Rumors that Michael Jackson’s doctor was missing were proven false, as Michael Jackson’s doctor wasn’t missing for long, and had been questioned by police. When it was rumored that Michael Jackson’s doctor was missing, it only added another layer of suspicion. However, since the Jackson doctor isn’t missing, and reportedly did answer police questions, it puts speculation that he was running away to rest. Still, questions about Dr. Conrad Murray, and that he might be the last person to see Michael Jackson alive, have answers that are still missing.
Dr. Conrad Murray was reported missing yesterday, but the LAPD said he was found, and had been cooperating. Dr. Murray was Michael Jackson’s personal physician and cardiologist for three years, and therefore a key figure in the rumors and speculation that prescription pills killed Michael Jackson.
Before Jackson’s doctor was rumored as missing, police had reportedly questioned him on Thursday, then impounded his car on Friday. The car, which belonged to Dr. Murray’s sister, was there on the scene when the ambulance arrived, along with Dr. Conrad Murray himself.
Murray was rumored to have been trying to revive Jackson before he was taken away. The cardiologist is not a suspect in any wrongdoing, since the death of Michael Jackson has no foul play attached so far. But since Dr. Murray was there on the scene in Jackson’s final moments, he can help shed light on that day, and answer the growing questions about Jackson’s medications.
Dr. Conrad Murray had been treating Michael Jackson personally for three years, and would have gone with Jackson to London for his comeback tour.
With people like Jackson attorney Brian Oxman questioning the late singer’s prescription drug use, and how much it was enabled all these years, Dr. Murray has become a key figure of interest in that controversy. This is likely why the LAPD needed to talk to him so badly.
Just how close Dr. Murray was to Michael Jackson is uncertain. How much Jackson needed medication during preparation for his comeback tour is also up for debate. The Jackson family claimed that he received a large dose of Demerol before his cardiac arrest, which would have needed to be administered by a certified doctor.
The debate over what happened in those final hours, and what was administered, is likely to go on as the world faces a long wait for the official Michael Jackson autopsy reports. A source had told the AP that Jackson suffered a heart attack, not an overdose, but the source wished to remain anonymous.
