Tragic actor Paul Walker's remains have been claimed by his parents and transported to a local mortuary, according to a U.S. report. The Fast and the Furious star perished in a fiery car crash on 30 November (13) after the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT he was a passenger in slammed into a tree and exploded. Walker's body had been at the L.A. County Coroner's Office during an investigation into his death, but the coroner has finished his report and released the movie star's remains to his family, so they can begin to plan his funeral, according to TMZ.com. An autopsy report indicated the 40 year old died from traumatic and thermal injuries resulting from the accident. Funeral plans have not been officially released, but Walker's representatives have revealed a "global tribute" will take place. A message posted to Walker's Facebook.com page reads, "We've seen the most incredible outpouring of support from Paul Walker fans over the past week. To those who have attended the many tributes worldwide, posted heartfelt messages online, and supported his charity Reach Out Worldwide - we'd just like to say THANK YOU. "Your gestures of love have meant so much. We promise to keep you updated via Paul's Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram." Meanwhile, Walker will reportedly be laid to rest at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in California - the same cemetery where Michael Jackson, Brittany Murphy, John Ritter and Lucille Ball are buried.
