Michael Jackson's personal physician was present when DEA agents, LAPD and Las Vegas-area police searched his Las Vegas home on Tuesday morning, Usmagazine.com has confirmed.

The attorney for Dr. Conrad Murray -- who has been identified in court papers as the subject of a manslaughter investigation -- released a statement Tuesday that reviewed what took place during the search.

"We can verify that at approximately 8 a.m., officers from DEA, LAPD and various local agencies began executing a search warrant at Dr. Conrad Murray's Las Vegas home and office. The search warrant authorized investigators to look for medical records relating to Michael Jackson and all of his reported aliases. Dr. Murray was present during the search of his home and assisted the officers. Investigators left Dr. Murray's home around noon, seizing cell phones and a computer hard drive. As of 2 p.m., the search at Dr. Murray's office continues."

According to the LAPD, the U.S. Department of Justice was also a part of the search.

The search came 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.)

This isn't the first place of Murray's that authorities have searched. Last week, they raided his office and a storage unit in Houston. Police, who say he is cooperating, have not labeled him a suspect.
