For months, Anthony Brown fooled his jailers into believing that he was just another prisoner inside Men's Central Jail. In fact, the 45-year-old armed robber was working for the FBI on a highly sensitive investigation of the Los Angeles County jails. He took down the names of sheriff's deputies who he alleged were dirty. He reported tales of violent abuse of inmates at the hands of jailers. He even ensnared a deputy in a phone smuggling scheme that resulted in a criminal conviction.

Los Angeles County sheriff's investigators have concluded a nearly two-month inquiry into whether county coroner's employees illegally leaked or sold private information from Michael Jackson's death investigation, a sheriff's spokesman announced Friday.

County supervisors called for the inquiry July 25 after The Times reported that the pop star's death certificate had been viewed more than 300 times, including by half a dozen coroner's employees not involved in the investigation.
