Five weeks after the mysterious death of Las Vegas headliner Danny Gans, the Clark County Coroner's Office has suddenly clamped down on information regarding the toxicology reports that could finally explain what killed the musical impressionist.

The initial autopsy performed after the local superstar was found dead in his bed at the age of 52 proved inconclusive, and the coroner's office announced that tissue samples would be sent out for toxicology testing in order to determine how the heart of the seemingly robust entertainer suddenly gave out at the age of 52.

The coroner initially said the tests would take "several weeks" to come in. This was later amended to "up to 12 weeks," though everyone we spoke to at the coroner's office had insisted there was nothing unusual in the findings or the delay in receiving the toxicology test results.

Today, however, amid reports of steroid use and a report by a Gans' close friend, the beauty queen-turned-TV entertainment reporter Alicia Jacobs that the tests had been completed and were now awaiting a summarization for public consumption, all conversation has ceased and a spokeswoman told a TabloidBaby.com journalist just minutes ago:

"I cant give out any information."

"At this point we're not allowed to give out any information."

When asked about the veracity of last night's report by Jacobs, the spokeswoman said:

"I don't know anything about that. I don't know who that is."

The Associated Press this morning paraphrases coroner Mike Murphy saying that toxicology and microscopic reports have been submitted to a medical examiner, who still hasn't determined a cause or manner of death:

"Murphy says that ruling will be checked before being made public.. (in) two or three weeks... Murphy notes that police suspect no foul play, and says his medical examination isn't taking longer than usual."

The coroner's spokeswoman did say that Murphy is now deciding how to break the news when he's ready to share it with the public. She denied that Jacobs is being given an inside track on the story or that Jacobs will be given the results first in order to break the news with her own spin, as she has done since Gan's manager informed her at 4 a.m. on May 1st, minutes after paramedics had arrived at Gans home, that her close personal friend had passed away.

"I don't even know who she is," the spokeswoman insisted.
