LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: The King of Pop Michael Jackson died in June 2009 at his home in Los Angeles and his personal physician at the time, Dr Conrad Murray, was jailed for involuntary manslaughter. There have been multiple theories floating on the Internet but an LAPD detective has claimed that the death of the pop icon was inevitable.
 
LAPD detective Orlando Martinez in a new TMZ documentary called ‘TMZ Investigates: Who Really Killed Michael Jackson’ claimed that the singer’s death was “inevitable” and admitted it was “amazing” that Michael Jackson didn't pass away sooner due to the crooner’s acute addition to anesthetic drugs like propofol. The ‘Black Or White’ hitmaker died of drug-induced cardiac arrest.

'I really do believe that this death was inevitable’

In an explosive new investigative interview, Los Angeles Police Department Detective Orlando Martinez asserted, “I really do believe that this death was inevitable” adding, “Michael was going to get what he wanted. And if you said no, he would find someone who would do it for him.” Martinez further stated, “There are a lot of folks who are to blame that have never had a reckoning for his death.”
 
In the documentary, Orlando Martinez explained that Michael Jackson would go to multiple different doctors who would prescribe him medication, as shared by The Daily Mail. The LAPD detective explained that the singer would often get a large quantity rather than normal doses.

Martinez also shed light on Dr Murray saying it was difficult to even get bother experts within the medical profession to help the case at the time as they did not want to get involved. Dr Murray was released from prison in 2013 after serving half of his total jail time of four years.

‘He had multiple, different doctors that he was involved with’

Dr Harry Glassman, Michael Jackson’s plastic surgeon, claimed in the documentary that the ‘Thriller’ hitmaker booked appointments with multiple different doctors to get multiple prescriptions so he could take larger doses than what he had been prescribed.
 
“He had multiple, different doctors that he was involved with and he would go to ‘Doctor A’ and ask for a sedative, and then he would go to ‘Doctor B’ and may ask for the same one,” claimed Glassman. He added, “Michael is responsible, to a great extent, for his own demise, but he certainly had a lot of help from the medical community,” as reported by Oacoree.

Dr Murray, in the new documentary, claimed, “I will always love Michael" despite “it was not right” that he personally took so much of the blame over the iconic singer’s death.  He said that other doctors who provided Michael with drugs over the years were complicit in his death. He also added that he was “manipulated” by Jackson.
