Talk about your basic bureaucratic snafus. After his death in 1987 (without autopsy and attributed originally to cardiac arrest), Liberace's body was released to Forest Lawn Hollywood Hills for burial. Shortly thereafter, the Riverside County (CA) coroner demanded that the remains be returned for autopsy because the original cause of death was not acceptable in that Liberace was known to be HIV positive and that AIDS was actually the cause of death. Shuttled back to Riverside (some hundred miles away) he was autopsied, the cause of death changed, and then shuttled back to Hollywood, just prior to his burial. The narrative in this report is beyond interesting, almost beyond words. Two page death certificate included.
