Paul Walker’s Autopsy Details
Paul’s body was laying in the “pugilistic stance” in the passenger seat, next to Roger Rodas.
According to the medial dictionary, the stance is “a ‘defensive’ position typically seen in severely burned bodies, characterized by flexion of elbows, knees, hip, and neck, and clenching of hand into a fist; it is caused by high-temperatures in fire, resulting in muscle stiffening and shortening; it occurs even if the person was dead before the fire.”
Paul also had multiple fractures — various ribs, pelvic, collarbone, jaw, and his left upper arm.
“What thermal injuries basically means is that the bodies were SEVERELY burned. When we say traumatic injuries, these injuries are consistent with injuries that typically occur in traffic accidents,” Captain Kades with the LA County Coroner’s Department told HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “They were SEVERELY burned.”
The injuries Roger suffered to his head left his skull fractured and his brain exposed.
The report added that there was no alcohol or drugs in their systems and that after the car — a Porsche Carrera GT, hit the two trees, spun 180 degrees and almost tore in half. How scary!
