"If the equipment were at his house to preserve his life, Michael Jackson could have been saved," said Oxman. "I think that Dr. Murray bears responsibility, but I don't think that his is the only responsibility here."
Jackson's autopsy report states the cause of death as "acute propofol intoxication" -- similar to what would be given for major surgery. But Murray says he only gave Jackson a small dose of propofol, 25 milligrams.
"There was a massive amount of propofol in Michael Jackson's body, inconsistent with the amount Murray told police he gave him," said Harvey Levin of TMZ. "There were only two people in the room. Michael Jackson and Conrad Murray. So Conrad Murray's fate seems to lie in the theory that Michael Jackson gave himself the fatal dose."
And that will probably be the defense strategy later this year, when Murray goes on trial. The question is: Will the argument be enough to create reasonable doubt?
For now, Murray is laying low. He says he lost not only a patient -- but a friend.
