    how did Michael Jackson die?

    Michael Jackson died from an overdose of prescription drugs - propopol and anti-anxiety benzodiazepines: lorazepam and midazolam.  He was found by his Doctor near Los Angeles in Holmby Hills with a faint heart pulse.  An attempt was made to resusitate him but to no avail.  He suffered previously to his death with laryngitis and it is thought that the drugs were a way to overcome this in order to continue with his rehearsals.

    Dr Murray, who administered the drugs and attempted to bring him back to life, pleaded not guilty on the 8th February 2010.  He was allowed out on bail.

    The coroner pronounced it 'acute propofol intoxication.'  The drug propofol is an anesthesia that is not to be used for sleep problems or insomnia, the reasons Michael's doctor gave for giving the drug to him intravenously.

    Tessa, to answer your follow up question, I do not believe it was murder (as in intentional), I believe it was gross negligence on the part of the doctor. My understanding is that the drug he was given should not have been given in a home setting.  Also, the fact that the doctor stepped away was a problem because (from what I read) anyone under the influence of that drug should have been closely monitored.

    It's quite sad. We truly lost a legend. Regardless of his personal issues, he was a musical genius and loved by people around the world.
