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.

People are stupid. They aren't doing the autopsy to confirm he was in a car accident. They are doing it to find out when he died. He could have died instantly on impact, he could have died in the fire...nobody knows. That's why they are doing the autopsy dumb@sses. You don't know how he died! He could have broke his neck, he could have ruptured his aorta, it could be blunt force trauma to the head, or even the death by fire. If so many of you ignorant people don't want to hear or read about Paul Walker and the accident...then don't! You guys all b*tch and complain yet have commented on every Paul Walker story!

Cause of death? Horrible explosion on impact. WTH? They may never know what happened. The car exploded. There is no black box. Just sad, but honestly!

Hmmm .... call me crazy but I'm thinking that classic Newtonian physics worked the same way it always has ... speed, velocity, mass, etc. Fragile humans in car with no helmets, maybe no seatbelts being worn, no airbags, no crumple zones, etc.

That and the fact that the Porsche Carrera GT is pretty much A GAS BOMB with fat tires and a big engine in the back.

If this car was a horse it would be the wildest untamed mustang you can imagine and not many cowboys would want to ride it.

It is surrounded by extremely expensive carbon fiber designed more to be lightweight than strong like you would see with Formula One racecars.

This kind of car would probably have a NTHSA crash rating of 2 out of 5. It's kind of amazing that this Porsche GT is street legal.

A friend states in one of your videos that Paul was unconscious when they were trying to rescue him from the car so at least he would not have been aware of what was happening :(

Fire is an horrific way to die. Too bad Rodas thought of himself as a 'world-class' driver, seems he was an arrogant rich guy showing off in a car he had no business driving. RIP Paul Walker. :(
