Michael Jackson Autopsy Results
According to the L.A. County Coroner, Michael Jackson's autopsy has been completed, but more testing is needed before the official cause of death can be determined.
The coroner said the cause of death was deferred because additional testing, including toxicology and other tests, is needed. It will take 4-6 weeks to complete.
There was no trauma to Michael's body and "no indication of foul play" but Michael had been taking "some prescription medications."
Michael Jackson was pronounced dead in the emergency room of UCLA. Jackson's body will be released after 6 PM.
A close member of Michael Jackson's family said Jackson received a daily injection of a synthetic narcotic similar to morphine - Demerol. Yesterday he received a shot at 11:30 AM.
Family members are saying the dosage was "too much" and that's what caused his death.
Who was the last person to see Michael Jackson alive?
The last person to presumably see Michael Jackson alive is Dr. Conrad Murray. Jackson's live-in doctor unsuccessfully performed CPR on the King of Pop before the ambulance showed up.
The LAPD still has not spoken to the elusive doctor. Also, the reason the LAPD towed Murray's car from MJ's house last night is because "it might contain evidence."
Michael Jackson's doctor sent a letter to his patients 11 days ago, announcing that he will be indefinitely leaving his medical practice.
Dr. Conrad Murray sent the note on his letterhead from his medical practice in Las Vegas. He says, "I am deeply saddened to leave you at this point, but please know my absence is not permanent." He continues, "In my absence, I will continue to manage the practice, and be involved as much as possible but from a distance."
The letter says "My absence is not permanent."
Could the doctor's leave of absence have something to do with AEG, the company that was putting on the London concerts, putting Dr. Murray on the payroll?
