's autopsy is complete ... but cause of death is still unknown, TMZ has learned.

A spokesperson for the L.A. County Coroner's Office tells TMZ, the autopsy was finished Saturday -- but the cause of Lisa's death won't be known until the toxicology results are in ... which could take weeks.

As TMZ previously reported ... The "That 70's Show" actress died in her sleep Wednesday night while staying at a treatment center for alcohol abuse. A few days prior she had been admitted to the hospital by her boyfriend with a BAC of .34 (borderline fatal).

She went home. She gave up the spirit.

How come the Canadians got Cory Monteith's tox results the day after his autopsy, and it takes weeks in the U.S.?

It really isn't much a mystery. That level of intoxication and unsupervised withdrawal can kill you. The toxicology report is merely a formality. RIP.

She died just like Winehouse did. There's no mystery in the death of any an end stage alcoholic.

Just another stupid alcoholic that bites the dust. It's her own fault. All alcoholics and druggies are hard core losers anyway.

She probably should have been detoxed in the hospital on a heart monitor with nurses around to respond.

My guess she died from withdrawal.

BACs are relative. 0.34 may have been familiar to Kelly's body.
I have personal ER experience with patients coming in with **0.4's***, YES, I said ** 0.4s ** WHILE experiencing delerium tremens.
Why I comment is...: if she got admitted to an hospital with that level, she may have been having withdrawal and needed ER care. No matter what, if she were going to a rehab facility only 4-ish days later, she should have been on medications to mediate the withdrawal. Seizures and other adverse events can occur day, weeks, even months after cessation of alcohol. That is why many rehab patients are routinely prescribed Neurontin after detox and after discharge.
