(Newser) – Conrad Murray told police he gave Michael Jackson a powerful IV drip hours before he died, but authorities suspect the doctor dozed off only to awaken and find the singer already dead of heart failure, reports TMZ. Experts consider it “reckless” to administer Propofol without using an EKG to keep tabs on a patient; no such device was found in the house.
