(Newser) – The Los Angeles County coroner's office has delayed the release of Michael Jackson's autopsy results indefinitely after meeting with police investigators, the Los Angeles Times reports. Officials, who earlier said that the results would probably be out next week, now say they have no idea when they will be made public. The results are expected to make clear what killed the singer.

Search warrants this week indicate that investigators are exploring communications between Jackson's personal doctor and other health professionals, and are considering charges including excessive prescribing, prescribing to an addict, manslaughter and unprofessional conduct.
