LOS ANGELES – A coroner’s investigator says she found 12 bottles of the anesthetic propofol in Michael Jackson’s’ bedroom and an adjacent closet.
Investigator Elissa Fleak testified Friday that nine of the bottles were found in a bag labeled “Baby Essentials” in the closet.
She says the anesthetic and other medications were found during a search of Jackson’s rented mansion four days after his death in 2009.
The testimony came during a preliminary hearing where a judge will decide if there is enough evidence for Dr. Conrad Murray to stand trial for involuntary manslaughter. He has pleaded not guilty.
Authorities contend Jackson died after Murray gave him a lethal dose of propofol and other sedatives in the bedroom then delayed calling emergency services while he collected and bagged medications.
