Report: Michael Jackson's sister knew he was killed
La Toya Jackson said yesterday that the coroner’s ruling confirmed what she believed: that her brother was killed.The Los Angeles County coroner ruled the death a homicide and records showed that Michael Jackson died from a lethal dose of the anesthetic propofol, administered by his physician, Dr. Conrad Murray. “I am thankful to the investigators for uncovering the truth to the world, and I look forward to the day that justice will be served to all the parties involved in my brother’s homicide,” she told ABC News yesterday. Meanwhile, Murray’s attorney, Ed Chernoff, criticized a search warrant that detailed the slew of medications Jackson received in the hours before the fatal dose of propofol. Chernoff said much of the warrant was true but also consisted of “police theory,” according to a statement posted to his law firm’s Web site. “Most egregiously, the timeline reported by law enforcement was not obtained through interviews with Dr. Murray, as was implied by the affidavit,” the statement said. The warrant listed the times Murray is alleged to have given Jackson several sedatives and propofol. The document also said Murray left Jackson’s room shortly after the singer fell asleep at 10:40 a.m. on June 25, something Chernoff said Murray never told investigators. As the investigation into the singer’s death continues, the tributes continue to rack up. The Apollo Theater will posthumously induct Jackson into its Legends Hall of Fame during a gala next year. The singer began his career on the famed theater’s stage in 1967, when the Jackson 5 won an amateur night. Jackson will also receive a plaque on the theater’s planned walk of fame. A tribute wall where fans have scrawled messages to the singer will also be placed in the theater’s archives, according to a statement from the Apollo.
