The Los Angeles Times is reporting that Michael Jackson was killed by a lethal dose of propofol, the anesthesia at the center of his murder investigation.

The Times says this information turned up today in an unsealed affidavit from a search warrant in the Jackson case found in Houston. The LAPD investigation of Dr. Conrad Murray took law enforcement to Houston, where Dr. Murray has offices.

According to the affidavit, Murray gave Jackson the propofol shot at 10:40 a.m. after giving him a variety of other drugs for nine straight hours. The other drugs included a heavy sedatives: valium, lorazepam and midazolam.

Murray told investigators, according to the report, that he’d been treating Jackson for insomnia for six weeks — perhaps giving lie to the original story that he’d been Jackson’s doctor since 2006.

Murray told detectives that he’d been giving Jackson 50 milligrams of propofol every night, but had recently cut the dosage in half because he feared Jackson was becoming addicted to it.

Murray also implicated another doctor, David Adams of Las Vegas, in whose office, he said, Jackson had propofol injections. The detectives also investigated Dr. Arnold Klein and two other doctors. But there was no mention of several doctors with whom Jackson insiders are well acquainted.

This is just tbe beginning, folks.
