Dr. Conrad Murray says jail food making him ill

Washington, Tue, 20 Mar 2012 ANI

Washington, Mar 20 (ANI): Dr. Conrad Murray has alleged that his diet at the Los Angeles County Jail is making him very ill, and he has lost 30lbs through chronic diarrhoea.


The medic is serving four years for the involuntary manslaughter of his former patient, singer Michael Jackson - who died in June 2009 of acute Propofol intoxication.


Dr. Murray claims the water in Los Angeles County Jail smells and tastes bad, and that he is living on a diet of "cat food."


According to, he is buying canned tuna for 4.25 dollars, salmon flakes for 3.50 dollars and canned mackerel for 2.50 dollars to survive on, telling friends only he and the cats are forced to eat canned mackerel.


The doctor is said to be filing multiple appeals in his attempts to get out of jail, mainly because his health is compromised.


However, a spokesperson, Steve Whitmore, for the jail claims conditions are better than other jails in the county.


"All inmates receive the proper nutrition and medical care that is required by law, but the Sheriff's Dept. goes above and beyond what is required," Contactmusic quoted him as telling TMZ.


In February Dr. Murray was denied bail by Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor as he poses a flight risk.


"The bottom line is the defence does not have significant property or employment or family ties in the Los Angeles or California area," the judge said.


"If he were to go to another country, that country might very well allow him to practice medicine," the Judge added. (ANI)
