A judge has unsealed a search warrant issued against Applied Pharmacy Services in Las Vegas, where authorities believe Dr. Conrad Murray obtained Propofol.

In case you don't know by now, that's the powerful anesthesia police believe killed Michael Jackson, and Murray, his personal physician, was administering it.

The affidavit says at the scene of Michael Jackson's death at his L.A. home, Propofol was recovered "in Dr. Murray's doctor's bag and on the bedside table."

In order to make their case, police are looking to pin down Visa and FedEx information linking Dr. Conrad Murray to the sale of Propofol by Applied Pharmacy.

According to the affidavit, during the search of Dr. Murray's home and office, police recovered a sales receipt from Applied Pharmacy - dated May 12, 2009.

On that date, Dr. Conrad Murray purchased four vials of Propofol.

Police are trying to tie Dr. Conrad Murray's conduct to Michael Jackson's death.

He also bought three vials of benzos, and another drug, flumazenil, which is actually considered an antidote to a benzo, and is used to counteract benzos.

The total cost of the drugs: $853, with a $65 FedEx shipping fee.

After Jackson died June 25, Dr. Murray told police he was not the first doc to introduce Jackson to Propofol. Dr. Murray stated that Dr. Arnold Klein and Dr. Allan Metzger had given Jackson medicine that he says was not working.

And there's this: "Detectives interviewed Grace Owanda (sic), Jackson's children's nanny." That's Grace Rwaramba, who is in fact MJ's children's nanny.

"Owanda" stated that Michael Jackson was currently being treated by [Dr. Arnold Klein] and the last physician to treat Jackson was Dr. Larry Koplin."

And we wonder why the investigation is taking forever ...

Dr. Conrad Murray, Michael Jackson's personal physician, is gearing up to sue AEG, the entertainment company sponsoring his ill-fated This Is It tour this year.

AEG was paying Murray's costs as he served as MJ's doctor. Michael died June 25 of an apparent overdose of Propofol, a strong anesthesia, it is widely believed.

According to Miranda Sevcik, publicist for Dr. Murray's lawyer, Ed Chernoff, AEG still owes the good doc $300,000 - two months' pay - and is "dragging its feet."

Conrad Murray has not been paid for his services, in spite of the fact that he claims he signed a binding deal with AEG before giving up his medical practice.

Doctor Conrad Murray

Dr. Conrad Murray seeks money for "services" rendered.

He will not file a creditor's claim against Jackson's estate, but Murray "needs the money and he's entitled to money based on the contract he signed with AEG."

AEG did not comment, but we wouldn't hold our breath if we were Conrad.

After all, he was being paid to keep Jackson healthy in preparation for and on tour. That tour never ended up happening because of ... well, it's obvious, isn't it?

The guy died. Murray was responsible for his treatment. Janet Jackson blames him and he is the target of a months-long homicide investigation by the LAPD.

Somehow, we're guessing that may nullify the contract. Just a hunch.

In an interview with ABC's Robin Roberts, Janet Jackson is not holding back when it comes to Dr. Conrad Murray, the man she believes killed her brother Michael.

Of Michael Jackson's former personal physician, the target of an LAPD homicide investigation, Janet says: "He was administering ... I think he is responsible."

Dr. Conrad Murray has admitted to administering Propofol, a powerful anesthetic, to Michael Jackson to help him sleep, but claims he didn't kill the King of Pop.

In the interview, airing Wednesday, Janet says Murray, who may face manslaughter or even murder charges, should no longer be allowed to practice medicine.

Of Michael's death, she adds "It's been a tough year ... You have your days where it's just hard to believe. And a day doesn't go by that I don't think about him."

Janet Waves

Janet Jackson is opening up about her brother's tragic death.

She recalled the fateful day of June 25, when she learned her brother passed away. "I was at my house in New York. You know, another day. Another morning."

"Then I get a call ... [my assistant] said, 'Your brother's been taken to the hospital. It's on CNN right now. I called everyone. I spoke to mother. I spoke to my brother Tito. I spoke to my nephew Austin. I spoke to my sister La Toya."

A tearful Janet Jackson added, "I told them to call me when they got to the hospital. And I remember thinking nobody's calling me back, so I tried calling again, and that's how I found out that he was no longer ... I couldn't believe it."

"It just didn't ring true to me. It felt like a dream. It's still so difficult for me to believe. It's, you know, you have to accept what is. But it's so hard. You have to move on with your life. You have to accept what is and I understand that."

