Michael Jackson‘s long-awaited autopsy has been completed by the L.A. County Coroner’s Office — including a cause of death — but it is on indefinite security hold at the LAPD’s request, TMZ reports.

TMZ’s sources say the reason for the LAPD’s secrecy is because it could make the investigation into MJ’s death more difficult than it already is. The opinion of TMZ it that the coroner’s report will show that Michael’s death was caused by another person, a finding which could scare potential witnesses the LAPD would need to interview.
