Conrad Murray, THE MAN WHO KILLED MICHAEL JACKSON. Part 1 about some British films
This post will be about the medications given to Michael by Conrad Murray, his lies morphing from one into another, and filling the blank spaces in his ever-changing story of how he killed Michael Jackson with real facts.
However it will start with something different – with a film which also claims that it will look into the drugs Michael Jackson was allegedly “taking”.
THE AUTOPSY FILM
Some time ago Laura Messina published on Facebook the news that British ITV channel is planning another autopsy show about Michael Jackson to be broadcast early next year 2014.
In contrast to Murray’s case this morbid show may turn out to be off limits to the Estate, same as it was not possible for Michael’s lawyers to stop Martin Bashir’s filth when British TV was so terribly intent on showing it to its readers.
The jurisdiction is different, and deceased people can be trashed as much as the media wants it, and the added complication is that they are planning to trash not only Michael Jackson but Whitney Houston and Anna Nicole Smith too which makes it difficult to single out MJ out of “three global celebrities who died suddenly, causing claims, counter claims, wild rumours and multiple theories about their deaths” as the media claims.
In fact Michael Jackson should not be singled out because all the three deceased people got more than enough while they were alive and deserve some peace at least in their death. In the case of Michael Jackson the guilt of the media is already enormous, so tossing his dead body for the sake of profits of some good-for-nothing TV channel is something really beyond the pale – like unloading a truckload of shit on someone’s grave.
Of course if this TV channel planned a proper investigation of the three deaths for once in their lifetime the situation would be different, however the tonality of the series does not give hope that it will be something decent.
They promise to turn it into a fascinating autopsy sight made out of the remains of three dead people:
“The fascinating thing about an autopsy is that if you know how to read it correctly, it doesn’t just tell you how a person died, it can tell you even more about how they lived,” says Shepherd. “And furthermore, autopsies are non-judgmental; they are simply a scientific acquisition of facts, so in the case of a person that is well known, that objectivity can allow you to see them with fresh eyes, up close and personal and as if for the first time. The fact that they are a celebrity makes no difference at all.”
Shepherd is wrong. The autopsy will not tell you how they lived – unless you carry out a full investigation how the various substances in their bodies found their way there. The medications themselves do not say a thing about how these persons lived, because the drugs could be fed to them by others to induce death (in murder cases, for example), and could have nothing to do with these people’s usual way of life.
Since I never studied the circumstances of life and death of the two women the only person I can speak of is Michael Jackson, and over here I can assert that most of the medications found in Michael’s body tell us not of the way Michael lived, but of the way Conrad Murray “treated” him as they were given to Michael and not what he took himself.
Most of the drugs found in Michael’s system were the medications he never wanted. I’m talking of the benzodiazepines Murray pushed onto Michael and which Michael resisted very much indeed as they were not helping him sleep anyway – however Murray regularly injected them into his body as if Michael were a guinea pig for his experiments.
Murray claimed that he began to use benzos to “wean MJ off propofol” which is a lie. I checked it up and he actually ordered the first trays of benzos as early as April 2009, when propofol had been barely started and there was nothing yet to “wean” Michael off , and this means that Murray was planning to use those benzos from the very beginning of his “treatment”.
If the new British film focused on the way Conrad Murray was steadfastly killing Michael Jackson by his irresponsible experiments on his health I would not object to it, however it seems that the truth is the last thing these guys want.
Here is the description of their series they themselves provide:
Episode One: Michael Jackson
Michael Jackson, “The King of Pop” was the biggest selling recording artist of all time, but when he suddenly died at just 50 years old, he left $400 million in debts, and more questions than answers.
The evidence revealed by his autopsy shows a man who suffered. Plagued by complications from his many plastic surgeries, suffering from two rare skin conditions, riddled with arthritis and with his lungs severely damaged, he had an enlarged prostate, and was still suffering the effects of a horrific accident that left him bald.
But the most startling evidence takes us inside the bewildering number of drugs that were coursing through his veins – many at toxic levels – bearing witness to a host of addictions that had spiralled out of control, and the desperate battle against insomnia that would cost him his life.
Episode Two: Whitney Houston
Whitney Houston was a singer, actress, icon and diva with a once in a generation voice that propelled her into the pop stratosphere, but no amount of talent could protect her from the demons that dragged her to her death in a Hollywood hotel bathroom at the age of just 48.
