Antley autopsy is inconclusive
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- An autopsy confirmed that jockey Chris Antley sustained head injuries, but it failed to pinpoint the cause of death.
"The examination at this point is inconclusive," Scott Carrier, spokesman for the Los Angeles County coroner's office, said Tuesday.
Carrier declined to detail the extent or nature of the injuries. Police have said they were investigating the death as a homicide.
Antley, a two-time Kentucky Derby winner, had "severe head trauma" when his body was found Saturday night at his Pasadena home, police said.
Results of routine toxicology and other tests will take six to eight weeks, Carrier said.
Antley, 34, battled drug, alcohol and weight problems during his riding career, which ended in March.
