Richard Jeni Death: Autopsy results Delayed For Several Weeks
by Jim Brogan

Richard Jeni suicide update: An autopsy was performed Monday on the remains of late comedian Richard Jeni. The official cause of death will not be announced for several weeks, according to the Los Angeles County coroner's office.

The Post Chronicle was the first news outlet to report his death.  Jeni, 49, was found Saturday with a gunshot wound to the head and later died at the hospital.

No suicide note was found at the scene, according to Lt. Fred Corral of the coroner's office's investigative division.

Jeni's agent, Jackie Miller-Knobbe of the APA Talent Agency, told the AP that workers there were "completely shocked."

The agency released a statement Monday calling Jeni's death "a true loss to the world of comedy ... he was one of the great standup comedians of our generation," the statement said. "His kindness and joy will be missed."

"Richard Jeni was a friend, a mentor and one of the best comedians I've ever seen," Chris Rock said in a statement he released on Sunday. "I'm really gonna miss him."

"Richard brought us all a lifetime of laughter," Jeni's family (The Colangelos) said in a statement Monday. "Our hearts are broken."

"What a loss and what a shame, as someone who gave so much laughter and joy, that he couldn't find enough to give it to himself," comedian David Brenner was quoted as saying on Monday.
