* JACKSON'S FINAL AUTOPSY REPORT DUE IN FOUR TO SIX WEEKS A final verdict from MICHAEL JACKSON's autopsy will take up to six weeks, the chief coroner investigating his death has announced. Police seized vials of prescription drugs from the entertainer's rented Holmby Hills estate in Los Angeles as part of their ongoing investigation into what caused the King of Pop's cardiac arrest and death on Thursday (25Jun09), leading to speculation Jackson suffered a drug overdose. Earlier reports suggested results from the autopsy would be available on Friday (26Jun09), one day after The King of Pop passed away. However, Los Angeles coroner officials - who have found no evidence of foul play in Jackson's death - are taking extra time to complete toxicology, neuropathology and pulmonary tests before determining the exact cause. Chief coroner and investigator Craig Harvey says: The cause of death has been deferred, which means that the medical examiner has ordered additional testing, such as toxicology and other studies, and those tests we anticipate will take approximately four to six weeks to complete. At that time, once those test results have been completed, we anticipate being able to close the case and issue a final cause of death. There was no indication of any external trauma and no indication of foul play on the body Mr. Michael Jackson. Meanwhile, Jackson's body has been released and his family is free to make funeral arrangements.
