According to TMZ we may never know exactly what killed Joan Rivers because a decision had been made by Joans?s family not to do an autopsy. According to them;
?Melissa Rivers was despondent when Joan died and told doctors she did not want an autopsy performed. According to New York law, doctors will honor such a request if there’s no evidence of criminality associated with the death?.
The reports that previously claimed that the cause of her death was deprivation of oxygen which caused irreversible brain damage were just predicted and not done by autopsy, therefore it was not definitive.
So the real cause of Joan’s death may forever stay a mystery except her family changes their minds.
