The recent trial of Jackson’s doctor Conrad Murray nearly eclipsed the tragic and shady events that transpired alongside the King of Pop’s death.
Jackson had displayed various signs of health in the days leading up to his June 25, 2009 death as he rehearsed for his “This Is It” concert series. Murray found his body, still warm, that afternoon and reportedly had a bizarre reaction and made some strange requests instead of seeming shocked or upset. Jackson soon died after experiencing full cardiac arrest.
Words like “propofol” and “demerol” filled stories that speculated about the real cause of Jackson’s death and whether or not Murray, who was Jackson’s personal physician, was culpable in his death. Murray had administered the heavy sedatives that Jackson took as his health declined in his final months and years.
Murray was ultimately found guilty of involuntary manslaughter on November 7, 2011.
