A highly placed source close to the Michael Jackson investigation has told RadarOnline.com that Dr. Conrad Murray "is going down." There are multiple doctors under investigation but the source told Radaronline.com that Dr. Conrad "is the primary person being investigated," in connection with Michael's death.

The police have not publicly labeled this a criminal investigation but people close to the case say it is being treated as one. Police believe that Murray administered propofol to Jackson, which caused or contributed greatly to his death.

Propofol, a powerful drug used as an anesthetic, is administered with oxygen. RadarOnline.com was first to report that Dr. Murray was seen carrying large oxygen tanks in the house.

Douglas B. Jones, who worked as a chef for Jackson until shortly before the singer's death, told RadarOnline.com that he saw Dr. Murray with the oxygen tanks.
