Walker autopsy completed, results held pending investigation

The autopsies of Paul Walker and the alleged driver, presumed to be his friend and business partner Roger Rodas, were completed on Tuesday, but the results will not yet be released, according to CNN.

Investigators have placed a "security hold" on preliminary findings of the autopsies of the remains of two men -- presumed to be Walker and friend Roger Rodas, a coroner's officer said. The autopsies were completed Tuesday, Los Angeles County Coroner Lt. Fred Corral said.

The coroner is even keeping whether or not their identities were confirmed via dental X-rays a secret, still referring to the deceased by their case numbers.

It has been presumed that Rodas was the driver and Walker the passenger, but the results of the autopsies will also be able to confirm that, once details are released.

CNN obtained security camera footage on Tuesday from the opposite of the street from where the 2005 Porsche Carerra GT crashed.

The view of the actual crash is obstructed by hedges, but a falling light pole can be seen, followed by a plume of light smoke 60 seconds later.

At approximately two minutes, a heavy plume of black smoke is seen.

Based on the video, CNN said Walker and Rodas had approximately one minute to exit the vehicle before it exploded, however, because the actual crash cannot be seen, it is unknown what each one was doing right after impact or if they were even conscious.

On Monday night, fellow actor and "Fast and the Furious" co-star Vin Diesel visited the crash site and expressed his heartfelt gratitude to the fans gathered there.