The evidence revealed by her autopsy tells an astonishing story of excess, revealing in detail the damage done by years of abuse – from liver and heart disease caused by alcohol and smoking, to the perforated septum ravaged by repeatedly snorting cocaine – and uncovers the cocktail of drugs that contributed to her death, from prescription medications, to marijuana and free base cocaine.
But most importantly the evidence gives us a unique portal into the final minutes of her life alone in a bathroom, finally revealing the truth of what killed her and how she died and every detail of the desperate battle to save her life.
Episode Three: Anna Nicole Smith
Anna Nicole Smith was the embodiment of the American dream. Her breast implant-fuelled journey from small town stripper to Playboy pin up, Guess Jeans supermodel and Hollywood movie star captured the public imagination, but it was her marriage to a billionaire 67 years her senior that brought her global notoriety and started her on a downward path that led to her death in a Florida hotel room at the age of just 39.
The evidence revealed by her autopsy tells a heart-breaking story of hard living and hard luck. Her swollen liver, damaged lungs and injection-riddled buttocks all bear testimony to the addictions and behaviours that blighted her life. Coursing around her veins were prescription meds and the sedative that killed her idol, Marilyn Monroe.
But the most extraordinary revelations that the autopsy provides are the unusual cause of the mystery infection that contributed to her death, and the previously undiagnosed condition that could go a long way to explaining many of the tragic events of her life.
What a morbid description bred by unhealthy minds. And what a sample of vulgarity and bad taste… I would even be curious to look into the faces of the creators of the program and its prospective viewers for purely educational purposes – just to know in advance whom to never give a handshake.
The MJ episode is of course the main bait of the series. Look at the vocabulary referring to Jackson – “the startling evidence”, “the bewildering number of drugs”, “a host of addictions”, “that spiraled out of control” and this alone will tell you more than you care to know about these people’s intentions.
All of it is indeed a startling evidence that the British media is again taking from their dusty shelves the old propaganda clichés about Michael Jackson. And if there is anything indeed spiraling out of control it is only their endless lies about him.
These people did not understand a thing and are still the same old pigsty and shameless kind. So not a word more about this trash, please. Instead I suggest looking at another British film which was shown immediately after Murray’s guilty verdict in November 2011.
CONRAD MURRAY, THE MAN WHO KILLED MICHAEL JACKSON
At that time I couldn’t force myself to watch the film shown several days after Conrad Murray’s conviction. Seeing this person not taking a chance to testify in court but then freely telling lies and making profit on Michael’s death was an unbearable sight.
However now that Murray is emerging with new lies the old ones have been overshadowed and now it is interesting to see the film to educate oneself on Murray’s story number 2 (story number 1 was his police interview).
The thing is that Murray is not just a simple liar – he constantly changes his lies due to his changing agenda and the new alliances he forms. Each time you see a different Murray and a different version of his lies, and seeing him morphing into something new is to a certain extent an interesting sight.
1. Conrad Murray’s story at its “freshest” was provided in the police interview dated June 27, 2009.
For the two days that passed since Michael’s death he already made up his basic lies – about allegedly never leaving Michael’s side except for two minutes only and then valiantly fighting for his life even when all those other weaklings gave up.
Murray’s problem at that time was that he was still unsure how much he could disclose about the role of his boss (AEG) in Michael’s death and therefore kept much of it to himself and never even mentioned them.
His then focus was on how “helpful”he was to Michael and how bad his other doctors were, how caring he was for Michael’s family and “holding their hands” after the tragedy. The excerpt from the interview:
- I sat with the family, Mrs. Jackson. I pulled my chair all the way up to her. Latoya was right there. I held their hands. I asked them if they had any questions. “Is there anything I can do to help?” … I wanted to be there to answer anything that they wanted, any questions that they may have had. And I did that.
This sentimental piece took Katherine Jackson completely by surprise as she said he had never even come close to her in the hospital.
But then came a second version of Murray’s lies.
2. In the film of November 2011 we saw a different Conrad Murray and a different story.
Now Murray was clearly enraged that AEG was not helping him during the trial (at least not as much as he expected) and he spilled out some details about Ortega who threatened to quit the show and Randy Phillips who made insolent and humiliating comments about Michael.
In the film Murray is venting about Randy Phillips who took him aside after the June 20th meeting in Michael’s home and swore so much that it shocked even Murray:
30:05 Murray: “The producer Kenny Ortega made several statements. He was going to quit, this could not go on if Michael was not going to do what he was expected to do they cannot have a show. And they could not get Michael to conform to what they wanted. Michael on the other hand was saying they were working him too much. He was …He did not want to be worked as a machine. He felt like a machine.”
