Dr. Murray's Computer Seized In Jackson Probe

Police officers investigating the death of MICHAEL JACKSON seized technological equipment during a raid on DR. CONRAD MURRAY's house - taking the medic's private cell phone and computer.
Last week (beg20Jul09) Los Angeles District Attorney officials confirmed they're considering a manslaughter charge against Murray and on Tuesday morning (28Jul09) officers from the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) swooped on his Las Vegas residence.
Armed cops surrounded the property, while DEA investigators searched the house for medical records relating to Jackson - and his various aliases - and other evidence that could help them build a case against the medic.
On Monday (27Jul09), sources close to the investigation into the King of Pop's death suggested Dr. Murray administered the drug which killed the singer last month (25Jun09).
Murray's lawyer, Ed Chernoff, released a statement confirming the purpose of the police visit to TMZ.com: "We can verify that at approximately 8am, Officers from DEA, LAPD (Los Angeles Police Department) and various local agencies began executing a search warrant at Dr. Conrad Murray's Las Vegas home and office. The search warrant authorised investigators to look for medical records relating to Michael Jackson and all of his reported aliases. Dr Murray was present during the search of his home and assisted the officers. Investigators left Dr. Murray's home around 12 noon, seizing cell phones and a computer hard drive."
Toxicology reports carried out on Jackson's body during an autopsy on 26 June (09) are expected to be released this week (ends31Jul09).
