we have is painful enough. We don't need anyone to come here talking about Michael being held captive by Dr. Murray. IT'S NOTHING BUT MINDLESS BABBLE! THAT'S HOW RUMORS GET STARTED!

Dr. Murray just needs to go to jail and get it over with ...he is so hated in this country. If hes acquitted it won't help, his conscious will get the best of him just like Jordan Chandlers dad and he will harm himself....or someone else will do it for him. Lets face it. He's a moving target....and people literally "HATE" him for what he has done to one of the most loved person of this century. He knows, the public knows.. and no one can do anything about it. He can run, he can hide and he can have all the security he wants,,,along with a bullet proof vest, car...whatever....he's a goner.....sorry,,hey thats the way it is.
