LOS ANGELES, CA – Even dead, Michael Jackson can’t keep out of the news. Jury selection has begun in the civil case Jackson’s family has filed against AEG Live. They claim the concert promoter is responsible for Jackson’s death in 2009 from a drug overdose.
The family says AEG should not have hired Houston doctor Conrad Murray who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter for giving Jackson the Propofol that killed the King of Pop.
Murray is in prison, and he says Jackson’s family hasn’t subpoenaed him to testify. And even if they did, Murray says he would invoke the Fifth Amendment because he’s appealing his conviction
That’s not so weird. What’s weird is to hear Murray break out in song during a telephone interview.
Murray admits he prescribed Propofol to Jackson, but says he did it to help Jackson get off of it.
Guess Doc Murray forgot about that old saying about the road to Hell being paved with good intentions.
