Investigators in Michael Jackson’s sudden death have turned their focus towards the prescription drugs that the pop legend had been taking and a mysterious doctor who was with him when he went into cardiac arrest. Detectives with the Los Angeles Police Department’s Robbery-Homicide Unit reportedly were seeking to question a doctor who was in the late entertainer’s Holmby Hills’ mansion Thursday, when his heart stopped.
Dr. Conrad Murray, a cardiologist with offices in Las Vegas and Houston, was identified by a Jackson advisor as the 50-year-old singer’s personal medical expert for three years. Murray was hired by organizers to assure Jacko’s health during the comeback concert series that had been planned for next month at the O2 arena in London. Murray reportedly witnessed Jackson’s collapse and went off radar shortly after Jackson was pronounced dead.
A spokesman for the LAPD said that investigators had spoken to Murray briefly Thursday but they intended to speak to him again. It is reported that Murray was performing CPR when paramedics arrived at Jackson’s house Thursday.
