TMZ have speculated on reasons why the investigation into Michael’s death is taking such a long time. One law enforcement source connected with the case said; “We’ve had bad luck with big cases like OJ in the past, and we don’t want to repeat those mistakes,” adding, “There is not a problem with the case. Time is on our side. We want to do this right.” The L.A. County D.A.’s office and the LAPD are working as a unit to “anticipate defense strategies and prepare for them.” They want to ensure there are no other pharmacies that sent the Propofol used to sedate Michael to Dr. Conrad Murray and authorities have gone back to their medical experts for more input, as “strategies have changed” in a case they call “very complicated.”
As for when the investigation will be concluded, now authorities are saying they’d like to end it “before the Christmas holidays”, but that it could get pushed back to January.
