Doc Ordered Alarming 255 Vials Of Propofol Before MJ Death
In testimony on Monday, pharmacist Tim Lopez, the owner of a specialty pharmacy in Las Vegas, revealed that he sent large quantities of the surgical anesthetic 'propofol' to Dr. Conrad Murray in the three months before Michael Jackson died of an overdose.
According to the L.A. Times, "Lopez said Murray never mentioned the pop star was his only patient at the time, and instead led him to believe the 255 vials of propofol he requested were being used for patients at a Los Angeles clinic."
The shipments were delivered to a Santa Monica apartment where Murray's mistress and infant son were residing. Lopez reportedly once volunteered to hand deliver an order during a trip to Los Angeles, and Murray requested he Fed Ex the package as usual.
