Riddled With Drugs

Dr Dan Anderson, the LA coroner's toxicologist, has testified at the trial of Dr Conrad Murray and stated that he detected significant amounts of the drugs propofol, lidocaine and lorazepam in Michael Jackson's body.
Dr Anderson took eight specimens, including samples from the heart, liver, stomach and urine; all of which showed significant amounts of sedatives and propofol.

However, the coroner's investigator Elissa Fleak (who went through Jackson's bedroom after his death) was savaged by Dr Murray's lawyer, Ed Chernoff, who asked:

"Would you agree with me that you made a substantial number of mistakes in your investigation?''

Ms Fleak, whilst denying that, did admit to the fact that her original hand-written notes were destroyed when they were transferred into an official report (this being the norm).

Mr Chernoff questioned Ms Fleak on her assertion that a bottle of propofol was found inside an IV bag, because Ms Fleak admitted that in her original notes she did not mention finding the propofol bottle inside the IV bag.

However, she strenuously denied suggestions that she had changed her findings to make them fit in with another witness.

Dr Murray's defence team claim that Jackson took the final extra, fatal dose of the drug once Dr Murray was out of the room.

The trial continues.
