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.

Man nuts roasting on an open fire,
Fiery Flames are nipping on your nose,
Fast Furious flames are consuming the Porsche,
And folks taking pics like frigging tourists.

Everybody knows a fast crash and some gasoline,
Help to make the season bright.
Crispy Tater tots with their eyes all aglow,
Will find it hard to sleep tonight.

They know that Santa's on his way;
He's loaded lots of drugs and hookers on his sleigh.
And every mother's child is gonna spy,
To see if actors really know how to fly.

Why are so many people commenting about how the TMZ people are disguising? If you are so tired of what they do, don't click on their articles. Some people such as my self WANT to hear the details, and that's why I read them. I WANT to know what happened so I can have peace of mind, and have some of my questions answered.

Now this is an easy one!

How about the cause of death was stupidity on part of the driver causing a 95mph chunk of metal to slam into a tree and burn to a crsip.

They should call this one "Packed and Fried!"
