Paul Walker's sudden death in a car accident has rocked the entertainment world. Now TMZ is reporting that his body was burned so badly in the car accident that it is 'unidentifiable.' A rep for the L.A. county coroner told the entertainment news website that only dental records would be able to reveal the identity of each body. This means tha the autopsy of both Walker and Roger Rodas will be delayed until later this week. 

Paul Walker starred in 5 of the 6 "The Fast and The Furious" movies. It is tragic that he should be killed doing what he was most well known for: driving. The "Fast and the Furious" star was in Santa Clarita for a car show to support the Philippines typhoon relief effort . The accident happened during a test drive in his Porsche GT. His friend Roger Rodas was driving the vehicle. They had been friends for nearly ten years.

Paul Walker was in the midst of making "Fast and the Furious 7" when his life was tragically cut short at just 40 years of age. The actor was set to go on a media tour to promote his latest film, "Hours."
