Cory Monteith Autopsy Complete, Results Expected on Tuesday

Cory Monteith‘s autopsy has been completed, but the cause of death ruling may be delayed by toxicology reports.

“It was done today, and that included taking samples for toxicology,” B.C. Coroner Services spokeswoman Barb McLintock told THR about the 31-year-old actor’s autopsy.

The results of the initial autopsy are expected to be available tomorrow, with Cory‘s family being the first in line to know.

If the autopsy results are inconclusive, additional tests may be done to determine the cause of death for Cory, who was found dead in his Vancouver hotel room.

    There are murder victims whose autopsies are not done this quickly. While his death is tragic, is his autopsy so much more important than solving a murder?

    @k:
    2 days later is not really that fast. Usually done within 24hrs unless unusual backup.
    They didn’t call the Pathologist in from their weekend break or anything.
