We may never know exactly what killed Joan Rivers ... because a decision was made NOT to do an autopsy ... TMZ has learned.
Sources connected to the NYC Medical Examiner tell us ... Melissa Rivers was despondent when Joan died and told doctors she did not want an autopsy performed. According to New York law, doctors will honor such a request if there's no evidence of criminality associated with the death.
