Jeff Conaway's Family Awaits Autopsy Ruling, Struggles With Funeral Plans

| Filed under: Sad Sad

jeff conaway family awaits toxicology results before funeral

Yesterday, we learned that late actor Jeff Conaway's family decided to have an autopsy performed on his body to ensure that foul play wasn't involved in his death.

Now, his autopsy is complete and his body has been released to the Los Angeles County Coroner as the family awaits the autopsy ruling/toxicology test results, which could take as much as six weeks.

In the meanwhile, they're attempting to start planning Jeff's funeral, but they're struggling with it.

Here's what a source had to say about it:

"Michelle and Carla are grappling with what type of service to have for Jeff. They are simply overwhelmed with the logistics of planning the funeral. Jeff is going to be cremated, but it could take place in a few weeks or in the next few months."

"They also have to contend with how to handle Jeff's ex-fiancee, Vikki Spinoza. There is no love lost between Vikki and Jeff's family. They need to work out what's the best way to handle the situation. They're going to take their time to plan something special and meaningful."

We don't blame Jeff's family for feeling overwhelmed, but we know they'll figure it out and we're sure everything will go just fine with the funeral.

Our thoughts remain with Jeff's family and friends during this difficult time.

    May his soul rest in peace. I lost my mom not too long ago and the situation is kinda surreal, I understand his family being overwhelmed and in the other hand I remember his ex-fiance filing for a restraining order so now that he has pass she shouldn't be allowed to be near the family.

    I think Conway's ex should not be allowed to be at the services and upset the family. the ex girlfriend can still mourn quietly with her friends and family. She should leave the family be.

    Why waste any time on an EX fiancee? Its nice they thought about here - but she has neither a legal nor a moral right to funeral planning.

    He was a known substance abuser. That lifestyle wreaks all kinds of damage on a human body. The whole notion that his death "might" have been the result of foul play is a big leap in this instance.

    Hmmph….not with Vikki around. I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if she had gotten back with him right before this happened.
    She is a leech and used him for his drugs (she is a user and enabler) and his $$$, whatever he had left. His IMDB is full of characters and voiceovers. And….he had several projects in pre- and post-production, so I don't think he was hard up. Plus his union benefits after his death.
    What a waste of a tremendous talent, but I can empathize living with chronic pain myself. I also have to be *very* careful due a massive history of chemical and alcohol abuse on every family tree root I look at!
    Jeff….you will be missed!