30:30 Voiceover: Kenny Ortega, the director of This is it, warned of Michael’s poor condition in an email sent five days before Jackson died:
“He appeared quite weak and fatigued this evening. He had a visible case of the chills, was trembling, rambling and obsessing. …Tonight I was feeding him, wrapping him in blankets to warm his chills, massaging his feet to calm him and calling his doctor. … I believe he really wants this. It would shatter him, break his heart if we pulled the plug. He’s terribly frightened it’s all going to go away. He asked me repeatedly tonight if I was going to leave him. He was practically begging for my confidence. It broke my heart. He was like a lost boy. There still may be a chance he can rise to the occasion if we get him the help he needs. Sincerely, Kenny”
With all 50 shows sold out Ortega’s email had an immediate impact. A crisis meeting is held at Jackson’s home with Michael, Ortega, Dr. Murray and Randy Phillips, the CEO of AEG, the concert promoters.
31:35 Randy Phillips: “Dr. Murray spoke for Michael on a situation and guaranteed us that Michael would get in tour, would connect”.
31:43 Voiceover: According to Murray Randy Phillips took him aside to warn him of the dire financial consequences to Jackson if the London concerts were cancelled.
31:55 Murray: “That’s when I got the shock. Randy Phillips asked that they just step out of the living room when the meeting had ended. This is him, grinding his teeth. “He does not have a fucking cent, a fucking cent. What’s this bullshit all about? Listen, this guy is next to the skid row, he’s going to be homeless, the fucking pop sickles that his children are sucking on… Look, those kids…what’s that all about? Nine security guards, why does he need that? I’m paying for that shit. I’m paying for the toilet paper he wipes his ass with. He has never a fucking cent. And if he don’t get his show done, he’s over. This is it. This is the last chance that he has to earn any kind of money. He is ruined. Financially he has nothing. Zero.
32:05 Voiceover: Under oath Randy Phillips denied any such conversation.
Chernoff: You did not go to Dr. Murray after the meeting to tell him anything?
Randy Phillips: No.
Chernoff: You didn’t know what Kenny Ortega did?
Randy Phillips: No. We all left together, so I don’t think so.
Voiceover: Only two people will ever know whether that conversation took place.
33:30 Jackson’s problems at rehearsals stand from his physical weakness and his recurrent insomnia. Years before he had turned to propofol, a powerful anesthetic as a drastic measure to get to sleep. Jackson called it his milk. Murray admits that he first gave Jackson propofol only after becoming his personal physician.
33:50 Murray: “He spoke of it – because of this current concert he needed to have sleep so that he could compose properly, be ready for the performances and this was only because of the This is it concert”.
Voiceover: Days before Michael’s death Murray claims Jackson’s craving for sleep intensified.
Murray: ‘He said “I want fifteen to eighteen hours of sleep. That’s what most doctors gave me… Give me ten minutes, give me twenty minutes.” I would say to him: “Why would ten minutes help you?” It doesn’t make sense. Why would twenty minutes make a difference?” “Oh, it will, it will. It really helps me….I’m composing. I am at the stage of production..”
The above is valuable not only for keeping record of AEG’s threats to Murray and Michael, but also for remembering things like “Ortega wanted to quit” and Chernoff’s questions like: “You didn’t know what Kenny Ortega did?”
What Ortega did is more or less known to us now from Karen Faye’s messages sent early in the morning of June 19th to her boyfriend. Over there she quoted Ortega and Randy Phillips’s easily recognizable vocabulary:
- “Didn’t get home until 2:30. KENNY WAS MAD. He and Randy Phillips and the doctor held a sort of intervention. MJ didn’t show till 9:30 p.m. Kenny told me AEG, (Randy Phillips) is funding his entire life right now. His house, food, kids, school, everything. They told him they will PULL THE PLUG IF HE DOESN’T GET HIS SHIT TOGETHER. IF HE DOESN’T DO THIS, HE LOSES EVERYTHING, PROBABLY EVEN HIS KIDS.”
Murray says that Ortega “made several statements” and “was going to quit” – so he did threaten Michael (and AEG) if Michael did not perform at rehearsals.
However Michael was not obliged to and said that they were making him work too hard, and indeed, at the preliminary stage it was mostly Ortega’s job which was to be over in some ten days or so, while Michael had 50 shows ahead of him and had to spare his strength as he always did it during his other tours.
