While it’s been repeatedly claimed Jackson abused the narcotic drugs Demerol and Oxycontin, Chernoff maintains they were not prescribed by Murray.
“Dr. Murray certainly wasn’t prescribing or administering those drugs to Michael Jackson,” Chernoff told “Dateline.” “Now, if toxicology comes back and shows those drugs in his system, it will be a surprise to us.”
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, Murray was questioned by investigators for approximately three hours on Saturday. As of now, he is considered a witness to the tragedy, not a suspect.
