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.

OK. If your going to bitch about what TMZ posts wouldn't it be simpler not to go to TMZ and READ what they post? Their job is to report the most current stories. Paul Walker is the most current story. TMZ is a gossip rag no question but they are the most accurate rag I've read!

TMZ's managing editor is Harvey Levin, a lawyer-turned-journalist who was previously a legal expert for the Los Angeles television station KCBS-TV.[6] The site claims that it does not pay for stories or interviews; however, Levin has admitted that TMZ does "sometimes pay sources for leads on stories".[7][8][9] Levin has stated that "everything is researched and vetted for accuracy."[10] A companion television series, TMZ on TV, debuted on September 10, 2007.

They have more respect than any of the others which I'm sure is why a lot of the starts do Exclusives with them. If your gonna bitch about em...GET OFF THE SITE than you won't have nothing to bitch about!

I know it's horrifying and I'm back in tears by reading this, but are we going to see the full report, like we did with MJ and Whitney?

I would rather read another paid story about Kim and her klan than to read about another person's death. Not cool TMZ.

Did anyone expect anything different. You don't make movies about driving fast and really think the guy and friend were not driving fast. All of the excuses people made for them were useless. At least they killed themselves instead of innocents,
