Law enforcement sources report that the LAPD investigation into Sam Lutfi allegedly drugging Britney Spears is well underway.
According to TMZ, the case has been assigned to Robbery Homicide, primarily because of the very sensitive nature of the allegations and the intense media scrutiny surrounding everything connected to Britney Spears.
Investigators have interviewed several witnesses regarding the drugs in Britney Spears' system at the time she was most recently committed.
Sources close to the investigation say it was temporarily derailed because of the death of an LAPD SWAT officer, but it's now back on track.
BAD SEED: The investigation of Sam Lutfi will conclude in March.
Mother Lynne Spears alleges that before her daighter was hospitalized - the second time - her supposed friend and manager, Sam Lutfi, drugged Britney.
As conservator of Britney's estate, her father, Jamie Spears, has obtained a restraining order against Lutfi. This bars him from contacting her.
In a strange twist, a New York lawyer - claiming Britney herself hired him - has challenged the conservatorship in federal court, though a judge isn't buying it.
