“The fact [of the way] that he died was a mystery a year ago, and still is,” Houston attorney Ed Chernoff told CNN.
Dr. Conrad Murray was back in Court today. Also present were several members of Jackson's family, including his mother Katherine and father Joseph. Members of Jackson's family have attended each hearing since Murray's arrest in February.
The Los Angeles County Coroner's office determined that Jackson, 50, died as a result of acute propofol intoxication. A judge says a preliminary hearing for the doctor charged in the death of pop legend Michael Jackson will begin on Jan. 4.
After hearing from both sides in the case at the January court date, the judge, Michael Pastor, will determine if there is enough evidence to mount a full trial. Pastor granted a protective order covering all evidence in the criminal case, meaning it cannot be released to anyone other than the lawyers, paralegals and investigators in the case.
Murray's defense team reportedly asked for access to three fluids collected by the coroner's office, including ones taken from syringes and an IV tube to re-examine test results. Pastor ruled that the coroner's office must preserve the samples, and if defense attorneys and prosecutors cannot agree on the request, he will schedule a hearing on the matter.
The success of a criminal case against Murray could hinge largely on the timeline of events that occurred inside Jackson's rented home The Carolwood Property http://tinyurl.com/2dy2jv2 (scene of the crime) is currently up for sale. http://twitpic.com/2cwfx1
When brother Jermaine Jackson left the last hearing in June, he indicated some of them were not satisfied with the case against Murray.
"Dr. Murray's the fall guy," Jermaine Jackson said after the hearing. "This is bulls**t."
"The greatest triumphs of propaganda have been accomplished, not by doing something, but by refraining from doing," Aldous Huxley observed long ago.
"Great is truth, but still greater, from a practical point of view, is silence about truth."
