Paul Walker

Autopsy Report

Horrifying Injuries

1/3/2014 1:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Paul Walker's entire body was charred through the skin it was burned so badly ... this according to the autopsy ... burned so bad none of his organs were suitable for donation.

According to the report ... obtained by TMZ ... Walker's body was laying supine in the passenger seat in a "pugilistic stance" -- that's a defensive position, as if he were bracing himself for impact.

He had multiple fractures throughout his body, including his jaw, collarbone, and left upper arm.  There were also various ribs and pelvic fractures.

The report concludes Walker died from "combined effects of traumatic and thermal injuries" sustained from the Nov. 30 crash in Santa Clarita, CA.

According to the report, the L.A. County Coroner is preserving portions of Paul's organs in a jar -- sources tell us tissues are kept for a certain period of time in case of lawsuits.

Roger Rodas -- the driver -- suffered major head trauma with the top portion of his skull fractured and his brain exposed.

No alcohol or drug traces were found in either body.

The report also says there was "scant soot in Walker's trachea" -- suggesting he took a few breaths after impact.  Sources close to the investigation, however, tell TMZ, they believe both men died almost immediately.

And the report goes on ... Paul had 14% carbon monoxide saturation in his blood stream ... the normal level is 2%.  Roger had 10%.

According to the report ... after impact the car spun 180 degrees, struck a tree and nearly tore in half before exploding in flames.

Truth be told     

Funny TMZ left out the part of the report that said the car was traveling at over 100 mph when it hit the tree.

Please leave these men rest in peace already. It doesn't serve any purpose to continue and prolong the agony of the families of these young men. It's sick to keep reporting on such a tragedy!

Please correct your article. The hypothesis you propose is ludicrous. A ‘defensive’ position or pugilistic pose is typically seen in severely burned bodies, characterised by flexion of elbows, knees, hip, and neck, and clenching of hand into a fist; it is caused by high-temperatures in fire, resulting in muscle stiffening and shortening; it occurs even if the person was dead before the fire. Don't guess!

If you dummys want to keep complaining about what TMZ posts, why don't you just stop reading? I'm sure Perez Hilton wouldn't mind new subscribers. TMZ is just doing their job of reporting anything that could be found to be entertaining...gruesome or not. So if you wanna keep bitc%ing, stop reading and go somewhere else.

TOM CRUISE and the illuminati saw an end to Paul.

As Paul was trying to start his own cult that competed with Tom Cruises.

Tom can win any war in America you fools!

He has an army of Top Gun planes.

His war on religon will be remembered as the greatest war of all.

This cult will bring in WW3 and blend muslims, christians, buddhists and all religons into the illuminati.

May god bless Tom and his holy war!!
