A new report claims Dr. Conrad Murray allegedly stopped administering CPR on Michael as he lay unresponsive on the night of June 25, when Jackson died — and delayed calling 911 to get rid of vials of propofol, the powerful anesthetic that caused MJ’s death.

Alberto Alvarez, Michael Jackson‘s logistics director, has told investigators that Dr. Conrad Murray, MJ’s doctor, stopped giving the dying star CPR to cover his tracks, specifically, to dispose of drug vials in the room where MJ lay unresponsive.

According to an AP report (via PopEater), Murray, who was charged Feb. 8 with involuntary manslaughter in connection with the June 25 death of Michael, was administering mouth-to-mouth resuscitation to Michael in his home after Jackson collapsed — while Jackson’s children, Prince Michael, 12, and Paris, 11, “entered the room and cried” as they watched the terrible scene.

However, according to Alvarez’ account to investigators, Dr. Murray stopped doing CPR so he could “hand [Alvarez] drug vials” and Alvarez was told to “put them in a bag.”

TMZ had reported earlier that Alvarez told investigators he witnessed Murray hiding vials of propofol in a closet.

Jackson died of an overdose of propofol and two other sedatives, which were administered by Murray.
