L.A. prosecutor says defense will claim Michael Jackson killed himself in trial for Dr. Conrad Murray
Defense attorneys for Dr. Conrad Murray will argue Michael Jackson killed himself, Los Angeles County prosecutor David Walgren claimed today at a hearing, according to an Associated Press report. Walgren and Murray’s lawyer J. Michael Flanagan were in court arguing over testing residue from syringes found in the pop star’s bedroom. “I do think it’s clear the defense is operating under the theory that the victim, Michael Jackson, killed himself,” said Walgren. “They don’t want to say it, but that’s the direction in which they are going.” Flanagan declined to comment. A preliminary hearing for Murray’s involuntary manslaughter trial begins Jan. 4.
When Jim Morrison was posthumously pardoned by the State of Florida on Dec. 9, nearly 40 years after his conviction for indecent exposure at a 1969 concert in Miami, it seemed as if that episode was finally put to rest. But the surviving members of the Doors — Ray Manzarek, John Densmore, and Robbie Krieger — and the Morrison family insist that a pardon should never have been necessary in the first place. In a statement, the group said, “We don’t feel Jim needs to be pardoned for anything. His performance in Miami that night was certainly provocative, and entirely in the insurrectionary spirit of the Doors’ music and message. The charges against him were largely an opportunity for grandstanding by ambitious politicians — not to mention an affront to free speech and a massive waste of time and taxpayer dollars … If the State of Florida and the City of Miami want to make amends for the travesty of Jim Morrison’s arrest and prosecution 40 years after the fact, an apology would be more appropriate — and expunging the whole sorry matter from the record…”
