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.

Their foundation was also helping those in Washington Illinois. I have friends who were affected by the storm and all help is needed. Sad someone who seemed to want to help others was taken so young.

hate to hear it. i wonder if they had nitrous oxide installed on that car, or if they were running a special fuel. it just isn't likely it would explode like that if it was stock. i hope they didn't suffer

Apparently they weren't leaving fast enough. Who the hell drag races on a winding road in the middle of the day. Sorry, but stupid is as stupid does.

At least they didn't take out some innocent people while driving irresponsibly.

Leave it to TMZ to put the sleazy in the story. We know what happens when people die in a fire, you don't have to sensationalize it. Try and grow a heart TMZ.

The more you read into this, the sadder this becomes. May they both RIP. And prayers with the TBN folks as well on the lost of their founder.

Was this article REALLY necessary?! Anyone who has seen the pictures of this horrific accident could gather the two in it probably weren't in good shape. We know they died from a car accident, no need to tell us the autopsy was delayed or anything else. This is a sad attempt to milk this story and the deaths of two men. May the both rest in peace.
