Lisa Marie Presley’s cause of death deferred by coroner
(Gray News) – The cause of death for Lisa Marie Presley was deferred after an initial autopsy examination, according to the Los Angeles Coroner’s Office.
Deferred means a cause of death has not yet been determined although an autopsy has been completed, a spokesperson with the LA County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner explained.
The medical examiner is requesting more investigation into Presley’s death, including additional studies.
“Once the tests/studies come back, the doctor evaluates the case again and makes the cause of death determination,” spokesperson Sarah Ardalani explained.
Presley was pronounced dead at a hospital in West Hills on Jan. 12 after an apparent cardiac arrest. Her autopsy was conducted on Jan. 14.
The singer-songwriter was 54 years old.
She will be buried next to her father, Elvis Presley, and her son Benjamin Presley.
