The deaths of Michael Jackson, Brittany Murphy and Corey Haim raised questions regarding prescription drugs, and have sparked an investigation, sources report.
The California State Attorney General's Office is investigating a number of doctors who prescribed meds for the aforementioned stars, all of whom died recently.
Several dozen doctors are being investigated for allegedly prescribing medication without medical justification. The A.G. is also looking at their various aliases.
Sources say between 25-30 doctors are being "actively investigated." As we know, Dr. Conrad Murray already faces a manslaughter charge in the Jackson case.
He may not be the last. Two doctors who prescribed drugs to Anna Nicole Smith also face charges in connection with the former Playboy model's 2007 death.
The deaths of these stars beg many questions about the ethics of prescribing certain drugs, and have now prompted a California Attorney General's office investigation.
Continuing this disturbing trend, Haim's death earlier this month has already been linked to a massive drug ring, with a criminal investigation sure to follow.
