Dr Murray is reported to have confessed to cops that he had ALREADY given the singer surgical anaesthetic Propofol that same day. Jackson is feared to have woken when the effects wore off and demanded pain relief.
The Demerol was duly administered by the compliant aide - with devastating effects. The combination of Demerol and Propofol, known by the brand name Diprivan, triggered a massive heart attack.
Sources have claimed the cardiologist was asleep and therefore not paying attention when his patient's heart stopped beating. He woke to find 50-year-old Jackson dead and desperately tried to revive him.
Murray would set up a system to give Michael a steady intravenous release of Diprivan through the night. But this time Michael woke up before Murray did and asked one of his aides for some Demerol. The aide gave it to him, but it was too soon after receiving the anaesthetic. That's what killed him.
