CONRAD Murray has changed his story of events surrounding the alleged death of Michael Jackson.
The physician — who has pleaded not guilty to the involuntary manslaughter of the pop star — has claimed he made “a mistake” during his first interview with the Los Angeles Police Department and admitted he was wrong about what happened following the "death" of the ‘Thriller’ singer.
“Dr. Murray’s timeline of events that day when Michael Jackson died is wrong,” said Murray’s lawyer, Michael Flanagan. “Doctors make mistakes, and that is what he did, and it was simply just that, a mistake.”
In Murray’s initial interview with police, he claimed he gave Michael the powerful sedative Propofol at 10.50am, left the house for a couple of minutes to visit the toilet, and returned to find Michael unconscious.
After trying to revive Michael with CPR, Murray left it over an hour to call emergency services at 12.21pm — during which time he telephoned another patient of his, Bob Russell, to discuss the results of a heart scan.
However, according to Flanagan, Murray has admitted he made a mistake about the sequence of events, and is keen to rectify this before he is in court.
Murray’s timeline of events are expected to be the basis of his upcoming court case, and these changes are significant to both prosecution and defense.
