This afternoon, Alberto Alvarez, one of MJ's bodyguards, took the stand and recalled what he saw the day Michael was pronounced dead. Alberto told the court that he was the first security guard to enter Michael's room and recounted his fear when finding Michael frozen, with his eyes and mouth opened.
He then reveals that upon entering the room, Dr. Murray handed him a plastic bag filled with vials and pills and instructed him to put it in a canvas bag. He was then handed a intravenous bag from Dr. Murray, which he was told to put into another sack.
At this point in his tearful testimony, he was asked by the prosecution if 911 had been called. Alberto answered, "no." He then recounted the moment Michael's children came into the room to find their father in this state. Alberto explained:
"Paris screamed, 'Daddy!' and she started to cry. Dr. Murray said, 'Get them out. Don't let them see him like this.'"After Alberto calmed the children and escorted them out of the room, he returned to see Dr. Murray handling both the canvas bags and asking him to finally call an ambulance. After reviewing the 911 call. Alberto explained how he attempted to give Michael CPR, handling the chest compressions as Dr. Murray gave mouth-to-mouth. When Deputy District Attorney David Walgren asked Alberto if Michael seemed dead or alive at this point, the bodyguard replied, "Dead, sir."
Ugh! Such a horrible thing to have to live through! And those kids, Michael's poor children. How horrifying that must have been for them.
So far, the prosecution has given outstanding evidence to suggest Dr. Murray's guilt. The whole thing with the bags sounds suspicious to us, as we're sure it did with the judge.
No doubt this is going to trial, as well it should.
