Drug agents and police turn over doctor’s office for evidence

Police and US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agents raided the offices of Michael Jackson’s personal doctor, Dr Conrad Murray, the Telegraph reports.

A dozen DEA agents went in the office in Houston, Texas, armed with a warrant and with detectives from the Los Angeles Police Department.

Dr Murray has been interviewed in connection with Jackson’s death. His role has come under scrutiny as he was present at Jackson’s Los Angeles home when the singer suffered a cardiac arrest.

Drug use questions

The investigation is believed to centre upon Jackson's use of the drug Diprivan, a powerful anaesthetic also known as Propofol, which was found in his home.

Dr Murray’s lawyer, Ed Chernoff, has neither confirmed nor denied that his client administered the drug to Jackson.

Dr Murray has faced questions over his apparent delay in alerting the emergency services and why he attempted to resuscitate the star on a bed when it is basic medical practice to perform CPR on a hard surface.
