DEA Raids Office of Conrad Murray, Manslaughter Charges May Be Filed Soon

by at . Comments

The Houston office of Dr. Conrad Murray is being raided by authorities who are looking specifically for all medical records relating to Michael Jackson.

Murray was Jackson's personal physician at the time of his June 25 death. He is the focal point of police and coroner investigations into Michael's demise.

Eight DEA vehicles arrived at his offices around noon CST. LAPD detectives also arrived on the scene along with uniformed members of the Houston PD.

Reports say there are at least 10 members of the DEA's Tactical Diversion Team and another dozen or so DEA agents on hand as well. Serious stuff.

A search warrant authorized law enforcement to search for and seize items, including documents, they believe constitutes evidence of manslaughter.

Armed with a search warrant, law enforcement agents entered the Houston property and began going through medical records belonging to Conrad Murray.

The doctor may be looking at criminal charges for administering Propofol to Michael Jackson - with some sources saying it is more a matter of when than if.

Propofol is a hospital-grade anesthetic that should never be found outside a hospital, yet was found in Michael Jackson's home and body after the star died.

He obviously never intended to kill Michael Jackson, so murder is off the table - but manslaughter charges seem very realistic considering what happened.

For now, he is not charged with anything. Murray's lawyer, Edward Chernoff, issued the following statement regarding the investigation of medical records:

"The coroner wants to clear up the cause of death; we share that goal. Based on Dr. Murray's minute-by-minute and item-by-item description of Michael Jackson's last days, he should not be a target of any criminal charges."
