People reports that the anesthetic Diprivan, also known as Propofol, was found by police in Michael Jackson’s home and may have played a role in the singer’s death. Jackson may have been misusing the drug, generally administered intravenously for procedures like colonoscopies and plastic surgery, as a sleep aid with the help of a physician.
