At a press conference held by the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office just a few moments ago, spokesperson Craig Harvey announced that the cause of death has been "deferred" because the medical examiner has ordered additional testing and toxicology reports, including neuropathology and pulmonary tests. Those test results will be available in approximately 4-6 weeks, and only then will the medical examiner be able to close the case and issue final cause of death.
Jackson was officially pronounced dead at the emergency room at the UCLA Medical Center, and there were no signs of foul play or external trauma to his body. However, LAPD has still requested a security hold on the investigation, so a limited amount of information is being made available on Jackson's shocking death.
This is still so shocking...
