Michael Jackson

Dangerous levels of the powerful anaesthetic propofol were found in Michael Jackson's body at the time of his death, according to an unsealed search warrant affidavit. The new information is the first to come from recent findings by officials at the Los Angeles California County Coroners office, which have been sealed until now, while police continue their investigations into Jackson's death. According to the Los Angeles Times newspaper the affidavit was unsealed on Monday in Houston, Texas, where a storage facility belonging to the pop star's doctor Conrad Murray was raided by police last month. In the search warrant documents, Murray tells LAPD detectives he had been treating Jackson for insomnia for six weeks before the singer's death, and he had been giving Jackson 50 milligrams of propofol every night using an intravenous line. The doctor also is claiming he was trying to wean Jackson off the drug and had lowered the dosage to 25 milligrams and mixed it with other sedatives. He states that on June 23rd, two days before Jackson's death, he administered two replacement medications and withheld the propofol. In the newly unsealed affidavit, Dr. Murray reveals he gave Jackson Valium at 1:30 a.m. on the morning of his death and when that failed to relax the pop star, he injected Lorazepam intravenously at 2 a.m. and administered Midazolam an hour later. Jackson died later that morning after suffering a cardiac arrest. Read the breaking TMZ story here....
