New Raid In Michael Jackson Case

7/28/2009 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Federal DEA agents served search warrants on Dr. Conrad Murray's Las Vegas home and office today. They're on the hunt for Michael Jackson's medical records, among other things.


Law enforcement sources tell us Dr. Murray confessed to LAPD cops two days after the singer's death ... he administered the powerful anesthesia Propofol to Jackson hours before his death.

We've been reporting for two weeks LAPD detectives believe Dr. Murray administered the fatal dose of Propofol. Our sources say Dr. Murray gave Jackson an IV drip of the drug, which means it seeped into his system over a period of time.

Authorities believe Dr. Murray may have fallen asleep during the IV drip and when he awoke the singer may have already been dead from an overdose of the drug. We're told paramedics found an IV stand with an empty IV bag in the room.

As we have already reported, when cops went back to Jackson's house the Monday after his death, they found a stash of drugs hidden in a closet in the room where Dr. Murray was staying -- including the drug Propofol.

Authorities believe Propofol is the cause of Jackson's death.

The Assistant Special Agent in Charge said law enforcement officials were now moving on from Murray's home to search his office. The ASAC said the warrants executed this morning were for documents -- meaning anything from papers to computer hard drives.

Fiddy's Fortress -- Back on Da Market


50 Cent needs to wave his Magic Stick if he hopes to sell his Connecticut mega-mansion ... he just slashed the price another few million bucks in desperation.

50 Cent's Mansion For Sale

Fiddy says he's fed up with the 2-hour, too long commute to New York City and wants to trade in the 19-bedroom, 37-bath pad for a cut down crib in the city -- it was $18.5 million, then $14.5 million and now it's only $10.9 million.

50 shelled out $4.1 million for the 17-acre estate -- but says he spent $6 million on urgent upgrades like a disco complete with stripper poles.

Inside Neverland Ranch


Far from the lavish zoo/theme park/mansion it once was, Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch is now a barren, forgotten property that was once fit for a King of Pop.

I have never been a morning person. That does not work out too well when you have to get 3 kids ready for school in the morning. I have been a regular user of multi-vitamin packs and energy drinks for some time now. I really hated the "burn out" from the drinks and taking the vitamins alone really did not do much for me. I started taking Resveratrol Pills http://cli.gs/EternalRezv and I now love getting up in the morning and have the extra energy to exercise while the kids are in school. So I am a "skinnier" morning person too. I am so glad I found this ultimate supplement: http://cli.gs/EternalRezv

This is not about justice for Michael so much as it is about setting up the doctor for a lengthy and well publicized trial in the fall. This will distract from the coming plan to ratchet up the Swine Flu epidemic and the ultimate push to take the vaccine which will in turn make some pharmaceutical giants very happy. Further it will continue to support the conspiracy to embarrass and reflect indirectly on President Obama, an intelligent black male who happens to be Commander in Chief, by keeping as many black males who look act and appear intelligent, smart, famous or otherwise strong in the media in a negative light. That is why you are seeing a string black mainly MALE celebrities, athletes, intellectuals, etc. It will stop until and if black people in particular and all people in general get wise to the game of deception being played. It's called DISTRACTION, DIVISION, DECEPTION and ultimately continued DOMINATION of the masses. It always works because people are so predictable.

Look, the guy is dead, he was (STUPID) enough to let people inject him with drugs then the blame lies with him and no one else, QUIT trying to put the blame on the doctor. Michael wasn't the brightest star in the sky. NUFF SAID.

