Witness: Jackson’s Doc Bought 255 Anesthetic Vials

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A pharmacist says the doctor charged in Michael Jackson’s death bought 255 vials of a powerful anesthetic in the three months before the singer died.

Tim Lopez testified Monday at a preliminary hearing that Dr. Conrad Murray purchased four shipments of propofol between April 6 and June 10, 2009.

Murray has pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter. Prosecutors say he gave the singer a lethal dose of propofol mixed with other sedatives on June 25, 2009.

Lopez says Murray bought 130 vials of propofol in 100 milliliter doses and another 125 vials of the anesthetic in the smaller dose of 20 milliliters.

Lopez is the owner of Applied Pharmacy Services in Las Vegas, where Murray has a clinic.

      A man of honour? Are u kidding me! Conrad Murray is an incompetent man who does not deserve the tiitle of MD. What kind of Dr. administers propofol ouside a hospital? Even if a patient begs u for drugs, the doctor shouldn’t be so starstruck &/or greedy that he agrees to the patient’s requests. A man of honour doesn’t request $150,000 a month & then kills one of the world’s most beloved performers & humanitarians.

      Playing the blame game? A man died, there is blame to be assigned & that blame goes to CM who has to have a consequence for his actions. Yes, everyone is making up this BS & you’re the one who has all the knowledge! Get real!

    And I guess you sit on the left hand side of God huh? So glad you have ALL the info and answers. Money made this doctor do what he did. Guess you’d like to have him treat your family too. Nice. Plain and simple unethical behavior. Many doctors would have said no to this, and he should have done the same, but greed kept him in the game. Shame on all points.
