Pop star Michael Jackson's cardiologist, the last person to see him alive, has voluntarily contacted the police and has given information that will aid the investigation into pop star's death, the Los Angeles Police Department said.

"Dr Conrad Murray, the physician who was with Michael Jackson at the time of his collapse, voluntarily contacted the Los Angeles Police Department," a statement from the police said.

Murray, licensed in Texas, Nevada and California, reportedly administered CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) to
Jackson on Thursday before the paramedics team arrived at his rented Holmby Hills home.

He had also accompanied the singer to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, where Jackson was pronounced dead.

The detectives had earlier impounded Conrad's BMW car to investigate whether it contained evidence related to
Jackson's death. However, they have not released any details about it.

The police had also met Murray briefly after Jackson's death Thursday and they conducted an "extensive interview"
with the doctor yesterday.

"Detectives assigned to Robbery-Homicide Division met with Dr Murray and conducted an extensive interview. Dr Murray was cooperative and provided information which will aid the investigation," the CNN online reported quoting a statement from the police.

Murray's lawyer has also said that the doctor is not a suspect in the case and is willing to cooperate.
