Because of the severe damage to his body, Paul Walker’s autopsy was delayed after his fatal car crash on Nov. 30. Now, a date has been set by the L.A. County coroner’s office.
Paul Walker’s Autopsy Scheduled
The autopsies on Paul, 40, and Roger, 38, are scheduled for Dec. 3, Lt. Fred Corral of the Los Angeles County coroner’s office told CNN.com.
However, they are not 100 percent sure they will be able to take place because of the severe damage from the crash. “We are working on the identification issues concurrently,” the coroners office told E! News on Dec. 2, when they got put on hold. “Both of the autopsies on the victims of that accident are on hold. We are probably holding off pending identification confirmation. The bodies have not been identified. The bodies have not yet been examined.”
Lt. Fred Corrall also told CNN that they are waiting for dental X-rays for both Paul and Roger to make the official identifications.
Paul Walker’s Death: Authorities Focus On Speed
While there were multiple rumors that Paul and Roger were involved in a drag race, but it has now been ruled out by police. They found no evidence of any other car involved.
“I want people to know that Paul and Roger were not drag racing. They were not doing donuts. Some people said they were drifting, which they weren’t. They were not racing other cars,” Jim Torp, an eyewitness who was at the charity the day of the accident, told HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “They were only driving for like five to six minutes when the car crashed, they didn’t have enough time to be racing. Plus there were two highway patrol officers on site because there were so many high performance cars at the event.”
The L.A. County Police are now focusing on finding out whether or not speed was involved. We will continue to update you as we find out more details.
