Mystery around Michael Jackson's death

As the fans worldwide mourned the death of the Peter Pan of pop , an autopsy was underway to determine the cause of his death . The LA County assistant chief coroner Lt Ed winter told reporters that the toxicology reports could take six - eight weeks . A BMW was towed from the house on thursday night belonging to jackson's personal physician - who was reported to be missing .

"We have not been able to interview the doctor yet . His car was impounded because it may contain medications or other evidence that may assist the coroner in determining the cause of death " said Karen Rayner - spokeswoman for the police department.

Intriguingly family members said Jackson received a massive dose of Demerol shortly before he went into cardiac arrest.Demerol (meperidine) is a narcotic pain medicine used to treat moderate to severe pain. Doctors prescribe Demerol because it is deemed safer than morphine and its side effects aren't considered as bad.

A doctor needs to be certified to prescribe this drug . The Los Angeles Times reports that Jackson's physician and also hi s spokesperson- Dr Tohme R Tohme does not currently have a medical license. Tohme's website states that he is "ambassador at large, Senegal", though a spokesperson at Senegal's US embassy said he had never heard of him.
