Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter just left nurse Cherilyn Lee's office ... he walked out with Jackson's medical records.

We asked Lee about Jackson's use of the drug Propofol -- she says he asked her for it but she never gave it to him.

Winter retrieved files from Dr. Arnold Klein last week.

UPDATE: Winter has left the building with medical records. He said Lee was cooperative and is not under investigation.

UPDATE: We spoke with Lee after Winter left -- she says she thought she'd convinced Jackson not to take Diprivan, he was feeling good and a great father figure.

I'd also like to add...this is what these people get for plastering their faces all over tv and doing interviews no one asked them to do. But I do believe this nurse has nothing to hide. She seems like she's ethical from what we've seen.

she's about to go down and lose her career from a 20 year plus addiction. it isn't right! michael jackson chose to use drugs for decades. it killed him, and he is the cause of his own death. i liked michael jackson, but i can't side with the legal outcomes from his death.

If the Jackson's want to really bring anyone to the spot light why not bring Michael's nephews to the stage the group 3T. Has anyone seen these guys. They are gorgeous and have pretty good voices. They definately have the look to drive girls crazy. I would love to see them brought into the spot light. Everyone should check them them out they even have one song out with Michael Jackson, it's good.

3. I wonder if they're doubting her story that she never gave Michael Propofol? Perhaps she was just skirting the issue and was a source...

It'll call come out in the trial...

Now that I read your post..It's possible she could be involved although I'm kind of hoping she isn't just for the sake of knowing atleast one person said NO to Michael, but if she is involved I'd have to say she's very stupid for coming out with information that could land her in jail also.

CNN - HLN just reported, while Michael Jackson laid dead in the Morgue, personnel were walking in an out of this room, out of curosisty, and all said the same thing. Michael Jackson's body was bruised all over and the most startling thing they all saw, was a hole where his nose should be. Like many imagined, he had so much plastic surgery, he had a prosthetic nose! Dr. Klein never admitted to that on Larry King. Sorry news, but glad it came out. In fact, it took all this time for it to come out and I for one believe it!
I hope they get to the bottom of this Murder in the Second Degree for Murray and the rest in the house and all the other doctors throughout the years, manslaughter for all of them. They all enabled him. These were professional people, not on the street drug dealers, these people were educated to help people and they should be dealt with harshly.

Wow.....they actually ARE going to get to the bottom of this sordid, sad mess.
And give Michael, and his children the justice that they so rightly deserve.

I was wondering what happened to her. She just disappeared after she was the tv for a while. She did mention that she didn't give the drug to MJ and after that he cut her off.