Investigators probing the death of Michael Jackson say Dr. Conrad Murray was on the phone with his girlfriend, Nicole Alvarez, as the music icon was dying.

Dr. Murray, Jackson's personal physician, was on a cell phone with his girlfriend in Houston between 12:03-12:13 p.m. on June 25, 2009, when MJ passed.

The girlfriend told LAPD detectives that about five minutes into the call, she heard Dr. Murray abruptly drop the phone and then heard him administer CPR.

Nicole Alvarez said there was no indication Dr. Murray, the sole focus of the criminal investigation, knew anything was amiss before dropping the telephone.

She does not know if Murray was in the room with Jackson when he called her or if he walked in just before realizing the pop superstar was in deep trouble.

Dr. Conrad Murray's role in Michael Jackson's death is still being investigated.

A bodyguard at Michael Jackson's home called 911 at 12:21 p.m., around 13 minutes after Dr. Conrad Murray reportedly dropped the phone during the call.

It has been widely reported Dr. Murray was on the phone for 47 minutes before calling 911, possibly in an attempt to cover up what had just taken place.

Other accounts of the death timeline suggest it may have taken over an hour for the call to be made. Needless to say, it's hard to pin down what happened.

But this new timetable is more favorable for him, as it now appears those calls may have been placed before Dr. Murray realized Jackson was in distress.

Dr. Conrad Murray, the personal physician of Michael Jackson and the primary target of the police investigation into the singer's death, is hampered by it too.

He can't take care of his kid as a result, he says.

According to documents filed objecting to a pending arrest warrant against him for not paying his support, Dr. Conrad Murray explains the following crock:

"As a result of the media coverage of Michael Jackson's death, combined with the effects of the recession, [Murray] is simply unable to meet his obligations."

Murray's lawyer says the doctor has no intention to "evade his obligations."

But Murray "is temporarily unable to maintain a practice or obtain employment because of extensive media coverage related to the death of Michael Jackson."

Some of the facts the media is highlighting - such as Murray potentially having helped kill the greatest entertainer of all time - can't be positive PR, no.

The attorney says "one of the reasons he went to work for Michael Jackson was to pay this off" but that he never actually got paid by MJ for his time.

Again, possibly related to Dr. Conrad Murray not keeping him alive.

Murray is asking the judge to allow him to make "minimal payments." Meanwhile, he'll be looking for a job. He should try LinkedIn, like Sarah Palin.

Baby mama Nenita Malibiran (the mother of his 10-year-old son) obtained a judgment last month for $13,311.47 for missed child support payments.

She'd better pounce on those minimal payments while she can even get that much. Murray is expected to be charged in Jackson's death any time.

It's been a rough couple of months for Dr. Conrad Murray.

Not only is he likely responsible, at least in part, for the death of the world's most popular entertainer, but he's being sued for back child support! Rough!

Regarding his ongoing child support case, the doc says he and his new lawyer are determined to make all non Michael Jackson-related problems go away.

Problems he can make go away, that is.

Murray only has four more days to report to a Las Vegas court before a judge will issue a bench warrant for his arrest for missing a child support hearing.

Conrad was a no-show October 7.

His new lawyer, Chris Aaron, says that MJ's personal dcotor is desperately trying to work out a "temporary resolution" with the District Attorney's office.

Aaron says Murray has a perfectly good explanation for going MIA, saying, "It was not intentional missing his court date - it was simply an oversight. Dr. Murray has every intention of resolving and taking care of his personal responsibilities."

Murray is accused of stiffing baby mama Nenita Malibiran out of $13,311.47 in payments for their 10-year-old son. That will get you in serious trouble.

But not as much as when you fuel Michael Jackson with Propofol, a powerful anesthesia which the L.A. County Coroner says killed the music icon.

A criminal case could be imminent.

Looks like Dr. Conrad Murray could be in real trouble with the law, and it has nothing to do with Michael Jackson and everything to do with child support.

Nenita Malibiran claims Murray, the suspect in the Michael Jackson case, and father of her 10-year-old son, is way behind in child support payments.

Malibiran, who now lives in the Sacramento area, obtained a judgment last month in San Jose, Calif., for $13,311.47 from Jackson's personal doctor.

The judgment was sent to the District Attorney's office in Las Vegas, Nev., which honors and enforces child support judgments from out of state.

Yesterday, the D.A. went before a hearing master (not a judge), who is supposed to hear the evidence and recommend appropriate action to a judge.

