Paul Walker's shocking death over Thanksgiving weekend at age 40 took the world by shock. Now, it's looking like it may be a little while before we get the autopsy results.

The Fast & Furious star and a friend both died in a car crash in Southern California on November 30. The late actor's autopsy was initially delayed so that the authorities could use dental records to identify the bodies.

Now, Us Weekly is reporting that the coroner's office won't be releasing the results of Paul's autopsy anytime soon. 

The case has "been placed on security hold," according to the coroner's office. "No information is to be released on either decedent at this time."

Officials are apparently seeking to determine whether speed was in fact a factor in the death, as it is assumed that it was. Officials "have received eyewitness statements that the car involved was traveling alone at a high rate of speed," says the sheriff's department. "No eyewitness has contacted [the department] to say there was a second vehicle."

If in fact a second vehicle was not involved, this would officially refute rumors that Paul's car might have been involved in a drag race.

TMZ has also confirmed that the autopsy has been completed. "We're still waiting to find out the exact cause of death," TMZ says, and "the findings could be announced later today."

We'll keep you posted as soon as we hear anything further, and we hope that the autopsy can help provide closure for Paul's loved ones.
