Local pharmacist Tim Lopez took the stand in the trail of Michael Jackson’s former doctor yesterday. Why was his testimony important?
According to the “Los Angeles Times,” Tim Lopez owns a specialty pharmacy here in Las Vegas, and testified that he sent large quantities of the surgical anesthetic propofol to Doctor Conrad Murray in the three months before Jackson’s death.
Lopez also testified that Murray never mentioned if the pop singer was his only patient at the time, and the doctor led Lopez to believe 255 vials of propofol were going to patients at a Los Angeles clinic. Lopez says the drug was shipped by Fed Ex to the Santa Monica apartment of Murray’s ladyfriend. A judge will determine if the 57-year-old Murray will stand trial for involuntary manslaughter, in Jackson’s death from an overdose of the drug in June 2009.
