Ed Chernoff on calling 911:

“Dr. Murray rode with Michael Jackson to the hospital. . . Dr. Murray considered himself to be a friend of Michael Jackson and he is very distraught over his death. He will continue to cooperate in every respect.”

Ed Chernoff on Dr. Murray arriving at the hospital:

“Conrad Murray was the one who suggested the autopsy to the family while they were still in the hospital. He didn’t understand why Michael Jackson had died.”

“Dr. Murray spoke to La Toya, Jermaine and Katherine.  He spoke to the children after their father had died. He said the children needed to be told about their father’s death. He was available to the family to answer their questions.”

Ed Chernoff on Dr. Murray giving Demrol or Oxycontin:

“I can state unequivocally there was no Demerol or Oxycontin administered or prescribed by Dr. Murray.”

“There’s nothing in his history, nothing that Dr. Murray knew, that would lead him to believe he would go into sudden cardiac arrest or respiratory failure. There was no red flag available to Dr. Murray, which led him to believe he would have died the way he did. It’s still a mystery how he died.”

Ed Chernoff on Dr. Murray being treated as a witness:

“Investigators have made it clear…that Dr. Murray is considered to be a witness to the events surrounding Michael Jackson’s death, and he is not a suspect.  Dr. Murray hired legal counsel to help guide him through the police investigation process. The law firm was hired to make sure the police investigation is conducted properly.”
