DEA agents and members of the LAPD raided Conrad Murrayâ€™s Houston office Wednesday morning. Read more and see photos and video here.
Conrad Murray, the man present at the time of Michael Jacksonâ€™s death, has long denied any wrongdoing with regard to the case. Now Murrayâ€™s attorney, Ed Chernoff, has indicated that he is currently being investigated for possible manslaughter charges.
According to sources, the raid was centered on the drug Propofol and its relation to Jacksonâ€™s alleged intravenous use. According to Chernoff, the warrant:
â€śAuthorized law enforcement to search for and seize items, including documents, they believed constituted evidence of the offense of manslaughter.”
Along with 21 documents, authorities also left with an image of the hard drive of one of the computers at the Armstrong Medical Clinic in Houston. According to reports there were close to two-dozen officers involved in the raid.
The drug Propofol, or Diprivan, has been an internet buzz-word since shortly after Michael Jacksonâ€™s death. Normally it is used as a sedative to knock people out before surgery is performed. When Jackson died, there was evidence left behind at his rented LA Mansion to suggest the use of the drug. The drug is seldom used outside of a hospital/surgery setting, which immediately raised questions about who provided Jackson access to it.
One interesting fact related to the raid is that the owner of the clinic, Davill Armstrong, has reportedly been investigated before. Fox News claims that the state medical board suspended his license because of â€śconcerns about Armstrong’s judgment, competency, and general medical knowledge.â€ť
Obviously there is much to clear up regarding Jacksonâ€™s death. The official cause of death has yet to be announced because officials are still awaiting the results of toxicology tests.
