Jackson Used Employees' Names to Score Drugs

7/10/2009 3:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson went to a variety of doctors to get strong narcotics and used multiple aliases (including the names of several employees), this according to notes compiled during the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's investigation back in 2004.

Sheriff's detectives interviewed Chris Carter, who worked as Jackson's bodyguard prior to the Sheriff's raid of Jackson's home in 2003. According to Sheriff's Department notes obtained by TMZ, Carter said he would get Xanax prescriptions for Jackson under various fictitious names. Carter told detectives that Jackson would even use his name and the names of other employees to score prescriptions.

In addition to using his name, Carter said Jackson would use the names of Frank Tyson (a Jackson employee who was a prominent figure in the molestation trial, having had numerous contacts with the accuser's family), Jesus Salas (Ranch manager) and Joe Marcus (another Jackson employee) to get prescriptions.

Various pill bottles were found at Jackson's Neverland Ranch. One bottle of Alprazolam (generic for Xanax) was prescribed for Frank Tyson by Dr. Arnold Klein. A bottle of Prednisone found at the Ranch was also prescribed by Dr. Klein in the name of Peter Midani.

A bottle of Percocet, a narcotic painkiller, was found with the name Michael Armstrong, prescribed by Dr. Gerald Labiner.

A bottle of ERY-TAB, an antibiotic, was found with the name "M,M." The prescribing doctor was Dr. Carey Logan from Las Vegas.

A prescription receipt from a pharmacy was found for Alprazolam (generic Xanax) and written for Frank Tyson by Dr. William VanValin. Another receipt from Dr. VanValin was for written for Xanax in the name of Manuel Rivera.

Prednisone is a steroid - it might be used to treat autoimmune conditions (like lupus)

So, even TMZ must know the effect of the accusations made on Michael Jackson.... They killed MJ long before his death. What will the world do to the people who caused MJ's death? I think TMZ is a notorious killer of peace and respect... of hopes and future. The boys and the parents who accused MJ of molestation should be hanged so hign after being beaten unconscious. Levin should be skewered with a bamboo (like a pig he is) and roasted over an open fire! Who in the world still searches for the cause of death and poison he may have taken? You know who... and you know how, and what poison he had... It's TMZ and the people who wants nothing but redicule Michael and his famiy! For these people, they and their family must suffer the worst of death ever, just to touched the evil they made Michael experienced! If I were a witch, I would putting a hex on each one of them... May they have worms and snakes coming out of their mouths everytime they open their mouths.... Any witch out there, put me in your service, if you will get these monsters, poor excuses of a man, taste a dosage of their poison!!!

"Elvis Presley's doctor went to jail. If things are as bad as they sound, it's amazing these guys didn't book a flight to the Cayman Islands sometime last week.

MJ's drug problems seem to have come from dance injuries he got back in the eighties. 40 years of dancing takes a toll on the body. The biggest star in the world just made the biggest supernova.

Have we not learnt anything from past events, when a person is no longer available to speak up for themselves, out crawl those pesky little insect type souls, with a million tales to tell. Every strives for those few moments of fame, sadly we share this earth with those who do not care if it is on the back of a dead legend. !! My pity goes out to these people as "what you sow in this life will come back at you in some shape or form later down the road" I wonder who does not store medications in their home,???? just in case, I also wonder who if they had the resourses, would not try to find peace as Michael did. Nothing and nobody can take away from this man his achievements in such a short lifetime. Those who try are simply lacking in their own minds.. R.I.P Michael.. Your fans will always love you, No matter what they say..

"One bottle of Alprazolam (generic for Xanax) A bottle of Percocet,
A bottle of ERY-TAB, an antibiotic,
A prescription receipt from a pharmacy was found for Alprazolam (generic Xanax)"

There's nothing wrong with having the above meds.

Hmmm, you show a bottle with the name "Michael Armstrong" on it, but that name never appears in your story ........ why is that?

I'm sure there's a lot of Michael Armstrongs in the country that aren't happy with that. I use to date one in college ... lol

MJ WAS KILLED INTENTIONALLY BY SOMEONE, OR MORE THAN ONE PERSON!!!! MY OPINION, MY INSTINCT!!!!!!! I FEEL IT!!!!!


460. ''Michael Jackson had injection sites on his neck, according to law enforcement sources.''

IF THIS IS TRUE..THEN MY THEORY THAT SOMEONE CLOSE...TO MJ, KILLED HIM!!!!! THIS IS PROOF!!!!
THE WORST DRUG ADDICT, WOULD NEVER INJECT HIMSELF..IN THE NECK!!!! NO WAY!!!!

THIS WAS AN ANGRY, HATEFILLED, VIOLENT PERSON... STABBING HIM IN THE NECK, FOR HORROR, REVENGE, MONEY, MAYBE PAYBACK? WHILE, INVENTING THE COVERUP FOR THE SO-CALLED ''INTENTIONAL OVERDOSE!!!!!!!''

USING MJ'S HABITS...TO COVER THE CRIME. WHO WOULD GET SATISFACTION,,FROM GIVING MJ THE LAST HIGH??????????? AND, WHY???

ANGER/HATE REVENGE CRIME!!!???
MONEY MOTIVE TOO, JUST THE BEST PART OF THEIR WIN/WIN..

GET HIS KIDS OUT OF THAT HOUSE, BEFORE PIMP DADDY USES THEM FOR MONEY-CASHCOWS!!!!!!!!!!!!


IN MY MIND I HEAR THIS... ''SO BOY, YOU WANT DRUGS?? I'LL GIVE YOU DRUGS BOY!! YOU AINT GONNA PISS YOUR MONEY AWAY AND LEAVE US WITHOUT THE MILLIONS!!!'' HERE!!!''
