According to the Daily Mail, the documentary began filming in November 2009, five months after MJ's death in June, and features a series of exclusive interviews with the doctor. In one chilling moment, Murray describes the last minutes of Michael's life, and the alleged last words of the musical idol.
"He was pleading and begging to please please let him have some milk because that was the only thing that would work," said Murray, referring to propofol, the anaesthetic that Michael eventually overdosed on.
Defending his dosing strategy of the lethal prescription, Murray claims: "He [Michael] really could not sleep. Have you ever seen the 'Thriller' image when he was made up? He looked that hysterical."
Sadly, that final dose proved to be a huge misstep, as the doctor described the scene after Michael lost consciousness. "I told security to get the kids away from there, get the kids away because I did not want them to see their father getting CPR," says Murray. "And he (the security guard) says, 'Doctor, doctor, what happened?' I need help! I'm doing CPR, Mr Jackson's not breathing! Call 911! I need you to call 911!"
The now-disgraced doctor goes on to describe his loving relationship with MJ, perhaps in an attempt to downplay his role in the King of Pop's death. "He [Jackson] said of all my life I have found one friend, which is you, Dr Conrad. He had a dad who never hugged him, never hugged his own children. He lived a life greater than 100 years of pain, only human on Earth.' says Murray.
Currently, Jackson's private physician is being held in solitary confinement in the medical wing of Los Angeles County Jail due of fears he could be targeted by other inmates. There are also reports Murray has been under suicide watch since the guilty verdict came in. He'll return to court on November 29 for sentencing. In the meantime, TMZ is reporting today that MJ's death bed is going up for auction on Dec. 17.
