Friday’s episode of the Michael Jackson/Conrad Murray trial featured a medic who said that things didn’t add up when he was called to save MJ’s life. Paramedic Richard Senneff testified that when he showed up to MJ’s house, he saw a skinny man on the floor with his eyes open with a surgical cap on his head. His skin was turning blue. When he asked Murray what Michael’s condition was, Senneff told the jury that Murray said, “Nothing. He has nothing.”
The medic said that over the course of the 42 minutes, Murray gave few details about what he had done. He only said he had given MJ a dose of the sedative lorazepam to help him sleep, but there were bottles of medicine on Jackson’s nightstand. Murray then jumped in and said he was treating Michael for dehydration and exhaustion. Murray never mentioned that he had been giving Jackson propofol and other sedatives.
When Murray’s attorney asked Senneff whether Michael Jackson’s appearance was the same as with someone who was a drug addict, he said that was a hard decision to make, but he did think MJ looked like he had a chronic health problem. Another paramedic testified that he saw three open bottles of lidocaine on the floor of the room but Murray never mentioned giving Michael Jackson the painkiller. He then saw the doctor scoop up the vials and drop them in a black bag.
