Updated Information on Lisa Marie Presley’s Cause of Death

Lisa Marie Presley’s cause of death remains unknown over a week after her untimely demise. After passing suddenly last Thursday following a heart attack, the singer-songwriter had an autopsy. However, the Los Angeles County Coroner ordered more tests before making a decision.

“Presley’s cause of death was not determined after she was examined on January 14. Deferred means that the medical examiner is requesting additional studies because the cause of death was not determined after an autopsy. “Once the findings of the tests or studies are in, the doctor reassesses the case and decides the cause of death,” says Sarah Ardalani, a representative for Yahoo Entertainment.
