Lethal Dosage of Propofol, Other Drugs Found In Jackson Search Warrant
In an unsealed search warrant, released Tuesday, Michael Jackson’s physician, Dr. Conrad Murray says he gave the late entertainer 50 milligrams of propofol, in addition to other drugs.
According to a timeline released by the Los Angeles Times, Murray attempted to put Jackson to sleep by intreveniously injecting valium and lorazepam before giving into Jackson’s insistence on a dose of propofol.
Allegedly giving the late King of Pop propofol last because he believed that the singer had become addicted, Murray told police the other drugs were used in an attempt to “wean” Jackson.
“On the morning Jackson died, Murray tried to induce sleep without using propofol, according to the affidavit. He said he gave Jackson valium at 1:30 a.m. When that didn’t work, he said, he injected lorazepam intravenously at 2 a.m. At 3 a.m., when Jackson was still awake, Murray administered midazolam. Over the next few hours, Murray said he gave Jackson various drugs. Then at 10:40 a.m., Murray administered 25 milligrams of propofol after Jackson repeatedly demanded the drug, according to the court records,” reports the LA Times.
At press time an arrest or official statement from investigators had not been made regarding the unsealed search warrant.
Sources say two other doctors are being questioned for their alleged decision to prescribe drugs.
