The defense lawyer of Conrad Murray, Michael Jackson's doctor, alleged, that a crime scene investigator did shoddy work while she was examining the star's bed. Attorney Chernoff grilled Fleak, trying to give her troubles by aggressively questioning on her investigative skills. Questioning Fleak on her practice of destroying investigation notes after she writes her official reports and her method of photographing evidence at Jackson's home, Chernoff appeared to have partially succeeded in his goal: Under cross-examination, Fleak conceded that no investigation is without its flaws.
A toxicologist, Dan Anderson, testified that Propofol was found in the singer's blood, urine and liver when he died. Besides, Jackson's body also contained Lidocaine and Lorazepam, which Murray said he gave to Jackson as a sleep aid, before he administered Propofol. According to authorities, Jackson died of acute Propofol intoxication combined with other sedatives. Murray is accused of giving MJ an overdose of the lethal anesthetic without adequate safeguards.
However, defense attorneys said Jackson is to be blamed for his own death because the singer took the drug himself to enable him to sleep, after Murray left his room. But the prosecutors said, Thursday, there's no Jackson's fingerprints on any of the syringes, vials or other medical paraphernalia in the crime scene, which rebuts the defense's theory.
