Michael Jackson’s aide speaks on Conrad Murray cover-up plan Asistente de Michael Jackson dice que médico intentó esconder unas “cremas”
On September 28, 2011 · In News Por Michael Thurston (AFP) – hace 12 horas
LOS ANGELES  (AFP) – Michael Jackson’s personal assistant told Wednesday of the “frantic” scenes as doctors battled to save the star’s life — and how medic Conrad Murray suggested a cover-up minutes after his death.On the second day of a long-awaited manslaughter trial, the court also heard that Murray claimed repeatedly that the pop icon was in good health, in the days and weeks before his death on June 25, 2009.The most gripping testimony though came from Michael Amir Williams, Jackson’s personal assistant for two years leading up to his death aged 50 from an overdose of the powerful sedative propofol.He recalled the phone call from Murray alerting him that something had gone terrible wrong.

“He said ‘Where are you?’ I said: ‘I’m downtown.’ He said ‘Get here right away, Mr. Jackson had a bad reaction. Get here right away’ .. He said ‘Get somebody up here immediately,” Williams told the LA Superior Court.

When he arrived at Jackson’s rented mansion in the plush Holmby Hills district 30-40 minutes later, “It was real frantic. I got there when the gurney was coming down,” he said.

The trial opened in Los Angeles Tuesday, when prosecutors laid out their case that Murray was guilty of “gross negligence,” while the medic’s lawyers said the drug-addicted star effectively caused his own death.

The first day saw chilling images of Jackson’s dead body and heard a haunting audio recording of the heavily-drugged singer talking on the phone only weeks before his death.

But it also heard evidence that Jackson, while giving cause for health concerns a week or two before he died, was in reasonable form in his last days, rehearsing for an ill-fated series of comeback shows in London.

His assistant echoed that Wednesday, recalling the last rehearsal at LA’s Staples Center on the night of March 24. “He was in good spirits,” he said, adding of Jackson’s last time on stage: “I thought it was amazing.”

But things went wrong overnight, when Murray allegedly gave Jackson a series of drugs to help him sleep — the doctor’s lawyers claim the star took more by himself — before finding him not breathing after going out the bathroom.

The next day, as paramedics rushed Jackson to the nearby UCLA hospital, Williams recounted how the media were already in hot pursuit, forcing him to shield the star’s children Prince Michael, Paris and Blanket from view.

“I took off my jacket and covered them up one by one, and took them inside the hospital. There were cameras everywhere,” he said.

After Jackson was pronounced dead, he recounted what he called an “odd” conversation with Murray. “I was in a hallway. We were making small talk about how horrible this is.”

Then, “he said that there’s some cream in Michaels room .. that he wouldn’t want the world to know about. And he requested that I or someone give him a ride back to the house to get it.”

He refused the request, saying he pretended that he did not have his car keys. “I was emotional. There was a lot going on. that was the last thing I really was thinking about,” he said.

Pre-trial hearings heard evidence that Murray asked for other medicine and equipment — reportedly including bottles of propofol — to be removed from the room before police arrived.

The state of Jackson’s health is central to the involuntary manslaughter trial, which is due to last five weeks.

On Wednesday a lawyer tasked with drawing up Murray’s $150,000-a-month contract to look after Jackson during the planned “This Is It’ London shows said the doctor told her repeatedly that Jackson was fine.

“Dr. Murray told me repeatedly that Michael Jackson was perfectly healthy, in excellent condition,” attorney Kathy Jorrie testified, adding Murray told her “Don’t worry about it, he’s great.”

Murray, 58, faces up to four years in jail if convicted by a jury of seven men and five women.

 

LOS ÁNGELES — El asistente de Michael Jackson dijo el miércoles durante el juicio al médico Conrad Murray por la muerte del cantante, que su jefe padecía una enfermedad en la piel y que el doctor le pidió que sacara unas “cremas” de la casa del “rey del pop” el día que murió.En ocasiones el artista iba todos los días a ver a su dermatólogo Arnold Klein, contó el asistente personal de Jackson en la Corte Superior de Los Ángeles, en el segundo día del juicio a Murray por homicidio involuntario.Jackson murió hace dos años por una intoxicación de sedantes que supuestamente le habría administrado Murray, mientras la defensa afirma que el cantante causó su propia muerte al ingerir la sobredosis. Por esto, el estado de salud del rey del pop es crucial en el proceso.”Había veces que (Jackson) iba casi todos los días; había veces que dejaba de ir por un par de días. Fluctuaba”, dijo su asistente y jefe de seguridad Faheem Muhammad.

