Michael Jackson's death: Doctor's car could contain important evidence, police say

June 26, 2009 |  5:31 pm

Los Angeles Police Department Deputy Chief Charlie Beck said detectives impounded the car of Michael Jackson's personal doctor because it may contain evidence related to Jackson’s death.

The LAPD wants to interview the doctor, who attempted to revive Jackson on Thursday at his Holmby Hills home. Beck said detectives have reached the doctor but would not say when they plan to meet with him.

 Beck declined to say whether detectives found medication in the car.

“But that is the obvious evidence that could be contained in the vehicle, and I’m not commenting on whether anything like that has been found. But that is typically the reason why a physician’s vehicle at the scene of a death would be confiscated,” Beck said.
