Coroner: Cause of death in Breitbart death not expected for weeks

The Los Angeles County Coroner said Friday that he could not issue a cause of death determination for conservative activist and writer Andrew Breitbart, who collapsed and died Thursday while walking in his neighborhood.

According to the coroner's office, the final cause of death has been "deferred" while waiting for the results of toxicological and microscopic tests.

Those tests could take between six and eight weeks. It's not known what killed the 43-year-old website editor, although family and friends have noted that Breitbart had heart issues in the past.
