Michael Jackson’s tragic final words before lethal overdose were revealed by doctor

It’s astonishing to realize that 15 years have passed since the death of one of the most iconic entertainers of all time, Michael Jackson.

Jackson’s life was marked by tremendous achievements and troubling controversies, making him a figure of both admiration and debate. Despite this, his groundbreaking contributions to music and performance have solidified his place among legends like Elvis Presley and The Beatles.

On June 25, 2009, the world was stunned by the news of Michael Jackson’s sudden death. The King of Pop was in the midst of preparing for a 50-date residency in the UK when he died at his Los Angeles home. His personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, reported that Jackson had stopped breathing and appeared to suffer cardiac arrest shortly after being given a large dose of propofol and benzodiazepine to help him sleep.

Despite urgent medical efforts, Jackson could not be revived and was pronounced dead two hours after the 911 call.

The news devastated millions of fans globally, and following an investigation and autopsy, Dr. Murray was charged with involuntary manslaughter.

During the trial, Murray’s defense argued that Jackson had taken eight lorazepam tablets on his own the night of his death, which Murray had not administered.

“When Dr. Murray left the room, Jackson self-administered a dose of propofol that, with the lorazepam, created a perfect storm in his body that ultimately killed him,” his defense team claimed.

“The whole thing is tragic, but the evidence is not that Dr. Murray did it.”

Despite these arguments, the prosecution concluded that Murray’s negligence had cost Jackson his life, leading to Murray’s four-year prison sentence.

Now, 15 years later, Jackson’s final tragic words have resurfaced, as recounted by Dr. Murray.

During his trial, Murray testified that Jackson had begged for “milk,” his term for the anesthetic propofol.

As reported by the LA Times, Murray shared Jackson’s plea: “[Jackson] said, ‘Please, please, give me some milk so that I can sleep, because I know that this is all that really works for me.’

“This is just a medicine that he was familiar with, it’s called propofol.

“He said ‘Just make me sleep, doesn’t matter what time I get up.’

“I agreed at that time that I would switch over to the propofol.”

Murray explained that after administering the drug, he left Jackson’s bedside for two minutes to use the bathroom. When he returned, Jackson had stopped breathing.
