A second chef has confirmed a story broken exclusively by that Dr. Conrad Murray was using oxygen tanks at Michael Jackson’s home -- adding credibility to the theory that the powerful sedative Propofol played a role in the superstar’s death.

Douglas B. Jones, a chef hired by Jackson shortly before he died, previously revealed to how he witnessed Murray carrying the tanks  through a side door at the Holmby Hills mansion in Los Angeles.

Now, Kai Chase, another personal chef to The King Of Pop has told the Associated Press that when she arrived for work, she would also see the doctor walking around carrying oxygen tanks, which are used to regulate oxygen levels in the body of a patient who has been put under anesthesia.

He would routinely arrive at the mansion around 9pm before going up to Jackson’s bedroom and would often stay the night.

When Murray did not come downstairs on the morning of June 25, Chase thought that Jackson was sleeping late.

She said: "I started preparing lunch and then looked at my cell phone and it was about noon. About 12:05pm or 12:10pm, Dr. Murray runs down the steps and screams 'Go Get Prince' he's screaming very loud. I run in the den where the kids are playing. Prince runs to meet Dr. Murray and from that point on you could feel the energy in the house change. I walked into the hall and I saw the children there. The daughter was crying - I saw paramedics run up the stairs. We were all praying, 'Help Mr. Jackson be okay' - then everyone went quiet."

At around 1:30pm, the security told them to leave the property because Jackson was being taken to hospital.

When she went outside the ambulances were in the courtyard and a crowd had already gathered before the emergency vehicles raced away to UCLA Hospital where Jackson was later pronounced dead.

Authorities are continuing to investigate Dr. Murray as they weigh whether to file any charges against anyone suspected of giving Propofol (tradename Diprivan) that could have resulted in his death.
