Judge releases Jackson search warrants

The world knew him as Michael Jackson. But authorities in Nevada have been trying to find out whether the pop star used a variety of aliases to obtain prescription drugs. Search warrant documents ask police to look into whether Jackson may have used names like Omar Arnold, Bryan Singleton, Jack London and Roselyn Muhammad to obtain drugs.

The information is included in a batch of search warrant documents released by a Nevada court. They are similar to documents that had been disclosed in the investigation into Jackson's death.

The Associated Press and other news organizations sought the release of the paperwork. While Clark County District Court Judge Valerie Adair allowed those documents to be released, she kept other papers sealed for at least 30 more days. That is being done at the request of police who are investigating Jackson's death as a homicide.
