    Michael Jackson Doctor Investigation Will Go into 2010
    By Howard Breuer

    Saturday November 21, 2009 10:10 AM EST

    It will be at least a couple of more months before authorities decide whether to arrest Dr. Conrad Murray, the personal physician who treated Michael Jackson before his death.

    "A decision (on whether to prosecute) will be made in 2010. It is not going to be made this year," LAPD Commander Patrick Gannon tells PEOPLE.

    Although Jackson's June 25 death was ruled a homicide by the county coroner, which found lethal levels of the toxic anesthetic propofol in his body, and Murray admitted to administering propofol at Jackson's bedside to help him sleep, authorities have to determine whether Murray was solely responsible, and to what extent any negligence can be considered criminal.

    According to a search warrant unsealed Friday, Murray "said he was not the first doctor to introduce Jackson to propofol. ... Jackson referred to it as his 'milk,'" and Jackson had several doctors locally and abroad who gave him propofol.

    Police are being careful, and consulting with other agencies including the state medical board and the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office, which will ultimately decide what charges to file, if any, Gannon says.

    "We have taken our time with this to make sure it's done correctly," Gannon says.

    Michael's sister, Janet Jackson, and other family members say they blame Murray for Jackson's death, but the doctor has consistently denied any wrongdoing.,,20321918,00.html

    Jackson referred to it as his 'milk,'

    D'you know I'm fed up of reading that, it keeps being put that way, as if it's a phrase that Michael coined, it isn't, it's referred to as 'Milk of Amnesia' by medical professionals.

    Warrant Applied Pharmacy Services Las Vegas

    Post  Moonlight on Sat Nov 21, 2009 8:54 pm

    Detective Orlando Martinez asked a Las Vegas judge this AM to keep search warrant documents related to Applied Pharmacy secret until January 18. Law enforcement sources told us previously cops didn't want the warrant made public until the investigation was completed.

    As we first reported, the LAPD believes Applied Pharmacy supplied Dr. Conrad Murray with the Propofol that ultimately killed Michael Jackson. They are on the hunt to make sure other pharmacies didn't supply Propofol.

    Jackson Pharmacy Search Records to be Unsealed

    (11-19) 17:56 PST LAS VEGAS, (AP) --
    A Nevada judge decided Thursday to unseal records of a warrant served at a pharmacy where authorities believe Michael Jackson's doctor bought the drug blamed in the pop star's death.
    The documents will be available Friday, after Clark County District Court Judge Valerie Adair signs a court order being drafted to make the ruling official, said Adair's clerk, Penny Wisner.

    "The court finds there is not a sufficient basis to keep the affidavit sealed," Adair said in a written order after speaking privately by telephone with a Los Angeles County prosecutor seeking to keep a seal on the warrant documents.

    A day earlier, a Los Angeles police detective asked the judge by phone to keep the records of the Aug. 11 police raid at Applied Pharmacy Services sealed until Jan. 18. He argued releasing them would jeopardize the investigation.

    Attorney Colby Williams, representing The Associated Press, Los Angeles Times, TMZ Productions Inc. of Los Angeles and Stephens Media LLC, the parent company of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, argued there was no reason for the documents to remain secret.

    "We consider this to be an important investigation into the death of one of the world's most well-known entertainers," Williams said. "The public has a right how these investigations are conducted."

    A law enforcement source told AP after the raids that investigators believed Jackson's personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, bought the powerful sedative propofol from the Las Vegas pharmacy on May 12, and administered doses from that purchase to Jackson in the hours before he died June 25.

    Murray is the focus of a homicide investigation, but has not been charged with a crime.

    Affidavits already made public show that Murray told investigators he gave Jackson propofol and other sedatives to help the 50-year-old singer sleep in the hours before he died in a rented Los Angeles mansion.
    Murray, through a spokeswoman, maintains he neither prescribed nor administered anything to Jackson that should have killed him.

    Dr. Murray Search Warrant in Jackson Case

    Dr. Murray Search Warrant in Jackson Case

    The judge has unsealed the search warrant issued against Applied Pharmacy Services in Las Vegas ... where authorities believe Dr. Conrad Murray obtained the Propofol that ultimately killed Michael Jackson

    According to the affidavit, during the search of Dr. Murray's home and office, cops recovered a sales receipt from Applied Pharmacy. The receipt showed that on May 12, 2009, Dr. Murray purchased 4 100 ml vials of Propofol. He also purchased 3 vials of benzos. One of the drugs Murray purchased -- Flumazenil -- is actually an antidote to a benzo, used to counteract the effects of benzos.

    The receipt for the drugs totaled $853, with a $65 FedEx fee to overnight the drugs.

    The affidavit states that cops were on the hunt for Visa and FedEx information linking Dr. Murray to the sale of Propofol by Applied Pharmacy.

    The affidavit says at the scene of Michael Jackson's death at his home, Propofol was recovered "in Dr. Murray's doctor's bag and on the bedside table." The Propofol was in 20 ml and 100 ml bottles.

    According to the affidavit, Dr. Murray told cops he was not the first doc to introduce Jackson to Propofol. Dr. Murray stated Dr. Arnold Klein and Dr. Allan Metzger had given Jackson medicine that was not working.

    And there's this ... according to the docs, "Detectives interviewed Grace Owanda (sic), Jackson's children's nanny. Owanda stated that Jackson was currently being treated by Dr. [Arnold] Klein and the last physician to treat Jackson was Dr. Larry Koplin."

    Warrant Documents:

    Warrant: Drug in Jackson case came from Vegas firm
    By KEN RITTER (AP) – 1 day ago

    LAS VEGAS — Court documents show police linked a drug blamed in Michael Jackson's death to the pop singer's personal physician who bought it at a Las Vegas pharmacy.

    Search warrant records released Friday show that authorities raiding Applied Pharmacy Services on Aug. 11 sought paperwork showing it was the place Dr. Conrad Murray bought several vials of the powerful sedative propofol.

    Records show a receipt obtained in a July 28 search of Murray's Las Vegas medical office showed he bought propofol May 12 and administered doses from that purchase to Jackson in the hours before the singer died June 25.

    Murray is the focus of a Los Angeles police homicide investigation, but he has not been charged with a crime.

    Attorneys for The Associated Press and other media outlets obtained the release of the documents this week.
