We're following new developments in the Michael Jackson death investigation. We now know how many doctors investigators have identified as writing prescriptions for the singer. We also know how many aliases Jackson apparently used to get the drugs. We'll have those stunning numbers for you. And, just how easy is to get your hands on narcotics? 360 M.D. Sanjay Gupta investigates.

    I don't care what anyone else says. Omer Bhatti is more than likely Michael's son. He looks like other family members.

    Anderson,
    Hi!
    Whatever happens with Dr. Murray, Michael Jackson's friendship and Dr./patient relationship with him is certainly a tragic one.

    I always research my doctors and interview them before i hire them so i don't know why darling MJ did not. He would be alive right now.

    Joe Jackson does not really exist in my mind!
    He is disrespectful and selfish!

    Good evening all! Joe Jackson is off the chain! Oh my goodness...LOL....he just doesn't care. At his age, I don't blame him. I'd say what's on my mind too!!

    I like what you just said regarding Joe Jackson: ...when he talks he doesn't make sense.. " that is so true... the guy seems like he's suffering from dementia.

    Michael's mother has a leg to stand on in a matter of speaking legally. Michael did misuse drugs and at the time the will was written, Michael was not in his right mind. That will be a arugement.

    Joe Jackson should be ashamed of himself!!!!

    July 29, 2009 at 10:07 pm |

    I believe that Doctor Murray should just confess and deal with the consequenses.

    isn't Glenn Beck a little more confusing than Joe Jackson???

    Good evening everyone! Boy, the dirt is coming out on Dr. Murray. As for Joe Jackson, the less I hear from him, the better.

    I had heard that Joe Jackson had a 'love child' . . . . is Omar Joe's son??

    Joe Jackson obviously has zero respect for his son's privacy! ugh!

    After all, is the boy a Michael's son or not?

    I was always under the impression that a will never has to be noterized, once it was written, it was in stone unless another is written and the other is destroyed

    hello all.

    Katherine wants to RIGHTFULLY control the decisions of the estate.

    Re the other son: nope. He aint no biological son of MJ. I'd bet my farm on it.

    Good evening Anderson and all. Sounds like an interesting program tonight. More and more info coming out on MJ and the best info is always from your program. One thing though, all the lawyers must be happy. How many lawyers do you think have been hired for the total MJ incident? By the time all the doctors in question have lawyers now and everyone else involved who feels they need a lawyer relative to money issues, business issues, custody issues, etc etc.
