The doctor convicted in the death of Michael Jackson has invited the late pop star's mother to visit him in jail, CNN’s Alan Duke told HLN’s Dr. Drew Thursday night.
“I got a call from Conrad Murray's lawyer tonight,” Duke explained. “Murray [says he] has seen the coverage of Katherine Jackson on television and feels bad for her. He says she looks sad, and so he has sent through me, through his lawyers … a message to Katherine he’s going to put her on the jail visitor’s list.”
He added, “[Murray] says, ‘It would give me great pleasure to sit one-on-one and answer any questions she might have that would put her at peace.’”
Duke also reported online that a representative for Katherine Jackson would present the offer to her, but doubted she would accept.
Four of Katherine Jackson’s children recently took her to Arizona for 10 days without letting Michael Jackson's three children speak to her, which has caused great turmoil amongst family members. News coverage of the ongoing feud among members of the Jackson family apparently prompted Murray's offer, Duke stated.
Last November, Murray was sentenced to four years in prison after a jury convicted him of involuntary manslaughter in Jackson's June 25, 2009, death.
