LOS ANGELES – Michael Jackson is heard discussing his plans to build a hospital for children in a rambling, slurring conversation with the doctor charged in his death. The recording ends with the singer saying, “I am asleep” after the doctor asks him if he is OK. A forensic computer expert told jurors hearing the involuntary manslaughter case against Dr. Conrad Murray that the audio was recorded May 10, 2009, roughly six weeks before Jackson’s death.
The audio played Wednesday in a Los Angeles courtroom is significantly longer than the snippet that prosecutors played during opening statements last week. Jackson is heard telling Murray that he wants to build a children’s hospital after his planned series of comeback concerts. The singer tells the doctor that he is attempting to accomplish something that Elvis Presley and The Beatles did not.
