Paul Walker’s Autopsy Delayed, Body Too Badly Burned — Report
Paul Walker's death over the weekend is truly tragic, and now authorities say that his autopsy report will be delayed.
Paul was in the passenger seat of friend and financial advisor Roger Rodas's car when the car slammed into a light pole and burst into flames on November 30. Roger, who was driving, and Paul were both killed. Reports say that speed was a factor in the crash.
However, it will take longer than usual to complete an autopsy report because the bodies are unidentifiable due to severe burns, according to CNN. The families will provide dental records to assist in the identification.
Paul and Roger had been in attendance at a holiday toy drive for Paul's natural-disaster aid charity, Reach Out Worldwide. The event was hosted at Roger's automotive shop that afternoon. The two left for a ride in Roger's Porsche, and the crash occurred at 3:30 p.m., not far from the charity event.
Paul leaves behind a 15-year-old daughter, Meadow. He had been in the midst of filming Fast & Furious 7, which had been slated to be released in July 2014. Paul was to film more scenes for the film in early 2014, so it is unknown what will need to be rewritten. Sources say the film may be delayed but that it will definitely be released eventually.
Our thoughts are with Paul's daughter and loved ones during this difficult time.
