Michael Jackson begged for his “milk,” his nickname for propofol, after a sleepless night and just hours before he died from what the coroner said was an overdose of the surgical anesthetic, the singer’s doctor Conrad Murray told detectives.
“I’ve got to sleep, Dr. Conrad,” Murray said Jackson pleaded to him. “I have these rehearsals to perform. I must be ready for the show in England. Tomorrow, I will have to cancel my performance, because you know I cannot function if I don’t get to sleep.”
Jurors in Murray’s involuntary manslaughter trial heard about half of the two-hour police interview on Friday, before going home for a three-day weekend.
Los Angeles Police Det. Scott Smith, one of two investigators who questioned Murray, is heard telling Murray at the start that he would make the interview “as painless and as quick as possible.”
The audio recording, however, was too much for Michael Jackson’s oldest sister, Rebbie. After she whispered to a bailiff, she walked into the jury box, next to the alternate jurors, and through the middle of the courtroom to the exit.
