Conrad Murray "Did Not Mention" Giving MJ Propofol
Doctors from UCLA Medical Centre have testified at Conrad Murray's trial...
Michael Jackson's physician Conrad Murray apparently never told doctors at the hospital that the King of Pop had taken the powerful drug Propofol in the hours leading up to his death.
Dr. Richelle Cooper, who pronounced MJ dead at the hospital, claims Murray did not inform her that he had given Jackson Propofol before he stopped breathing, telling the court: "It is unlikely with that information that I would have been able to do something different that would have changed the outcome."
She also said that the Bad singer's life could not be saved, stating that she believed Michael had "died long before" his arrival at the UCLA Medical Centre on 25th June 2009.
Cooper confessed she had recommend that the paramedics declare Jackson dead as early as 12.57pm on the day of his passing, when they were still hoping to resuscitate him at his home.
She revealed: "I have never given a time of death in the field and then [had] that patient brought to me" explaining that she allowed Murray to "assume control and bring [Jackson] to the emergency room" as he was a doctor in the field with "potentially conflicting information".
Another doctor, Thao Nguyen, also testified during the second week of Murray's trial yesterday, telling the court that MJ's doctor "absolutely did not" mention Propofol to her in any of their conversations.
Murray's trial continues later today and is expected to last for another four weeks. If found guilty of involuntary manslaughter, he faces up to four years behind bars.
