Michael Jackson pleaded to let him have some fatal milk – the powerful hospital anaesthetic propofol – during his last moments, his jailed doctor revealed in a TV documentary.
Conrad Murray refused to give evidence at his trial to explain how Jackson died, but reveal the King of Pop’s final words in a paid-for interview for a TV documentary.
“He was pleading and begging to please please let him have some milk because that was the only thing that would work,” the Daily Mail quoted Murray as saying in the film.
By milk here, the 58-year-old cardiologist was referring to propofol, the powerful hospital anaesthetic Jackson overdosed on the day he died.
Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter for administering the lethal injection.
In the documentary, to be screened on Channel Four later this week, Murray said Jackson looked like the heavily made-up character he portrayed in his famous ‘Thriller’ video in the days before he died.
“He really could not sleep. Have you ever seen the Thriller image when he was made up? He looked that hysterical,” he said.
The physician’s two-and-a-half hour interview with detectives was the only explanation the jury and Jackson’s family have had from Murray, who was the only person with the star when he died on June 25, 2009.
