Paul Walker

Body Unidentifiable

... Autopsy Delayed

12/1/2013 9:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
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.

Let the speculating begin. How many unfounded death stories can TMZ milk out of this today

Horrifying way to end last night -

Lost a kid brother, 2 of his close pals the same way -

Heart goes completely out to the families, friends, fans.

Here they were hosting a charity event - raising money for Typhoon victims.

...Giving back.

Lit a candle for them - sad way to start December.

Was this part of the reporting of Paul and Roger's passing necessary TMZ? Obviously people realize that with the extent of the fire they would be burned pretty badly. Please show compassion for them and their loved ones...this was not a necessary fact to report on...

Most of us saw post-crash coverage/footage, TMZ, don't need the autopsy particulars.

-Too soon.

Let this tragedy bring an end to the fast and furious franchise. The public roads are not race tracks and holding a drivers license does not make you a race car driver.

Autopsy? I can do it right now. Cause of death was a high speed car crash and resulting fire. Seems like a waste of taxpayers money to do an autopsy in this situation.

After seeing the flames - I knew that was going to be the case.. It's still very sad to read it though. :-(
-
With that said, I think his death is more tragic, because his friend was clearly speeding and driving dangerously.. This death was avoidable.. People need to stop treating cars like they're toys.. Most cars weight between 3,000-4,000 lbs -- and they're made of steel.. They're more deadly than a gun.. People need to stop acting so carelessly whist driving..
-
Car accidents are in the top 3 most common causes of death.. They're serious.. And people need to be more mindful when driving..
-
Regardless, I feel awful for his friend - he had young children.. and Paul had a 15 year old daughter.. Now at least 3 children are fatherless.. that's utterly devastating..

...And I bet you got no idea you're going way too fast
You're trying not to think about what went wrong
Trying not to stop 'til you get where you going...
-
The highway won't hold you tonight..
The highway don't know you're alive..
The highway don't care if you're all alone...
But I do, I do...
--
The highway won't dry your tears..
The highway don't need you here...
The highway don't care if you're coming home...
But I do, I do.

This is so awful :( I feel so bad for his family and friends. It must be awful to lose someone that way. Whether Rodas was speeding and driving recklass, he and Paul didn't deserve this. I think being pulled over and ticketed by a cop would suffice. May they RIP.
