This certainly isn't going to help his case.
As the preliminary hearing against Dr. Conrad Murray for the murder of Michael Jackson continued yesterday, yet more shady details about the day the pop star passed are coming out, thanks to a testimony from a Paramedic and security guard who were both at the scene.
El Lay County Paramedic Richard Senneff took the stand to reveal that when the ambulance arrived at the Jackson home on June 25, 2009, at 12:26pm, the singer appeared already to be quite dead, despite Dr. Murray's claims.
"When I picked him up, his legs were quite cool. His eyes were quite dry."
He went on to testify that no pulse was detected, and a heart monitor showed that Jackson had flatlined.
He also asserted that Murray claimed that Jackson had only been given a dose of lorazepam to help him sleep, and had only just collapsed, which Shereff thought "didn't add up."
Even more disturbing, however, is the account from Jackon's former security chief, Faheem Muhammed, that Murray didn't know how to administer CPR properly!
He explained that when he and bodyguard Alberto Alvarez entered the room, they found the doctor crouched down "in a panicked state asking, 'Does anyone know CPR?' I looked at Alberto because we knew Dr. Murray was a heart surgeon, so we were shocked. The way that he asked it is as if he didn't know CPR." and that during the entire ordeal, his boss appeared dead, with his "eyes open and his mouth open, just laying there."
The more about this day that comes out, the more horrific and preventable this entire tragedy seems.
Our heart goes out to the Jackson family, whom we're sure must be struggling to endure this entire mess all over again.
This NEEDS to go to trial, and this man needs to be held accountable for his negligence!
