He goes on to say, "Children are depressed. The... in those hospitals, no game room, no movie theater. They're sick because they're depressed. Their mind is depressing them. I want to give them that. I care about them, them angels. God wants me to do it. God wants me to do it. I'm going to do it, Conrad."
Another voice (Murray's), answers, "I know you would."
Forensic expert Stephen Marx testified the recording was made on 10 May 2009. The phone also had e-mail attachments containing Michael's medical records, some under aliases. Murray was presumably forwarding them to British insurance agents who had questions about Michael's general health amid reports he was using a wheelchair due to a back injury and suffered from cancer, lupus, and emphysema amongst other ailments. Murray refuted reports of poor health in his e-mails to the company. The courtroom cameras focused on a photograph of Michael's lifeless body lying on a hospital gurney then cut away; the jury was allowed to view the photograph for two minutes.
The jury also heard a voicemail from Michael's manager, Frank DiLeo, left on Murray's iPhone five days before Michael's death in which Frank detailed an episode Michael had at rehearsal the night before. "He's sick," DiLeo said.
Producer Kenny Ortega sent an e-mail to Murray around the same time Frank left his voicemail message. Ortega wrote, "He appeared quite weak and fatigued this evening. He had a terrible case of the chills, was trembling, rambling and obsessing. Everything in me says he should be psychologically evaluated."
Los Angeles County Coroner's Investigator Elissa Fleak testified about the items she found in Michael's room on the day of his death including a bag of normal saline that had been slit open. The bag contained an empty 100mL vial of propofol that had Murray's fingerprints on it. She also found seven bottles of medication on the bedside table, including a bottle of lorazepam pills and a dozen other vials of propofol, including one on the floor next to the bed.
Seacoast medical supply rep Sally Hirschberg testified Murray placed an order for an IV infusion set and requested it be delivered to his residence. She said this "raised a red flag" and refused the delivery, sending it, instead, to one of his clinics. This was possibly among the supplies recovered from Michael's room by investigators.