Cuando se le preguntó si Jackson acudía a ese médico por una enfermedad en la piel, Muhammed respondió “sí” y agregó que la estrella le dijo: “Mis médicos me dicen que tengo que ir, y voy”.

Otro asistente, Michael Amir Williams, también dijo que “en un determinado momento (las visitas a Klein) se volvieron muy frecuentes”.

El martes, el tribunal escuchó un audio en el que Jackson, aparentemente muy drogado, balbucea cosas ininteligibles en una conversación con Murray.

Williams dijo que Jackson a veces hablaba muy lentamente al salir de las sesiones con Klein, aunque nunca de una forma tan ininteligible como en el audio que se dio a escuchar en sala.

Muhammad también contó cómo los hijos del cantante se descompusieron cuando vieron que le daban masajes cardiopulmonares a su padre en la mañana del 25 de junio de 2009, cuando el “rey del pop” murió a los 50 años.

“Paris estaba en el piso llorando y Prince estaba parado ahí, y parecía en shock, sabes, con esa expresión en la cara cuando lloras en silencio”, dijo Faheem Muhammad refiriéndose a dos de los tres hijos de Jackson.

Williams contó también que Murray le dejó un mensaje telefónico pidiendo que llamara a un guardia de seguridad. “Si me hubiera dicho que llamara al 911, habría llamado al 911 (…) Pero pidió llamar a un guardia y llamé a un guardia”.

En el momento en que el asistente llegó 30 o 40 minutos después a la mansión del cantante en el adinerado barrio Holmby Hills, al oeste de Los Angeles, “era todo una locura, llegué cuando ya estaban bajando la camilla”, dijo.

La fiscalía acusó a Murray de haber actuado con “grave negligencia” por abandonar a su paciente tras suministrarle una sobredosis de Propofol que lo mató, mientras la defensa afirmó que Jackson causó su propia muerte al ingerir dos sedantes (Lorazepam y Propofol) cuando estaba fuera de la vigilancia del doctor.

El asistente dijo el miércoles, recordando el último ensayo del cantante el 24 de marzo, que Jackson “estaba muy bien” y el show era “impresionante”.

Luego de que se declaró la muerte del autor de “Thriller”, Williams contó lo que calificó como una “rara” conversación con Murray. “Yo estaba en el pasillo. Hablábamos de lo horrible que era esto”.

Luego “me dijo que había unas cremas en el cuarto de Michael (…) y que él no querría que el mundo las viera, y me pidió que yo o alguien lo llevara a la casa para sacarlas”.

El asistente le negó el favor simulando que no tenía las llaves de su vehículo. “Eso era lo último que me importaba”, explicó.

En audiencias preliminares se había escuchado evidencia de que Murray, de 58 años, había pedido que sacaran equipos médicos, supuestamente entre ellos botellas de Propofol, de la habitación de Jackson antes de que llegara la policía.

La familia de Jackson, incluyendo a su madre Katherine, volvió a asistir a la corte sin hacer comentarios a la prensa. El martes ella y el padre del cantante, Joe, estuvieron presentes junto a los hermanos Jermaine, Janet, La Toya, Randy, Tito y Rebbie.

Frantic calls, crying kids at scene of Jackson death El médico de Jackson tardó en llamar a la ambulancia
By Alex DobuzinskisLOS ANGELES | Wed Sep 28, 2011 11:12pm EDT jueves 29 de septiembre de 2011 07:53 CEST
 (Reuters) – Witnesses on day two of the Michael Jackson death trial told of a panic-stricken doctor and the pop star’s children crying in disbelief with their father lying unresponsive on his bedroom floor, mouth agape and eyes wide open.Faheem Muhammad, the ex-chief of Jackson’s security team, testified on Wednesday that Jackson’s oldest children reacted in horror when they saw their father’s lifeless body.Another witness said Dr. Conrad Murray, who is charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death, telephoned the singer’s assistant before calling an ambulance and may have sought to hide evidence of drug use.

Prosecutors claim Murray not only caused Jackson’s death by giving him the powerful anesthetic propofol as a sleep aid, along with other sedatives but that the physician also was negligent in his care of the “Thriller” singer and failed to get timely medical assistance.

Murray admitted giving Jackson propofol — the principal cause of his death — but his defense attorneys claim Jackson administered more propofol to himself, leading to an overdose. Murray faces up to four years in prison if convicted.

Wednesday’s most dramatic testimony came from Muhammad, who told of a panicked call from Murray that brought the security chief rushing to the singer’s bedroom. There he saw Murray and another guard already in the room and Jackson’s oldest children, Prince and Paris, taking in the frantic scene.

