Anesthesia in Jackson Case Tracked

7/14/2009 7:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

We've learned several pharmaceutical companies have been contacted by the DEA in the Michael Jackson case and we're told authorities are getting closer to identifying which person may have supplied the powerful anesthetic Propofol that appears to have killed the singer.

Sources tell us law enforcement found vials of Propofol in Michael Jackson's house after he died. The vials all have lot numbers. We're told several days ago the DEA contacted Teva Pharmaceuticals -- which manufactured one of the vials found at the house -- to determine who purchased it.

Teva sells Propofol to medical distributors, who then turn around and sell the vials to hospitals and doctors.

And, law enforcement sources say, the DEA also contacted other manufacturers of Propofol from the other vials found in Jackson's home.

Here's the problem. Although every vial has a lot number, the vials are not marked individually. There are thousands of vials in a lot. So the DEA and LAPD are trying to hone in on the culprit but, we're told, it's no easy task.

Who cares who gave it to him? He's the dumb ass that took it. We all can overdose on tylenol if we take too many. Should we then sue CVS. Let's move on.

72. THANK YOU TMZ.COM FOR YOUR CLEAR AND HONEST REPORTING ON MICHAEL ,THE INVESTIGATIVE TEAMS IN L.A. ARE SOME OF THE BEST AND THE FINEST I HAVE FAITH IN THEIR ABILITY TO GET TO THE FACTS. I am sure that there was foul play,NO DOUBT IN MY MIND WHAT SO EVER, have said that since the very beggining,also,every security guard and on duty doctor at Michael's home was well aware of what Michael was eating and not eating and they were watching him slowing die and a doctor, this doctor was still administering him hospital grade medications. Also, the from many photographs of Michael his nails had become dark brown in color which meant that he wasn't receving any kind of nutrients at all a decent doctor should know this. The only new addition to Michael's enviroment of hidden deceitful persons was the evil doctor. He doesn't look very good and neither does the nanny nothing but darkness and confusion and resentment and lies surround these two,not to mention the entire group of persons at the home of Michael was surrounded by manipulators and deceivers , suspicious activity and behaviors. Michael really didn't trust any of them and had been feeling for quite sometime very unsafe in his own enviroment as well as the outside enviroment. It is a horror to see such good persons ,God-fearing and loving ,kind, gentle persons suffer. I have no sympathy for an evil person who suffers,but somtimes they are too clever and tend to be able to escape with lies,but they can't escape from karma and God's punishment and it will be on the backs and foreheads of all of the guilty persons and from what I see it will sting them one way or the other and it stings faster when the person who was hurt was very pure as Michael was . Michael was a victim of envy of the worst kind, and was surrounded by nothing but betrayal and confusion of all kinds. Where did the doctor run too by foot as he left his car there, where did he go?, what did he hide? money? Propfol? Why did the doctor place Michael on the bed and not on a hard surface to revive him as is required to implement the process of CPR. I have also read that he placed one hand underneath his back and the other hand on his chest to perform CPR, you have to feel some type of hatred or resentment or envy to treat a person like that. I had seen many interuptions in the relationship of Michael and Grace and that Grace harbors much resentment towards Michael and there were many arguments, so I wasn't surprised at all to hear that Michael had fired this hidden demon several times,it did not surprise me at all, but once he fired her he should have let her stay fried. Absolutely, nothing is right about Michael 's passing at all, so many people doing so many things at the same time to Michael for money,all was about money, a small conspiracy instigated by parties in that group to get more money,all about money the whole bad lot of them, so now they must pay for the money that they got.

My daughter was molested and I can tell you my first instinct was to kill the SOB. I actually went so far as to load my .38 but thought betterr of it and went to the police instead. THAT is why I find it hard to believe that Evan Chandler's son was really molested. The outrage you feel is beyond my ability to express, and your first thought isn't about money, I guarantee it. At least, not most people's. I don't care if it was Michael Jackson with all his money, he'd either be dead or in jail. Someone said earlier you don't know unless you've been there - BEEN THERE. Money doesn't enter the equation at all, at least not until you've seen their ass go to jail. I know because I sued him in civil court too and won a pretty penny for my daughter, not that it changed anything. But it helped her pay for all the counseling she needed as she got older. So there's my answer to your question.

Here's another FACT:

FOX NEWS ran a story about JORDAN CHANDLER on Saturday, August 19, 2006


According to court papers obtained by this column, the young man who, in 1994, settled with Michael Jackson for $20 million was allegedly physically assaulted last year by his own father.

Jordan Chandler, now 26, filed a request for a restraining order against his father on August 5, 2005. The reason for the order was that Evan Chandler, formerly a dentist and an aspiring screenwriter, had allegedly hit Jordan over the head from behind with a twelve and a half pound weight. He’d also allegedly sprayed him in the face with mace and tried to choke him.

I GUESS THAT TYPE OF MONEY WOULD ALSO MAKE YOU WANT TO KILL YOUR OWN CHILD!!!!!!!

Has anyone noticed that "Propofol" is an anagram for "pop or flop"?

Could MJ have taken the drug because he was no longer King of POP and had become a FLOP?

Think about it.

Its a well know story the the blacks in PA are the worst racists ever to walk the world-
when a black group give concerts the beat the hell out of non blacks after the shows-- no press--
and then the smash the town to hell--about the swim club--shame !
so stop with blaming the white man in PA

How many people in this world are over prescribed by their doctors? How many doctors give addictive drugs to their patients, who then do whatever they have to do to supply their habit. These kind of things happen all the time but usually the poor person never would have a case against the doctor, nor would they have the DEP or FBI involved in the case. Or what about the person who gets addicted to a prescribed drug and commits a crime because they need to supply their habit....they go to jail but now, if Michael Jackson's doctor is charged, all those people now have cases against their doctors. Don't get me wrong, I thought Michael was the best, but he had a terrible addition and used his power and money to get what he needed. His family knew for years about his addition and what did they do?????

To: Betty Boop, your name sounds a little like trash and you seem to come from a background of persons that would do that kind of a thing(lie) It comes very easy to people like you no doubt. It's people like you who lower yourselves and steal from others using phlemsy lies and disgusting indecent stories to do that with. You sound as though you belong on the street so why don't you just go back where you came from. All persons know that Michael is innocent and it's no secret how low people will go to acquire money and you no doubt seem to be of that type of a character. I bet you 1000%. Karma awaits you too, it's just around the corner and it doesn't miss the guilty ones like yourself .
