Now that MJ's death has been declared a homicide, Dr. Conrad Murray is back-pedaling.
After a search warrant affidavit was unsealed in court yesterday, revealing the information that the doctor gave Michael Jackson a whole slew of drugs on the day of his death, Dr. Feelgood's lawyers issued a statement denying some of the information police say he provided to them.
Specifically, Conrad is saying now that he didn't leave Michael alone after he drugged him up with the heavy anesthetic propofol.
Here's the timeline of events leading up to Michael's death. Remember -- this is what the doc allegedly told police during his questioning.
June 22: Conrad Murray gives MJ 25 milligrams of propofol along with the sedatives lorazepam and midazolam. Michael sleeps.
June 23: Doc gives same medical combo -- but this time without propofol in hopes of weaning him off it. Michael sleeps.
June 25 (Michael's last day): At about 1:30 a.m., Doc again tried to get Jackson to sleep without propofol and gives the singer a 10-milligram tablet of Valium. Michael can't sleep.
•Around 2 a.m.: Murray injects Michael with two milligrams of lorazepam -- no sleep.
• Around 3 a.m.: Murray then gives two milligrams of midazolam to the singer -- no sleep.
• Around 5 a.m.: Murray gives the singer another two milligrams of lorazepam but Jackson still can't sleep.
• Around 7:30 a.m.: Murray administers another two milligrams of midazolam. Murray claims he is continuously at Jackson's bedside, monitoring the singer with a pulse oximeter and measuring his pulse and oxygen statistics, but Michael is still awake
• Around 10:40 a.m.: Murray gives Jackson 25 milligrams of propofol diluted with lidocaine to keep the singer sedated after repeated demands for the drug by the singer. He finally falls asleep, and Murray continues to monitor him.
• After 10 minutes: Murray states he left Jackson's bedside to use the restroom and is gone for no more than two minutes. Upon his return, Murray finds Jackson not breathing. Murray begins CPR, and gives Jackson 0.2 milligrams of flumazenil, an antidote for certain overdoses. He calls Michael's personal assistant, Michael Amir Williams, and asks him to send security upstairs for an emergency.
Murray continues CPR - and before security arrives - he leaves Michael not breathing and runs to the hallway and downstairs to the kitchen, where he asks the chef to send up Michael's son, Prince. Murray continues CPR. The boy arrives upstairs and gets security.
• At 12:21 p.m.: Jackson staff member Alberto Alvarez dials 911, and the Los Angeles Fire Department responds on the scene shortly thereafter. Murray waits for the ambulance while conducting CPR, and later accompanies Jackson to the hospital.
Wow. If this is what he really told police, it is over.
