A physical autopsy has been completed on comedienne Joan Rivers, who died Thursday in New York, but TMZ.com reports that the results were inconclusive, with the Medical Examiner needing more information to determine her cause of death.

“The Medical Examiner’s Office tells us they’ve completed the physical examination of Joan’s body, but could not find a clear ’cause and manner of death’ … pending further studies,” the story reports. “We’re told those further studies will include conducting toxicology testing, and interviewing medical professionals who were present during the throat procedure Joan was getting last week when she stopped breathing.”

State Health Department officials in New York announced Thursday that they are conducting their own investigation into the circumstances leading up to Rivers’ death, as we reported previously.
