How it was: Michael Jackson's death bed pictured in the hours following his death

At the very moment on Monday that Conrad Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in Jackson's death, reporters were taking a private preview tour of the three-storey home where the pop star lived and died.

The bedroom shown in evidence photos at Murray's criminal trial was actually considered a 'medication room' by the Jackson team.

Murray was found guilty of supplying an insomnia-plagued Jackson with the powerful operating-room anaesthetic propofol to help him sleep as he rehearsed for his comeback.

Jackson maintained an adjacent bedroom that he regarded as his inner sanctum - a private place only for him. It is in this second bedroom that the pop star wrote a message to himself on the mirror of an antique armoire.

'TRAIN, perfection, March April. FULL OUT May,' it reads. Jackson was to begin his London concert run in July.

His private bedroom included a bathroom larger than most living rooms and two massive walk-in cupboards.

Among the items for sale in the medication room, where evidence was collected for Murray's trial, are upholstered chairs smudged with Jackson's makeup and the deathbed, which looks out to an expansive back garden surrounded by tall trees with a large swimming pool and a pool house, where the singer's son Prince carved his name on a candle.
