Joe Jackson: Doctor charged in Michael’s death ‘the fall guy’

Joe Jackson, the father of Michael Jackson, says he believes the doctor charged for involuntary manslaughter in the death of his son is the “fall guy”.

Dr. Conrad Murray leaded not guilty Monday to involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson at a brief hearing. He is accused of giving Jackson a fatal dose of an anesthetic to help him sleep.

As he emerged from court, Joe Jackson declared, “My son was murdered”.

On Monday night, Joe Jackson also told CNN’s Larry King that he doesn’t believe Murray is the only person responsible for his son’s death.

He said, to me, he’s just the fall guy. There’s other people I think involved with this whole thing.

Joe Jackson told King his son believed his life was in danger.
