His office keeps computer records of every prescription written in the state.

"There have been several runs on our computer. the difficulty of course is, to check not just for Michael Jackson's name, but for others names because celebrities and maybe ordinary people will sometimes use another name," said Brown.

Police say a powerful sedative known as Diprivan was found at Jackson's home. It capable of inducing hypnosis within 40 seconds and is meant to be used only in hospitals.

It is still unclear whether prescription drugs played a role in Jackson's death.