In his email of June 20th Phillips confirmed that his main focus was absolutely not on Michael, but on Ortega whose quitting the show worried him much more than Michael Jackson’s condition, health, state of mind or life in general. About Michael he couldn’t care less, while Ortega’s ultimatum (evidently made on June 18) was regarded by him as a real tragedy.
Hence the threats to Michael that he would lose everything, even his children. If the threat sent Michael into a panic, this was actually Randy Phillips’s intent as he did want to frighten Michael out of his wits.
However Phillips never expected that Michael’s terrible state the next day after those threats (on June 19) would shock Ortega so much that he would backpedal from what he said the day before and he and AEG jointly agreed to do to Michael – pull the plug on him and so on.
The proof that the only person Randy Phillips was worried about was Ortega is in Michael Kane’s email sent early in the morning of June 20th. Kane said that he thought “it couldn’t get worse”, and Randy Phillips replied to him – “It could! Kenny Ortega could quit.”
It was in this enraged state of mind that later that day Phillips joined Michael, Murray and Ortega for a crisis meeting of June 20th .
The main goal of the meeting was not to discuss Michael’s quickly and terribly declining health (this matter was not even an issue), but to “check Ortega’s hysteria” and make Michael conform to whatever Ortega wanted of him at that time.
The picture of what happened after that meeting was vividly described by Murray in the 2011 film (when Phillips grinded his teeth and hissed about the toilet paper), and this means that even Murray is capable of occasionally telling the truth if he is placed in the right circumstances and is caught at the right moment.
This right moment came just prior to the verdict at Murray’s trial when he was terribly resentful of AEG for having to be the only one to answer for what they did together.
This is why he raised the curtain of secrecy over the way AEG and Ortega treated Michael during the preparation of the show and why Michael felt so terribly pressured and could not sleep, the consequences of which had to be dealt with only by Murray.
Murray felt like a fall guy and he vented.
Karen Faye’s tweets of 26 September also confirm that Murray was actually telling the truth there:
- “Randy Phillips SLAPPED and yelled at Michael and witnessed how injured Michael’s spirit was before production even began.”
- “AEG had millions invested and they were desperate to recoup their money (no insurance). They put Michael under unbearable pressure, by threatening to take everything away, if he did not get to rehearsals.”
- “RP and Paul Gongaware were fully aware of Michael’s issues. They thought they could control the situation by controlling Murray”
- “Michael kept repeating “why can’t I choose” in his last weeks on earth.”
- “Michael was cornered. AEG was financing MJ’s life, and TII. You heard all of MJ’s financial issues. When RP threatened to “pull the plug” it meant a lot more than stop the show.”
Now we understand why according to Murray “days before Michael’s death his craving for sleep intensified”.
It intensified because Michael was put under unbearable pressure by Ortega and AEG who, by the way, were late with the production due to their own fault – Ortega was busy with another project and he and AEG just started too late.
But that was Murray’s second version of the story, which was followed by still another one.
3. Upon Murray’s release from jail in October 2013 we see a different Conrad Murray again, and hear the third and amended version of his story.
By now his attorney Valerie Wass had struck a big friendship with the AEG lawyers and this was witnessed by many at the AEG civil trial, and this resulted in Murray keeping mum about AEG again.
The new element of the story is that now he is shifting all attention to some vague but nasty innuendoes about Michael – only this time he is taking them even further than his initial statements about Michael and “drugs given to him by some other doctors.”
Now he gives long stares suggesting that (for an adequate payment) he is ready to talk about the alleged “the dark side” of Michael whom he allegedly “loves very much” and whose “true friend he was”. Today’s Murray is nasty, determined and calculating, and has a look of someone who is ready to kill.
His transformation is dramatic, and his whole demeanor is contrasting with everything we saw before. Through all that acting and affected emotions you can now see his thirst for revenge, cruel indifference to anyone except himself and a confidence that comes with siding with a powerful ally.
Not a word is said now about AEG, and the determination to do harm is placed only on his “friend”Michael the hate for whom is visible with a naked eye.
The combination of this nastiness with the resumed friendship with AEG reminds me of Wade Robson who also suddenly “recalled” bad things about Michael just at the outset of the AEG trial which convinced us that the goal of the attack was to distract attention from AEG and paint Michael a villain who “deserved his death.”
From the present Murray’s comments on Michael it is clear that he has made his choice and declared a war on the Jacksons. Murray sides only with those who are stronger, so the outcome of the AEG trial must have affected his decision very much indeed.
