When paramedics arrived at Michael Jackson's house, he was already dead and it took them a while to even realize the victim was the music icon, new reports say.

Jackson was flatlined when the paramedics arrived shortly after noon PST on June 25. There was no electrical activity in Michael's heart and no sign of life.

Michael Jackson Autopsy Findings

Paramedics wanted to pronounce him dead at the scene but Dr. Conrad Murray, Jackson's personal physician, insisted the singer be transported to the hospital.

As a higher medical authority than the EMTs, Dr. Conrad Murray had the power to overrule them. So it went and EMT personnel could not "call it" at his home.

Paramedics didn't realize for nearly 10 minutes the victim was Michael Jackson. As one emergency worker put it: "It just looked like a frail, old, sickly man."

Meanwhile, law enforcement sources continuing to investigate Conrad Murray say he kept a stash of drugs - including the powerful anesthesia Propofol, which they think stopped Michael Jackson's heart - hidden in his closet.

Sources say when the LAPD first searched Jackson's home the night he died, they did not turn up Propofol or many of the other drugs that were in his house.

Dr. Murray talked to the LAPD the following Saturday and the incriminating statements he supplied triggered another, broader search warrant, police are saying.

Cops returned to the house the next Monday and found "various drugs" clandestinely stashed in a closet of the guest room where Dr. Conrad Murray stayed.

Dr. Murray himself apparently told detectives about the closet when interviewed, triggering the search and ultimately a manslaughter investigation against him.

A law enforcement source tells TMZ that "The drugs were concealed... they weren't obvious." Among the stash - Propofol, the drug they believe killed Jackson.

Dr. Conrad Murray is the target of a manslaughter investigation.

In an incredible twist just one month after Michael Jackson's death on June 25, police arrived armed with a search warrant authorizing seizure of documents at a storage locker in Houston belonging to the star's personal physician.

Law enforcement is hunting for "items constituting evidence of the offense of manslaughter that show Dr. Conrad Murray committed said criminal offense."

Bizarre findings in the investigation into Jackson's death have shed new light on the timeline of his passing and Conrad Murray's odd actions around that time.

Authorities believe Jackson died from an overdose of the powerful anesthesia Propofol, and that Murray may have administered it (he has not been charged).

Dr. Murray called 911 at 12:21 p.m. PST, and says he found Jackson in distress a half hour earlier. But Dr. Murray's employees made a trip to a Houston storage facility at 9:22 a.m. PST, raising all sorts of questions about what happened.


The storage facility manager says two women picked up 3-5 boxes and became nervous when the manager began questioning them about why they were there.

Also, authorities are keenly interested in talking to a woman named Stacey Howe who is in some way connected to Dr. Conrad Murray's medical practice.

During this week's Houston DEA raid of his office, federal agents seized two "Yahoo emails from Stacey Howie (sic)." In the raid of Dr. Murray's storage unit, the agents seized "correspondence addressed to Stacey Howe."

Howe is connected to Dr. Conrad Murray's Las Vegas medical practice.

Several items seized at Murray's Houston office where related to "Pamphlets on Sleep Center." The Sleep Center is located near Doctor's Hospital in Houston.

Dr. Murray was suspended from Doctor's Hospital - allegedly for not completing medical records in a timely fashion. All of these revelations, plus incriminating statements Murray himself made, make criminal charges likely.

All in all, it's not looking good.

Everyone knows Michael Jackson had a close bond with his three children, Prince, Paris and Blanket. But what about his supposed "secret son" Omer Bhatti?

Some say that Bhatti, 25, is Jackson's son, the product of a one-night stand in Norway a quarter-century ago. Others say he was just one of many young musical talents Jackson mentored over the years, and was very close to the singer.

Either way, Omer Bhatti sat front and center at the King of Pop's memorial service earlier this month, and is currently staying at the Jackson family home.

