Autopsies on Paul Walker and his friend Roger Rodas who passed away in a fiery car crash on Saturday, November 30 have been completed. However, the Los Angeles County coroner's office said that the final results were not available yet.

Craig Harvey of the Los Angeles County coroner's office explained in an email to Los Angeles Times that examinations had been completed, but the final identification of the bodies would only start on Tuesday evening. "No results will be released until at the earliest, tomorrow," he added.

A representative for Walker took to Facebook on Tuesday, December 3 to deny reports stating that the "Fast and Furious" actor's daughter Meadow was with him at the Reach Out Worldwide charity event and witnessed his death. "It is unfortunate that claims are being made to the media that Paul's daughter Meadow was at the event on Saturday when the accident occurred. We want to clarify that Paul went to the event alone. Meadow was not at the charity event on Saturday and thankfully, did not witness the accident. Any claims stating otherwise are inaccurate," the statement read.

Walker's family additionally has asked fans to made donations to his charity Reach Out Worldwide (ROWW) in lieu of flowers or other gifts. As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, Universal also has stated that a part of proceeds made from the DVD sales of "Fast and Furious 6" will be donated to the organization.

Universal Pictures chairman Donna Langley said, "With the passing of Paul, the world has lost a man who spent a great deal of his life in service to others. We share in the deep grief of his family, friends and the countless fans who love him. We keep Paul's memory alive and honor his legacy through continued support of Reach Out WorldWide, the nonprofit he founded to give hope to those who must rebuild after they have experienced natural disasters." The DVD will go on sale in North America on December 10.

Tyrese Gibson, who co-starred in the movie franchise and went to the crash site in tears, reportedly is helping Walker's family with the funeral arrangement. On Monday, Vin Diesel also visited the car crash site and gave an impromptu speech using a sheriff's car's microphone.

Calling the late actor "brother," the "XXX" actor thanked fans for their continuous support. "At this hard time his family gets to see all of you show the love that you've shown Paul. It's going to stay with me forever. I just wanted to say thank you. Thank you for coming down here and showing that angel up in heaven how much you appreciate him," Diesel said.
