Jackson Cops Call In Attorney General
Police probing Michael Jackson's death have asked California's attorney general JERRY BROWN to check out "dozens" of names of doctors and possible aliases the star used to obtain drugs.
Cops have a list of identities they want to run through Brown's office database to piece together just how many prescription medications the King of Pop had access to.
Officials at the attorney general's department monitor all over-the-counter pharmacy transactions in Los Angeles, and police hope the files will provide key evidence to nail any potential wrongdoing leading up to Jackson's death last month (Jun09).
The names passed to Brown include several doctors and a list of Jackson's aliases. Any information that emerges from Brown's checks will be passed to the police and other agencies investigating the tragedy, including the Drug Enforcement Administration.
But Brown is refusing to disclose details of his findings so far, saying: "We've found some things, but this is early on."
