The fight against insomnia killed the legend: the last hours of Michael Jackson's life became known

The last hours of Michael Jackson's life became known

The legendary pop singer Michael Jackson died on June 25, 2009, due to cardiac arrest, but if he had not tried to "cure" insomnia, he might still be delighting fans with new hits. In the last hours before his death, Conrad Murray's personal physician injected him with three sedatives, which caused his cardiac arrest.

According to the Daily Star, citing a report, a few months before his death, the artist asked his then-nurse, Sherrilyn Lee, to inject him with sedatives used for anesthesia. Because of this, the woman had to create a chronicle where she recorded all the medications. The first record of the use of the anesthetic propofol is dated Easter Sunday, April 12, 2009.

The artist called this medicine "milk" because of the white color of the substance. Over time, the nurse began to worry about Jackson's drug addiction, so she warned him about a mild but fatal overdose. According to the source, the singer rejected all pleas to stop.

In May, the star hired another personal physician, Conrad Murray, and he agreed because he was promised a salary of $150,000 a month. He injected propofol every night to help Jackson sleep better. It was then that the artist became even more addicted to the drug and could not properly prepare for upcoming concerts without an additional dose.

Two weeks before his death, Jackson did not show up for rehearsals, but on June 19, he was seen in class, but in a terrible state. According to concert manager John Hoagdahl, he was shocked to see the artist shaking and confused. During that time, to calm the singer's strange state, they began to inject him with anesthetic again, but 2 days before his heart stopped, Jackson "was a completely different person."

On the evening of June 24, he was having a quiet dinner with his three children: sons Prince and Blanket (nicknamed Biggie) and daughter Paris. Later, he went to another rehearsal and returned home at night. In the morning, Murray started injecting drugs again to calm the singer down. By 5 a.m., he had injected 16 milligrams of three different drugs, and 5 hours later he injected his "favorite" propofol, giving him an incredibly high 25-milligram dose.

The effect was expected: Jackson dozed off, and his heartbeat began to slow down. So much so that his heart finally stopped, and at 14:26 paramedics pronounced him dead.

Only 2 years later, Conrad Murray was found guilty of manslaughter and sent to prison for 4 years. However, already in 2013, the man was released due to overcrowding in prisons and for exemplary behavior.
