Jackson's Doctor's Office Raided


The lawyer for Dr. Conrad Murray, the doctor who was with Michael Jackson when he died, just released this statement to Showbiz Tonight.

“We can confirm that a search warrant was executed today on Dr. Murray’s offices in Houston, Texas. We reviewed the warrant and remained on the premises while the search was being executed. The search was conducted by members of the DEA, two Robbery – Homicide detectives from the Los Angeles Police Department and Houston Police officers. The search warrant authorized law enforcement to search for and seize items, including documents, they believed constituted evidence of the offense of manslaughter. Law enforcement concluded their search around 12:30pm, and left with a forensic image of a business computer hard drive and 21 documents. None of the documents taken had previously been requested by law enforcement or the L.A. Coroner’s office.” -Ed Chernoff

    & you finally have to get up because your eyes, mind & body are worn
    out trying to sleep & can't. you feel as if you're never going to be normal

    Ridiculous to call Nurse Lee "ethical". If she was ethical, she would have reported the alleged abuse to the DEA.

    She knew and did nothing and now is whining about how she "tried" to "warn" her patient.

    She should have contacted the authorities immediately.
