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.

my 2 cents    

My hunch is that the driver did a speedy peal out and lost control.

I don't exactly get what happened here...
The tree the car is wrapped around is a little bitty thing. If they were going at a high rate of speed, lost control and hit this tree - I would think that the tree would have been blown to pieces and the car would have kept moving. Is it at all possible that the car blew up while driving, causing the driver to lose control, sliding into the tree?

Something strange here.

i Think 99% is obvious that the Paul Walker body , .... so autopsy is only to confirm?yes?
2 - The irresponsible driver Roger Rodas crash the car then could not get out of fire ...
3-Murder?,maybe the car was sabotaged?

TMZ always stating the obvious. That was such a horrible accident. There was no rescuing anyone in the car because the vehicle was either fully engulfed or partically charred. I saw a clip of some drivers going by and noticing the driver was already deceased. A horrible, horrible accident indeed. We know speed was involved. A race car driver in Porsche. The statement alone has speed written all over it.

I just think its sick that some of u people show no empathy for paul walker, i mean he's a human being, with kids and a girl friend and I think no one deserve to die like that. I hope someday, things will get better for his family . I hope ,if there's a after life, paul can at lease be at peace with the situation.
