2:35 P.M. PT -- The coroner tells us the autopsies on both bodies are now complete ... but we're still waiting to find out the exact cause of death.  The findings could be announced later today.  Story developing ...
update_grey_gray_bar
We may soon know the exact cause of Paul Walker's death ... TMZ has learned the coroner's office will begin the autopsy shortly.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... the autopsies on Walker and Roger Rodas will be completed today.  We're told the coroner also hopes to make positive ID on both bodies ... which was delayed because dental records were needed.

Walker and his racing partner Rodas were killed Saturday when the Porsche Carrera GT they were driving in crashed into a pole. Witnesses on the scene say it appeared both men burned to death when the car exploded in a fireball.

The cause of the accident is still under investigation.

The real victims here are the families and friends. I find it hard to be compassionate toward two individuals that were acting in a reckless manner endangering others lives. It's sad that both men lost their lives but there are consequences for reckless behavior. If you want to drive fast then go rent time at the race track. I do. I really feel for the mother's, father's, brother's, and sisters. Not so much for the two that decided to act selfish and create such a tragedy.

The pictures indicate impact of the tree was on the passengers side. Walker could have been killed instantly due to impact. The driver was probably the one seen flayling around in the flames. So, the autopsies should be helpful.

Gross as it is, the reason for an autopsy is to find out first if alcohol was connected, and second to see if they died on impact or from the fire itself. Soot in the lungs will show if they stopped breathing befor the explosion.

I am so sick of this guy being treated like some g..d..m hero, he was in a car going way over the speed limit and died because like most other celebs he was an idiot, admitted to driving 185 on a freeway with our families like he is so much better than you or I

I think the cause of death was a car crash.

this means that it is not confirmed who was actualy driving, they coudl have switched in between. They had no Chance and that is a safe car. The Impact alone would have killed them and I highly doubt one of them was conscious if not. The firefighters took at least 5 min to arrive, nobody would have been alive anymore by the time they arrived.

I am no expert but crashing into a tree at a high rate of speed and burning up in the car could be the cause of death? Just a guess on my part.
