Las Vegas Doctors Linked to Jackson Death Investigation

Two more Las Vegas doctors have been attached to the Michael Jackson death investigation and Eyewitness News is uncovering more about both of those doctors.

Search warrants outlined the list of four powerful sedation drugs in Jackson's system at the time of his death. Las Vegas cardiologist Dr. Conrad Murray told police he injected the drugs to help Jackson sleep.

The affidavits attached to the search warrants also revealed two names of other Las Vegas  who were implicated by Murray in his police interview with Los Angeles detectives. One doctor is an anesthesiologist and the other is a dentist.

In the police interview with his lawyer, Murray told detectives he watched Dr. David Adams give Michael Jackson the dangerous drug propofol. He told police the event took place sometime between March and April at a cosmetologist's office in the Las Vegas area.


Bicyclists and Hikers May Pay at Red Rock

Bicyclists and hikers on foot would no longer get in free at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area under a proposed federal Bureau of Land Management fee increase.

A BLM spokeswoman says the new fees could go into effect in March at the area west of Las Vegas. Bicyclists and hikers would pay $3, and fees for vehicles entering the 13-mile scenic drive would rise from $5 to $7 per car and $2 to $3 per motorcycle.

No Answers for Family of Murdered Teen

A Palo Verde teen was shot to death in broad daylight two years ago. Police have yet to find the gunman and now the family is pleading for anyone with information to come forward.

Eighteen-year-old Cory Iascone's family and friends gathered Wednesday afternoon for a vigil to remember his life. He was found shot to death in his car in a quiet neighborhood on Desert Shores. Family and friends say they will never forget him.

"He was peacemaker. Everybody loved him," said Cory's mother Laurie Barry.

"He was my best friend. He was my whole world," said Cory's sister Ashley Iascone.

Cory's mother and sister say the pain never goes away, all the while knowing his killer is still out there. His family gathers at the spot where he was murdered. They pray for closure and for justice. "My son was a good kid. He didn't have violent bone in his body," said Barry.

It was a Sunday afternoon when Cory left home to drop off a friend.

Neighbors Return After Chemicals Removed From House

Police cleared residents to return to a northwest Las Vegas neighborhood that was partially evacuated Thursday night while local and federal authorities removed chemicals found in a house.

Residents living at  the 7600 block Adornment Court were evacuated after police and federal agents found possible bomb making materials at a nearby home. The home is located in the Northwest part of the valley near Buffalo and Farm.

Police discovered the suspicious materials when they went to the home to conduct a welfare check.

Neighbors were asked to leave overnight while authorities removed the chemicals, which officials have not identified. FBI Agent David Staretz describes them as commercially available chemicals, and says they were destroyed in the desert.

Another Las Vegas Car Dealership Closes

It's yet another sign of the sagging Las Vegas economy, but this time there is a mostly happy ending to the story.

A car dealership in the far northwest valley is closing its doors, but most of the employees will keep their jobs.

Centennial Hyundai opened about eight months ago. Wednesday the dealership announced it is suspending operations and moving nearly all of the 60 employees to other Hyundai dealerships in the valley.

"This store is not actually a closing per se, this store will be in abeyance. Otherwise, the franchise agreement continues. It is not a termination of the franchise agreement," said Centennial Hyundai spokesman Tom Letizia.

The company says there is simply not enough business in the northwest to justify keeping the dealership open. In a statement, the owner says he does plan to reopen this dealership possibly within two years when economic conditions improve.