“Paris was on the ground balled-up crying and Prince, he was just standing there, he had a real shocked — just slowly crying — look on his face,” Muhammad said.

Muhammad said that, around the same time, Murray asked himself and the other guard, “Does anybody know CPR?” Cardiopulmonary resuscitation is the common procedure to restart a heart in a person who has suffered cardiac arrest.

TIMELINE FOR HELP

In other testimony, prosecutors sought to draw a timeline between when Murray found Jackson unresponsive at 11:56 a.m. (2:56 p.m. EDT/1856 GMT) on June 25, 2009, and when the doctor finally sought help.

Initially, Murray called the singer’s personal assistant, Michael Williams, at 12:13 p.m./1613 GMT with the message “Call me right away,” rather than calling for an ambulance.

Williams testified that he called Murray back at 12:15 p.m., and was told Jackson had suffered “a bad reaction.”

“When I hear a ‘bad reaction,’ I wouldn’t think anything fatal, personally, and I wasn’t asked to call 911,” Williams said. He said Murray told him to get to Jackson’s mansion immediately.

An ambulance was finally called at 12:20 p.m. and it was already there when Williams arrived at the Jackson mansion.

“It was real frantic. I got there when the gurney (carrying Jackson) was coming down” from the bedroom, Williams said.

The assistant said that at the hospital where Jackson was later pronounced dead, Murray made a request that seemed strange. “He said, ‘There’s some cream in Michael’s room that he wouldn’t want the world to know about,’ and he requested that I or someone would give him a ride back to the house, so that he could get the cream,” said Williams.

Prosecutors have suggested Murray probably wanted to return there to remove evidence of the drugs that he had given Jackson before he died.

Earlier on Wednesday, a lawyer who drafted Murray’s contract to provide medical services for Jackson said the doctor had assured her multiple times in the days before his death that the singer’s health was good.

“Dr. Murray told me repeatedly that Michael Jackson was perfectly healthy, in excellent condition,” Los Angeles attorney Kathy Jorrie said on the witness stand.

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – El médico de Michael Jackson llamó al asistente personal del cantante en lugar de a una ambulancia cuando se dio cuenta que la estrella de “Thriller” había dejado de respirar en junio de 2009, escuchó el miércoles un tribunal de Los Angeles.Después de que el músico fue declarado muerto horas después en el hospital, el doctor Conrad Murray quería regresar a la casa de Jackson y encontrar un poco de crema que el cantante “no hubiera querido que el mundo conociera”, declaró el asistente personal, Michael Williams.Williams testificó en el caso sobre la caótica mañana de la muerte de Jackson, en el segundo día del juicio por homicidio involuntario contra Murray.

Los fiscales alegan que Murray no sólo causó la muerte de Jackson al darle el poderoso anestésico propofol como ayuda para dormir, sino que también fracasó en obtener asistencia médica oportuna después de encontrar que Jackson no respondía a las 11:56 a.m. hora local (18:56 GMT) del 25 de junio de 2009.

Murray ha admitido dar a Jackson propofol como ayuda para dormir. Pero sus abogados afirmaron que Jackson consumió una dosis extra del anestésico, y también otros medicamentos de prescripción, y que eso fue lo que causó su muerte súbita. Murray se enfrenta a cuatro años de cárcel si es hallado culpable.

El 25 de junio, no se llamó a una ambulancia hasta las 12:20 p.m., cuando un guardia de seguridad de la mansión, donde Jackson yacía sin vida en su dormitorio, llamó a los servicios de emergencia.

Los fiscales dijeron que el primer intento de Murray de conseguir ayuda fue a las 12:12 p.m. cuando llamó a Williams y dejó un mensaje diciendo, “Llámame enseguida”.

Williams, quien estaba en su casa, declaró que devolvió la llamada de Murray a las 12:15 p.m., y le dijeron que Jackson había sufrido “una mala reacción”.

“Cuando escuché una ‘mala reacción,’ no pensé en algo fatal, en lo personal, y no me pidieron que llamara al 911”, dijo Williams. Agregó que Murray le dijo que fuera a la mansión de Jackson de inmediato y también que enviara un guardia de seguridad.

Williams declaró que cuando llegó a la mansión de Jackson, la ambulancia ya estaba allí.

Conrad Murray Trial, Day 2: Assistant Says Doctor Tried to Get Back Into MJ’s House (Live Feed) Testigos clave comparecen en juicio de caso Jackson
By Sharon Waxman at TheWrapWed Sep 28, 2011 11:41am EDTUpdate, 2:15 p.m.: Michael Jackson’s former security chief, Faheem Muhammad, has taken the stand. He says that Jackson seemed fine during his concert rehearsal the night before he died: “It was excellent, it was high-energy.”

