Paul Walker

Body Unidentifiable

... Autopsy Delayed

EXCLUSIVE

Paul Walker's body was burned so badly the coroner needs his dental records to identify the body ... TMZ has learned.

A rep for the L.A. County Coroner tells us ... the bodies of Paul and his friend/business partner Roger Rodas are currently unidentifiable and their autopsies will be delayed until later this week.

We're told the coroner is waiting on both sets of dental records before proceeding.

Rodas -- who was driving the Porsche yesterday -- was friends with Walker for nearly a decade ... and Roger has been credited with helping Paul start his race shop.

The two also joined forces to create the "Reach Out World Wide" Foundation to help disaster relief in other countries -- and as we first reported ... the group was behind yesterday's fundraiser for typhoon relief in Santa Clarita.

Paul's rep says Roger and Paul were leaving the event when they wrecked.

Rodas was 38 years old.

very sad no doubt but you don't wrap a car around a pole like that driving the speed limit on city streets. Fast and furious was a movie, you can't really live like that. Sad stupid waste of life. and to think the drivers son saw the whole thing.

The road is not a movie set and not a racing track. Drive carefully.

I wish people would only race on a track and not on the street even if Roger was a former racecar driver. R.I.P

Isn't the Rye Canyon Loop a street with lots of malls and parking lots? Noboby was there? Good nobody else got hurt. The fact it's a loop could mean they wanted to test the car, but seriously, why do it in a neighborhood?

Maybe the NWO wanted the Philippines to go under. Maybe these two were really in a position to help save the people there. I don't see how all this devastation just randomly happened as they were driving home. Another prominent do gooder, Paul Crouch, founder of TBN, died the same day at the age of 79.

I'm no mechanic, but it seems a little strange that a car would burst into flames like that unless there had been modifications made to it. Being that Roger was a race car driver, I wonder if he made altercations to make a street legal car into a possible race car.

Unidentifiable. Partly because that ***** who sold you the video was too much of a disgusting coward to even try to help 'oooh it might blow up... get away.'

You could tell he was going to be unidentifiable from the pictures and video. I bet that crash would have killed him even without the fire.

I can't believe this actually happened. That Porsche will go with him and Rodas to heaven. Fast and Furious is over maan. R.I.P to them both. :'(
