Lisa Marie's body was examined by the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner on Jan. 14 and the cause of death was deferred, Fox News Digital previously confirmed.

Deferred means that "after an autopsy, a cause of death has not been determined and the medical examiner is requesting more investigation into the death, including additional studies," public information officer Sarah Ardalani told Fox News Digital.

"Once the tests/studies come back, the doctor evaluates the case again and makes the cause of death determination."