Dr. Conrad Murray was ordered to appear but was a no-show.

The hearing master recommended that a bench warrant be issued against Dr. Murray, who has 10 days from yesterday to come into court and deal with it.

If he doesn't, the judge will issue a warrant for his arrest - if he's not facing more serious charges in the death of Michael Jackson prior to that, of course.

Malibiran's former lawyer, Julie Brown, was quoted as saying that Dr. Murray was "habitually behind" on child support and was always "hiding income."

It has no bearing here, but Murray is also believed to have knocked up Nicole Alvarez, his current girlfriend, who welcomed a child earlier this year.

The LAPD will present the case against Dr. Conrad Murray, the sole suspect in the June 25 death of Michael Jackson, to the L.A. County D.A.'s office next week.

LAPD detectives planned to wrap up their exhaustive homicide investigation and present the case by the second week in October. They remain on schedule.

Authorities are waiting on some written evaluations by medical professionals who reviewed evidence surrounding Jackson's death of a suspected overdose.

Law enforcement sources say the medical reports are finally in and the LAPD plans to formally present the case to the D.A.'s office at some point next week.

After that, the D.A. will determine whether to file charges and what kind.

Dr. Conrad Murray Picture

Conrad Murray was Michael Jackson's personal doctor at the time of his death.

Prosecutors have been working with the LAPD for months now, so it's not as if the evidence will be a surprise. Sources say Dr. Murray remains the sole target.

A law enforcement source says there's a "70/30 chance" the D.A. will take the case to the L.A. County Grand Jury rather than charge Dr. Conrad Murray directly.

Murray's girlfriend, Nicole Alvarez, is expected to testify.

The source says this could be a complicated case - obviously - and the very lengthy preliminary hearing that could ensue wouldn't have much upside for prosecutors.

A grand jury indictment would prolong the process, as it would have to be seated and evidence presented, but it would be easy to get and avoids a hearing.

Stay tuned ...

Randy Quaid and wife Evi were arrested last week for skipping out on their bill for a stay at a hotel in Santa Barbara.

Considering Quaid is a successful actor with a seemingly healthy bank account, that's strange - but it's not the strangest aspect of this story.

According to Radar Online, private investigator Becky Altringer says Evi Quaid has a connection to Conrad Murray; yes, the same Conrad Murray suspected of playing a major role in the death of Michael Jackson.

Altringer claims Mrs. Quaid also used the shady doctor to fill numerous drug prescriptions, including one for Demerol, which she allegedly snorts on a regular basis.

“Evi told me she got her Demerol from Dr. Murray and plus another doctor,” Altringer told the website. “She told me that she and Michael Jackson had the same doctors.”

Randy and Evi Quaid

Through the course of her investigation, Altringer reportedly found other pills prescribed to Evi and believes the drugs have led to the woman's erratic behavior; the latest example of which just took place on Friday.

“Evi told me she believed Michael Jackson had been murdered, along with David Carradine, Heath Ledger, Chris Penn and Natasha Richardson,” Altringer said. “She thought everyone was out to get her, and blamed everything on 'the Mob.’”

The private eye also alleges that Evi Quaid often beat on her husband, forcing him into a life of alcoholism.

If true, this would place his role in Christmas Vacation in an entirely new light.

A grand jury investigating the death of Michael Jackson will hear testimony from the girlfriend of his personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, later this week.

Nicole Alvarez, 27, has been asked by the Los Angeles Country District Attorney’s office to appear before the Jackson grand jury, the L.A. Times reports.

Authorities still want to hear testimony from Alvarez, who has allegedly refused to cooperate with detectives investigating the star’s tragic June 25 death.

Not that it has any bearing here, but it is believed that Nicole Alvarez is also the mother of the doctor's love child, Che Giovanni Murray, born this year.

Smiling Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson (1958-2009).

Prosecutors recently seated a grand jury to probe the music icon's death. The coroner’s office has ruled Jackson’s death a homicide, but what that means in terms of prosecuting one or more offenders remains up in the air.

Dr. Conrad Murray is believed to be the principal, if not sole focus of law enforcement officials' examination into what killed the greatest entertainer in history.

It is widely assumed that Murray administered the powerful anesthesia Propofol and other drugs to Jackson, then tried to cover up his actions to a degree.

Murray has denied any wrongdoing. No charges have been filed in the homicide investigation, which is believed to be nearing its end. Soon. Probably.
