Michael Jackson used 19 fake IDs to score drugs
The world stopped turning when news broke of pop legend Michael Jackson’s death in late June of 2009.
The 50-year-old “Thriller” vocalist was found unresponsive in his Los Angeles home after suffering cardiac arrest brought on by the anesthetic propofol
a drug reportedly routinely administered by Jackson’s physician, Conrad Murray.
The death was ruled a homicide, and Murray took all the blame. He was convicted of involuntary manslaughter and was sentenced to four years in prison
But Murray endured the brunt of public hatred even though Jackson — who would have turned 64 on Monday
was abusing drugs throughout much of his life in alarming doses and was allegedly easily enabled to do so by an array of other doctors
ones who never saw a day in jail after the King of Pop’s death, according to a new documentary “TMZ Investigates: Who Really Killed Michael Jackson” due out on Fox next month.
“It’s a lot more complicated than just: Dr. Murray was at his bedside when he died,” Orlando Martinez, the LAPD detective assigned to Jackson’s death, says in the doc.
