This weekend, Julien's Auctions sold off hundreds of items from Los Angele's 100 North Carolwood Drive, the address where Michael Jackson and his kids were living when he died. Many of the most sought-after bits were those that were visible in the crime scene photos displayed during Dr. Conrad Murray's trial. The auction house recreated Jackson's bedroom for display but referred to it as "the medicine room." From CNN:
A small table that sat next to the bed where Jackson spent his last living hours in a desperate search for sleep sold for $5,000. The "French occasional table" was listed for between $300 and $500. It was a centerpiece of several key crime scene photos at Murray's trial, because several bottles of sedatives were found on it.
The oriental rug on which paramedics tried to revive Jackson sold for $15,360, although the auction catalog placed its value at between $400 and $600. It, also, is prominent on photos shown at the trial.
Julien's backed away from selling the bed in which Jackson received the fatal dose of the (propofol) after a personal request from his mother, Katherine Jackson, Nolan said.
