A witness to Michael Jackson’s tragic death has made an explosive charge against Dr. Conrad Murray.
Michael’s former logistics director, Alberto Alvarez, claims Dr. Conrad Murray stopped performing CPR on the singer and waited to call paramedics so that he could round up drugs at the scene of the singer’s demise.
According to a statement obtained by the Associated Press, Alberto rushed to Michael’s room after getting a distressed call from the Mijac’s personal assistant. When he got there, he found Conrad performing CPR on the pop icon with one hand and saying, "Alberto, Alberto, come quickly. He had a reaction, he had a bad reaction."
Alberto alleges that Conrad then stopped trying to resuscitate Michael in order to pick up vials of drugs in the singer’s room, telling the logistics director to dump them in a bag. Reportedly, Conrad also told Alberto to remove Michael’s IV drip and put it in a separate bag.
Allegedly, Conrad didn’t call emergency crews until after all evidence of an overdose was hidden.
Michael’s eldest children were said to have come into the room at some point while Conrad was performing CPR, but they were quickly removed.
Conrad’s lawyer, Ed Chernoff, is denying the claims made against his client, simply stating, "He wasn’t putting bottles in a bag and trying to hide them. We are confident that a fair trial will ferret out the truth."
