Jackson doctors bought anesthetic in Las VegasAugust 12th, 2009 - 7:11 pm ICT by IBNS
Aug 12 (IBNS) Latest reports emerging out from the investigation into the death of Michael Jackson has revealed that the pop star’s personal physician purchased a powerful anesthetic from a Las Vegas pharmacy.
The Washington Post reported that federal and local authorities searched Applied Pharmacy Services Tuesday morning and they have uncovered evidence that Conrad Murray legally purchased the anesthetic propofol there.
Jackson’s death is being investigated as manslaughter and the controversial substance propofol, which Jackson took as a sleep aid, is also under scrutiny.
Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agents and Los Angeles and Las Vegas police served a sealed search warrant and a notice of inspection around 9:20 a.m. at Applied Pharmacy Services, several miles west of the Las Vegas Strip.
“They are looking at everything that was provided by that pharmacy, including records of controlled substances,” DEA spokesman Jose Martinez said.
Murray, a Las Vegas-based doctor, was Jackson’s personal physician and was with the pop star when he died in Los Angeles on June 25. Las Vegas police have called the investigation for manslaughter but they have stopped short calling Murray as a suspect.
Investigators are trying to find out what medications could have caused the death of Jackson’s death at age 50. Murray admitted to the investigators that he administered the powerful anesthetic propofol and multiple sedatives to Jackson in the hours before he died.
