In what’s been the most anticipated evidence in the trial, the prosecution played the jury Dr. Murray’s interview with LAPD detectives, recorded 2 days after MJ died. The interview has never been played in public before, nor has a transcript of its contents been released.
The day of the interview, Murray told the detectives he arrived at Jackson’s rented mansion at 12:50 AM on June 25, and headed straight to Michael’s room to wait for him to come home after rehearsals. According to Murray, Jackson arrived at 1:05 AM saying he was tired. Murray gave MJ a 10 mg Valium pill. Michael couldn’t sleep, so Murray says he then gave him 2 mg of the anti-anxiety drug, Lorazepam.
