Fans of late comedienne Joan Rivers may never know her actual cause of death because an autopsy was never done. It was previously reported that Rivers’ cause of death was a lack of oxygen to her brain during what was thought to be a routine surgery, but now friends and family may never know.

Sources connected to the NYC Medical Examiner tell us … Melissa Rivers was despondent when Joan died and told doctors she did not want an autopsy performed. According to New York law, doctors will honor such a request if there’s no evidence of criminality associated with the death.
