From CNN:

Los Angeles, California — Michael Jackson’s father suspects his son was murdered and that Dr. Conrad Murray is “just a fall guy” in a conspiracy.

Joe Jackson appeared on CNN’s “Larry King Live” on Monday night, just hours after sitting in a courtroom to hear Murray plead not guilty to a single charge of involuntary manslaughter in his son’s death last summer.

A Los Angeles judge set bail at $75,000, despite arguments from the prosecutor that Murray is a flight risk and needs a higher bail. Murray posted the bond and was released several hours later.

Michael Jackson’s family, including his parents, four of his brothers and one sister, filled the first two rows of the small courtroom.

“I was looking for justice, and justice, to me, would be a murder charge,” Joe Jackson told King.

Prosecutors charged Murray, who was Jackson’s personal physician, with causing the pop star’s death “without malice” by acting “without due caution and circumspection.”

Murray was with the pop star when he died on June 25, 2009.

The Los Angeles County coroner ruled Jackson’s death a homicide, resulting from a combination of drugs, primarily propofol — a powerful anesthesia — and lorazepam.

Joe Jackson suggested it was more than a doctor making a fatal judgment.

“To me, he’s just a fall guy” Jackson said. “There’s other people, I think, involved with this whole thing. But I think that he’s interrogated — he would come clean and tell everything he knows.”
