Michael Jackson's Doctor Faces Foreclosure

The Las Vegas Review-Journal is reporting that Michael Jackson’s former doctor, Conrad Murray, could possibly lose his home to foreclosure.

The paper reports that Dr. Murray is late on $15,165 in payments on his Las Vegas residence, which is located in a gated community on the Red Rock Country Club west of the Strip. Dr. Murray reportedly left his practice for a $150,000 a month gig to serve as Jackson’s personal physician. He hasn’t been paid for his time with Jackson.

Dr. Murray bought the 5,200 square foot, four bedroom home for $1.1 million in 2004 but refinanced it for $1.6 million in January 2008. The lender is Indiana-based Irwin Union Bank, according to the paper. Stewart Title filed a default notice on July 23.

Dr. Murray’s office in Houston and his home and office in Las Vegas were raided by law enforcement authorities in the past week. He is under investigation for his role in the singer’s death.

I live in Red Rock Country Club and I can tell you first hand that this doctor's house being foreclosed upon would be just a small blip in the number of houses that sit empty in RRCC because of foreclosure. P.S. I'm glad the news vans and helicopters are gone.

This guy's life is unravelling faster than a high speed train with no breaks. One can easily see why he became MJ's personal physician--money. It's clear Murry is no genius in handling money. I wonder where he finished in his medical class--probably last!

I predict he'll commit suicide rather than face what's about to befall him. His personal life is a mess, his businesses are failing, his reputation is gone and he's about to become homeless.

He has absolutely no way to recover in this situation. My guess is he'll never allow himself to go to jail. The prospect of losing all that he has gained will be too much for this egomaniac. Murray is too proud. If the authorities don't take him into protective custody he will complete the self destruction he has created.

Murray is deeply in debt even owing his school loans as well as non paid child support. Quite a character portrait. He is being disrobed in public. His life and career is over even if the charges aren't manslaughter. This creep has nowhere to go but further down. His facade of pretending to be successful and upright is being shredded every day the investigation continues.

If he lives to go to trial I, for one, will be surprised. If he does not you can bet he will have exited this earth by his own hand. The cops better move swiftly if they hope to get this loser into a courtroom and before a judge.

Stay tuned!

There is a major poll running over at www.tinyurl.com/evilgood as to whether Michael Jackson was good or evil. Evil is currently in the lead! I think this poll is being recorded in some sort of record book, anyways, everybody go vote for good!!

Although the overall events here are highly unusual, the basic fundamentals of the situation are commonplace and frequent. You have an employment situation where the boss or employer does not have the education or training to be able to analyze a question at hand and select a competent response. However, the boss has a lot of confidence in themselves and insists that it be done his way, irregardless of the advice they received. The technical professional is left with a choice of leaving his employment or compromising one's ethics and perhaps exposing themselves to a risk of being guilty of something. In my previous work in underground mining and heavy construction, this was unfortunately not necessarily an uncommon situation. In my case, I stuck with what was right and was thrown out of 3 jobs as a result, however, one was in a third world country, and another involved the honesty of reports to shareholders instead of the more common workplace safety concerns. I am sure that it is easier to leave a job when the salary is a regular engineering rate, as opposed to high pay, but any lost money is always a minor factor relative to the other issues.

lets be honest.michael jackson was a drug addict.drug addicts tend to die young.

dr murray was his pusher and what causes sudden death in addicts is the last dose from the pusher.

what ever way you look at it dr.murray is going to be the fall guy.lot of people are out of pocket because of michael's death.they want their money back.also the 52 concerts in london have to be refunded.

would it not be very fair to say that if dr. murrays medical insurance covers any wrong doing on dr. murrays part that there will be many happy faces among michael's business partners.

so looks like dr. murray should have entered michael into a rehab program instead of papmering to his addiction.

there are a lot of people waiting for dr. murray to fall.and fall he will.money is power.michael's debt is around $430ml.thats 430,000,000 reasons why dr. murray will fall

To the fuckwits who write on this wall ... learn to spell or fuck off. It is very irritating to read some half-baked idea from a cunt who cannot spell or write a sentence. And stop being so disrespectful to the good Doctor; he is a man of integrity. Jeez!!!
