The autopsy results of pop legend Michael Jackson will be held by the Los Angeles County coroner’s office until the investigation into the events that led up to the singer’s death is complete.

The coroner has not yet provided a date for when the results will be released as the Los Angeles police continues to investigate Jackson’s death, ABC news reported.

A search warrant executed last month at the home and offices Jackson’s personal physician Conrad Murray indicated that authorities believed Jackson’s death may have been the result of manslaughter.

“The LAPD has requested that the Jackson autopsy findings regarding the cause and manner of death remain confidential. The LAPD has respectfully requested from the coroner’s office that the existing security hold on the results of the coroner’s investigation remain in place,” the police said in a statement.

Search warrants indicate the Houston-based doctor is a specific target of a police manslaughter investigation and searches of his office and a storage facility yielded drugs, documents and computer hard drives.
