Marijuana found in Jackson's bedroom

August 27, 2009 12:00:00 AM PDT
A search warrant served at Michael Jackson's house the day after he died says family members told investigators they'd found heroin in the singer's room. But tests later showed the substance wasn't heroin it was degraded marijuana.Michael Jackson used multiple medications as he struggled with insomnia. In new court documents released Thursday, detectives list other substances found in their search after Jackson's death.

Two bags of marijuana were on the list. The document states that Jackson's family later located a bag in the singer's bedroom, which they said was tar heroin. It was seized and a lab analysis later determined it was degraded marijuana.

The warrant also stated that family members were concerned about the unknown medications and narcotics at the location, and wanted them confiscated for the safety of Jackson's minor children.

A second warrant revealed early actions of Dr. Conrad Murray that raised suspicions. At UCLA Medical Center, where Jackson was transported, Murray gave detectives a short summary of what happened. The warrant says that Murray left the hospital against the objections of the investigating officers.

The two affidavits reflect what detectives were looking for in the first hours of the investigation. Since then there have been at least two other searches. In a court hearing Thursday, a judge ruled those affidavits would be kept sealed to maintain the integrity of the investigation.

Eyewitness News has been told by a law enforcement source that the coroner may release the autopsy results Friday morning.

So far documents have been subpoenaed from seven doctors and one nurse practitioner. It is still unknown what role they may have played in providing Jackson drugs under aliases. The law enforcement source says they have to talk to many experts.
