It was business at usual at Dr. Conrad Murray’s office in Houston until a group of LAPD officers and Drug Enforcement Agency officials crashed into the building at 11:30am Wednesday.
RadarOnline.com has learned that Murray was not present at the Armstrong Medical Clinic in Montgomery Road, Houston, when the raid took place but that his staff were preparing to treat some patients.
A Houston Drug Enforcement official on the scene told RadarOnline.com: “We have been helping the LAPD with this investigation for the past few days culminating in them obtaining an official sealed search warrant from Harris County in Houston.
“We entered the building at around 11:30am and we had some specialized ‘Tactical Diversion’ officers on hand to help with the operation as well as several Drug Enforcement Intelligence Officers who are specially trained to go through files pertaining to this kind of investigation. We should be in the building for at least one hour and all files removed will be handed over to the LAPD as this is for their investigation. I can confirm that Dr Murray was not present when we entered the building although several staff members were inside the office at the time and they co-operated fully with us. Once the operation is finished they will be free to continue to treat patients who may be visiting them today.”
Dr Conrad Murray is front and center at the investigation into Michael Jackson’s death last month.
Murray was the superstar’s personal doctor who tried to perform CPR on the 50-year-old after he fell ill at his Holmby Hills mansion in Los Angeles on June 25.
Once the LAPD detectives have gone through any medical files that they remove during today’s raid they will want to question Murray once again about Jackson’s death.
Results from both the coroner’s office autopsy and the family’s private one are expected to be released early next week.
