Conrad Murray Legitimately Believes That Jail is Killing Him

Dr. Conrad Murray, currently serving four years in jail for his role in Michael Jackson's death, is either turning into a hypochondriac or losing his mind (or just kind of whining a lot). TMZ reports that Murray told his lawyer that staying at L.A. County Jail is "killing me," a conclusion he's come to because he's recently been getting a lot of headaches. Murray reportedly thinks the headaches are the result of a brain tumor, even though he's never been diagnosed with any such ailment.

Anyway, the good doctor reportedly wants to be transferred to prison, where he thinks he'll get better medical care. Because that's what serving time is all about.
