The official cause of Michael Jackson’s death has just been released by the L.A. Coroner’s Office and it is Acute Propofol intoxication, which has been the speculation for some time now, which makes the case a homicide. The full report, including the complete toxicology report, is still on security hold by request of the LAPD.
Here is part of the report:
The drugs PROPOFOL and LORAZEPAM (Ativan) were found to be the primary drugs responsible for Mr. Jackson’s death.
Other drugs detected were: Midazolam (Versed), Diazepam (Valium), Lidocaine (topical anesthetic) and Ephedrine (used to treat hypotension associated with anesthesia).
The investigation continues into Dr. Conrad Murray and this report officially makes him the main suspect in a homicide investigation, which I imagine will allow authorities to ramp up their investigation efforts even further.
There will be a private ceremony on September 3rd to lay Michael Jackson to rest. It will only include family and close friends and will take place at Glendale Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, California.
