Sounds and images from Michael Jackson’s life and death played a key role yesterday in the manslaughter trial of his doctor, with jurors hearing a recording of the the King of Pop speaking in a slurred voice and viewing a photo of his dead body.
Stephen Marx, a computer forensic examiner who was working for the Drug Enforcement Administration but has since retired, testified that he found the recording under the iTalk application on Murray's iPhone, which was turned over to authorities on July 28, 2009. The prosecution witness said he also discovered a June 20, 2009, voice mail on Murray's iPhone in which a man identifying himself as Jackson's manager, Frank Dileo, says, "I'm sure you're aware he had an episode last night. He's sick ... I think you need to get a blood test on him. We (have) got to see what he's doing."
Nicole Alvarez, 29, one of Murray's girlfriends and the mother of one of the doctor's seven children, took the witness stand. According to Alvarez, Murray called her when he rode in ambulance with the lifeless body of Jackson on June 25 2009. "I remember him telling me that he was on the way to the hospital in an ambulance with Mr. Jackson and not to be alarmed," Alvarez said. "He was worried I would hear about it."
The defense lawyer of Conrad Murray, Michael Jackson's doctor, alleged, that a crime scene investigator did shoddy work while she was examining the star's bed. Attorney Chernoff grilled Fleak, trying to give her troubles by aggressively questioning on her investigative skills. Questioning Fleak on her practice of destroying investigation notes after she writes her official reports and her method of photographing evidence at Jackson's home, Chernoff appeared to have partially succeeded in his goal: Under cross-examination, Fleak conceded that no investigation is without its flaws.
