When Is Heroin Not Really Heroin? When It's at Michael Jackson's House

Posted: 11:53 PM ET

by via E! Online

t1home_michael_jackson_05_giAt this point, it's not as if there's anything they could have found at Michael Jackson's house that would shock us.

Unless they found tar heroin, of course. Which they did. Or at least, they thought they did.

Unidentified members of Jackson's family informed L.A. County Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter in June that they had "located a quantity of tar heroin in a bag" at the Holmby Hills mansion the King of Pop was renting at the time of his death, according to a search warrant executed on the residence that was unsealed Thursday.

Sure enough, the list of items carted away from the house included two instances of a "brn sticky solid substance in clear plastic baggy," per warrant lingo.

And tar heroin is basically dark-colored, sticky heroin. And what better place to keep it than in plastic baggies?

But...

Sources close to the case tell TMZ.com that the substance has been tested and was, in fact, not heroin of any type, color or consistency.

Anyway, leave Michael alone until some real sources are revealed.


Mara   August 27th, 2009 11:57 pm ET

It belongs to Murray


Lori   August 27th, 2009 11:57 pm ET

The heroin theory was just some speculation on the part of the law enforcement officer that drafted the affidavit to obtain the search warrant.

Next thing they will be trying to say they found crack. It is ridiculous, the man was addicted to prescription drugs. Stuff you get from a pharmacy. And I don't blame him, I couldn't imagine living or going through what he had to go through. So since he can't say nothing to defend himself I will say something, LEAVE HIM ALONE

Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 28th, 2009 1:42 am ET

Some of the items listed are:

Latanoprost (pronounced la-TA-noe-prost) ophthalmic solution is a topical medication used for controlling the progression of glaucoma or ocular hypertension by reducing intraocular pressure. It is a prostaglandin analogue that works by increasing the outflow of aqueous fluid from the eyes (through the uvealsclearal tract).

Temazepam is a hypnotic agent. In sleep laboratory studies, temazepam significantly decreased the number of nightly awakenings. Temazepam is officially indicated for severe insomnia and other severe or disabling sleep disorders. The prescribing guidelines limit prescribing of hypnotics to two-four weeks due to concerns of tolerance and dependence. In the USA, temazepam is a Schedule IV drug.

Benoquin (Monobenzone) is used to treat the loss of skin color (vitiligo). It works by permanently removing color from normal skin located around skin with vitiligo. Do not use this medication for other skin color conditions (e.g., freckling, age spots, etc.).

Valisone is used to treat a variety of skin conditions (e.g., eczema, dermatitis, allergies, rash). Betamethasone reduces the swelling, itching, and redness that can occur in these types of conditions. This medication is a medium-strength corticosteroid.

carol kesling   August 28th, 2009 2:36 am ET

why doesnt the jackson family get up and talk to the media and stop this trash talk about michael ????????????? im sick of the media dragging him through the dirt.... especially when he is not here to DEFEND HIMSELF !!!!!!!!!!!!!! THEY NEED TO SERIOUSLY "GET A LIFE" sleezeballs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Nicole S. -- North Carolina   August 28th, 2009 2:41 am ET

Lex - I don't have any concrete plans, except praying that arrests are made soon and justice is served.


Samantha - South Africa   August 28th, 2009 2:50 am ET

Why post this junk when it was found that the stuff in the plastic bags weren't even heroin?????


Lori   August 28th, 2009 2:51 am ET

I am watching his videos and playing his music


Samantha - South Africa   August 28th, 2009 3:00 am ET

@ Lori

Have you already started celebrating Michael's birthday?I'm going to start my celebrations when the clock strikes 12 tonight............


Lori   August 28th, 2009 3:09 am ET

No. It is just barely the 28th here.


Samantha - South Africa   August 28th, 2009 3:11 am ET

Lol,I forgot about the time zone difference.Its 9:10 am in my part of the world and yours?


Nancy Endari   August 28th, 2009 3:23 am ET

Anonymous source can never be called a source and claiming as factual. I don't believe this is his and if we play back his past, he was always surrounded by bad people who are not acting on his best interest, so this heroin could have just been planted as piece of evidence against him. He was revealed as a drug addict, now as a heroin addict too????? PLease stop this madness! How could evidence like this be leaked to medias? I thought it was supposed to be concealed and treated as confidential until all the investigation complete?


Samantha - South Africa   August 28th, 2009 3:38 am ET

@ Nancy

Unfortunately we have the press and their neverending cycle of trash trying to demean Michael in the highest degree so you can't believe anything until there is solid evidence to back up these supposed claims.

About the heroin,nothing was found when the stuff in the bags went for testing.


Toni   August 28th, 2009 3:48 am ET

Now they found marijuana in his house. LOL, these people are F_ _ _ _ _ _ nuts!!!

Lora Ottawa Canada   August 28th, 2009 6:58 am ET

LAPD has it in for Michael......they might have planted all that stuff to make him look bad!

Why else would they warn the fans to stay away from his burial when they are being paid big bucks by the family to CONTROL the crowd....and the way I read the comment......sounds like it was said in a MALICIOUS tone!


Lora Ottawa Canada   August 28th, 2009 7:11 am ET

Who is Nathalie Finn and Claudia Rosenbaum? How cann CNN post such crap.....to get a rise out of his fans!

