Michael Jackson's Doctor's Clinic Raided by DEA
Dr. Conrad Murray, who was Michael Jackson’s personal physician, continues to be under investigation. KTRK-TV in Houston has reported that Murray’s Houston clinic has been raided by Federal DEA agents today.
It is not clear what the Federal DEA agents are seeking. Murray’s attorney, Edward Chernoff, is reported to say that investigators in California are seeking more information from Murray in addition to the medical records already provided.
Murray who was Michael Jackson's personal physician and was with Jackson when he died has his main office in Las Vegas. He is also licensed to practice medicine in California and Texas.
An official cause of death has yet to be determined for the pop star, but the coroner's office is expecting to release autopsy results next week. It should provide two important facts: whether propofol and any other drugs were present in the 50-year-old singer when he died June 25, and whether the levels were toxic.
Propofol is an intravenous sedative-hypnotic agent for use in the induction and maintenance of anesthesia or sedation. It requires the presence of a trained physician be present with monitoring of the patient and their vital signs while under the drug’s influence. When used improperly or when given in too large a dose, the drug can cause cardiorespiratory depression.
