The home of Michael Jackson's doctor, Conrad Murray, has been searched by police.
Dr Murray, who was with Jackson and tried to revive him before he died, is helping police with their investigation for manslaughter over the King of Pop's death.
Officers seized mobile phones and a computer hard drive from his Las Vegas home in the exclusive Red Rock Country Club.
Police said that Dr Murray was co-operative throughout the process and they have not labelled him a suspect.
His lawyer Ed Chernoff said: "Dr. Murray was present during the search of his home and assisted the officers. Investigators left his home after seizing cell phones and a computer hard drive.
"The search warrant authorised investigators to look for medical records relating to Michael Jackson and all of his reported aliases."
Police had earlier searched Dr Murray's office, searching for "property or items constituting evidence of manslaughter" and conducted interviews with all medical staff working with Jackson.
Reports suggest the investigation around Jackson's death is focusing on his use of powerful painkilling drugs.
According to reports, investigators are working under the theory that the drug Propofol (brand name Diprivan) caused Jackson's heart to stop, after bottles of the drug were found in the singer's home.
Propofol can depress breathing, lower heart rates and blood pressure.
A full toxicology report for Jackson's death is due later in the week.
