Lisa Marie Presley’s cause of death has not yet been determined after an initial autopsy examination, according to the Los Angeles County Coroner.
“Presley was examined on Jan. 14 and the cause of death was deferred. Deferred means that after an autopsy, a cause of death has not been determined and the medical examiner is requesting more investigation into the death, including additional studies. Once the tests/studies come back, the doctor evaluates the case again and makes the cause of death determination,” Sarah Ardalani, a spokesperson with the LA County Dept. of Medical Examiner-Coroner told CNN.
The singer and songwriter died last week after being hospitalized following an apparent cardiac arrest.
She was 54.

On Wednesday, CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta explained that there could be a multitude of reasons for the deferral.
“There are things on an initial autopsy, trauma, stroke, significant infections, blood clots, pulmonary embolism,” he said. “If you see those and they’re obvious within the initial physical autopsy, they may come back with a cause of death. But there are things that are deferred.”
“They may want to evaluate more medical records and get more history,” he added.
A public memorial for Presley has been planned at Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee on January 22, according to a statement on Graceland’s website.
“In lieu of flowers, the family encourages all who wish to send something to do so in the form of a donation to The Elvis Presley Charitable Foundation,” a notice on the site reads.
The Elvis Presley Charitable Foundation supports arts, education, and efforts on behalf of children in the Memphis area.
Elvis Presley purchased the estate in 1957 when he was just 22 years old.
He died in the mansion from cardiac arrest in 1977 and is buried on the grounds of Graceland, which is now a museum and a popular tourist attraction. Lisa Marie Presley will be buried there as well, alongside her son Benjamin Keough, who died by suicide in 2020 at the age of 27.
