Michael Jackson London, July 11 (ANI): The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) has launched a murder investigation into King of Pop Michael Jackson’s death, owing to the mysterious circumstances surrounding the case.

Police chief William Bratton has revealed that the singer’s medical records have been subpoenaed.

He said that since the late star appeared to have died after allegedly taking a cocktail of prescription drugs, somebody has to face trial over his death.

Bratton revealed that they had seized a number of items from the singer’s home at the time of his death, and were waiting for toxicology reports to come in.

“Based on those we’ll have an idea of what we’re dealing with. Are we dealing with homicide? Are we dealing with an accidental overdose? What are we dealing with?” the Daily Star quoted him as saying.

“At the time of the death with search warrants, we were able to seize a number of items from the residence where the death had occurred and those will assist in the investigation,” he added.

The news came after Jackson’s father, Joe, alleged that his son was murdered.

At the time, Joe insisted: “I do believe it was foul play. I do believe that. Yes.”

Meanwhile, homicide police were reportedly on the look out for Jackson’s several former doctors, and will also be re-arranging interviews with all the current medics involved with the star, who died aged 50 on June 25. (ANI)
