An autopsy on the Paula Abdul fan discovered dead in her car outside of the entertainer’s Beverly Hills home last week has been conducted, but an official cause of death is on hold until toxicology tests can be completed.

 

       Lt. Cheryl MacWillie of the Los Angeles coroner’s office tells E! News the toxicology screenings “will take six to eight weeks.”      

       Although Goodspeed’s brother said Thursday that her body would be released to the family Saturday and flown home to Maine for burial, MacWillie says the remains are still with the coroner.        

       “The body is ready to be released,” said MacWillie, “but the legal next of kin [still] has to make arrangements with a mortuary.”      

       Police suspect Goodspeed’s death was the result of a suicide. Just months ago, she reportedly tried to commit suicide by overdosing on pills, also in a car parked on Abdul’s street, E! News reported.
