Our detectives had a brief conversation with Dr. Murray, where or the contents of that conversation took place, I can't tell you, Rayner said.
Rayner also said that media reports that Dr. Murray was missing are erroneous. according to the report.
Detectives will be talking with him again at some point. I don't know when that will be. Dr. Murray's vehicle was towed from Michael Jackson's home last night as part of the investigation, she added.

Members of Jackson's entourage told hospital staff that he had taken the drug Demerol, a commercial name for pethidine.
The Sun newspaper quoted a source as saying: Shortly after taking the Demerol he started to experience slow shallow breathing. His breathing gradually got slower and slower until it stopped.
