Pop star Michael Jackson died from a lethal dose of the powerful anesthetic propofol given in a cocktail of drugs, leading authorities to suspect his doctor of manslaughter, court documents showed on Monday.
An investigation by state and federal agencies have focused on Conrad Murray, Jackson’s personal doctor who was at his bedside the day he died. The findings, contained in a warrant to search Murray’s home and offices, paint a picture of an insomniac pop star who could not sleep without heavy medication.

Dr. Conrad Murray, the personal doctor to Michael Jackson who was with the King of Pop when he suffered cardiac arrest and died on June 25, has spoken out in a video statement. And you can read about it here. But to watch his own words, click below.
Will this video do anything to dampen the public interest in Murray that has arisen since the police probe into Jackson’s death? On Monday, an attorney for Jackson’s mother, Katherine, reportedly said she is considering filing a wrongful death lawsuit against Murray. But while police are investigating Jackson’s death and the treatment he received from doctors, they have not formally charged Murray or anyone with any wrongdoing.
