Officials investigating the death of Michael Jackson executed a search warrant on a Las Vegas pharmacy that authorities believe supplied Jackson’s personal physician Dr. Conrad Murray with the powerful anesthetic Propofol. CNN reports that documents were seized from the Allied Pharmacy on Flamingo Road in Las Vegas as investigators continue to gather more “evidence of manslaughter” against Murray. As Rock Daily previously reported, Murray’s Houston medical offices and Las Vegas home were also raided.

While the official results of the autopsy remain sealed as the investigation continues, police believe that Murray administered Propofol to Jackson within 24 hours of his death on June 25th. An overdose of the sedative could cause a patient to stop breathing, which leads to a buildup of carbon dioxide buildup in the body that could ultimately result in sudden cardiac arrest.

In other Jackson news, the Neptunes, Dallas Austin and Salaam Remi are among the producers who have been recruited to remix the King of Pop’s songs on an upcoming Universal Motown comp called Michael Jackson: The Remix Suite, MTV reports. The Suite will focus mainly on the Jackson 5 discography as well as Jackson’s early solo catalog. The 20-plus track collection, which will also feature contributions from Q-Tip, Tricky Stewart and Stargate, is due out October 27th, three days before the movie theater release of the This Is It film consisting of footage from Jackson’s rehearsals for his concerts at London’s O2 Arena.