Sources say Bhatti was a fixture at Jackson's Neverland ranch in Santa Ynez, Calif., after the two met in Europe in the 1990s, when Bhatti was around 11.

"Everyone knew him as 'Little Michael,' and Michael referred to him as 'Little Monkey,'" remembers Ricky Harlow, a rocker in the band Harlow, which was signed to Jackson's MJJ Records in 1996 – and enjoyed an open invitation to Neverland.

Omer Bhatti's relationship to Michael Jackson has fueled great speculation.

Harlow, then 15, spent many weeks at Jackson's ranch and remembers Omer Bhatti and Jackson as being very close. Nevertheless, he says that media reports hinting that Bhatti is the pop star's mysterious son make little sense.

"They did have a father-and-son type of connection," Harlow says.

"But I never thought he was his biological father. They met when Little Michael did a contest impersonating Michael Jackson in Europe in the mid-1990s."

"Michael saw it and was blown away and got in contact with the family."

Whatever their relationship might be, Michael Jackson's family recognized the bond and has taken in Omer Bhatti as one of their own.

"They definitely embrace him," says the source. "He lived with Michael like a son. After Michael died, he came to the Jackson family home in Encino."

"He came along with Michael's kids."

Law enforcement sources say the L.A. County Coroner is scheduled to release the full autopsy results in the death of Michael Jackson next week.

The Coroner himself will release the findings mid-week, after he receives the final toxicology report from outside consultants working with the office.

The cause of death of the music icon, who passed away June 25, will "almost certainly" be called a homicide - Jackson's life was taken by another person.

Based on what has become "clear evidence," causes other than homicide - natural causes, accidental, accidental overdose, suicide - have been ruled out.

For weeks, the LAPD has viewed Jackson's death as a homicide, even as they wait until every stone has been unturned before making the official call.

They have served multiple criminal search warrants - most recently at Dr. Conrad Murray's Houston offices. Some say he may face manslaughter charges.

Dr. Conrad Murray is actively being investigated as the person who may have administered the powerful anesthesia Propofol to Jackson the day he died.

Murray was the star's personal physician at the time. Both the Coroner and LAPD have  evidence that Propofol caused Jackson's heart to stop beating.

Part of the reason the investigation is taking so long? Law enforcement is finding a tangled web of aliases doctors used to prescribe drugs for MJ.

Michael Jackson used a variety of aliases to score drugs, such as Michael Armstrong, Jack London, Peter Midani and his personal favorite, Omar Arnold.

The L.A. County Coroner's office took Jackson's medical records from another doctor, Arnold Klein, last week. Klein used the name Omar Arnold on some files.

Inside those files, Klein refers to Jackson by his real name.

In several cases where Dr. Klein treated Jackson under the name Omar Arnold, he sent the singer to the Spalding Pain Medical Clinic in Beverly Hills, Calif.

There, he performed procedures on Jackson, who was given general anesthesia. But the files at Spalding referred to Jackson by an alias other than Omar Arnold.

The fact of the matter is that it has been hard to track Jackson's treatment because of the phony names and in some cases, lack of cooperation from his doctors.

Not only does Paris Hilton share a name with Michael Jackson’s daughter, the ho-tel heiress says the King of Pop asked her mom's permission to use it.

Right. Because the Hiltons have a famed European capital trademarked.

“My mom and Michael went to high school together and they were best friends since they were 13,” the useless celebutante said in an interview with Extra.

“So I grew up knowing Michael Jackson very well and when he had his daughter, he always loved the name Paris and grew up being an uncle to me."

"So he asked my mom if it was okay and of course she said yes and I think she’s such a beautiful little girl and I’m proud we have the same name.”

Paris, Not France Star

If it's somehow true that Paris Jackson can credit this infamous Hollywood celebrity for her name, boy did that decision come back to bite Michael.

You think you're naming your daughter after the most beautiful city in the world, then some worthless socialite goes and sullies it by starring in a sex tape and serving time behind bars for DUI. Sometimes, no good deed goes unpunished.

