WOW! Today, the Los Angeles Coroner’s office has ruled Michael Jackson’s death a homicide. MJ, a Virgo, was a gentle soul, who was a creative genius, yet a troubled soul.

The Los Angeles County coroner’s office said Friday that it had officially ruled Michael Jackson’s death a homicide and determined that a surgical anesthetic combined with other medication killed him.

In a one-page statement, officials listed the cause of Jackson’s June 25 death as “acute propofol intoxication” with the additional factor of “benzodiazepine effect.”

Three different sedatives that fall into the benzodiazepine drug class were in Jackson’s system, but only the anti-anxiety medication lorazepam, often known by the brand name Ativan, was cited alongside propofol as “the primary drugs responsible for Mr. Jackson’s death.”

In a statement from their publicist, Jackson’s family commended investigators for their work and said his relatives were looking “forward to the day that justice can be served.”

Also on Friday, California Atty. Gen. Jerry Brown announced that at the request of the LAPD, his office would launch an independent investigation into several doctors who may have treated Jackson in recent months.

What does this mean for Dr. Conrad Murray? If the Jackson family have their way, he will be arrested and stand trial for his death. Tragic…
