Two of Michael Jackson’s former doctors are holding some of their files on the King of Pop.
TMZ.com reports that neither Dr. Arnold Klein nor Dr. Conrad Murray have handed all the medical records that the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office requested from them. Each of them has turned in a portion of what they were asked for, though.
Reportedly, Michael would frequently go to Arnold’s office throughout the week, sometimes staying as long as four hours. The entertainer’s driver told officials that Michael would often leave those sessions appearing disoriented.
The result of the coroner’s findings could determine whether detectives proceed with this case as a homicide or an accidental overdose, CNN.com reports.
"We are still awaiting corroboration from the coroner’s office as to cause of death. That is going to be very dependent on the toxicology reports that are due to come back," Los Angeles Police Chief William Bratton told CNN. “Based on those, we will have an idea of what it is we are dealing [with].”
Authorities are speaking with different doctors who have treated Michael, trying to uncover his history with prescription drugs. Those that aren’t cooperating are being subpoenaed for their records.
The Drug Enforcement Administration and the California Attorney General’s office are also assisting in the investigation.
"At the time of the death with search warrants, we were able to seize a number of items from the residence where the death occurred and those will assist in the investigation," Wiliiam said.
Investigators wouldn’t comment on what they found in Michael’s home, but a source told CNN that a police search turned up many bottles of prescription drugs.
