Jackson doctor is ‘suicidal’

2011-11-16 10:57

Los Angeles – Dr Conrad Murray is reportedly suicidal.

The doctor – who was found guilty of the involuntary manslaughter of Michael Jackson last week – has been remanded in custody until his sentencing on November 29 and is said to have told visitors including former girlfriend Nicole Alvarez, his bodyguard Jeff, and his legal team, that he doesn’t want to live because the trial verdict came as a shock to him.

According to gossip website TMZ, Murray has been in the medical ward at Los Angeles County Jail for the majority of his incarceration so far but has no physical ailments.

Suicide watch
Steve Whitmore, the spokesperson for the LA County Sheriff’s Department refused to be drawn on the claims, explaining: “A person’s medical or mental health status in the Los Angeles County Jail is protected under the law.”

After Murray was found guilty last Monday, it was reported he had been placed on suicide watch and deemed a “keep away inmate”, meaning jail officials will take special precautions to keep him safe, including giving him a single cell for his own protection.

Murray will be sentenced on November 29 and faces a maximum of four years in prison.

Michael died of acute Propofol intoxication in June 2009.
