Michael Jackson died of a sleep disorder

Thanks to Little Miss Attila, I just read the New York Times story from 8/24/09 based on information obtained in Texas from court documents regarding the investigation into the death of Michael Jackson on June 25. The documents name the cause of death as the anesthetic propofol, which should never be used outside of a hospital because of the degree to which it suppresses breathing.

So why do I say Michael Jackson died of a sleep disorder? Because he would not have demanded, manipulated, bribed and coerced doctors and nurse practitioners to give him the propofol and other drugs to make him sleep if he did not have a sleep disorder, which was probably undiagnosed, and definitely was not being treated appropriately. Even so, Jackson was so willful that it appears he disregarded the advice of any health professional that disagreed with the treatment and drugs that Jackson desired. So Jackson also died of his own willfulness.

The New York Times piece gives the most complete timeline I’ve read to date of the events surrounding Jackson’s death, but I think they have one thing wrong. Jackson was probably dead as a doornail by the time his personal physician, cardiologist Dr. Conrad Murray, returned to his side after leaving him to go to the bathroom. And waiting 82 minutes from discovering Jackson not breathing until calling 911? In the movies that time would be spent on getting rid of evidence.

Also, Cherilyn Lee has been identified in other news stories as a nurse practitioner. Nurse practitioners are allowed to prescribe medications when they are practicing under a doctor’s supervision. That is why Jackson approached her begging for a prescription for propofol. Ms. Lee refused and cautioned Jackson.

So — Michael Jackson may not have died of obstructive sleep apnea, but the root cause of his death is still a sleep disorder because he told the medical professionals appeasing him — you can’t say “treating” — that he just wanted to sleep.

    I agree 100%. And, you know, if there wasn’t so much
    insurance money at stake … we may actually get the truth about the sleep disorder. Could be a real “wake up call” (pardon the pun) if the MSM reported the story from this angle.

    At this point, however, the family and it’s coroners have a seriously vested interest in proving that the death was not caused by “drug abuse” or suicide. What that means is…. we, the public, will get a whole bunch of hooha about the evil doctor that “murdered” Jackson for money.

    (If the doc was white, we’d get an even worse spin … about white racists taking advantage of black rich people. But, I digress.)

    At the end of the day… what the MSM covers won’t help any of us one bit. Cept the Jackson estate, maybe.

    • SYD,

      Thanks. Funny how this illustrates a disadvantage of having TOO much money and power when obtaining healthcare. The rich and powerful foolishly dictate to their doctors and shop for doctors whom they can dominate. But the bottom line is that the doctor or nurse practitioner — since they both have prescribing authority — must stand firm. Cherilyn Lee, the nurse practioner, did. Dr. Murray did not. It looks right now that it would be entirely appropriate for him to be prosecuted for manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson. Dr. Murray needed Michael Jackson alive to get his money — so I don’t think he intended to kill Michael Jackson, he was just so incompetent as a doctor that he caused Jackson’s death.
