Jackson doctor ordered gallons of killer drug


Michael Jackson’s doctor faced mounting scrutiny Wednesday after a pharmacist said he had ordered over 250 vials of a powerful sedative in the two months before the star’s 2009 overdose death. Pharmacist Tim Lopez said on Tuesday that Conrad Murray, on trial for involuntary manslaughter, never told him he was Jackson’s personal physician and did not say who the sedative, known as propofol, was for.
Murray placed the orders for the drug, and a number of other medications including a skin-whitening cream, with his company Applied Pharmacy Services, Lopez told the Los Angeles Superior Court. He also said Murray did not tell him that the address to which he was shipping the orders was not a Los Angeles clinic he ran, as suggested, but was the apartment of his mistress in Santa Monica.
