Report: Richardson autopsy under way

The New York City medical examiner is conducting an autopsy on the body of film and stage star Natasha Richardson, E! News reported Thursday.

The 45-year-old, British-born actress died Wednesday after she was taken off of life support, following a skiing mishap on a bunny slope that resulted in an injury that reportedly left her brain dead.

E! said the autopsy was being conducted Thursday and results were expected later in the day.
