It is unclear if the district attorney official is from Los Angeles or Las Vegas, but sources tell 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, 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.

Celebrity Death was first to report that Murray was seen carrying oxygen tanks around Jackson’s home. Propofol is always administered with oxygen.
