*TMZ is reporting that a dead body has been discovered in a sweep of the grounds outside an L.A. County courthouse, where Dr. Conrad Murray is scheduled to appear this morning for his arraignment in the death of Michael Jackson.

Several officers were doing their daily sweep of the premises to wake up the homeless and escort them away before court opens when they came across a homeless person who at first appeared to be sleeping — but turned out to be deceased.

A coroner has already been called to the scene.
