Jackson Was Very Familiar With Propofol And Referred To It As His ‘Milk’

The King of Pop referred to drug propofol, which allegedly was the cause of his demise, as 'milk', reveal investigators looking into Michael Jackson's death.

The late singer's personal physician Dr. Conrad Murray is apparently a prime suspect in the case for administering the harmful drug, reports the Telegraph.

He "stated that Jackson was very familiar with the drug (propofol) and referred to it as his 'milk,'" Los Angeles Police Department detective Orlando Martinez wrote in a warrant affidavit unsealed in Houston, Texas this week.

The 'Thriller' singer was apparently suffering from insomnia, which made him consume a dangerous combination of drugs for sleep.

According to the affidavit, Dr Murray confessed to police that in order to help Jackson get some sleep, he administered intravenous injections of 50 milligrams of propofol every night for six weeks until he died on June 25.

The affidavit further reveals that on the day of his death "Jackson remained awake and at approximately 1040 hours, Murray finally administered 25 milligrams of propofol, diluted with lidocaine via IV drip to keep Jackson sedated, after repeated demands/requests from Jackson."

It adds that when he stopped breathing Murray was apparently in the bathroom.
