While collecting medicine and other evidence from the King of Pop’s bedroom after he died, investigator Elissa Fleak was caught various times by the prosecutor in contradictory statements.


Updating information in the People vs. Conrad Murray case, The Associated Press reports Fleak said she found a bottle of medicine on the floor that was actually photographed and shown on a nightstand. They also had images showing an IV pole and saline bag in two different places.


When asked if she conducted a perfect investigation or ever conducted a perfect one, investigator Fleak replied “no.” The AP notes she said no investigation is perfect.


Fleak was assigned to MJ’s case June 25, 2009, the day Jackson died.
