Police looking into the death of pop star Michael Jackson have confirmed the investigation could lead to criminal charges. Los Angeles Police Chief William Bratton said they are awaiting the coroner’s report but said the investigation could point towards homicide or overdose.
According to reports in the, the Jackson family know these charges could come. “The family is aware of a potential criminal prosecution,” a family source reportedly told CNN. In a new interview, Bratton also revealed a ‘number of items’ taken from the King of Pop’s home are assisting in their work. The LAPD chief told CNN that detectives have spoken to a number of doctors who treated Jacko over the years and are looking into the singer’s prescription drug history. “We are still awaiting corroboration from the coroner’s office as to cause of death. That is going to be very dependent on the toxicology reports that are due to come back,” he said. “And based on those, we will have an idea of what it is we are dealing with: are we dealing with a homicide or are we dealing with accidental overdose? “At the time of the death with search warrants, we were able to seize a number of items from the residence where the death occurred and those will assist in the investigation.” He did not elaborate on what police found.
