Coroner's investigator testifies about propofol in Jackson's room

A coroner's investigator testified Friday that she recovered a dozen bottles of propofol from the closet of Michael Jackson's bedroom, including an empty bottle found on the floor near his bed.

Propofol is the surgical anesthetic that the Los Angeles County coroner concluded killed Jackson when it was combined with sedatives given the pop star to help him.

Seven pill bottles containing prescription sedatives were found on the nightstand next to the bed where Jackson was sleeping, Coroner's Investigator Elissa Fleak said.

Fleak was the 16th witness to testify in the preliminary hearing to decide if the involuntary manslaughter case against Dr. Conrad Murray will go to trial.  The hearing is expected to last two or three weeks with 20 to 30 witnesses.

    Appreciate that intelligent post about MJ, especially since I was a big fan of his and was aware from the media that he had trouble sleeping. Great performer he was!

    @HelenHull102957: You've truly got to be the dumbest, most ignorant, uneducated hog in the land. I feel sorry for your husband if you have one. Now go into your closet and stay there until someone wants to make love to you, which is not until your next life-sorry hog face.

    Micheal rest in peace you were a great talent lost to a world that didnt completly understand you. OJ on the other hand guilty and when the kangaroo court found you innocent you just couldnt let it go. your book If I Did It was him laughing in the faces of his victims families. But he showed everyone what he's made of by commiting an armed robbery i suppose he's innocent of that too NOT!

    Actually the 14 (not 12) bottles of Propofol were not found in Jackson's home. They were found in Murray's home–officers acting on a tip searched Murray's home and discovered both the Propofol and other drugs that which were found in Michael Jackson's body.

    CNN should made a better effort to get its facts and stories correct.

    very misleading story, doesn't give readers the sense of how commonly used propofol is, and how small the doses are in each bottle. it also doesn't give the readers a sense of what medications were in those 7 bottles, that they were appropriate medications given jackson's history, and that they were actuallly being underutilized by jackson. the reason jackson died is the gross negligence of dr murray, who could have easily administered these drugs safely, and could have just as easily monitored and resuscitated the patient if needed. please try to give at least some thought as to how this story is reported.
