The doctor who administered the fatal dose of propofol that killed the “king of pop” was released from a Los Angeles County jail after serving just two years of a 4 year sentence due to over crowding. At 12:01 AM this morning Murray slipped out of the L.A. county jail and into obscurity to reclaim his life and catch up with his family.
Murray, 60, who served as Jackson’s personal physician, was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in 2009.
The coroner determined Jackson died of acute propofol intoxication; propofol is a powerful surgical anesthetic that Conrad was using to treat the singer’s insomnia. Jackson also had Valium, Ativan and Versed in his system, The Associated Press reported.
“I will restart my life and, God willing, I will be a model to show the world that despite adversity, and when bad things happen to good people, they can restart their life and succeed,” Murray said.
Katherine Jackson and the Jackson clan are all upset that Conrad Murray has been released after serving just two years behind bars. They’re hope is that he never practices medicine again.