Sickening!

Latest: Michael Jackson's Cause of Death to be Announced Friday

Copyright 2009 Tim Whitby / Getty Images
ET has learned that the Los Angeles County Coroner's office will announce tomorrow morning the cause and manner of Michael Jackson's death.

A press conference is not expected, but rather a paper statement will be released. This comes on the heels of the unsealing of two more search warrants on what police found in both Michael Jackson's rented home and the abandoned car connected to his former personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray.

One of the warrants says: "During the course of the investigation, family members of the decedent notified L.A. County Coroner's Assistant Chief Winter, that they had located a quantity of tar heroin in a bad in the decedent's bedroom located on the 2nd floor. Chief Winter notified LAPD detectives of the found evidence"

However, a source tells ET it was not heroin - it was "a bag of old, rancid marijuana…left to rot."

It was found in "a little bag within an athletic or duffle bag in Michael's bedroom," the source told ET special correspondent Diane Dimond.

Also found in the house: bags of marijuana, fourteen pill bottles containing sleep and anti-anxiety medications. Also taken by police - one tube of Benoquin skin bleaching cream, one box of anti-fungal ointment and three vials of a liquid used for glaucoma patients.

The police search of the 2005 BMW connected to Dr. Murray did not yield much evidence. Police expected to find medical records for Jackson and information on prescription medicines. They did not.

The only items taken from the car were a contract in Dr. Murray's name, a business card and an envelope with miscellaneous writing on it.


Gloria   August 28th, 2009 7:16 am ET

If I wanted Tabloid News, I would go to the National Enquirer Online...
I expect more from a CNN site.... someone should get to the REAL NEWS in this story....


Lora Ottawa Canada   August 28th, 2009 7:18 am ET

Is a paper released statement be called "Official" and why are they not doing a press conference like they do for everyone else?


Stu   August 28th, 2009 7:19 am ET

Uhh!So,nobody go to gail.I thoughtd so!


Patty Anderson   August 28th, 2009 7:54 am ET

Amen Gloria.... What a bunch of crap.... What next???
Irene I love the idea. Keep me posted on that. I will definately be there.
Ladies we should meet up and form a group against the media


Samantha - South Africa   August 28th, 2009 8:13 am ET

@ Irene

That's a great idea!There should actually be a protest organized in every country come 25 June 2010 and we shall all go down in history............


sandymjfan   August 28th, 2009 8:22 am ET

@ Irene....you name the place and time....I'll be there!!!!


Brigida, Italy   August 28th, 2009 8:56 am ET

What's next?
Every night a sex-drug-rock'n'roll-party with the kids serving drinks?

Please stop it! Wasn't it enough trying to destroy him in life? Should that continue for years? STOP IT!


mariau   August 28th, 2009 9:36 am ET

WOW THIS WASN'T SURPRISED ME.. I KNOW ... BECAUSE THIS MEDIA WILL GETTING MORE TO MICHAEL.. MJ'S NAME

Alicia   August 28th, 2009 2:52 pm ET

This just confirms my disgust in the press.......notice how the headline makes you think they found heroin at MJ's house, then in the small print is says it wasn't. It's misleading and inflammatory, just like they always are. What about the people who don't read on and just go spreading the rumor that there was heroin at MJ's house???? JUST STOP IT MEDIA, LEAVE HIM ALONE AREADY!!!


Alicia   August 28th, 2009 3:02 pm ET

Patty, I am with you. How can we do it, form a group against the media? I will participate in any way I can. And Irene, yes, let's meet at the Lincoln Memorial, or Times' Squaree or whereever. I'll be there. Let's pick a place and spread the word.


Jessica   August 28th, 2009 3:17 pm ET

what about the poor little girl, now young woman who was held captive for 18 years. this poor baby gave birth to two girls while in captive, first one when she was 14 years old. phillip garrido should have his balls cut off!


sherry   August 28th, 2009 3:30 pm ET

BUT now Marajuania??????????????? OMG!~ i cant stand much more of this


Waddell   August 28th, 2009 4:50 pm ET

While focused on this abuse of prescription drugs, you ought to know my story. I have over 100 empty bottles of oxycodone (?) all written by UCLA's Drug Maintenance Dept in Santa Monica over a peirod of 2 years. My 36 year old died last year from cardiac arrest. I found him in his room nonresponsive and he died in my arms. UCLA gave him the highest potency drug without monthly monitoring of his heart and checking his blood. I asked the doctor and she admitted she did not - that he seemed "fine". I believe that is malpractice. I lost my precious 36 year old son who was done wrong by the medical profession. Legal does not make this right, as this Jackson case reveals. I went to an attorney who said point blank "UCLA never loses a case. They're 'too big'." I intend to pursue this in a public forum when I am emotionally up to this mission. P.S. We couldn't even buy these prescriptions at a Mickey Fine or any other pharmacy. We had to drive to some place in West Hollywood to a little hole in the wall pharmacy run by one man... I wish you would help me with this thru the media even though I am not a celebrity. My experience is probably happening all around us but media seem only to be interested in celebrity tragedies). Wanted to share my story even though this is extremely painful to do. I must. I should NOT have lost my son.
