Search warrants in Jackson case released

A NEVADA judge released search warrant documents on Wednesday similar to those previously disclosed in the investigation of pop singer Michael Jackson's death.

However, Clark County District Court Judge Valerie Adair kept other documents sealed for at least 30 more days at the request of police conducting a homicide investigation.

Adair refused to disclose documents relating to an August 11 search of a Las Vegas pharmacy where authorities say Jackson's personal physician, Dr Conrad Murray, bought the powerful anesthetic propofol.

The Los Angeles County coroner has ruled Jackson's death a homicide, caused primarily by propofol and another sedative. Murray has not been charged with a crime but is the focus of the police investigation.

The newly released documents contain a summary of the police investigation through July 24, including Murray's insistence that he was not the first doctor to administer propofol to Jackson.

Police were investigating whether prescriptions came from multiple doctors in violation of professional and criminal codes against excessive prescriptions and prescribing to addicts, the documents state.

The affidavit listed the names of a dermatologist, general practitioner, anesthesiologists, plastic surgeon and nurse practitioner who treated Jackson.
