Michael Jackson's house contained large quantities of general anesthetic and dozens of tubes of skin-whitening cream, unsealed search warrants show. Cops found eleven containers of propofol—some enough to serve as general anesthetic for several hours—in a closet where Dr. Conrad Murray told them he had stashed them in a medical bag. A bodyguard has said Murray interrupted CPR on Jackson to throw drug vials and an IV line into such a bag.

Detectives found 19 tubes of hydroquinone and 18 tubes of Benoquin, both of which are commonly used in the treatment of a skin condition Jackson had called vitiligo. Jackson's personal assistant says that after the singer's death, Murray wanted to go back to his mansion, "so that he could pick up some cream that Mr. Jackson has so that the world wouldn't find out about it."
