Zachery Tims Death: Family Delays Toxicology Results, Possibly Considering Court Order

According to our source, The New York City Medical Examiner’s office has delayed Florida minister Zachery Tims’ toxicology results, which are to determine the cause of his death, at the request of Tims’ family, who may be considering starting a court case to keep the results secret, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

Tims, the senior pastor of New Destiny Christian Church in Apopka, Fla., was found dead in his room at the W. Hotel in Times Square on August 12, 2011.

The NYC Medical Examiner office’s spokeswoman, Ellen Borakove, claims that the toxicology report and the results of the tests of the white powder found on Tims at the time of his death were not yet released because of the family’s “concerns.” She reportedly did not specify what those concerns were, but she confirmed that the Tims’ kin is looking to keep the results secret via a court order.

Meanwhile, the Orange-Osceola Chief Medical Examiner Jan Garavaglia stated Wednesday that it is not unusual for a medical examiner to hold the cause of a person’s death secret while the family considers taking legal action.

Borakove reportedly said that the autopsy and toxicology reports are not public record in the state of New York, although she indicated that the cause of death would be released to the press, together with the information about the white powder.
