It was really frustrating that transcripts of preliminary hearing of People vs Conrad Murray case were banned from internet - http://acoupleofthoughs.blogspot.com/2011/03/conrad-murray-part-ii.html. I wanted to analyse information that is available already to try to understand what really happened on 25 of June, 2009. The trial is postponed until late September, so now I still have plenty of time to try to aggregate all the available information from preliminary hearings and to make an effort to see the whole picture. Besides I have some free time and a bit of inspiration left, so this is Conrad Murray. Part III.
I have to rely mainly upon TMZ for the timeline, so I really hope that their reporters are not blind, deaf and mentally inadequate. Here we have TMZ coverage of preliminary hearings. I have the same hopes for all other reportes whose information I'm going to use. I will use articles from www.radaronline.com and this site - it's a fan site that gathered information about preliminary hearing as well.
I'll try to put down the timeline. My comments are in bold italics:
6 of April. Dr. Murray began ordering large quantities of Propofol according to Tim Lopez, a pharmacist at Applied Pharmacy Services in Las Vegas. On that date, he ordered 10 single dose vials.
Murray had the drugs sent to his girlfriend's Santa Monica home where he was living.
28 of April. Murray ordered 4 boxes and each of the boxes had 10 100 ml vials.
Later that month, Murray ordered 20 vials of midazolam and 20 vials of lorazepam.
12 of May. Murray ordered 4 boxes of Propofol, along with 2 trays of midazolam.
10 of June. Murray ordered 4 boxes of Propofol, and 2 20ml Propofol. (According to Radaronline the pharmacist of Applied Pharmacy Service in Las Vegas testified that Murray bought 130 vials of popofol at 100 milliliters each and 125 vials of the same anesthetic at 20 milliliters). Mathematics was not my favourite subject at school, that's why I have hard time trying to figure out whether these two sources of information have matching figures.
19 of June. The singer showed up for a rehearsal at Staples Center seeming "lost" and too weak to perform according to Kenny Ortega, co-director of "This Is It".
20 of June. Ortega was summoned to a meeting at Jackson's mansion with the singer, his manager, the concert promoter and Murray. He said the doctor insisted that Jackson was emotionally and physically strong enough to perform and scolded Ortega for sending Jackson home — something he said he hadn't done. Ortega said MJ had the chills and was not well during the failed rehearsal the day before.
