Investigators search Houston office of Michael Jackson's doctor...
The investigation into Michael Jackson's death has now stretched all the way to Texas.
Federal Drug Enforcement Agents along with detectives from the Los Angeles Police Department searched Dr. Conrad Murray's north Houston clinic Wednesday afternoon.
Murray was Jackson's personal physician and was reportedly with the pop star when he died.
The search for evidence in Houston comes just a day after investigators in California pushed Dr. Murray for additional medical records and talked about interviewing him for a third time.
Responding to that request Murray's attorney released a statement which said in part:
"The coroner wants to clear up the cause of death; we share that goal.." "Based on Dr. Murray's minute-by-minute and item-by-item description of Michael Jackson's last days, he should not be a target of criminal charges."
Police and federal agents have yet to classify their work as a criminal investigation and if there are any charges in the case, they wouldn't likely come until toxicology results and a full autopsy are released.
Those reports aren't expected for at least another week.
