Both of pop superstar Michael Jackson's arms were scarred with track marks, investigators probing his death say, and the marks are consistent with the finding of the potent sedative propofol (trade name Diprivan) in his home -- a drug that is increasingly at the center of their probe into what caused Jackson's death, ABC News has learned.
Note: Track marks are needle marks seen on arm indicative of repeated use of needle into arm.
Prescription medications were found inside Jackson 's $100,000 per month rental home that included ones in his name and ones in other names, including ones that appeared to investigators to be aliases. The medications had been prescribed by multiple doctors.
Jackson was addicted to the analgesic Demerol and to Oxycontin, investigators have told ABC News, and took the drugs daily. Medical experts have reported propofol "blocks out the world."
Those addicted to it routinely report that their abuse began with using the drug to treat insomnia -- an ongoing problem for Jackson.

So, MJ was an active druggie then? Why am I not surprised? And used fake names to get more prescription drugs?
