Both Michael Jackson Autopsies Reveal Propofol

You may recall that Michael Jackson's family commissioned a second autopsy on the star's body after the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office conducted one.

Well, the results are in and they are not any different.

A source with knowledge of the findings from both autopsies tells E! News that the private pathologist's findings are consistent with the county coroner's.

In addition to finding needle marks on Jackson's body, both procedures revealed a potentially lethal amount of Propofol in the late singer's system.

Propofol is a potent anesthetic administered via IV that leaves people in a largely comatose state. It should never be found outside a hospital, but it was.

Police found it in Jackson's Holmby Hills mansion after he died June 25.

Jackson's personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, has not been charged with any crime, but many believe he may be at some point, as he may have administered Propofol to Michael, which would almost certainly be in violation of the law.

County officials confirm Jackson was taking prescription medications when he died, but they aren't expected to make public their full autopsy report until at least next week because of the ongoing, possibly criminal investigation.

Federal regulators are considering adding Propofol to their official list of controlled substances, which would require hospitals to account for every drop used.
