Jackson Doc Did Not Fully Cooperate

7/14/2009 5:42 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jackson Doc Did Not Fully CooperateThe assistant coroner who just went to Dr. Arnold Klein's office for Michael Jackson's medical records just confirmed our story -- that he went to the office because Dr. Klein was not fully cooperating with their request for documents.

Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter just told us ... on July 2 his office contacted Dr. Klein's office and requested Jackson's medical records. Klein's lawyer sent partial records and then promised to send the rest later, but never did. Winter told us his office then called Dr. Klein's rep to say they still hadn't received the documents but Klein's people never responded.

And Winter says, that's why he went to Klein's office today. Winter tells us a lawyer for Dr. Klein was in the office and another lawyer was on the phone. Winter says the lawyers promised to ante up the additional files within 24 hours.

This doc is obviously hiding something...I agree with the Jackson family that these docs are suspicious and there probably was 'foul play'.

I heard that Michael Jackson wanted to be cremated and have his ashes launched into fireworks. This SOUNDS AWESOME and I think the company's name was ANGEL'S FLIGHT. Does anyone know if he actually did that? They do it from the beach and the fireworks are beatiful and shoot out over the ocean. There are a few companies that do this, i think, but the one that I heard about was ANGEL'S FLIGHT. Very cool.

Has anyone read up on propofol addiction? I know Klein was not the doctor who administered this drug, supposedly. But I just read a couple of medical journal articles about lay persons (not a doctor or a nurse) who were self-injecting propofol. One guy apparently was injecting it 100 times a day until his wife found him unresponsive. Apparently this drug causes a craving that cannot be controlled. No wonder MJ was trying to score this drug.....he really was a full-blown addict. How very sad.

Hmmm, sounds like someone is trying to go threw the rest of the files to make sure certain items are removed.. 3 weeks not enough time to get arid of evidence? Either he is a lazy ass or the file is bigger then the encyclopedia..

Sure sure... the files he sent the first time were probably the same files he released the last time, which have already been gone through by Santa Barbara. Now he's changing all the records to be turned over of his recent visits.

Here's a question. Does Klein have a computerized medical record system or billing system? And why hasn't LAPD confiscated the computers?
