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.

This whole thing is sad. He seemed like a really nice guy. Sad for his friend too.

On the topic of celebrities...I created a survey for school to measure the interest in an app that will take you on a tour of celebrity homes, hot spots, burial locations and more. I'd love if some of you could take the time to fill it out for me! It's short, anonymous, and will just be used for my class: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/38K7FRB
Thanks!

I just rather hear that they died on impact, because it hurts too much to know they were there suffering while being burned alive : (

Just out of complete curiosity and no knowledge of forensic science or whatever.. How can coroners with 100 certainty determine the cause of death? How can they determine if the death was caused by impact, explosion or fire? Anyone knowledgable on the subject matter...?

I guess results won't be released tonight. The coroner and police are not finished with tests and investigating, so the information should be released tomorrow.

obvious conclusion: Walker died of Darwin Syndrome; act like a reckless fool enough times, the probability of biting the dust just increases. Sad but true and everyone knows its the truth. The irony that his demise coincides with the theme of the franchise whicvh is his main claim to fame is just what he will be footnoted for in celeb history.

I know it's wrong to speculate, but I'm guessing they died in a car crash? - It's in all the newspapers!
