LAPD detectives have executed at least three search warrants in their attempt to determine whether prescription medication played a role in Michael Jackson's death.
Sources familiar with the investigation told the Times that the warrants were part of an effort to reconstruct the performer's medical history, a task made difficult by the number of physicians who treated Jackson over the years.
At least five physicians who prescribed medication to him are under investigation, sources have told The Times. The searches by detectives of the Robbery-Homicide Division were dated Wednesday, indicating they had been completed in the week after his death.
A Superior Court spokesman confirmed that Judge Charlaine Olmedo signed off on three searches, but said information about what detectives were looking for and whether they found it was sealed from public view.
Everything about them is sealed, but they do exist," spokesman Allan Parachini said.
