The news that Michael Jackson killed himself with a lethal injection of Propofol has horrified his father, Joe Jackson according to TMZ.
Dr. Conrad Murray’s story for his defense in the Michael Jackson death case describes how Jackson injected himself with a lethal dose of medication. Murray, Jackson’s private doctor at the time, said he had gone to the bathroom and when he got back, Jackson himself had injected the Propofol dosage that killed him.
The story Murray is telling is contradictory to what the autopsy report indicates says Joe Jackson’s lawyer, Brian Oxman. Joe Jackson believes the story is untrue and is upset that this would be said about his son, Michael Jackson. Joe Jackson said that if this was true, why would Murray hide all the Propofol bottles?
The story Murray is now reporting says that he administered 1/8 of a bottle of Propofol to Michael Jackson about 11am, that along with Ativan and another medication Jackson had in his system should have kept him asleep for a while. Murray stayed in Jackson’s room on the phone while Jackson slept, reports Murray.
Around noon, Murray left the bedroom to use the bathroom for 2 minutes. When he returned he noticed Jackson’s eyes were wide open and his pupils dilated. He started CPR on Jackson at that point. Murray said Jackson must of woke up while he was in the bathroom and put the remaining contents of the Propofol bottle into his IV. Murray says it was Jackson who administered his own lethal overdose of this drug. He also said that an empty Propofol bottle was shown in the crime scene pictures, under the nightstand, next to Jackson’s bed. He believed that was the bottle and that Jackson dropped it after the massive dose he gave himself kicked in.
It is also strange that this defense has not been mentioned before by the doctor who has been the center of the death investigation of Michael Jackson. Joe Jackson is filing a wrongful death lawsuit for the death of his son against Murray.
Doctors that are giving out all types of medications to stars has been brought to light lately in the deaths of Hollywood stars including Michael Jackson.

Propofol is used under strict guidelines with many precautions put in place when someone is put out under this general anesthesia.
