Reports indicated that MICHAEL Jackson was found dead after suffering a cardiac arrest attributed to a fatal dose of the anaesthetic propofol at the age of 50.
The King of Popâs personal physician, Dr Conrad Murray, was convicted of the involuntary manslaughter of Jackson in 2011 and served two years in prison.
But in new documentary KillingÂ Michael Jackson, the three US detectives who led the original probe into Jacksonâs death on June 25, 2009 â Orlando Martinez, Dan Myers and Scott Smith â speak exclusively for the first time, revealing what they found inside the room where Jackson died.
Photographs from inside Jacksonâs home treatment room and bedroom are revealed in the documentary.
Detectives recall finding Jacksonâs treatment room scattered with medicines, advertisement boards of children, a doll, and Jacksonâs computer.
âSo we knew that sometime during this medical emergency, Dr Murray had stopped either giving CPR or had waited to give CPR and cleaned up everythingâ
Speaking in the documentary, Detective Orlando Martinez describes entering the scene.
âThere were post-it notes, or pieces of paper taped all over the room and mirrors and doors with little slogans or phrases,â he said.
âI donât know if they were lyrics or thoughts. Some of them seemed like poems.
âThe bedroom wasâŠ it was a mess,â he says.
Entering the room where Dr Murray treated Jackson, Martinez continues to describe the eerie surroundings:
âIn the room where he was being treated, it did not seem like a room fit for any type of medical treatment.
âI mean, it was like a home, makeshift medical suite. It was just bare bones.â
