Home Of Jackson's Personal Doctor Raided By Dea

The home of MICHAEL JACKSON's personal physician DR. CONRAD MURRAY has been raided by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) - as authorities continue their investigation into the pop superstar's tragic death.
Murray was with Jackson when he went into cardiac arrest at his rented home in Los Angeles on 25 June (09) and performed CPR on the star before emergency crews arrived.
Just last week (22Jul09), Murray's Houston, Texas offices were raided by the DEA and officers from the Houston and Los Angeles Police Departments, who searched for evidence "of the offence of manslaughter", according to Murray's lawyer Ed Chernoff.
Authorities seized a number of documents relating to Murray's treatment of Jackson from the Armstrong Medical Clinic, including medical notes, details of any drugs the star was taking, and records of any medication Murray had prescribed to the singer.
On Tuesday (28Jul09) officers wielding a search warrant swooped on Murray's Las Vegas, Nevada residence.
The move comes just a day after Chernoff asked the media to stop speculating that his client administered the powerful anaesthetic Propofal to Jackson - who reportedly regularly received the drug as a sleep aide - on the last night of the 50-year-old's life (24Jul09).
Chernoff, Murray's attorney, released a statement Monday (27Jul09) that reads, "It's a waste of time responding to all these timed 'leaks' from 'anonymous' sources. I feel like a horse swatting flies. Everyone needs to take a breath and wait for these long delayed toxicology results. I have no doubt they want to make a case - for goodness sake, it's Michael Jackson! But things tend to shake out when all the facts are made known, and I'm sure that will happen here as well."
Toxicology reports carried out on Jackson's body during an autopsy on 26 June (09) are expected to be released this week (ends31Jul09).