Muhammad further testified that he entered Jackson’s home and went upstairs into his bedroom on the afternoon of the singer’s death, and saw Jackson’s feet hanging off of the bed, toward the foot of the bed. He testified that Murray asked him and Jackson’s logistics director, Alberto Alvarez, if they knew CPR, at which point Alvarez went to help Murray try to revive Jackson.

However, it might have been too late; asked if it looked like Jackson was already dead, Muhammad replied, “Yes.”

Muhammad further testified that he noticed an IV stand in Jackson’s bedroom when he was up there. He also backed up the testimony from Jackson’s personal assistant, Michael Williams, that Murray wanted to return to Jackson’s home shortly after the singer was pronounced dead.

During cross-examination, Muhanmad said that he had accompanied Jackson to the office of Dr. Arnold Klein’s office many times, and often he would emerge from Klein’s office seeming tipsy or intoxicated. According to Muhammad, Jackson’s visits to Klein ranged from daily, to once every few days. Muhammad said that Jackson told him he went to see Klein because he had “a skin disease.”

Update, 11:34 a.m.:  Michael Jackson’s former personal assistant, Michael Williams, testifies that Dr. Conrad Murray attempted to gain re-entry to Jackson’s Holmby Hills home shortly after Jackson was pronounced dead at the hospital on June 25, 2009, supposedly to retrieve an ointment that would be embarrassing to Jackson.

“We were making small talk about how horrible this is,” Williams said. “[Murray] said, ‘There’s some cream in Michael’s room or house that he wouldn’t want the world to know about it, and he requested that I or someone else drive him back to the house so he could get the cream, so the world wouldn’t know about it.”

Williams testified that, after consulting with security guard Faheem Mohammad, they determined that he shouldn’t be allowed back inside the house, and made an excuse as to why they couldn’t bring him.

According to Williams, Murray then said that he was hungry and wanted to get something to eat, hinting at possibly getting a ride, but was again denied.

While on the stand, Williams characterized Murray’s demeanor while Jackson was being loaded into the ambulance as “[f]rantic;  I knew it was serious when I saw him.”

Williams went on to testify that, in the months prior to Jackson’s death, it was common to see oxygen tanks in the house, and that the tanks would be picked up from a facility and brought to the house at Murray’s request.

On cross-examination, Williams admitted to the defense that he had declined to initially tell police about Murray’s attempt to gain re-entry into Jackson’s home.

Update 11:06 a.m.: Michael Jackson’s personal assistant, Michael Williams, has taken the stand to testify about, among other things, the call he received from Dr. Conrad Murray on June 25, 2009, the day of Jackson’s death.

According to WIlliams, he missed Murray’s call at approximately 12:13 p.m. because he was in the shower, but heard the message when he got out of the shower minutes later.

“It was Dr. Murray; I can’t quote it exactly, but it was, “Call me right away, call me right away, thank you,” Williams testified.

When he called back, at about 12:15, Williams said, Murray replied, ” ‘Where are you?’ And I said I’m downtown.’  He said, ‘Get here right away; Mr. Jackson had a bad reaction.”

According to Williams, Murray said, “Get someone up here immediately.”

At no point in the message or during the subsequent phone call did Murray ask Williams to call 911, Williams said.

While on the stand, Williams said that Jackson was “in very good spirits” on the evening before his death.

Update 10:05 a.m.:  Cross-examined by defense attorney J. Michael Flanagan, Jorrie says that Murray characterized himself as Jackson’s personal physician, and never claimed that he s the only physician providing treatment to Jackson. Asked if the intention of the contract was to hold Murray to a full-time commitment to Jackson’s health, Jorrie said no, stating, “I don’t believe he was prohibited by the contract by doing other things at all.”

Update, 9:41 a.m.: Kathy Jorrie, attorney for concert promoter AEG Live, is on the stand for the prosecution. Jorrie testified that, while drawing up Murray’s contract for the concerts at O2 arena, the doctor requested that a CPR machine be provided. This caused Jorrie to question Murray about why such a machine might be needed. Murray told her that, due to Jackson’s age and the strenuous performances, it was a precaution.

“Dr. Murray repeatedly told me that [Michael Jackson is] in excellent condition,” Jorrie testified.

Jorrie also testified that Murray’s monthly fee for his services was $150,000 per month.

