Jackson, 50, christened 'Wacko Jacko' for his bizarre lifestyle, sex scandals and numerous plastic surgeries, died
on Thursday night after collapsing at his Bel Air mansion in Los Angeles.

"We've learned law enforcement is looking for a doctor who lived at Michael Jackson's home, and the doctor is
nowhere to be found," gossip website TMZ reported.

"Law enforcement sources tell us a BMW belonging to the doctor was towed from Jackson's home last night," it said,
adding that the cops are looking to interview the doctor.

The website, quoting a law enforcement source, said "the doctor gave Jackson an injection before he died".

Jackson reportedly may have OD'd on Demerol. "As we first reported, family members were concerned that Jackson was taking too much morphine," it said.

Brian Oxman, attorney and spokesman of the late singer, told 'CNN' that there were "enablers" in the star's entourage, who pressurised the singer to perform and pushed him towards prescription drugs.

"I believe (his manager) Frank DiLeo was with him at the time (of his heart attack), that is what I have been told.
This family has been trying for months and months and months to take care of Michael Jackson," said Oxman.

While the autopsy report of Michael Jackson is still awaited, people close to him have claimed that his dependency on prescription drugs, encouraged by "enablers", led to his sudden death.
