Michael Jackson Doctor, Conrad Murray – Manslaughter Charges?

Michael Jackson death investigation may be coming to a conclusion

There were growing signs Wednesday morning that the half-year investigation into the death of Michael Jackson could be coming to a conclusion.

L.A. prosecutors continue to decline comment on when — or if — they will charge Jackson’s personal physician in connection with the pop star’s death. But law enforcement sources have told The Times it’s possible a decision will come sometime this week.

A lawyer for the Houston-based doctor, Conrad Murray, said Tuesday that his client is in Los Angeles and prepared to surrender if authorities file charges against him.

“I don’t have any specific information that leads me to believe he is going to be charged this week,” lawyer Ed Chernoff said, “but if he is, we’ve made it clear he’s available to turn himself in.”

The arrival of Murray and Chernoff, his lead attorney, from Houston set off a new round of speculation that authorities, who have been mulling a manslaughter case against the doctor since last summer, were about to file charges.

A spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office declined to say whether prosecutors planned to file a case against Murray. “All I can tell you is that we have not filed anything. When and if we do, we will let everyone know at one time,” spokeswoman Sandi Gibbons said.

The Zoo goes on…

Michael Jackson’s Doctor May Have Been His Pusher

Saw a report last night that claimed Jackson was paying Dr. Murray $150,000 a month – but that Murray had several defaulted debts in the $400,000 range…

$150k a month will buy a whole lot of poison.

Agents descend on Vegas home of Jackson doctor

LAS VEGAS — Authorities searched the sprawling Las Vegas home and medical office of Michael Jackson’s personal doctor Tuesday, seeking documents as part of a manslaughter investigation into the singer’s death.

Los Angeles police and federal Drug Enforcement Administration agents entered Dr. Conrad Murray’s home in a gated community while others across town searched Murray’s medical offices, Global Cardiovascular Associates Inc.

Michael Flanagan, assistant special agent in charge of the Las Vegas DEA office, said the warrants were sealed and he couldn’t say what documents agents were seeking. He said he expected the search would last five hours.

It was the second time in less than a week that investigators targeted Murray’s property. Last week in Houston authorities searched his clinic and storage. Court records show they were seeking evidence of whether the doctor committed manslaughter.

With toxicology reports pending, investigators are working under the theory that Murray gave Jackson the powerful anesthetic propofol to help him go to sleep, and the drug caused his heart to stop, a law enforcement official told The Associated Press. Murray told investigators he administered propofol sometime in the early morning of June 25, the day Jackson died, according to the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing.

The official told AP that Murray left the bedroom where Jackson was sedated and returned to find the star unresponsive.

Police have said Murray is cooperating and have not labeled him a suspect.

Gotta go with Nina here…