As for the derivation of Michael's sons' names, Prince Michael Jackson and Michael Joseph Jackson, Jr., those pretty much speak for themselves.

No word on who Omer Bhatti is named for.

A seemingly absurd rumor we reported last week that Norweigan-born Omer Bhatti, 25, is Michael Jackson’s secret son just got a little bit less absurd.

Omer Bhatti claims that Jackson fathered him after a one-night stand with his mother Pia. Yeah, right, we thought, but this has been lent credence by the revelation he sat with the family at the singer’s memorial service July 7.

Here is Bhatti in the front row ...

LOVE CHILD: Is this the secret son of Michael Jackson next to the late King of Pop's son Prince and his sister Rebbie Jackson at the memorial service? It sure looks like it.

Of course, this does not prove his relationship to Jackson. But when asked about his son’s appearance at the Staples Center event, Pia's husband Riz said:

“Yeah, yeah, I know all of this because I was watching. I told my wife. Just wait until the press see this. It’s not going to be a small thing.”

Presumably Riz is cool with the fact that MJ is Omer's dad.

Omer is believed to be in L.A. waiting to take a DNA test to prove whether or not he is Jackson’s son, and is spending time at the Jackson’s family home.

Related or not, Jackson did know him in some capacity since the '90s when he lived on and off at Neverland (weird in itself) and even toured with the singer.

Some say that Jackson claimed Omer Bhatti was his son, others say he just referred to him as that (as in a term of endearment) but it's not technically true.

Sources within the Jackson family inner circle are reportedly saying that if Katherine Jackson, Michael Jackson's mom, gets custody of his kids as per the late singer's will, Michael's big sister Rebbie Jackson will raise the children.

Maureen Reillette "Rebbie" Brown (née Jackson) is 59. She is the eldest of the nine children (Michael was the seventh) of Katherine and Joe Jackson.

She lives in Las Vegas with her husband of 40 (!) years.

Rebbie has always kept a low public profile - she has even been called the "forgotten" member of Jackson family - but privately she has been deeply involved in the lives of Michael's children, Paris, Prince Michael and Blanket.

Rebbie Jackson is currently living with Katherine at the family's Encino home and caring for the kids day-to-day. All three children are said to adore their aunt.

While the Jackson family is deeply divided on issues involving Michael's estate, there is supposedly no argument when it comes to Rebbie caring for the kids.

Whether she eventually becomes the custodial parent in name or not, she will be entrusted with the primary responsibility of raising Michael's three children.

Rebbie Jackson has three grown children, Stacee, 37, Yashi, 31, and Austin, 24. It sounds as if she might be a good person to care for Michael's kids too.

Michael Jackson's nutritionist, Cherilyn Lee, has been subpoenaed as the police and DEA try to hunt down the singer's medical records, the AP reports.

Los Angeles County Coroner's officials paid a visit to Cherilyn Lee's Inglewood, Calif., office on Wednesday, her spokeswoman, Belinda Foster, confirms.

The news comes hours after the Drug Enforcement Administration and homicide detectives raided the office of Jackson's personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray.

Authorities entered Murray's Houston office thanks to a search warrant that states the doctor is under suspicion and may be looking at manslaughter charges.

Her spokeswoman says she's cooperating fully with investigators, and a subpoena was only necessary because the records are protected by law.

Cherilyn Lee treated Jackson between January and April.

She has alleged the singer asked for Diprivan, the brand name for Propofol, a powerful anesthetic administered via IV, for help sleeping. The drug is central to the investigation of Jackson's death by cardiac arrest on June 25.

Jackson's longtime dermatologist, Dr. Arnold Klein (the biological father of the singer's eldest children, Prince, 12, and Paris, 11, depending on what you read), was served a subpoena by an L.A. County Coroner official on July 14.

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."

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.

Smiling Michael Jackson

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.

Michael Jackson (1958-2009).

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.