Previously…

The second day of the trial of Dr. Conrad Murray on manslaughter charges in the death of Michael Jackson gets underway on Wednesday, with new witnesses expected to provide fresh details in the case.

The pop singer’s personal assistant Michael Emir Williams is expected to testify today, as are the paramedics who arrived to the scene of his death.

In the courtroom on Tuesday as the trial opened, the jury was shown a never previously seen photo of Jackson’s corpse. They also heard a shocking audio file of Jackson, apparently drugged, that was taken from Murray’s iPhone.

Jackson’s voice echoed hauntingly through the packed courtroom:

“I want them to say, ‘I’ve never seen nothing like this in my life,'” he mumbled. “He’s the greatest entertainer of all time.”

Deputy Dist. Atty. David Walgren told jurors on Tuesday that the  audio file showed the physician had taped his patient “highly under the influence of unknown agents.”

He called the clip “a taste” of the full recording jurors are to hear later.

Taking the stand for the second day in a row is “This Is It” producer, Paul Gongaware, who began testifying yesterday about the singer’s last days and his dealings with Dr Murray.

At the preliminary hearing in January, Williams had called the day that Jackson died “just a horrible, crazy experience.”

Jackson died on June 25, 2009 of acute propophyl intoxication. Murray is charged with involuntary manslaughter for having administered drugs illegally, and having allegedly abandoned basic principles of medical care.

The trial is being aired by live feed, tune in to TheWrap to follow the proceedings:

Testificaron Michael Amir Williams, asistente del fallecido cantante, y Cathy Jorrie, encargada del contrato de MurrayVarios testigos claves que estuvieron cerca de Michael Jackson en sus últimas horas de vida comparecieron este día en el juicio que enfrenta Conrad Murray, ex médico personal del llamado “Rey del Pop”.En el segundo día, estuvieron el directivo de AEG, Paul Gongaware; el asistente personal de Jackson, Michael Williams; la abogada Cathy Jorrie, que se encargó del contrato que se le pagaría a Murray y más tarde se esperaba a los paramédicos que acudieron al llamado de emergencia.

En la audiencia celebrada en la Corte Superior de Los Angeles, Gongaware, que había iniciado su comparecencia este martes al final del día, éste declaró hoy que el acuerdo de pagarle 150 mil dólares a Murray como médico personal “era algo inusual”.

Gongaware, quien es directivo de la compañía promotora AEG Live, responsable de la gira de 50 conciertos en Londres que tendría Jackson, compartió que Murray había pedido un contrato de cinco millones de dólares.

El asistente personal de Jackson, Michael Williams, más adelante, compartió un mensaje desesperado que le dejó Murray en su buzón telefónico el día del deceso de Jackson y en donde le urgía que le devolviera la llamada de inmediato.

Williams, quien fue contratado desde el 2007 como asistente personal y que se encargaba de la agenda diaria, consideró que el día que Jackson murió fue una “horrible y loca experiencia”. También describió que la actuación de Murray “fue rara y extraña” y que después le explicó que Jackson “había tenido una mala reacción”.

En el interrogatorio, Williams identificó a los tres hijos de Jackson, Michael, Paris y Blanket, como los únicos inquilinos de la residencia rentada en Holmby Hills en el oeste de Los Angeles en donde sufrió la crisis Jackson.

Al final del día se espera la intervención de los paramédicos que acudieron al llamado de emergencia y que han declarado que para ellos Jackson ya estaba muerto antes de que lo llevaran al hospital.

Cathie Jorrie, la encargada de elaborar el contrato entre Murray y Jackson por 150 mil dólares, detalló el contenido de éste en donde quedaban establecidos los acuerdos de lo que percibiría el médico y lo que nunca recibió por el deceso.

Jorrie, empleada de AEG Live, aceptó que entre las cláusulas, Murray le pidió que se integrara a un equipo de CPR (Recuperación de emergencia) para la gira en Londres, aunque aseguró que su salud era excelente.

También pidió que en lugar de una asistente enfermera se contratara a otro médico para momentos en que él no pudiera estar presente.

Murray enfrenta un juicio por homicidio imprudencial y actuación negligente, en donde se ser hallado culpable enfrentaría una pena máxima de cuatro años y la pérdida de su licencia profesional.

Jorrie dijo que habló un día antes de la muerte de Jackson y que Murray le expresó que Jackson tenía una perfecta salud y también confirmó que aunque hubo contrato nunca se le pagó la suma a Murray de parte de AEG Live.

El proceso se espera que se prolongue de cuatro a cinco semanas antes de llegar a un veredicto.
