LAS VEGAS — Authorities searched the sprawling Las Vegas home and medical office of Michael Jackson’s personal doctor Tuesday, seeking documents as part of a manslaughter investigation into the singer’s death.

Los Angeles police and federal Drug Enforcement Administration agents entered Dr. Conrad Murray’s home in a gated community while others searched Murray’s medical offices.

Michael Flanagan, assistant special agent in charge of the Las Vegas DEA office, said the warrants were sealed and he couldn’t say what documents agents were seeking.

It was the second time in less than a week that investigators targeted Murray’s property. Last week in Houston authorities searched his clinic and storage. Court records show they were seeking evidence of whether the doctor committed manslaughter.

With toxicology reports pending, investigators are working under the theory that Murray gave Jackson the powerful anesthetic Propofol to help him go to sleep, and the drug caused his heart to stop, a law enforcement official told The Associated Press.

Murray told investigators he administered Propofol sometime in the early morning of June 25, the day Jackson died, according to the official.

The official told AP Murray left the bedroom where Jackson was sedated and returned to find him unresponsive.

Police have said Murray is co-operating and have not labelled him a suspect.
