Michael Jackson’s father Joe has appeared on TV in the US, and is blaming his son’s doctor for his death.

Jackson went on Larry King’s show on CNN last night (July 20) to make the claims.

He said that cardiologist Dr. Conrad Murray gave him something to ”make him rest, and then he don't wake up no more. Something is wrong there”.

Jackson also said that the doctor fled after his’s death and it took investigators three days to find him.

"This doctor, he ran away. They had to look for him three days to find him. To me that is foul play," Jackson said.

Several bottles of propofol were found in Jackson's home following his passing. The drug is usually only administered in hospitals.

Dr. Murray has already been interviewed by police. He is not a suspect, but is a person of interest as he was the one who tried to revive Jackson at his home on June 25. His car was seized as police wanted to search it for drugs.

Michael Jackson passed away on June 25 after suffering cardiac arrest. The toxicology report is due next week.
