Scoop: Autopsy results on Paul Walker delayed

The autopsy on “Fast & Furious” star Paul Walker is being delayed by at least a week, TMZ reports, because his body was so badly burned in a car crash that coroners need to locate his dental records to positively identify him.

Walker and a friend and business associate were in Santa Clarita, near Los Angeles, on Saturday for a charity event when the Porsche they were riding in reportedly slammed into a tree and exploded. Both men were killed in the crash.

The sad irony of a man dying in a fiery crash who had gained fame in films that celebrate speed and daring has not gone unnoticed on the Internet, but viewing a photo of the mangled wreck will make anyone take pause before cracking a joke.
