Autopsy Of Surfer Who Died At DFW Hotel Delayed, Again
HONOLULU (AP) – The release of surfing champion Andy Irons’ autopsy report is again being delayed.
Tarrant County District Judge Donald J. Crosby has approved a 30-day extension of a temporary injunction preventing the report’s release at the request of Irons’ widow, Lyndie Irons.
The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports the autopsy was scheduled to be released Friday after the five-month injunction was granted in December.
The 32-year-old Irons was found dead Nov. 2 in his hotel room at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, where he was staying on a layover on his way home to Hawaii.
A police report said anti-anxiety medication Xanax and sleeping aid Ambien were found in Irons’ hotel room. There were no signs of trauma and foul play.
Lyndie Irons argued that releasing the autopsy report could tarnish her husband’s brand.
