A Los Angeles law enforcement professional, speaking on condition of anonymity, has alleged that Michael Jackson used Dr. Conrad Murray for continuous injections of propofol. The late King of Pop, whose death is currently being investigated, allegedly used the drug as a crutch because he had trouble sleeping. Though toxicology reports are pending, the unnamed authority who spoke Monday, said they believe the drug, only to be administered by an anesthesiologist, is what ultimately killed the iconic performer in June. Police searching Jackson’s rented mansion in the Los Angeles area allegedly found propofol, other drugs, numerous tanks of oxygen and an IV line used to administer the drug in the entertainer’s bedroom and a nearby security guard’s shack. According to Bio Medicine and the AP, Propofol can slow breathing, lower heart rates and blood pressure when administered. However, the drug must also be accompanied by oxygen which provides artificial ventilation. In a 2008 study conducted at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, two out of three patients died after going into cardiac arrest for unexplained reasons. Official toxicology reports from the ongoing investigation into Michael Jackson’s death are due to be released at a later date. In related news, reports issued Monday say Dr. Conrad Murray has been deemed a suspect in a manslaughter probe into Michael Jackson’s death. According to the Los Angeles Times, papers filed Thursday in Houston name Murray as a suspect in the criminal investigation that resulted in two different search warrants served at the doctor’s Houston clinic and a nearby storage unit.
