Where is Michael Jackson’s Doctor Conrad Murray Now? – American singer, composer, dancer, and philanthropist Michael Joseph Jackson. He is acknowledged as one of the most influential cultural leaders of the 20th century and is known as the “King of Pop.” Jackson passed away on June 25, 2009, after a propofol and benzodiazepine overdose that led to cardiac death. Less than three weeks before the first This Is It performance in London was scheduled to start, with all concerts sold out.
Michael Jackson was getting ready for a run of comeback concerts called ‘This Is It’ that was expected to begin in July 2009 at London’s O2 Arena when he passed away. Jackson received numerous sleeping aids from Conrad Murray, his personal doctor, in his rented property in Holmby Hills, Los Angeles. Propofol, a potent anaesthetic, was administered by Dr. Conrad Murray, who was held accountable. Fox’s documentary “Who Really Killed Michael Jackson?” focuses on the circumstances surrounding the late singer’s passing and the part Conrad played in it.
Who Is Dr. Conrad Murray?
Conrad Robert Murray, a former cardiologist from Grenada, was Michael Jackson’s personal doctor when he passed away in 2009. Murray was born on February 19, 1953. Murray served nearly two years of a four-year jail sentence after being convicted guilty of involuntary manslaughter for incorrectly giving the anaesthetic propofol, which caused Jackson’s death.
Michael Jackson passed away on June 25, 2009, just a few weeks after being treated by Murray after being given a fatal dose of propofol. The coroner’s preliminary finding indicated that Jackson overdosed on propofol, according to court documents that were made public in August 2009. The coroner’s office failed to respond to reports that the death was determined to be a homicide, though. The offices of many doctors who may have treated Jackson were searched. The emphasis of the inquiry finally switched to Murray after the cause of Jackson’s death was judged to be acute propofol intoxication with a contributing benzodiazepine impact, and the manner of death was determined to be a homicide based on the autopsy and toxicology findings.
On the night of Jackson’s passing, he acknowledged giving Jackson 25 mg of propofol intravenously to treat his insomnia. According to a police affidavit, he claimed that he attempted treating Jackson with various medications and that Jackson insisted that he give him propofol. Murray claimed he was trying to wean Jackson off the medicine because he was concerned that he had grown dependent on it as a sleep aid. Propofol is frequently given in a hospital or a clinical setting with close monitoring, mainly used for general anaesthesia during surgery.
It is only administered by anesthesiologists, nurse anaesthetists, anaesthesia assistants, or intensive medicine practitioners who have considerable training in operating and monitoring anaesthetics. It is not indicated or approved as a sleep aid (but any FDA-approved drug can be used off-label). Murray lacked any such instruction.

Where is Dr. Conrad Murray Now? What Is His Net Worth?
Murray was formally charged with involuntary manslaughter in February 2011. Murray began his trial in Los Angeles on September 27, 2011, and on November 7, 2011, he was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter. His bail was withdrawn, and he was kept in jail until his sentence on November 29.
Four years in prison was imposed on him, which was the maximum punishment in that case. His California and Nevada licenses were suspended, and his Texas medical license was revoked. Murray was granted parole on October 28, 2013, after serving a two-year sentence.
Jackson’s father, Joe Jackson, sued Murray for wrongful death in 2010 but later withdrew the claim. Jackson’s mother, Katherine Jackson and her three children also sued AEG for wrongful death in 2010, alleging Murray’s employment was irresponsible. In 2013, the jury found it in AEG’s favour.
Although Murray insisted that he does not charge patients for his services, that he is merely “offering a consultation” without prescribing medication, and that, as a result he “is not breaking the law,” Inside Edition revealed in 2016 that Murray was “still visiting patients.”
Murray claimed to be living a peaceful life in a lavish one-bedroom condo in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, at the time. He claimed that he walked his dog, Sebastian, a lot of the time. The doctor remarked, “I’ve lost everything. Everything I’ve amassed has been gone due to an unjust verdict. I’m an innocent man, and I still am.” According to Celebrity Net Worth, Murray’s estimated net worth is -$500,000.
Did Dr. Murray Lose His Medical License?
Texas revoked Murray’s medical licence following the guilty judgement. His medical licence was revoked in Nevada and California.
In California, when a medical licence is cancelled for professional misconduct, the doctor must wait at least three years to petition the licencing board to reinstate it. Once their probation or parole is over, they can begin the process.
The Sun reports that Murray “now works as a doctor in the Caribbean and intends to reactivate his US medical licence.” Additionally, he says he is constructing a cardiovascular patients-only medical facility in Bimini.
The former physician said his house was repossessed and his children were “placed on the street.” Murray said to begin my life and locate a suitable job, “I lost four practises, and I’ve had to knock on so many doors.”