EHOUGH ALREADY! WE ALL KNOW THE DOCTOR GAVE HIM THE FATAL DOSE OF THE DRUG THAT MICHAEL HIMSELF ASKED FOR!!! MICHAEL WAS A DRUGGIE! A DRUG ADDICT AND IT SEEMS TO HARD FOR A LOT OF YOU MJ LOVERS TO GRASP! YES, THE DOCTOR WAS AN ENABLER. YES. BUT...AND I SAY BUT...IT WAS MICHAEL WHO WANTED THE DRUGS, HE WHO PAID FOR THEM, HE WHO ASKED FOR HIM AND IT WAS HE WHO USED DRUGS. SO, BLAME THE DOCTOR YES, BUT WOULD YOU PLEASE BLAME MICHAEL JACKSON FOR HIS OWN ACTIONS INSTEAD OF MAKING UP EXCUSES FOR THAT PIECE OF GARBAGE. HE WAS A DRUG ADDICT. IT IS THAT SIMPLE. HE KILLED HIMSELF PEOPLE! IF HE HAD NOT BEEN INTO THOSE KINDA DRUGS GUESS WHAT? HE WOULD BE HERE TODAY STILL BUT HE WAS HOOKED ON DRUGS FOR YEARS AND YEARS. SORRY TO BURST YOUR BUBBLES BUT THIS WACKO JACKO WAS NO GOOD. HE WAS A DRUG ADDICT, A TWICE CONVICTED CHILD MOLESTER, AND HE HAD NOT DONE A NEW ALBUM, A TOUR, NOTHING IS FOREVER. HE WAS WASHED UP. OLD NEWS. HE CREATED HIS OWN PERSONAL HELL AND THAT IS WHERE HE SITS TODAY. IN HELL.

If the doctor gave that wacko, sicko, weirdo any drugs which caused his death, the doctor should be getting a medal for killing a child molester. MJ was one ugly FREAK. Sleeping with little boys and playing with them in his bed. Sicko.
He died 50 years too late. Rot in hell, where the sicko is.

I think at least three will be named in Jackson's murder--two doctors and maybe that crazy elizabeth taylor. I don't trust that black nurse either--the one that came out on Tv right away and started devulging Jacksons medical. I don't trust her for some reason--as if she is covering for herself while pointing the finger at others.

Amazing! Why must everyone assume something criminal in the death of a famous person? It could be a crime or it could be an accident. People react so quickly to anything that has the opportunity to sensationalize. Hopefully, Michael Jackson died as a result of someone's carelessness, being worn out, forgetting to check the dosage. People just tend to want to assign the worst scenario to about any indicident in today's world. That's such a sad commentary on our times and our society. If only we would/could this make a "possible" drama until it becomes one!!!!

In essence, MJ committed suicide by requesting drugs on a regular basis. He was totally addicted to the sedative Propofol. One can't blame anyone but MJ for his death. MJ told Lisa Marie Presley that he was afraid he would end up like her father, and he did. She also said in an interview that after she divorced MJ that she kept in contact with him for some time and tried to get him to stop drugging but was unsuccessful. MJ was a certified drug addict.

Not the brightest star in the sky...? Are you serious right now? This man accomplished things that no one has ever done..including Elvis!! It doesn't matter how smart, dumb, rich or poor you are..addiction has no face. You don't sound very bright according to your comment. yes, Michael asked for the drug and yes he may have even paid for it, but what happened to ethics and morals? The doctor took an oath when he became a physician.. He was supposed to live up to that. I wouldn't care how much I was offered, someone's life is more valuable. Blame was placed where it should be...with the so-called doctor, who mysteriously disappeared from the scene and then suddenly reappeared with an attorney...What a joke, It's a tragic ending to a situation that could have been prevented if greed didn't prevail..Elvis was a drug addict too but we're not going to open that can of worms!! My prayers go out to his family and children. May God bless them all.

I most certainly agree he was an addict and is much responsible for his own death. But these doctors need to be stopped from this doing this stuff. How many people that are not celeb have died from this same problem. Only problem there is the world don't know about them. Doctors need to start paying the price for doing this. They need to learn money don't talk so much and to start saying no to this stuff. Maybe save some familys from so much pain that have to suffer when this happens. Also Jackson was not a convicted child molester. He was aquitted there for he is not convicted. So people need to get over that as much as get over Michael Jackson being an addict. I loved Michael Jackson to death but in my heart and head like I said he's as much to blame for his death as these doctors. But like I said again maybe this situtaion might help to save some one in the regular normal world from this same kind of death.

We finally get the truth we already knew, death by the hands of another. i am so saddened by the mire fact that Mj felt it necessary to get sleep this way, I suspect that other drugs stopped working as with all addicts they graduate to higher levels of use/form of drugs. In a nutshell this doctor knew better and only took the chance because he was getting paid 150,000 dollars a month to do so, if it were not this doc it would have been another, the price would have always been right for someone, somewhere, i just wish Michael could have gotten the help that he needed. Today I ache even more for his children and family, so, so senseless, and tragic.
