Michael Jackson's health records are subpoenaed
Investigators trying to determine how Michael Jackson died are faced with the daunting task of creating an accurate medical biography for a superstar whose ailments, surgeries and doctors have been tabloid fodder for three decades.
Jackson has seen more than a dozen doctors since 1993, according to various public records and accounts, and investigators are now collecting as much medical data about him as possible.
Sources told The Times on Thursday that the Los Angeles County coroner's office has requested and subpoenaed medical files and records from a number of doctors who treated the singer.
