Looks like the investigators and the DEA’s attention has now turned to Michael Jackson’s personal doctor, Dr. Conrad Murray. This has happened after the first phase of autospy results of Michael Jackson’s body were avaiable. The autospy reports confirmed that Michael Jackson did die of drug overdose. Based on the autopsy reports the LAPD has registered Michael Jackson’s death as murder and began investigating into how he was murdered.
Today with a search warrant indicating that Michael Jackson’s death is being investigated as a manslaughter, a team of Los Angeles Police Department detectives and federal drug agents swooped into the Houston medical clinic operated by the pop star’s personal physician Wednesday and seized documents and computer files.
The warrant signed by a Harris County District Court judge and executed on the offices of Dr. Conrad Murray was the strongest indication yet that authorities are considering serious criminal charges in the performer’s sudden death June 25.
“The search warrant authorized law enforcement to search for and seize items, including documents, they believed constituted evidence of the offense of manslaughter,” said the doctor’s lawyer, Edward Chernoff, in a statement.
USC law professor Jean Rosenbluth, a former federal prosecutor, said the reference to manslaughter in the search warrant provides some insight into detectives’ interpretation of the evidence but ultimately may be irrelevant.
“You get a search warrant because you are investigating the possible commission of a crime, but all of this is just at the investigatory stage. All the time there are investigations where no one is charged with a crime in the end,” she said.
She said that when the deceased is a global icon, “they are not going to leave any stones unturned.”
“With the whole world watching they would want every ‘t’ crossed and every ‘I’ dotted,” she said.
