Michael Jackson

Investigators have raided the Las Vegas home of pop singer Michael Jackson's personal doctor Conrad Murray, after only a week after Los Angeles California District Attorney officials confirmed they’re considering a manslaughter charge against. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agents showed up at Murray’s home this morning and executed a search warrant as armed cops stood guard outside the home. The road was closed to traffic and squad cars lined the street as the search was conducted. RadarOnline.com is reporting Murray's Las Vegas property has been under covert surveillance by Los Angeles and Las Vegas police for 48 hours. Yesterday sources close to the investigation surrounding Jackson's death suggested Dr. Murray administered the drug which killed the singer last month. A law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation told reporters Jackson regularly received the anaesthetic Propofol in an effort to sleep, adding Dr. Murray administered the powerful drug on the last night of the 50-year-old’s life. Murray was with Jackson when he died. Police in Texas have already raided a storage facility owned by Murray in Houston. The authorities were looking for "items constituting evidence of the offence of manslaughter". The bold move comes just a day after Murray’s attorney Ed Chernoff asked the media to stop speculating over his client’s involvement in the administration of the drug to Jackson. In a statement issued yesterday, Chernoff said, "It’s a waste of time responding to all these timed ‘leaks’ from ‘anonymous’ sources. I feel like a horse swatting flies. Everyone needs to take a breath and wait for these long delayed toxicology results. I have no doubt they want to make a case, for goodness sake, it’s Michael Jackson! But things tend to shake out when all the facts are made known, and I’m sure that will happen here as well." Toxicology reports carried out on Jackson’s body during an autopsy on June 26th are expected to be released this week.
