Photos of the Michael Jackson’s bedroom at the time of his death released [photo]
Katherine Jackson, mother of the late singer Michael Jackson is suing AEG live, claiming that the company failed to properly investigate doctor Conrad Murray.
Los Angeles police department released photos of the singer’s bedroom taken just after he died in 2009, reported Daily Mail.
The evidence pictures show numerous pills bottles, oxygen tanks and medical supplies scattered around his bedroom at the time of his death.
One of the images shows metal stand with a hanging bag of intravenous fluids attached.
The new set of images came as jurors in the Jackson case were shown an email on Monday in which the top executive at AEG Live LLC expressed grave concerns about treatments Jackson was receiving from his longtime dermatologist.
The email sent by AEG Live CEO Randy Phillips said the company was ‘scared to death’ of drug injections given to Jackson.
Phillips told jurors that the email was a response to a $48,000 bill that Jackson’s manager received for the treatments by Dr Arnold Klein.
‘He scares us to death because he is shooting him up with something,’ Phillips wrote.
The email was sent to Jackson’s business manager Michael Kane after the meeting held at the singer’s house to address his health and missed rehearsals.
The treatments included numerous shots of cosmetic drugs such as Restalyne and botox, as well as other unidentified intramuscular shots, Phillips said, citing the bill.
AEG denies any wrongdoing, and Phillips and other executives testified during the trial that it would have been inappropriate to ask about or intervene in Jackson’s medical care.
Phillips was told by a judge to answer questions posed by a lawyer for Katherine Jackson without arguing and that his demeanor might be hurting his case.
Jurors were sent from the courtroom before Superior Court Judge Yvette Palazuelos addressed Phillips, who has sparred with attorney Brian Panish throughout his testimony.
The lawyers have been repeatedly warned by the judge about the behavior.
“Arguing with the lawyers isn’t really going to help,” Palazuelos told Phillips. “It’s not going to help your case. It’s not going to help anybody.”
Phillips said Panish was repeatedly asking him questions about the same subject.
“I’m just trying not to say the wrong thing,” Phillips said.
The admonition by the judge came after Panish asked Phillips about characterizations of Murray that Phillips made in an email sent five days before the singer died.
Phillips acknowledged that some of the statements – including that AEG Live had checked out Murray and that the former cardiologist didn’t need the job – turned out not to be true.
When Panish asked if Phillips had acknowledged that some of his statements to the director of Jackson’s This Is It shows weren’t true, the executive said: “Honestly, only to stop you from badgering me, yes.”
Palazuelos briefly stopped the testimony and issued the warning.
Jessica Stebbins Bina, a defense attorney for AEG Live, said some of Panish’s questions had been argumentative. The judge disagreed.
Michael Jackson died at age 50, on June 25 2009. at his LA mansion. Dr. Murray was convicted in 2011 for involuntary manslaughter.
