Dr. Murray was in the house at the time of Michael’s cardiac arrest. From TMZ:
Sources say the doctor is not cooperating with authorities, but they have still found evidence linking him to the drug that may have killed Jackson.
There is evidence Propofol was administered to Jackson shortly before his heart stopped beating.
And we’re told there is evidence Dr. Murray may have administered the drug.
Dr. Murray delayed calling 911 because, he said, he did not know Jackson’s house address.
Other doctors are still of interest. TMZ reports that Jackson employees have complained that Dr. Arnold Klein, Jackson’s dermatologist, was using the name of Jackson employees to prescribe drugs that would find their way to Michael.
