LOS ANGELES — A lawyer for the doctor who was with Michael Jackson when he died says the physician found the entertainer in his bed with a faint pulse.
Houston attorney Edward Chernoff said tolday that Dr. Conrad Murray went into Jackson’s bedroom and saw that he wasn’t breathing.
Chernoff said Jackson was still warm and had a faint pulse and that the doctor immediately began administering CPR.
Chernoff said Murray suggested to Jackson’s family that an autopsy be performed. He added that the doctor did not prescribe or give Jackson the drugs Demerol or Oxycontin. The lawyer said any drugs Murray prescribed were given in response to a specific complaint from the 50-year-old entertainer.
Three of Jackson’s brothers made a return to the pop star’s Neverland Ranch today, where they walked the manicured grounds and reminisced about his life.
It’s not clear what will become of the ranch, which has been under renovations.
Owen Blicksilver, a spokesman for the joint venture that owns the ranch and includes Michael Jackson, said it’s premature to discuss the future of Neverland.
But he said investor Thomas Barrack feels close to family members and wants to hear their thoughts on how best to honor Jackson’s memory.
Blicksilver said Jackie, Jermaine and Tito Jackson were joined for lunch Saturday at the sprawling Santa Barbara County property by Barrack, who previously set up the joint venture with Michael Jackson after the singer nearly lost the ranch to foreclosure.
