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.

They're doing an autopsy to discover the EXACT cause of death. It could have been impact it could have been a broken neck, or it could have been after the initial impact, meaning fire. I really hope it's one of the first two. This autopsy needs to be done for his family's sake. I'm sure for closure they want to know and of course the public wants to know the exact cause (even though it's none of our business). Usually when anyone dies from an accident or mysteriously and they are young, an autopsy will be done. So you idiots saying what's the point and you already know the cause - just shut up.

Could there something be wrong with some of the cars Porsche makes? You guys remember that Ryan Dunn passed away the same way.

RIP and all but how come the fact that he was 33 and his GF 16 was never an issue. This was a sex symbol dude so it was ok to sleep with a child?

Has anyone considered whether high octane race fuel contributed to this? The car was said to have been modified. I don't think a regular car fuel bladder would have exploded like this. JMO
