We know authorities believe speed was the main factor in the fiery crash that killed Paul Walker and friend Roger Rodas, but the L.A. Sheriff’s Department says the investigation is ongoing…
The two men left a charity event in a 2005 Porsche Carerra on November 30, only to crash a few minutes later. Rodas was behind the wheel when the car hit a tree and light pole and burst into flames.
The LASD told “Extra in a statement, “No conclusions have yet been reached as to the cause of the collision.”
Traffic investigators with the department plan to meet with Porsche engineers in January who will “analyze the data retrieval system (computer) in the car.”
The statement continued, “Information that might possibly be obtained from the computer is speed, RPM’s, throttle opening, air bag deployment, seat belt use, and other possible information. None of these factors has yet been concluded.”
According to the Associated Press, the LASD has estimated the speed of the car, but won’t disclose it. Instead, they plan to wait on the results provided by Porsche.
One theory points to wet roads and possible hydroplaning on the “Bott’s Dots” road dividers.
Paul Walker corpse photos too disturbing, Twitter fans beg to stop exploitation of ‘Fast and Furious’ star’s tragic death with the sale of disrespectful crash scene images
As if Paul Walker’s sudden death wasn’t tragic enough, now there’s this.
Photos from the horrifying crash scene are currently going viral on the web. The alleged images show the charred remains of both 40-year-old Walker and his longtime friend Roger Rodas. As Mstars previously reported:
These gruesome photos of the deceased “Fast and Furious” actor are currently being shopped on the web to the “highest bidder.” An insider who already saw one of the graphic images tells Globe magazine:
”The image is truly horrifying. The picture … shows the bodies of the two victims [Walker and friend Roger Rodas] – and makes sure you can’t miss them by outlining the corpses in color! It shows the inside of the Porsche after it was ravaged by fire… The bodies are severely burned and can be clearly seen lying inside the vehicle. Walker’s body is still fairly intact. He has fallen backwards and his arms are spread apart. He is completely burned. No more clothes on his body.”
Walker and longtime friend Roger Rodas passed away in a tragic car explosion in Southern California on November 30. Apparently, the on-scene snapshots also include images of Rodas. The source explains that his body is “badly burned” as well – “just his upper body can be seen.”
The insider concludes, “It’s outrageous to think that the Walker or Rodas family could be surfing the internet and click on these pictures and see their relatives like this.”
Very true – which is why Mstars News will NOT re-post the heartbreaking photos here. Two alleged images of the corpses have already leaked online, but it remains unconfirmed if they’re actually real or not (some sicko could’ve just photoshopped the pics to try and earn some extra cash).
Just hours after the crash scene pictures went viral, several fans hit-up Twitter emotionally requesting that the images be taken off the internet:
@tatianaryan18: “Paul Walker corpse pictures for sale? There comes a moment where some humans raise their bar to be less than manure. #disgusting.”
@stifmeister8518: “I can’t believe how people have no heart, Paul Walker’s family has to deal with enough and now some sicko is exploiting his burnt corpse.”
@MyChmclRmnc: “Whoever took a picture of Paul Walker’s dead body and is selling it to tabloids can go to hell.”
@B_Kallasides: “Tell me why someone is trying to sell photos of Paul Walker’s corpse… Would you want someone selling photos of YOUR loved one’s dead body?”
@paigecardona: “humanity has slipped to an all new low. Some idiot is shopping around photos of Paul Walker‘s burnt body for millions. Disgusting!”
Now that these disturbing images have already hit the web, it’ll probably be hard to erase them from cyber space completely. Some gossip outlets are posting the photos simply for “shock” value, and that’s just wrong. But according to one KPopStarz fan named Sue, writing and reading about Walker’s death at all is a shameful form of exploitation:
“We are all guilty of exploiting his death to a degree… by clicking on all of these stories thus encouraging story after story. Shame on us and shame on the media (yes, that includes me!)”
Do Mstars readers agree? Or is it a meaningful way of remembering and paying tribute to the beloved actor?
RIP, Paul Walker.
PAUL Walker‘s family are being dealt another blow — someone who was at the accident scene is trying to sell photos of Walker’s disfigured corpse.
The actor died on November 30 after an horrific car accident where Paul and the driver, Roger Rodas, burned to death.
“The image is truly horrifying,” a source who saw the photo tells Globe magazine. “The picture … shows the bodies of the two victims [Walker and friend Roger Rodas] — and makes sure you can’t miss them by outlining the corpses in color!
“It shows the inside of the Porsche after it was ravaged by fire.
“The bodies are severely burned and can be clearly seen lying inside the vehicle. Walker’s body is still fairly intact. He has fallen backwards and his arms are spread apart. He is completely burned. No more clothes on his body.”
Rodas, meanwhile, is “badly burned” as well, the source says. “Just his upper body can be seen.”
“It’s outrageous to think that the Walker or Rodas family could be surfing the internet and click on these pictures and see their relatives like this.”
