Police are searching the car of Michael Jackson‘s private doctor for clues on the cause of the pop star’s death.
Police say they believe the vehicle may contain medication or other evidence that could aid the coroner in determining what caused his death.
They also told the Associated Press that they do not know the identity of the doctor, but would like to interview him even though he is not under criminal investigation.
Brian Oxman, a spokesperson for Jackson‘s family, said he believes that Jackson’s death was due to medication abuse, as previously reported, and that his use of medication had “got in the way” of his rehearsals for his scheduled residency at London‘s O2 Arena.
Jackson was taken to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles yesterday (June 25) after suffering what is believed to be a cardiac arrest at his home.
A team of doctors tried unsuccessfully to resuscitate him for more than an hour before he was declared dead.
Jackson‘s autopsy is set to take place in Los Angeles later today (June 26).
