Police search Jackson doctor's home, office

[cnn-photo-caption image=http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2009/images/07/29/art.conrad.murray.house.cnn.jpg caption="Investigators arrive at the Las Vegas, Nevada, home of Michael Jackson's personal physician."]

LAS VEGAS, Nevada (CNN) - Investigators searched the Las Vegas home and office of Michael Jackson's personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, on Tuesday morning, a Drug Enforcement Administration spokesman said.

Los Angeles police and DEA agents, carrying search warrants, were "looking for a lot of things," said Assistant Special Agent in Charge Mike Flanagan.

Aerial cameras showed investigators leaving Murray's home, three hours after they entered, carrying several containers.

The searches came a day after a source with knowledge of the investigation confirmed to CNN that Murray administered a powerful drug that authorities believe killed the singer.

Flanagan said that while he could not disclose details of the search warrants, because a judge had ordered them sealed, he confirmed they were looking for documents and computer records.

Murray's attorney, Ed Chernoff, issued a statement saying that officers from the DEA, Los Angeles police and "various local agencies" executed a search warrant at Murray's home and office beginning about 8 a.m. (11 a.m. ET) Tuesday.

"The search warrant authorized investigators to look for medical records relating to Michael Jackson and all of his reported aliases," the statement said. "Dr. Murray was present during the search of his home and assisted the officers."

Investigators left Murray's home about noon, he said, taking cell phones and a computer hard drive. "As of 2 p.m., the search at Dr. Murray's office continues," the statement said.

    Many thanks for giving out that astounding information. One sure can learn a lot from it. One has to be disciplined, work organized and structured in order to run a successful home office and to overcome all these disturbances and disruptions. I use Outlook to download my emails from my various online accounts and thus I have the advantage that I can use the add-in Email Sorter Wizard that helps me to organize my email inbox too. One can define rules fast and with ease to make Email Sorter Wizard sort and file incoming and outgoing emails. Great post and I am sure every reader enjoyed reading it.

    Not possible on the suicide theory. He had to be administered the drug as a doc has to giv it to you in the hospital. He would not even have been finished before he went to sleep! Out goes the lights before he could have even counted back from 10 ...to 6. To giv him a shot in the heart, the doc had to have known. This is a murder,plain and simple! I said this the moment I heard the 911 call, and then to hear the changes of the stories, then on to his workers clearing out storage facilities within 2 hours after MJ's death! He appearantly did not even know how to provide CPR properly and the 911 operator had to tell him to put the hurt man onto the floor! Heck, I even knew that as he said it! How can he be a doc, and not even know how to administer CPR?? And, they want more docs in the medical field that are not completely educated? Wow! This is what you would get! You will end up knowing more than the doctors! Aren't we all looking forward to that day?? The evidence may be gone, but his full admission can not dissappear as easily! Hey, his meal ticket will now be paid for anyway! While in a 6' by 6', he will have all his meals for free. It will give him the well needed time for reflection on his days of GREED!

    Does anyone think that MJ might have just administered the drugs to himself? Suicide possibly?

    Is it just me, or does it seem curious that this "doctor" took charge and kept the EMS team working on Michael for 42 min. when it was clear to them that Michael was gone? Diprovan quickly dissolves and essentially disappears from the body once administration of the drug stops! So, the more time that elapses, the more time for it to be gone. Evidence gone.

    Could you just imagine being paid 150.000 dollars a month thats pretty much enough money for bribery to get most any thing you want but it looks like the good doctor killed his meal ticket. he could plead insanity telling the court that he's just crazy about money?
