Michael Jackson’s death: County coroner’s official announcement

The Los Angeles County coroner’s office has made the official announcement that Michael Jackson’s death has been ruled a homicide and said he died of “acute propofol intoxication.”

Michael Jackson’s death was a homicide, coroner rules

LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) — The Los Angeles County coroner has ruled that Michael Jackson’s death was a homicide involving a combination of drugs.

“The drugs propofol and lorazepam were found to be the primary drugs responsible for Mr. Jackson’s death,” said a news release issued Friday by the coroner. “Other drugs detected were: midazolam, diazepam, lidocaine and ephedrine.”

The release said Jackson died from “acute propofol intoxication,” but said “other conditions contributing to death: benzodiazepine effect.”

Lorazepam, midazolam and diazepam are benzodiazepines.

A lawyer for Jackson’s personal physician criticized the coroner for releasing only a brief summary of his findings, saying it contained “nothing new” and had “all the earmarks of police gamesmanship.”

Michael Jackson’s family issued a statement in reaction: “The Jackson family again wishes to commend the actions of the Coroner, the LAPD and other law enforcement agencies, and looks forward to the day that justice can be served.”

Federal and state agencies also have launched independent investigations into “matters uncovered” by Los Angeles police while looking into Jackson’s death, authorities said.

Damn that’s alot of drugs. One on top of another. Dr. Murray can kiss his medical career goodbye.

While Dr. Murray has Michael’s death on his hands I still wish Michael had sought help in other ways besides drugs to solve his insomnia.  With all the money he had, there had to be some place he could have gone to seek help. You wonder if there was a close friend or confidante (who wasn’t in the medical field) that he could have talked to about his insomina and pain killer addiction.
