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.

This is too sad to know the pain they suffered. God be with their families let them have peace

I'm no coroner, but even I know that Paul did not have "ALL NATURAL TEETH" - he had an implant or crown at the front left...older video/interview footage proves this. I'm still suspicious about this 'death'; there're too many things that don't add up/make sense.

No head injury? :-( Just wonderful, now that we know all of the other fractures and injuries and they do not include a head injury, we all now know that he was alive still and if he would have been able to move or rescued, he could have survived and made a full recovery. Now we all know he suffered, thanks TMZ! :-(

This has to be the most pathetic piece of crap. Anyone with a brain who saw the video knows how he died. Nobody needs to know how his body looked. I'm sure his family loves reading your lame journalism.

As if the crash he was involved with was not bad enough, but to dissect his body like some kind of biology project is just disgusting and not necessary!
