Washington (ANI): Although Michael Jackson"s death has officially been ruled a homicide, investigators are still months away from filing any criminal charges in the case because they are still wading through evidence, say reports. According to the Los Angeles Times newspaper, a decision on whether or not criminal charges will be filed is "months rather than weeks away", reports Contactmusic.
A source has told the publication that outside medical experts have been recruited to help with the investigation. The only person at the centre of the investigation into Jackson"s death is his personal physician Dr. Conrad Murray, who provided the pop star with the anaesthetic propofol, which caused the King of Pop's death in June (09).
However, Murray has said that he gave appropriate medical aid when he found Jackson in distress and not breathing, insisting he did nothing wrong. The LA county coroner"s office determined that Jackson died from "acute propofol intoxication" combined with sedatives, and classified the death as a homicide.
