Police have seized cellphones and a computer hard drive from the Las Vegas home and office of Michael Jackson’s personal physician.

This comes as the probe into the pop star’s sudden death focuses increasingly on the doctor who was at his side when he died.

Chernoff said in a statement that Murray was present during the four-hour search of his house “and assisted officers. Investigators left Dr. Murray’s home ... seizing cellphones and a computer hard drive”.

Los Angeles coroners have said they expect to issue a report into the cause of Jackson’s death as early as this week, following toxicology reports.

Celebrity website TMZ has reported that Murray told Los Angeles police that he had administered propofol to Jackson only hours before he died, but that could not be confirmed officially.

The drug, which is sold under the trade name of Diprivan and used as an anesthetic for surgery, is only supposed to be used under doctor supervision.
