    Another Jackson-Related Search Targets Doctor

    This is one office visit for which the doctor may be charged. Make that, doctors.

    Capping off weeks of investigations into Michael Jackson's death, an investigator from the Los Angeles County Coroner's office resurfaced at the Beverly Hills practice of longtime dermatologist (and sperm bequeather) Dr. Arnold Klein today with search warrant in hand.

    The specifics of the warrant have yet to be made public. But it appears that, under the watchful gaze of Klein's attorney, Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winters collected more medical files relating to Jackson's treatment history.

    When investigators first visited Klein's office in July, his lawyer issued a statement claiming Klein "was not a subject of the investigation into the death of his treasured friend and patient, Michael Jackson."

    The latest move comes as police continue to probe YouTube-friendly Dr. Conrad Murray for possible manslaughter charges.

    LAPD officials would not comment on a Fox News report that Murray was facing imminent arrest—not even to debunk it. A spokeswoman for Murray brushed it off as nothing more than gossip fodder.

    "It's just another one of those rumors," she told E! News.

    Meanwhile, she also took time out to dismiss other false reports circulating online and defend Murray's decision to post his video thank-you to supporters earlier this week.

    "It's the only forum he had. He couldn't thank all the people individually. Twenty or 30 people call me each day, and people call with concerns. They're hearing all these awful rumors on the Internet that Dr. Murray is depressed, suicidal. He wanted to set the record straight."

    And why didn't he push harder in the minute-long video to prove his innocence?

    "It wasn't the forum for him to display his defense," she said. "It was to thank his supporters."
