It took Michael Jackson’s doctor a half-hour to call 911after finding MJ unconscious — this according to the doc’s lawyer, Edward Chernoff.
Chernoff explained this bizarre revelation by saying Dr. Conrad Murray didn’t immediately make the call from his cell phone because he didn’t know the exact address of Michael’s mansion. For the record, the house is just above Sunset Blvd. in Beverly Hills — one of the most famous streets in the country.
Chernoff said Murray eventually got someone in the house to make the call.
Murray has already taken heat for performing CPR on Jackson as he was lying on a bed. Chernoff’s excuse … it was a “firm bed.
What I’ve noticed is that a couple weeks before his death Michael was seen with his kids without them wearing masks, which was unusual because Michael always had them hiden.
I’ve a feeling Michael commit suicide.
Joe Jackson suspects Michael ‘foul play’
Michael Jackson’s father Joe is struggling to come to terms with the shocking death of his son, adding he is yet to rule out ”foul play”.
Michael Jackson’s father suspects “foul play” in his son’s death.
Joe Jackson refused to reveal any details about his concerns, but admitted he was struggling to come to terms with the suddenness of Michael’s passing last week.
He said: “Michael was dead before he left the house. I’m suspecting foul play somewhere. He was waving to everybody and telling them he loves them and all the fans at the gate. A few minutes after Michael was out there, he was dead.”
Michael died of a suspected cardiac arrest at the Los Angeles home he rented.
An autopsy has indicated no signs of trauma or foul play, but toxicology tests are not expected to come back for four to six weeks. The Jackson family have ordered a second autopsy, and are believed to be keen for police to start a criminal investigation. Joe claimed the family are yet to decide on the funeral arrangements for Michael, although it has been reported it could take place as soon as Wednesday (01.07.09).
He also confirmed he and his wife Katherine are caring for Michael’s three children, Prince Michael, 12, Paris, 11, and seven-year-old Prince Michael II, adding the kids are his “first priority”.
The Case Sensitive Unit at the Los Angeles County Department of Child and Family Services visited the children on Friday (26.06.09) to discuss who will be caring for them.
Reports have suggested Michael’s ex-wife Debbie Rowe – the mother of his two eldest children – may seek custody, but would need to be thoroughly vetted before any action takes place.
A source said: “This is listed as a ‘Caretaker Absence’ situation and we are highly sensitised to such a high-profile case. You can’t just become a parent – how much contact has Rowe had with the kids? Criminal checks, dietary and immunization checks will all be done.”
Despite Joe’s claims his son was in good shape prior to his death, leaked autopsy reports suggest he was frail and almost bald.
The pop legend reportedly weighed just 51kg when he passed away, and his stomach was empty except for partially-dissolved prescription pills.
His hips, thighs and shoulders were covered in needle marks, believed to be the result of narcotic painkillers the singer took three times a day.
There were also four injection sites near his heart – evidence of a failed bid to pump adrenaline directly into the organ in an attempt to restart it.
Michael’s personal doctor Conrad Murray – who is understood to have injected the 50-year-old singer’s heart with adrenaline in a bid to save him – has been questioned by police.
It is claimed Murray – who was due to travel to London with Michael ahead of his 50-date comeback tour – gave Michael an injection of painkiller Demerol shortly before his death. His lawyer Edward Chernoff has denied this and his spokesman has insisted he is not being treated as a suspect
In other news, MSNBC has reported that the ‘This Is It’ show Michael was to perform will carry on as a tribute show with big names to perform in rememberence for Michael Jackson, rumors say one of them will be Madonna, she was to make an appearance anyway during Michael show in London. I’m sure the list will gradually grow in the weeks to come.
