Coroner on MJ: 'No Indication of Foul Play'

6/26/2009 7:27 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The L.A. County Coroner just announced Michael Jackson's autopsy has been completed -- but more testing is needed before the official cause of death can be determined.

The coroner said the cause of death was deferred because additional testing -- including toxicology and other tests -- is needed. It will take 4-6 weeks to complete.

There was no trauma to Michael's body and "no indication of foul play" -- but he said Michael had been taking "some prescription medications."

He said Michael was pronounced dead in the emergency room of UCLA. Jackson's body will be released after 6 PM.

TMZ, YOU ARE EVIL. WHEN YOU WERE DISRESPECTING MICHAEL DURING HIS LIFE, I DEFENDED HIM AND YOU DIDN'T HAVE THE DECENCY TO POST IT. NOW HE'S DECEASED AND I HOPE YOU HAVE ENOUGH RESPECT AND TACT (THIS TIME AROUND) TO KEEP IT PROFESSIONAL. YOU DEFECATED ON HIM IN LIFE, PLEASE DON'T DEFECATE ON HIM IN DEATH. HAVE SOME RESPECT.

You said "Yep, he died from mixing RX drugs". How the hell do you know this? The coroner has not even released toxicology reports, yet you act as if you have the facts. Where you there? Did you watch him do this? You are the type of oblivious person who doesn't know crap yet thinks they know it all. Please keep your "I know everything" comments to yourself, as this only creates rumors that can take months to clarify. Would you like it if I said "#10 on here has a learning disability"? Stop assuming, especially when it comes to healthcare, science and pharmacology.

What kind of person that has not only cpr/first aid training but a medical degree, not know that cpr is more effective when on a solid surface... yeah they have people on gurneys but im sure Michael Jacksons bed is a lot more fluffy than a gurney. If you listened to the 911 call then you know what I'm talking about.

MJ may have been good at one point but he got a lot to wacky for me. I could care less he's dead. He's better off and so are a lot of others. He should have committed suicide long ago. He's not being put on a pedestal by me.

Oh where oh where can the good dr. be .....umm may-be Mexico or South America or just lawyering up. He has the answers as to what happened yesterday and if it was all ok then why is he hiding? Talk to the police if you have nothing to hide. Something is very wrong here.

I'm Brazilian and I liked much of Michael Jackson, although I haven't had the opportunity to see him here in Brazil when he came because I was still a child.
I am sorry for his death. My condolences to his family at heart!

Another tragedy of many for MJ.
His doctor should be charged with aiding his death,
why he isn't being held for negligent homicide
is a question that I would like to know?!

I really do not get the shock....hello, has anyone looked at the guy lately??? He looks horrible!! The doctor who was with him was a cardiologist...that would be a heart doctor! One would wonder why he had a heart doctor on staff....generally people do not see them unless there is need to do so. The guy was 50 and it has been known for a long time he is always having some kind of medical issue and taking some kind of drug.....so is it really that shocking that he had a heart attack? Even if the doctor was living at his residence, you can't hold them 100% accountable for choices the patient makes. Doctors can't stop people from mixing alcohol with their drugs. I am not at all surprised and really am shocked he lived this long.....when you look at the changes to his body over the years and how he has looked this past month, does this really come as that big of a shock?

baffled    

I am completely stunned at how ignorant some people are. I can't believe that commentor #150 (aka bingo) actually wrote that MJ should have committed suicide along time ago. Haven't people ever heard that if you have nothing nice to say then say nothing at all.

No matter what kind of problems he had, he was a great performer, the best. RIP Michael Jackson.
