Report: Conrad Murray Tells Visitors He Doesn’t Want to Live
Dr. Conrad Murray seems to have believed that he could actually play a role in the death of one of the most beloved entertainers in history and not end up in prison. The doctor is currently housed in the medical ward of the LA County Jail, and there are reports that he is considering killing himself.
“A person’s medical or mental health status in the Los Angeles County Jail is protected under the law,” Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Steve Whitmore told E! News.
“He didn’t think he would be found guilty,” his media representative Miranda Sevcik said. ”He didn’t mentally prepare himself. He is a very positive person and he didn’t prepare for this outcome.”
“When someone isn’t prepared, it hits them doubly hard,” she added.
Murray faces only up to four years for his crimes. His team is still holding out hope that he can get out of this without going to prison. They say that he’s not a flight risk or danger to society, and that he’s always cooperated with investigators.
