The former LA Deputy DA, Hamid Towfigh appeared on HLN yesterday to discuss the Conrad Murray trial with Jane Velez-Mitchell. Towfigh discussed the charge that Conrad Murray is being tried for, and also went over specifics of what was found in Michael Jackson’s room and why it would have been impossible for the star to inject himself with the lethal amount of propofol that was responsible for his passing.
Towfigh, when asked by Jane Velez-Mitchell about the defense arguing that Michael Jackson injected himself with propofol — said that it would be impossible for Jackson to do so. He explained: “According to the coroner’s report, Michael Jackson had a general anesthiea levels of propofol levels in his blood. If you ask most anesthisologists, they will say that that is about 200mg or higher of propofol. The syringes that were in the room of Michael Jackson were 10cc syringes which is the equivalent of 100mg. That means that he would have had to inject himself twice — 200 mg of propofol to get the levels that the coroners said he had.” He went on to state: “That is not possible because after the first dose that Michael Jackson supposedly gave himself, he would have passed out.”
It remains to be seen what will be revealed once more witnesses are called to testify, and what will be explained, but it is clear that there is much that remains a mystery, and there is a huge amount of people hoping to see what takes place as this trial unfolds.