The media also noticed Murray’s new priorities and even called it a “declaration of war on Katherine Jackson”:
Conrad Murray Ignites War With Katherine Jackson
11/25/2013 9:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
One of Katherine’s lawyers tells TMZ, “Murray has refused to go under the OATH KNIFE and his attempt to exploit Michael are despicable and disgusting.” Translation: He took the 5th because he’s guilty as sin and now he’s selling sordid stories about MJ to line his pockets.
Another lawyer sent Murray’s attorney a scathing email, calling the doc “reprehensible.”
But Murray’s lawyer, Valerie Wass, quickly went on the counterattack, saying, “You and members of your client’s family have been bad-mouthing my client for a long time. I don’t blame him for talking, especially after … you tried to portray him as an awful person.”
What’s unclear … how Murray talking about holding MJ’s penis clears up anything.
For the sake of the record the samples of Murray’s revelations will have to be placed here so that people know the degree of Murray’s hate for the man he killed and the deepness of the new low he has sunk to. In Murray’s eyes things were starting so well, but Michael Jackson ruined all Conrad Murray’s hopes because he dared to die!
Dr. Conrad Murray ‘I Held Michael’s Penis Every Night’
11/24/2013 1:24 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Dr. Conrad Murray says he and Michael Jackson were so tight, he would hold his penis for him.
In a bizarre, rambling interview with The Daily Mail, Murray says, “You want to know how close we were? I held his penis every night to fit a catheter because he was incontinent at night.”
Murray went on to say, “He wore dark trousers all the time because after he went to the toilet he would drip for hours.”
And there’s this mystery … Murray says, “Michael didn’t know how to put a condom on, so I had to do it for him.”
Murray also discloses some of the things TMZ revealed years ago — that Murray believes Michael killed himself. Murray claims when he walked out of Michael’s bedroom the day he died, “I believe he woke up, got hold of his own stash of Propofol and injected himself. He did it too quickly and went into cardiac arrest.”
And, Murray suggests, MJ’s kids have 3 different fathers, and Michael isn’t one of them. Murray says, “Michael told me he never slept with Debbie Rowe.”
And, Murray insists, Michael told him he had been sexually assaulted by one of his doctors while under sedation.
And this bizarre comment. Murray suggests Michael predicted he would die on Murray’s watch. He says MJ once looked at him and said, “You know, for the rest of your life and my life our names will become inseparable.” Murray says MJ smiled and said, “I am clairvoyant.”
At some point of Murray spilling his crazy stories on the amazed public the Estate could no longer tolerate it and sent Murray a cease and desist letter reminding him of the doctor/patient privilege and telling him that they would stop at nothing within legal limits if he continued in the same manner – which is a stance I fully applaud:
November 26, 2013
Dr. Conrad Murray
c/o Valerie G. Wass, Esq.
Re: Michael Jackson
Dear Dr. Murray:
I write on behalf of the Estate of Michael Jackson (the “Estate”) to warn you to immediately cease and desist in discussing Michael Jackson with the press. Your recent comments to the media about Mr. Jackson’s medical treatment and ultimate death shamefully violate the physician-patient privilege under California law. Despite your self-serving statements to the contrary, you clearly were not Michael Jackson’s “friend.” You were Mr.Jackson’s medical doctor charged with his care. In this regards, all communications that you had with Mr. Jackson were in the course of that physician-patient relationship, and are therefore presumed confidential and absolutely privileged.
The physician-patient privilege remains in full effect despite Michael Jackson’s death. Under California Evidence Code #993 (c) the Estate is the authorized holder of the privilege and is entitled to assert it. See Cal. Evid. Code #993 (c) (defining “holder” of the privilege as “the personal representative of the patient if the patient is dead”), see also Hale v.Sup.Ct. 28 Cal.App.4th 1421, 1423 (1994) (decedent’s estate was holed of the privilege); Rittenhoute v.Sup.Ct. 235 Cal.App 3d 1584, 1588 (1991) (same). To be clear, the Estate has not, nor will it ever, authorize you to discuss with anyone especially the media your treatment of Michael Jackson, including without limitation, any and all communications that you had with Mr. Jacskon while he was under your medical care.
