Police searching Michael Jackson's home after the star's death found skin-whitening creams.

Newly unsealed search warrants detail an array of skin-whitening creams and medical items found in Michael Jackson's home after the singer's death.

The documents were unsealed following a legal motion by The Associated Press.

They show detectives found four bottles of anesthetic and dozens of tubes of skin-whitening cream in a cupboard in Jackson's room.

Jackson was believed to have had skin condition vitiligo, that creates patches of de-pigmented skin.

Detectives found 19 tubes of hydroquinone and 18 tubes of Benoquin among the drugs and medical items in the singer's room.

Jackson died in June.
