Michael Jackson’s alleged final IV drip is auctioned by his cousin.
A niece of Michael’s late father Joe Jackson, Marsha Stewart, says she took Jackson’s IV drip – which she claims sent the dose of Propofol that killed him in 2009 — from his bedroom after his death — and is now putting it up for sale.
She alleges that she stippled the IV bag in the rented Holmby Hills mansion where Jackson died. She says there was a “white milk fluid” inside it, which is consistent with Propofol and has now dissolved. Marsha says that when she spotted the blood on the IV, she immediately put it into her bag. A message on the auction site reads that Stewart is selling: “a Braun medical bag that was leftover from Jackson’s LA Sunset house. According to Stewart, it was obtained from the Michael Jackson estate on Sunset after his death”. It is now being sold through Memorabilia Expert Auctions in Las Vegas, with a starting price of $2,500.
US popstar Michael Jackson addresses a press conference at the O2 arena in London, on March 5, 2009. Pop megastar Michael Jackson announced Thursday he will play a series of comeback concerts in London in July, his first major shows for over a decade. Four years after his infamous child abuse trial, the 50-year-old eccentric singer confirmed he will play 10 gigs at the giant London O2 arena starting on July 8.
It seems odd that police would not have collected the IV as evidence at the scene. MJ’s Estate has not yet responded to these latest report.
As it was previously reported, Michael’s personal physician, Conrad Murray, was found guilty of the involuntary manslaughter and served two years of a four-year prison sentence over his death. He was released in 2013.
