GUILTY OF INVOLUNTARY MANSLAUGHTER

The jury consisted of five women and seven men. They heard testimony during a 6-week trial. Conrad Murray did not take the stand to defend himself.

The trial was noteworthy for the multiple contempt rulings issued by the judge against Murray’s attorney and defense expert for repeatedly violating court orders. This included making improper statements to the media about the trial and witnesses, and attempting to introduce inadmissible evidence to the jury.

Here are brief biographical details of the jurors:

Male, 51, Hispanic, works for the US post office.
Male, 45, White, management consultant.
Male 32, White, actor.
Male 39, Hispanic, product management.
Male 52, Hispanic, school bus driver.
Male 54, Black, television technical director.
Male, 54, White, college professor.
Female, 57, White, account manager.
Female, 48, White, paralegal.
Female 54, Hispanic, office manager.
Female, 43, White, medical marketing.
Female, 36, Hispanic, workers compensation service representative.

Michael Jackson Song Hold My Hand http://michaeljacksonfuneral.org/michael-jackson-song-hold-my-hand/ http://michaeljacksonfuneral.org/michael-jackson-song-hold-my-hand/#comments Fri, 12 Nov 2010 17:09:29 +0000 Michael Jackson Funeral http://michaeljacksonfuneral.org/?p=511 Hold My Hand is the first officially released song from the new Michael Jackson album titled Michael.

Hold My Hand is a duet recorded between Michael Jackson and Akon. If you are not familiar with Akon, he is a producer and also a rapper.

The song was recorded in 2007

If you have heard the song before that is because an unfinished version was leaded on the Internet in 2008.

Recently, Akon finished production of the song for release on the new album.

Unlike the new song Breaking News, around which there is much controversy as to whether or not it is really Michael singing, there is no question that Michael Jackson is singing on this song: Hold My Hand

New Michael Jackson Album http://michaeljacksonfuneral.org/new-michael-jackson-album/ http://michaeljacksonfuneral.org/new-michael-jackson-album/#comments Sat, 06 Nov 2010 20:59:04 +0000 Michael Jackson Funeral http://michaeljacksonfuneral.org/?p=495 A new Michael Jackson album, simply titled “Michael” is scheduled to be released on December 14, 2010, by Epic Records and the Michael Jackson Estate.

New Michael Jackson Album

New Michael Jackson Album

The first song from the album, called “Breaking News” is scheduled to be streamed online for a short period of time, and then removed pending the release of the full album. See below for song.

The song “Breaking News” was recorded in New Jersey in 2007 and according to Sony “recently brought to completion.”

At this point, it is unclear exactly what “brought to completion” means.

According to Sony three to five of the songs to be released on the album were recorded by Michael Jackson in 2007 at the home of music producer Eddie Cascio. At the time, Michael and his kids were staying there while the 25th Anniversary edition of Thriller was being remixed.

However, Michael’s kids Prince Michael and Paris are saying the new songs do not match what they heard being recorded in 2007. They think the songs were done by a Michael Jackson sound alike.

Of course, given their ages and passage of a traumatic three years, who knows if they could identify the actual Eddie Cascio recordings.

Whatever was done in studio to “bring to completion” the record could also have affected what the kids are hearing.

Michael’s mother Katherine and his father Joe have also said they do not believe it is Michael singing the songs.

To rebut the family claims Sony had said they hired sound experts to authenticate it is Michael Jackson singing the songs.

Of course, Sony has not said it hired a sound alike.

So far, no word from Eddie Cascio.

Bottom line: We know there are many unreleased Michael Jackson songs. This will be the first album since his death. While it could be easy to claim nothing ever released in the future was done by Michael, it doesn’t make sense since we know songs exist. We also know Michael sang some version of the Cascio songs about to be released.

Here is the new Michael Jackson song Breaking News:

Enjoy the new album when it is released. And let the debate begin about whether you think Michael is singing or not. (Especially the first part of the song. Sound like Michael?)

