The news byte that won’t go away…

Good afternoon, Netizens…

You may have thought you had heard the last of Michael Jackson’s homicide, or at least the last of the allegations of how and why he died.

Well, the coroner’s report, while not publicly disclosed, at least is cited as giving the reason Michael Jackson died. He died of too much medicine. The lawyers have been summoned and it still may take decades before they are through nursing on Jackson’s financial empire and Jackson’s doctor(s).

LOS ANGELES —AP—  Michael Jackson’s death was a homicide caused primarily by the powerful anesthetic propofol and another sedative, the coroner announced Friday in a highly anticipated ruling that increases the likelihood of criminal charges against the pop star’s personal doctor.

The Los Angeles County coroner’s office determined the cause of death was “acute propofol intoxication.” Other sedatives contributed to the death, most notably lorazepam, sold under the brand name Ativan. Additional drugs detected in Jackson’s system were midazolam, diazepam, lidocaine and ephedrine.
