Doc admits to giving anesthetic to Jackson

In a police interview conducted two days after Jackson’s death, Murray narrated in a collected, steady voice, the long hours during which he tried in vain to get the star to sleep on drugs other than propofol, the powerful surgical anesthetic that ultimately caused Jackson’s death, the Los Angeles Times.

In the tape, Murray details his treatment of Jackson, including administration of propofol and admits giving the medicines, which Jackson referred to as “milk”, but said he did not administer enough to cause death.

The interview was played on Friday, the ninth day of the trial, after defence attorney J Michael Flanagan finished cross examination with coroner’s toxicologist Dan Anderson, who said propofol was found in various parts of the singer’s body, his blood and urine during an autopsy.

The amounts found led coroner’s officials to conclude that Jackson died from acute propofol intoxication, with other sedatives administered by Murray contributing to the death.