Here are the song listings the album “Michael”:
1. Hold My Hand (Duet with Akon)
2. Hollywood Tonight
3. Keep Your Head Up
4. (I Like) The Way You Love Me
5. Monster (Featuring 50 Cent)
6. Best Of Joy
7. Breaking News
8. (I Can’t Make It) Another Day (Featuring Lenny Kravitz)
9. Behind The Mask
10. Much Too Soon

Joe Jackson Sues for Wrongful Death http://michaeljacksonfuneral.org/joe-jackson-sues-for-wrongful-death/ http://michaeljacksonfuneral.org/joe-jackson-sues-for-wrongful-death/#comments Fri, 25 Jun 2010 23:28:19 +0000 Michael Jackson Funeral http://michaeljacksonfuneral.org/?p=493 Joe Jackson filed a civil wrongful death lawsuit against Dr. Conrad Murray today.

The lawsuit was filed in the Los Angeles federal court. Although it has been reported that the lawsuit seeks more than $75,000 in damages, that figure is mentioned only because it is the minimum amount necessary to file in federal court for this type of case.

(If a lawsuit is between parties of different states, the amount at issue must exceed $75,000 to file in federal court.)

Here is the bizarre part about this …. something not picked up by the general media:

In federal court a civil jury verdict must be unanimous.

Joe Jackson could have filed in California state court, where only 9 of 12 jurors must reach a decision.

Moreover, the downtown state courthouse in Los Angeles is known in legal circles as the ‘cash register’ – not just because of how it looks, but how verdicts can be awarded.

Maybe Jackson’s attorney believed he couldn’t get the downtown courthouse because of where MJ lived. But choosing federal court over state court is an odd decision. California wrongful death law will be applied, not federal law.

We’ll see how this turns out.

Conrad Murray Indictment http://michaeljacksonfuneral.org/conrad-murray-indictment/ http://michaeljacksonfuneral.org/conrad-murray-indictment/#comments Fri, 08 Jan 2010 19:42:59 +0000 Michael Jackson Funeral http://michaeljacksonfuneral.org/?p=487 The Los Angeles District Attorney’s office is apparently preparing to move forward with an indictment and criminal charges against Conrad Murray.

Conrad Murray is a cardiologist with offices in Houston and Las Vegas and Houston. Murray was supposed to take care of Michael Jackson in preparation for the London “This Is It” tour.

Murray was in Michael Jackson’s home when Michael died. Conrad supposedly tried to revive Michael after finding him unconscious.

The Michael Jackson autopsy found he died from acute propofol intoxication. Propofol is a medication that is supposed to be given and overseen by a medical professional. The only known medical professional present was Conrad Murray.

Michael Jackson FBI Files http://michaeljacksonfuneral.org/michael-jackson-fbi-files/ http://michaeljacksonfuneral.org/michael-jackson-fbi-files/#comments Wed, 23 Dec 2009 00:11:39 +0000 Michael Jackson Funeral http://michaeljacksonfuneral.org/?p=484 The FBI has started to release its files about Michael Jackson.

Nothing real exciting so far.

The Santa Maria Police Department in 2004 asked the FBI for help, believing that Michael Jackson’s court case would be a “soft target” for terrorism. This was due to the “worldwide media coverage” for the trial. The FBI decided that there were no threats.

Also in 2004, the Santa Barbara County district attorney’s office asked for the FBI’s assistance in trying to prosecute Michael. After investigating and reviewing the case notes and Michael’s computers, the FBI found nothing of interest. Michael Jackson was later acquitted of criminal charges.

The files also refer to numerous death threats against Michael Jackson and other celebrities and politicians.

