Security Hold Place on Carrie Fisher’s Autopsy Report Before She Is Laid to Rest with Debbie Reynolds
The coroner in charge of Carrie Fisher’s case has placed a security hold on her autopsy report, according to Entertainment Tonight.
In addition to confirming that Fisher has been cremated, Los Angeles Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter told ET that the department is withholding the details of her death at this time. Winter said that it’s “sometimes” normal to put a security hold on an autopsy report “when it’s a high-profile case or if there’s something they’re looking at.” This will delay the release of information for a week or longer.
Winter did not elaborate any further on this decision or disclose who requested the security hold.
Prior to this update, a source close to the Fisher told ET that a private memorial will be held for Fisher on Thursday (Jan. 5, 2017) and that her mother, Debbie Reynolds, will be laid to rest in L.A. with some of Fisher’s ashes. A public memorial will take place a few months from now, according to the inside source.
