Jacko police request warrants stay sealed until January

By | Published on Thursday 19 November 2009

More from the Jackson file, and an LA police detective has asked a Nevada judge to keep warrant documents relating to the investigation into the late king of pop’s death sealed until at least 18 Jan.

These are the documents relating to the search of a pharmacy in Las Vegas used by Conrad Murray, Jackson’s personal doctor who, of course, is under investigation in relation to claims he caused the singer’s death by negligently administering the powerful sedative propofol. It’s thought Murray may have got the drug from the searched pharmacy. US media have been calling on judges to let them see the court documents relating to the search.

But LAPD detective Orlando Martinez urged Judge Valerie Adair to keep the files closed until the New Year in a phone call yesterday. The call was made during a public hearing, though the judge then proceeded to close the session to the public. She has now said she wants to consult with the LA County District Attorney’s office before making a ruling.