Lisa Marie Presley at Michael Jackson Funeral http://michaeljacksonfuneral.org/lisa-marie-presley-at-michael-jackson-funeral/ http://michaeljacksonfuneral.org/lisa-marie-presley-at-michael-jackson-funeral/#comments Fri, 18 Sep 2009 01:50:20 +0000 Michael Jackson Funeral http://michaeljacksonfuneral.org/?p=479 There have been quite a few questions about whether Lisa Marie Presley (Michael Jackson’s former wife), was at the July public memorial service held at the Staples Center, or at the September burial at Forest Lawn.

Lisa Marie Presley was not at the public funeral service for Michael Jackson.

She was, however, present during his private entombment at Forest Lawn.

This statement was released by Lisa Marie Presley shortly after Michael Jackson’s death:

Friday, June 26, 2009

Years ago Michael and I were having a deep conversation about life in general.

I can’t recall the exact subject matter but he may have been questioning me about the circumstances of my Fathers Death.

At some point he paused, he stared at me very intensely and he stated with an almost calm certainty, ‘I am afraid that I am going to end up like him, the way he did.’

I promptly tried to deter him from the idea, at which point he just shrugged his shoulders and nodded almost matter of fact as if to let me know, he knew what he knew and that was kind of that.

14 years later I am sitting here watching on the news an ambulance leaves the driveway of his home, the big gates, the crowds outside the gates, the coverage, the crowds outside the hospital, the Cause of death and what may have led up to it and the memory of this conversation hit me, as did the unstoppable tears.
A predicted ending by him, by loved ones and by me, but what I didn’t predict was how much it was going to hurt when it finally happened. The person I failed to help is being transferred right now to the LA County Coroners office for his Autopsy.

All of my indifference and detachment that I worked so hard to achieve over the years has just gone into the bowels of hell and right now I am gutted.

I am going to say now what I have never said before because I want the truth out there for once.

Our relationship was not ‘a sham’ as is being reported in the press. It was an unusual relationship yes, where two unusual people who did not live or know a ‘Normal life’ found a connection, perhaps with some suspect timing on his part. Nonetheless, I do believe he loved me as much as he could love anyone and I loved him very much.

I wanted to ‘save him”; I wanted to save him from the inevitable which is what has just happened.

His family and his loved ones also wanted to save him from this as well but didn’t know how and this was 14 years ago. We all worried that this would be the outcome then.

At that time, In trying to save him, I almost lost myself.

He was an incredibly dynamic force and power that was not to be underestimated.

When he used it for something good, It was the best and when he used it for something bad, It was really, REALLY bad.

Mediocrity was not a concept that would even for a second enter Michael Jackson’s being or actions.

I became very ill and emotionally/ spiritually exhausted in my quest to save him from certain self-destructive behavior and from the awful vampires and leeches he would always manage to magnetize around him.

I was in over my head while trying.

I had my children to care for, I had to make a decision.

The hardest decision I have ever had to make, which was to walk away and let his fate have him, even though I desperately loved him and tried to stop or reverse it somehow.

After the Divorce, I spent a few years obsessing about him and what I could have done different, in regret.

Then I spent some angry years at the whole situation.

At some point, I truly became Indifferent, until now.

As I sit here overwhelmed with sadness, reflection and confusion at what was my biggest failure to date, watching on the news almost play by play The exact Scenario

I saw happen on August 16th, 1977 happening again right now with Michael (A sight I never wanted to see again) just as he predicted, I am truly, truly gutted.

Any ill experience or words I have felt towards him in the past has just died inside of me along with him.

He was an amazing person and I am lucky to have gotten as close to him as I did and to have had the many experiences and years that we had together.

I desperately hope that he can be relieved from his pain, pressure and turmoil now.

He deserves to be free from all of that and I hope he is in a better place or will be.

I also hope that anyone else who feels they have failed to help him can be set free because he hopefully finally is.

The World is in shock but somehow he knew exactly how his fate would be played out some day more than anyone else knew, and he was right.

I really needed to say this right now, thanks for listening.

~LMP
