Los Angeles County Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter has told exclusively that he had a private one-on-one discussion with Dr. Arnold Klein about the Michael Jackson death investigation.

Winter visited Klein’s offices in Beverly Hills on Wednesday, August 19, as reports surfaced that the dermatologist-to-the-stars was going to be charged in connection with the investigation.

Winter told Friday: “I met with Dr Klein privately for a lengthy time to corroborate medical records which Klein had turned over to our office weeks ago. At this stage in the investigation I cannot confirm if I removed further medical records from Dr Klein’s office.”

Following Winter’s dramatic visit, Klein’s lawyer Garo Ghazarian claimed that malpractice charges against his client were not imminent and that he was fully working with the coroner’s office in their probe. He said: “I have seen no cause for concern on behalf of my client.” -- who was present during Wednesday’s dramatic raid -- saw Winter pay a visit to the Mickey Fine Pharmacy in the same building, where Jackson picked-up prescriptions after his frequent visits to the dermatologist.