There is no question that you have already breached the physician-patient privilege in connection with your recent press interviews. The physician-patient privilege is broad and includeds all confidential communications “transmitted between a patient and his physician in the course of that relationship.” Cal.Evid.Cod #992. Communications between a physician and patient are “presumed to have been made in confidence and the opponent of the claim of privilege has the burden of proof to establish that the communication was not confidential.” Ca;. Evid.Code $917 (emphasis added). In addition to communications, the physician-patient privilege included all “information obtained by an examination of the patient” and all “diagnosis [es] made and the advice given by the physician in the course of the relationship.” Cal. Evid. Code #992, see also Binder v. Sup.Ct, 196 Cal. App.3d 893, 897 (1987). California courts have a long history of liberally construing the physician-patient privilege in favor of nondisclosure. See, e.g. Kramer v. Policy Holders’ Life Ins. Ass’n, 5 Cal. App. 2nd 380 (1935).
It is beyond ironic and cowardly that after electing not to testify before the jury that convicted you, you are now trying to publically defend your conduct by sharing supposed conversations you had with Michael Jackson and alleged details about Mr. Jackson’s medical condition and treatment. Your interviews about Mr. Jackson’s personal life, health, and recent stories about the medical treatment you supposedly provided him as a “friend,” disclose precisely the type of information that the physician-patient privilege is designed to protect. If you continue to violate the oath you took when you were a physician and persist in revealing privileged information (much of which appears fabricated) about Michael Jackson, the Estate will take all necessary and permissible legal action, which will include a lawsuit seeking to enjoin you from disclosing confidential information about Mr. Jackson in any future memoir or book (which you are reportedly attempting to shop). Moreover, if the extraordinary reports are true that you are actually seeking to have your medical license reinstated in any jurisdiction, the Estate will absolutely advise the applicable medical boards of your breaches of the physician-patient and any continuing refusal to honor the physician-patient privilege in connection with your treatment of Michael Jackson.
All rights and remedies are expressly herein reserved.
Very truly yours,
If anyone is still worrying about Murray regaining his license they can set their minds at peace now – after revelations like the above he will never get his medical license back. Even if he does, not a single patient will approach Murray for fear that he will tell stories about him holding their penises when those people were sedated and were unaware of the process – so his revelations about how he treated Jackson are the best guarantee that Conrad Murray will never resume a doctor’s career.
In case Murray is seeking career of a fiction writer the above cease-and-desist letter leaves no doubt that the Estate will sue Murray inside out if he continues to drag Michael through the mud – which is clearly his revenge to Michael for not getting a dime for the “successful” work done, spending two years in jail and his hopes for a financial bonanza going bust.
Murray doesn’t understand where his real treasure trove is – it is in telling the truth about the hell Michael was going through in his last days due to Ortega and AEG. His contract with AEG was not signed, so he is not bound by any confidentiality agreements with AEG and by telling the truth about them he may at least clear his conscience and do a little good to the man whose friend he supposedly was.
However it is exactly on this subject that Murray is keeping silent though over here he has a good deal to say.
The British film made in November 2011 turned out to be a surprising gift to us in terms of rebuffing Murray’s and media innuendoes over Michael “sleeping with a doll”.
The film showed the so-called secret Michael’s bedroom which no one but MJ was allowed to enter.
Murray spoke about it only in the context that it was totally unkept (which it was) and Flanagan was even going to use the mess in his defense of Conrad Murray:
27:35 Flanagan: …the public finally gets to see what that bathroom looks like? What are they going to think?
Ed Chernoff: “This is weird”
Flanagan’s wife: “ He was amazing, amazing in his field in music.”
Ed Chernoff: “I think the media, the media made him appear weirder than he is.”
We can see the snapshots from that room and bathroom and though it did show the mess (which was no different from Chernoff’s room in Flanagan’s house, by the way), it also showed that Michael was using it for packing his things for London as it was full of boxes and suitcases.
But what especially struck me was that there wasn’t a single photo of a baby, boy or girl, doll or whatever in that room!
Considering that it was Michael’s “secret bedchamber” it would be logical to assume that he would hold his biggest secrets there – however there was nothing out of ordinary about that room and all the baby photos were kept in the official bedroom which the maids occasionally cleaned up, and which were visited by Michael’s children and mother and where Murray was giving his “treatment” to Michael.
The second bedchamber had nothing secret about it except the mess – and this is probably why Michael didn’t allow anyone there.
By the way the manner in which the doll was neatly put on the edge of Michael’s bed and was turned away from him suggests that it was left there by someone else – which could be even Murray, by the way.

Before we continue with the story here is the film I am talking of:
