Dr. Conrad Murray, Michael Jackson's personal physician and the man authorities believe injected him with a lethal dose of the surgical anesthetic Diprivan, issued a message late this afternoon to his supporters on YouTube.

In a one minute statement posted to the "Houstoncriminallaw" YouTube page, Murray said the following:

I want to thank all of my patients and friends who have sent such kind emails, letters and messages to let me know of your support and prayers for me and my family. Because of all that is going on, I am afraid to return phone calls or use my email. Therefore, I recorded this video to let all of you know that I have been receiving your messages. I have not been able to thank you personally, which as you know, is not normal for me. Your messages give me strength and courage and keep me going. They mean the world to me. Please don't worry — as long as I keep God in my heart and you in my life, I will be fine. I have done all I can do. I told the truth and I have faith that the truth will prevail. God bless you and thank you.
