Dr. Conrad Murray hid propofol and vials of sedatives rather than continuing CPR on Jackson

Alberto Alvarez, Michael Jackson's logistics director, is claiming Dr. Conrad Murray ceased CPR on the star in favor of cleaning up the abundance of drug vials at the scene. According to Alvarez, when he arrived at the Jackson's house, his mouth and eyes were wide open and there was no sign of life

In the midst of performing CPR, Murray abruptly stopped and began collecting an array of vials from around Jackson. He instructed Alvarez to put them into a plastic bag, and then into a brown canvas bag. An IV bag filled with a milky white substance, later identified as propofol, was stuffed into a blue canvas bag. After the drugs had been hidden, Murray then told Alvarez to dial 911.

Murray ended up leading the police to the bags full of sedatives in the closet days later, and his attorney, Ed Chernoff, denies his client hid propofol.  Chernoff commented on Alvarez's accusations to the Associated Press:

He didn't say any of those things, then two months later, all of a sudden, the doc is throwing bottles into the bag. Alvarez's statement is inconsistent with his previous statement. We will deal with that at trial.

Two other key witnesses capable of shedding light on the subject are Jackson's personal assistant Michael Amir Williams, and his driver/bodyguard Faheem Muhammed. Although they were both present at the time of the singer's death, neither has spoken publicly since his death.

Dr. Conrad Murray pleaded not guilty last month to one count of involuntary manslaughter.
