Michael Jackson’s doctor waited 82 minutes to call 911
Michael Jackson‘s death has been ruled a homicide by the Los Angeles County Coroner’s office, reports People, in the latest twist in the ongoing investigation into the singer’s June 25 death.
According to reports, an autopsy showed lethal levels of anesthetic propofol in Jackson’s body, a powerful sedative that the singer reportedly referred to as his “milk.”
Dr. Conrad Murray, Jackson’s personal doctor and the last person to see him alive, had been giving Jackson the propofol sedative to help him sleep in the six weeks leading up to the singer’s death. Suspicions were raised after it took over 82 minutes for anyone to call 911 after Murray found Jackson unconscious and not breathing. However, Murray denies any wrongdoing in the King of Pop’s death.
