A representative from the district attorney’s office is supervising the raid on Michael Jackson’s doctor’s home and office, RadarOnline.com learned exclusively.
Authorities served search warrants on Dr. Conrad Murray’s Las Vegas home and office Tuesday. They had previously raided his Houston office.
Los Angeles police, Las Vegas police and the Drug Enforcement Agency are involved in the Las Vegas raids.
It is unclear if the district attorney official is from Los Angeles or Las Vegas, but sources tell RadarOnline.com the official is there “to make sure everything is done by the book.”
A locksmith was brought in to open the door to Murray’s Las Vegas house, RadarOnline.com learned. But the locksmith wasn’t needed as someone was inside and opened the door for authorities.
Murray has become a focus of the investigation into Jackson’s death and multiple reports say he administered the powerful anesthetic propofol to the singer. Track marks were found on the singer’s body and he had trouble sleeping.
RadarOnline.com was first to report that Murray was seen carrying oxygen tanks around Jackson’s home. Propofol is always administered with oxygen.
The Los Angeles District Attorney will have first shot at prosecuting Murray, sources have told RadarOnline.com.
And RadarOnline.com learned that sources close to the investigation say Murray would likely face an involuntary manslaughter charge.
Police have had Murray’s home, which is in a gate community, under surveillance secretly for 48 hours, RadarOnline.com reported exclusively earlier Tuesday.
