Jackson Investigation Could Be Criminal Case

Police investigating the death of Michael Jackson say it could be a criminal case, depending on the results of Jackson’s toxicology report, according to CNN.

Los Angeles Police Chief William Bratton told reporters that the coroner’s report will determine whether Jackson’s death is ruled a homicide or an accidental overdose.

Meanwhile, new details have emerged about Jackson’s prescription drug use. CNN cites a confidential source alleging that Jackson received Xanax prescriptions from doctors in different states, and even had employees receive prescriptions in their name, then pass on the pills to him — all forms of prescription fraud.

The pill use details, from a 2004 document, allege that Jackson had a sleep disorder, and took up to 10 Xanax a night.

The document contains the names of five doctors — some practicing in California, with others in New York and Florida.

Chief Bratton did not say who a potential criminal investigation would target.
