On August 29, 2011 an explanation of Conrad Murray's defense witness list was filed in L.A. Superior Court. A big thanks to Bridgett, who provided the link here to the document. Since we all know that Judge Pastor has barred many of the witnesses from testifying, we'll just examine four of the witnesses were ARE allowed to testify.
1. Dr. Allen Metzger:
This claim in itself is completely false according to police reports contained in Conrad Murray's search warrant affidavit. Murray claims that he administered Propofol for six weeks. This means that Murray started administering propofol on approximately May 14, 2009. This is an entire month AFTER the defense claims Dr. Metzger administered propofol to Jackson, IF TRUE AT ALL.
2. Dr. David Adams:
Dr. Adams is an ANESTHESIOLOGIST who administered propofol to Michael Jackson four times for dental procedures. Both the defense and the prosecution agree that Adams only administered propofol to Jackson four times. However, their timelines do not agree, as the defense claims Adams administered propofol in March or April, 2009, yet Adams claims in court documents he last worked on Jackson in December, 2008.
3. Cherilyn Lee
According to Lee's website, she is a holistic integrated health practioner. The defense wants to portray Jackson as a drug addicted, desperate man whose focus was on hunting for propofol, in a desperate attempt to fight insomina. However, Cherilyn Lee told Access Hollywood in July, 2009, that “Mr. Jackson did not present himself as a drug addict and from January to April, I didn’t see that in him,” Lee told Access. “Even when it came to the Diprivan, he was looking for something that was going to help him sleep." Cherilyn Lee is stating what Jackson fans already know; that Jackson was not a drug addict, underscored by his autopsy report that showed no drugs in his system at the time of death other than propofol, lidocaine and a trace amount of a benzodiazepine.
4. Karen Faye
Karen Faye was Michael Jackson's longtime stylist. Faye maintains that Jackson was weak, frail and drug addicted in the week prior to his death. However, Jackson's autopsy report states otherwise. At death, Michael Jackson weighed 136 pounds and had no drugs in his system other than propofol, lidocaine and a trace amount of benzodiazepine.
Faye also maintains that Jackson was upset about the amount of shows that he was contracted to do with AEG Live for the This Is It tour. Yet, the Lloyd's of London policy, issued to AEG Live for Michael Jackson, indicates that the contract was originally for 30 shows, not 10.
Lastly, for those who intimate that Jackson was wearing heavy coats, while the backup dancers and musicians were wearing shorts sleeves, apparently this was a habit for Michael. See this video, during the Bad Tour, Michael is wearing a coat, while the others are in mere sleeves. (Thanks, my friend, for pointing this out.)
