DEA agents, LAPD and Las Vegas police raided the Las Vegas home of Michael Jackson's personal physician Dr. Conrad Murray Tuesday morning, according to reports.

The search comes a day after the Associated Press quoted an unidentified law enforcement official as saying that Murray, 51, gave Jackson a fatal dose of Propofol through an IV sometime after midnight on June 25 - the day he died after suffering cardiac arrest at age 50. (The autopsy report is expected to be released within days.)

Ed Chernoff, Murray's attorney, released the following statement Monday: "It's a waste of time responding to all these timed 'leaks' from 'anonymous' sources. I feel like a horse swatting flies. Everyone needs to take a breath and wait for these long delayed toxicology results. I have no doubt they want to make a case - for goodness sakes, its Michael Jackson! But things tend to shake out when all the facts are made known, and I'm sure that will happen here as well."

Murray has been identified in court papers as the subject of a manslaughter investigation, and authorities last week raided his office and a storage unit in Houston. Police, who say he is cooperating, have not labeled him a suspect.

Murray became Jackson's personal physician in May and was to accompany him to London for a series of concerts starting in July.
