Paul Walker

Autopsy Report

Horrifying Injuries

EXCLUSIVE

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.

They were idiots driving too fast and killed themselves. Who the hell cares? Oh...right....the "conspiracy" theorists madly spreading rumors of how "he's alive" like he's some sort of magic Jesus. Move along. He was burned to a crisp. Get over it.

I love all the losers who idolize these guys like they found a cure for cancer. 12 days after these pork chops got BBQ'd in a car accident (89 people die in car accidents every day) 13 innocent people were murdered by a drone in Yemen by our government... Get a clue celebrity gossip hores!

Very sad that such a blindingly gorgeous man had to die in such a way, but something tells me the people who knew him well have been afraid of this for a very long time because of his need for fast cars and living on the edge.

The public should know the physical cost of driving too fast in every graphic detail. Let's not sugar coat it. Good for TMZ and all the media that are reporting details from the autopsy.

Its getting kinda sad that every time tmz reports news about, half the comments are from people judging them for doing the same thing that most news sites would be doing if they hadn't. If y'all have such a damn problem with it, why go read the story, hell why even go on the site. You do it because as much as you certain ones bitch about there reporting, your intrigued by there stories so get over it.

TMZ . . you fail to mention that the report also said they were going over 100 mph, which was in the NY Daily News story about the cause of death report.

is there any reason you feel the need to graphically describe the extent of this incredibly talented and very loved superstar's death.. first and foremost, he was someone's dad, someone's son and someone's brother.. I am discusted by the lack of empathy any of you who contributed to this story have displayed.. and omg, kharma is an ugly thing.. how horrible is this story that you felt compelled to write.. do you realize how much heartache you are causing his child..uggh..

People on here want TMZ to have more respect for "Paul" than he had for himself and his own safety, and yes the welfare of his beloved daughter.

Shame on you TMZ. It does not take a rocket scientist to figure out how he died. This was very insensitive of you.

Paul lived fast, died young, and had a handsome corpse. Something I failed to do.
