Paul Walker's Autopsy Released, Full Cause of Death Revealed

Paul Walker's Autopsy Released, Full Cause of Death Revealed

Paul Walker‘s autopsy report has been completed and released, giving more insight into the death of the late actor.

The report concludes that the 40-year-old actor died from a “combined effects of traumatic and thermal injuries,” according to TMZ, and unfortunately, the car was driving at speeds of 100mph before the crash occurred.

The report also reveals that Roger Rodas, his friend, was the one driving the car. No traces of drugs or alcohol were found in either of their bodies.

Along with all this information, there is evidence that Paul may have taken a few breaths after the car hit the tree, though sources close to the investigation have disputed that.

Our continued thoughts go out to Paul‘s friends and family.

    Love you Paul. He’s in a better place yall

  • Love

    He probably passed at the time of the crash. Thank god for that. RIP Paul ! You’re in a better place…

  • Looselipz

    Jared, this is completely unnecessary to post. Have some sympathy for his loved ones.

  • annab

    It’s rather obvious how they died…we don’t really need an autopsy to tell us that it was traumatic. They are at rest now.

  • Mary

    I don’t really understand if he died because of the crash or burned alive, these reports are more confusing than anything

  • jenfan

    @Mary: the crash made him unconscious..then he burned! So had he not burned he would probably be alive! Jared we all loved him but enough with these articles…May he rest in peace!! Race freely in paradise angel!

  • Looselipz


    He never would have survived the impact of that crash, fire or not.

  • jenfan

    @Looselipz: The ambulance was called pretty quickly though…it depends..more than likely he would have still died but he could have also survived!! Tragic loss!! What a kindred soul and beautiful man!! RIP

  • Lestat

    I believe if there would have been no fire he may have survived, but I’m not sure he would have been the same person (physically anyways). If you read the autopsy report he had multiple broken bones and a spinal fracture. He probably would have been in a wheel chair for life.

  • Lestat

    Roger Rodas on the other hand, he was gone before the fire started. He had multiple skull fractures, his brain was visible and was lacerated and his brain stem was also lacerated. He also had multiple broken ribs that penetrated his lungs. The fire had nothing to do with his death.

  • Kimbo

    @jenfan<Paul's @Lestat: The final autopsy on Paul found soot in his lungs which means he took a couple of breaths after the fire started, conscious or not. He would not have survived.

  • Kimbo

    Good God people, quit throwing this back and forth. Let Paul and Roger’s friends and family as well as the fans heal! This does no good but keep the gossip going. Leave it alone.

  • Kel

    Was very shocked wen i read this late last year… but something tells me he is resting now… miss u walker

    I find it hillarious that people will believe anything they read or hear. And whoever owns this site is slandering and unethical and is breaking the law.

    No one knows specifically how fast the car was going. No one knows WHAT that autopsy says except for his family.

    The family would be the ones to give a statement about the findings of the autopsy. The cops are not allowed to say their findings because they are not next of kin.

    I very seriously doubt that the Walker Family would publically announce the findings. Especially not less than three months after the crash. They are still grieving.

    This “Jared” person is not only posting trash like this but rubbing it in peoples faces about who has what role that was coming up or offered to Paul.

    This is petty and makes it seem the only reason people got those roles is because Paul was taken from us.

    And to correct this low life, Paul’s last movie was not Brick Mansion’s.. It was Fast Seven.

    So again get your facts straight. Paul’s family has not released a statement as to what the report says.

    Let the family grieve in peace already. Let this angel rest. Stop posting trash about celebrities and if your going to continue.. move on..

    How would you like it if someone started posting trash and lies about you to where your children and family could see it. I hope the Walker’s sue you for everything you got and your arrested. I understand freedom of speech but you take the cake at false statements. Bravo Jared, Bravo.

    So your stating that people in house fires who inhale smoke really dont do so because they wouldn’t survive if they did. Good grief… I guess Im a walking talking ghost then.

    And my uncle who had a firey crash in a car and survived but with scars. He was uncouncious from the wreak.

    Wow.,. you know everything huh
