US federal agents search Las Vegas home of Michael Jackson’s doctor

They're reportedly seeking evidence of manslaughter

US federal agents today (July 28) raided the Las Vegas home of the doctor who was with Michael Jackson when he died last month.

Agents from the US Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) as well as the Los Angeles Police Department searched the home and office of Doctor Conrand Murray looking for evidence of manslaughter, reports the Associated Press.

This is the second time in the past week that Murray‘s property has been searched. DEA officials also searched his Houston office last week.

Results of Jackson‘s autopsy reports are still pending, so investigators are going on the theory that Murray administered the 50-year-old pop star the narcotic Propofol to help him sleep on the day of his death (June 25). Also known as Diprivan, the drug may have caused the pop star’s heart to stop.
