Twelve weeks? Still no word on the cause of Danny Gans' death; If the Coroner takes a year, will the Las Vegas news media simply wait?

With a little more than twenty four hours until the scheduled start of the invitation-only memorial service for Danny Gans at the Encore Theatre on the Las Vegas Strip, the Clark County Coroner's office still has no answers as to the question of what killed the clean-living, Born Again Christian and seemingly healthy musical impressionist in the early morning hours of May 1st.

"No, the toxicology report is still pending," said another very helpful spokeswoman at the office a few minutes ago. "It usually takes four to twelve weeks for any case to be processed."

"Twelve weeks?"

"That's right."

"Is there any rush on this particular case because of who he is... or was?"

"Not that I know of."

The mention of "twelve weeks" is the first time we've heard anything beyond four weeks when it comes to an answer in the disquieting death of this very unique entertainment figure.

It also raises another question: If it takes a year for the toxicology report to be completed and released, will the Las Vegas news media wait that long before covering the story?

No! They'll break into the coroner's office and steal some specimen and do the tests themselves! Or they'll just make something up like the losers who run this site!

not a bad idea, doing the tests themselves.
and what have they made up, Mr. Levin?
