Jackson's Cause of Death Requires Further Tests


L.A. County Coroner's office Operations Chief Craig Harvey announced to the media on Friday the coroner has concluded the autopsy on Michael Jackson.

Harvey said the coroner's office has deferred the cause of death and the medical examiner has ordered additional testing, including toxicology and neuropathology tests. The tests will take 4 to 6 weeks to complete.

Harvey says the autopsy was completed at 1:00 PM PST and took about 3 hours. He told the press, "We know he was taking some prescription medications," but Harvey would not comment on any specific drugs.

It is confirmed there was no external trauma or foul play.
