Sheriff’s Department officials said on November 18 that two additional locations had been searched but at the time did not say where those locations were.
Jackson was arrested and booked on suspicion of child molestation last week and was released after posting a $3 million bond.
Formal charges will not be filed before mid-December, a source close to the investigation told CNN. Jackson is scheduled to be arraigned January 9 in Santa Barbara Superior Court. A single count of child molestation can carry a prison sentence of up to eight years. (Full story)
Jackson has denied the charges and on Monday the singer launched a Web site dedicated to countering what he called “a big lie” — the child molestation allegation.
The alleged victim in the Jackson case participated in a documentary about the pop star, a source close to the child’s family told CNN.
Investigators also have begun checking almost 70 calls from people claiming to have information about the investigation.
“Those calls need to be screened and we haven’t been able to substantiate all of them as actual tips,” a law enforcement source told CNN. “Hopefully, they will be screened, check out thoroughly, and we will take it from there. Of course you have to figure some may be nuts.”
