Delay in Jackson Case -- The Ghost of OJ

11/15/2009 10:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson's homicide investigation is taking longer than expected because -- as one law enforcement source connected with the case said -- "We've had bad luck with big cases like OJ in the past, and we don't want to repeat those mistakes."

Michael Jackson OJ Simpson

The source also pointed to the Robert Blake case, which some experts believe was also botched. But the source added, "There is not a problem with the case. Time is on our side. We want to do this right." The L.A. County D.A.'s office and the LAPD are working as a unit to "anticipate defense strategies and prepare for them." The D.A.'s office is actively involved, requesting lots of info from the LAPD.

One of the issues: authorities have keyed in on Applied Pharmacy in Las Vegas -- they want to make sure there are no other pharmacies that sent the Propofol in question to Dr. Conrad Murray.

Another issue: authorities have gone back to their medical experts for more input, as "strategies have changed" in a case they call "very complicated."

As for when the investigation will wrap: now authorities are saying they'd like to end it "before the Christmas holidays".... but that could get pushed to January.

Muitos se importam com a Morte de Michael.
Esses muitos somos nós FANS INCONDICIONAIS que o respeitamos e o amamos em toda a sua grandesa, por tudo que ele representou e continuará a representar em nossas vidas.
Michael foi um ser iluminado que só quiz conscientizar as pessoas
que cada um tem o poder de fazer a diferença desde que cultive o amor em seu coração.
Por tanto muitos se importam sim.
Esses muitos querem justiça.
I LOVE YOU FOREVER "Michael Jackson"

to all those who say "who cares? hes just another dead junkie" il say that YOU people are what is wrong with the world today- the problem with the world today is that people like you DONT care about someone youve never met, maybe its about time you do start caring for others?! i care for Michael with all my heart and no matter what happens in the case i will continue to care for him because he is/ was a fellow human being!! xxx

JUSTICE is better late than never. If they never get another case right, lets hope they get this one close. They already botched it by not locking down the house. But old Conrad murderer helped them out on this one. He should get another 10 years out of for not telling the truth to start with. The man botched this for the get go. GUILTY GUILTY GUILTY
