Coroner: Toxicology results in Chyna autopsy could get months

An autopsy will be performed on the wrestler Chyna in the following few days, however it'll be months before toxicology test results can define whether she died of a suspected drug overdose, the LA County coroner'south office said Friday.

Ed Winter, a spokesman for the coroner'south office, said police initially reported the wrestler'south death as a possible overdose. The World Wrestling Entertainment star, whose genuine title was Joan Marie Laurer, had some prescription medication at her Redondo Shore apartment, "but not a lot," Winter said.

Winter said on Friday that the possible overdose was likely reported because of the 46-year-old'south history of drug abuse and interviews with neighbors.

"Everybody seemed to know she'd problems, but they didn't know to what extent," Winter said.

The time and date of Chyna'south death hadn't yet been determined, Winter said. The latest time anybody had any contact with her was on Sunday, he said.

According to a civil grand jury report released Thursday, the L. A. County coroner'south office has seen a growing backlog of autopsies and toxicology reports, due to underfunding.

Highlighting the LA County backlog was news that an autopsy on the performer Prince - who was found deceased in his residence Thursday - would start Friday morning, according to the Midwest Medical Examiner'south Office in Anoka, Minn.

"Gathering the results will get several days and the results of a full toxicology scanning could likely get weeks," the office said in a release.

Winter said it was frustrating to have people compare the speed of Prince'south autopsy to Chyna's.

"I'm going to get fifty calls today asking why MN can have the results so quick and we can't," Winter said.

Winter said it'd get months to obtain the full toxicology results in Chyna'south autopsy and that his office wouldn't discuss any preliminary toxicology screenings because they frequently don't paint the full picture.

He well-known that the Marin County coroner was criticized for releasing details on the condition of actor Robin Williams' body just a day after his death and prior to final autopsy results.

Redondo Shore police officers found Chyna'south body on a bed in her residence on Wednesday afternoon, after receiving a call from her companion about a woman not breathing. The companion told police that Chyna hadn't answered her phone in a few days.

There were number signs of foul play, police said.

Three days before her body was found, Chyna posted a rambling and sometimes incoherent video on YouTube. In the 13-minute video, she wears headphones and feathers in her hair and speaks in slurred speech as she goes through her morning routine and talks about the vitamins she's taking.

In the video, she said she'd friends coming over later in the day.

Chyna posted several pictures on her Instagram account in recent days in which she'd a black eye.

She posted a smiling selfie on Sun that appeared to be in her bedroom.

"Happy Sun my lovelies I hope you all appreciate your day with your family," she wrote. "Be Happy, Like each other, and Live in Peace!"
