“They (family members) not only want jail time for anyone who contributed to Michael’s death, they also want to make them pay, literally,” a source close to the situation told

“They are determined to sue, even if there is no arrest.”

Dr. Conrad Murray is on their radar. Murray was scheduled to go on tour with Jackson and has clearly become a person of interest in the multi-agency investigation. His Houston office was searched by Los Angeles police and the Drug Enforcement Agency on Wednesday.

Dr. Murray insists he did nothing wrong.

Joe Jackson is leading the family charge on this, says the source, but Jermaine, Tito, Marlon and LaToya are with him and want to hold accountable any doctor who helped cause Michael’s death. “Some family members were estranged from Michael toward the end of his life but they want the world to know that he still had a family that loved him,” said the source. “They say they won’t let his death be in vain.”
