The Houston-based clinic of Michael Jackson's doctor has been raided by police, who are looking for evidence of manslaughter.
Dr Conrad Murray, who tried to revive the King of Pop when he passed away, was not present when the search took place however several items were removed from the scene.
His lawyer, Edward Chernoff said: "The search warrant authorised law enforcement to search for and seize items, including documents, they believed constituted evidence of the offence of manslaughter."
Officers from the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) entered Dr Conrad Murray's office and removed items from the scene including documents and a computer hard drive.
Police have said the doctor, who has already been interviewed twice by police, is not a suspect, but is helping enquiries.
Investigators had asked for medical records in addition to those already provided by Murray.
Chernoff added: "The coroner wants to clear up the cause of death; we share that goal".
Days after Jackson's death Chernoff denied that Dr Murray administered painkilling drugs that could have contributed to the singer's death.
He also said that Dr Murray has received much unwelcome attention from many people who angry over the singer's death.
