Paul Walker: Cause of Death is Known — Autopsy is Completed: Report

Wednesday, December 4, 2013

Flags Of Our Fathers US Premiere - ArrivalsPAUL Walker‘s cause of death hasn’t yet been revealed.. but we now his autopsy has been completed.

According to TMZ, the coroner’s officer has completed an autopsy on the bodies of Walker and his friend Roger Rodas, who drove the car that killed them.

The coroner also made a positive ID on both bodies — which was delayed because dental records were needed.

The Fast & Furious actor — who was tragically killed in a car accident on Saturday, Nov. 30 – previously confessed he has “mellowed out” as he’s gotten older, and no longer felt the need to speed.

“I’ve definitely suffered from road rage but it’s been a little while,” he said back in 2009.

“I think I’ve mellowed out as I’ve gotten older.

“I only ever had one accident and that was when I’d only had my driver’s license for a few months. So it’s been a while and hopefully no more.”

Recent reports claimed Paul and his friend Roger Rodas were driving at around 100 MPH when their Porsche Carerra GT wrapped around a pole in Santa Clarita, north of Los Angeles on Saturday night.

The posted speed limit near Rye Canyon Loop and Kelly Johnson Parkway is 45 mph.

“Though the investigation is in its early stages, investigators from the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department believe the Porsche was going over 100 mph,” a source close to the investigation said.

Walker and Rodas both died on impact, the case insider suggested.

“Both men wore seat belts… (but) if the Porsche wouldn’t have hit the pole, Paul and Roger would likely still be alive today,” said the source.

Cops believe there was significant speed because the Porsche was split in half after hitting the pole. It was also hit with such great force that it knocked over.

Meanwhile, the coroner is still waiting for dental records to properly identify the men’s bodies.

“Their bodies were burned beyond recognition,” Los Angeles County Coroner Assistant Chief Ed Winter told RadarOnline. “The autopsies are on hold at this time and could be performed on Tuesday.”

    this is tragic, but really? 185 mph, slamming into a pole, than a tree, bursting into flame, and they don’t know the cause of death? I’m willing to bet it was from slamming into a tree at 185, and bursting into flames.

    Where did you read that they were going 185mph? I know, no where, you made it up, like the rest of the bullshit on this website. The autopsy report may no be released until the toxicology report is back, it may take 6 to 8 weeks. autopsies are done to determine the injuries a person sustained before they died and what caused their death. certain injuries occur at certain speeds whether they be low or high. that’s why they do autopsies they don’t just look at the car and guess that’s what happened like you just did. ignorant dumbass..
